    Stuffing Balls

    Stuffing Balls Making this stuffing ball recipe really reminds me of when my Nana was still around for the holidays. I remember how as soon as I walked into her house at Christmas, I’d be bombarded by her four dogs and the amazing aroma of turkey and stuffing wafting from the kitchen. I also remember how Nana would greet me with a kiss, and how as soon as she walked away, Pap would ask me if I wanted a beer. Of course, I always said no, though sometimes it may have helped me deal with my family’s craziness! Just kidding! I absolutely love my family and truly enjoy being around…

    French Toast Bites

    French Toast Bites  For the past 4 years we have hosted Christmas dinner at our house. My family comes early Christmas morning and the house is instantly filled with laughter as we sip our coffee and open gifts .

    Homemade Crescent Rolls

    Homemade Crescent Rolls  I grew up eating these Homemade Crescent Rolls every year on the Holidays. My mom would make them for our Christmas eve party. I remember going to bed excited for all the Christmas festivities to begin while the smell of yeast lingered in the air. Oh how they left such a lovely scent. Even now, to this day, when I smell them baking it takes me back to my childhood slopping every last bit of my mash potatoes and gravy up with one of these delicious homemade crescent rolls. Forming the Crescents:  I am going to show you how to shape these Homemade Crescent Rolls. I tend…

    Uncle Chuck’s Hash Brown Casserole

    // Today I am sharing with you my brother’s recipe for hash brown casserole. He can cook, too! It kinda runs in the family. Although, he know’s I am the BETTER cook! (haha) But honestly my brother is such a great guy; I can always count on him. I always tell people he is my toughest critic; mainly because he is honest… brutally honest.
