Slow Cooker Chili and Flour Tortillas

So I know I said I was going to focus on holiday recipes, but in this house slow-cooked chili is fall/winter tradition. It goes great on football Sundays. You assemble all the ingredients in the morning, set it and forget it…well not forget it. Just set a timer on your phone for 6 hours. It’s…

Thanksgiving Sweet Potato Pie with Toasted Marshmallows

Alright so I know I made pumpkin pie on this blog before, but y’all haven’t seen my Fall themed sweet potato pie with toasted marshmallows! You guys… I have fallen in love with my new pastry cutters. I was walking by a clearance aisle in Fred Myer and they were practically giving away Fall themed…

Cranberry Cheese ball/Cranberry Punch

I’m going to have to admit the early holiday cheer bug has bitten me. I get a little excited when I see holiday decorations for sale, when I see funny ugly Christmas sweaters, and when favorite seasonal produce goes on sale like Brussel sprouts and cranberries. Which brings me to this weeks post. I have…

Buttermilk Cornbread

Now that Halloween is over, I’m going to focus on holiday-friendly recipes. I love the holiday season. Comfort food, toasty fires, foggy cool mornings, warm blankets. This week I bring you buttermilk cornbread. Thick, creamy and an amazing base recipe to play around with. This is an easy side recipe with lots of room to…

Wonton Soup

Hey y’all! I was in hiatus last week. I was exhausted from going 110 miles an hour all October and seriously needed a break from everything. I usually try to enjoy October to it’s fullest but it just didn’t happen. As a result, I got sick which I’m still recovering from. I was craving food…

Flaky Chicken Pot Pie

It’s getting cold out and nothing could be better than good old fashioned comfort food to warm your belly. I treated my family to made from scratch chicken pot pie. The only corner I skipped was using canned cream soup which always guarantees the right density and creaminess to the filling. The pie crust is…

Pumpkin Pie with Candied Pecans

Happy fall to y’all! It’s such a magical time of the season. Leaves are at the peak of colour while swiftly moving along the sidewalks and yards. If you could walk into my house right now you would instantly smell warm pumpkin vanilla candles, and see my dining room table set for a spooky meal….

Moist Carrot Muffins

I went to a classroom training for work this week and it was catered by a local restaurant. A table full of assorted pastries. I had their carrot muffins, and I knew I wanted to make some at home. Carrot cake mix is often used for Springtime recipes but my son loves carrots so I…

Sunday Pot Roast

Now that it’s officially Fall and the temperature outside is getting colder, I can finally make comfort food! Comfort foods like roasted chicken, goulash soup, chilli, macaroni and cheese, and my childhood favourite beef pot roast! Which is what I made this week. This dish takes me back to a time in my childhood. Cool…

Butternut Squash Stuff Shells

It’s been a busy couple of weeks and I haven’t had much time to think about my favourite time of the season, Fall! I live for Fall every year, pumpkin spice lattes, sweaters, coffee next to the fire, crisp dewy mornings with red, orange and yellow leaves blowing in the breeze. Along with those things,…
