Stuffed Mushrooms with Dipping Sauce

I love mushrooms of every kind and I am always trying to add them to so many dishes because of their amazing health benefits. This is one of my favorite mushroom recipes.

I don’t like that you don’t use all of the mushrooms and a whole pepper but those can be frozen and used later.

Old-Fashioned Cornbread Dressing

I got asked for this recipe but I didn’t have it on the blog so I scrounged around my holiday binder to find it… just in time for Turkey Day! This is fairly similar to my Homemade Bread Stuffing except that it is made with cornbread… that is another recipe I’ll have to look for when I get everything unpacked! You can just make the recipe off the back of the bag and it will be fine!

Fun Fact:

What is the difference between stuffing and dressing?

Well, many times stuffing is referred to as being cooked inside the turkey… hence the name while dressing was usually cooked in a separate dish. Many people in the South refer to it as dressing no matter how you cook it.

Mama’s Old-Fashioned Green Beans

I know that we eat green beans a lot around here and often I mention them with our meal plans but it just occurred to me that I’ve never posted the recipe that we use most often. You can use this recipe for just about any kind of bean. We love our string beans and pole beans like this as well as lima beans!

You can find more green bean recipes HERE. Continue reading “Mama’s Old-Fashioned Green Beans”

Favorite Sweet Potato Casserole

This is probably my most requested recipe at holiday meals. I don’t know where I got the recipe but it has been around our home for quite some time now. If you don’t care for the topping you can always leave it off or substitute some marshmallows in its place.

Momma’s Green Bean Casserole

I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe before now. I wouldn’t have realized it if my oldest daughter hadn’t asked for the recipe. I figured I might as well share it with everyone because things are getting a little hectic around here as we have packed up a few things as we prepare for our new home and who knows where this recipe might end up?

One of my fondest memories from when I was little was sitting on the back porch with my Mom-mom helping her with the beans and other goodies she had harvested from her garden.

As I got older I did this with my kids as well. I can still remember when we had a Doberman, named Mac, who loved green beans. The little stinker would run right up to the washtub and steal the beans every chance he got! Continue reading “Momma’s Green Bean Casserole”

Smushed Taters In The CrockPot

Oh my! I think I’ve finally recovered from my Thanksgiving food coma… have you? I’ve tried to hold off on posting too many new recipes lately because some of you may not even want to think about cooking so soon after Thanksgiving but I just had to share this one. These are so good I could probably eat a whole batch by myself!

A while back I posted our Smushed Taters recipe and that was a hit in our home. Well, at one of the Thanksgiving square dance dinners we attended there was a dish that reminded me of this recipe except that it had been made in the crockpot. Hmmm…. what? Why had I never thought of this? I didn’t get a chance to get the recipe but here is how we made our version last night. Which was another smashing hit when served with Steamed Asparagus and Broiled Parmesan Tilapia!

I think I want to give this a try with red skin potatoes or cauliflower at some point. Continue reading “Smushed Taters In The CrockPot”

Nanny J’s Carrot Souffle

This was one of the new recipes we had for Thanksgiving. It was really quite delicious and if you have picky eaters that don’t like carrots you may want to give this a try. Mr. Awesome doesn’t like carrots but he was the one who requested this.

Your family will be singing the ‘Carrots Are Divine’ song after eating this!

Fried Cauliflower/Vegetables

I had never heard of Fried Cauliflower until my little sister came to visit one time a few years ago. I was pregnant at the time and not able to eat a lot of anything but this was something that I was able to eat and keep down. I have made this several times since then and everyone loves it.

I’ve heard of Fried Broccoli but never tried it however I do believe you could substitute broccoli (or other veggies) for the cauliflower in this recipe. Continue reading “Fried Cauliflower/Vegetables”

Fried Green Tomatoes

Oh my gosh! I really love summertime and fresh veggies from the garden. I love a fresh tomato sandwich but sometimes those green tomatoes tempt me and I have to rob a few off the vine to have some fried green tomatoes. If you haven’t had a fried green tomato you should really try out this recipe tonight! Continue reading “Fried Green Tomatoes”
