I first tasted this when I was heavily pregnant with one of my younger two… I fell in love and had to beg for the recipe. It’s a good thing they couldn’t turn down a desperate pregnant Momma-to-be!
I want to thank everyone who said a little prayer and kept my daughter and son-in-law in their thoughts this past week as they were traveling across the country to their new home… at least it will be for the next couple of years until they are stationed elsewhere. I miss them so much already but I am so happy to report that they made it safely with almost everything they had tied on the back of their truck… the vacuum cleaner was not so fortunate. They are working on getting settled in and preparing to have their first Christmas away from family… I am so proud but it makes me sad too!

If you are like millions of other Americans you are probably looking for ideas to use up those turkey leftovers. Here are a few recipes that are perfect… just substitute the chicken with turkey! Continue reading “Susie Q’s Top Ten Ways to Use Up Turkey Leftovers”
Need an idea to use up some of the leftovers after Thanksgiving? Have you ever tried potato cakes? These are a favorite in our house and we have them whenever we have a pile of leftover Mashed Potatoes. These can be adapted to incorporated a variety of leftovers so clean out that fridge and see what you can find to make up a batch of these.
I love this stuff and when I was pregnant I would crave it… I always kept a batch made up. This is truly a recipe the kids can make by themselves!
This is super easy to make and tastes great with EVERYTHING! We have used it for veggies, chips, and crackers. You could probably add a bit of chopped red bell pepper to make it a little more festive. Continue reading “Spinach Dip”
This is the cheese ball recipe that I’ve been looking for… thankfully my Holiday Binder was still in the house and not packed away in the shed. My Holiday Binder has folders for every major holiday and party that we have celebrated and the recipes that we use for those events… such a timesaver! Kids can help with this too!
This can be made ahead of time and put in the freezer for up to a month. Just wrap the cheese ball tightly in plastic, before covering with nuts, and place in the freezer. Allow it to thaw completely in the fridge before covering with nuts and serving.
These are not the easiest rolls to make but these are probably my favorite rolls by far. They remind me of when we would go the Ryan’s and eat many, many years ago. When you pair these with the Whipped Honey Butter and Cinnamon Butter you have a match made in heaven.
There have been many times in the past that I had requests from neighbors to make batches of these for their Thanksgiving dinners. I always tried to make more than enough but somehow we never end up with any leftover rolls.
I probably wouldn’t try this out for the first time if things are rushed because these take a bit of time to make but they are so worth it. I also use my stand mixer to make these but they would probably be just fine with a hand mixer or by hand. These could be made ahead of time and then frozen until ready to bake. Continue reading “Mama’s Best Dinner Rolls”
I finally found the recipe! My original is floating around somewhere but I found a copy of it in my Holiday Binder in the Thanksgiving folder… right where it should be! My oldest daughter and one of my sisters love to make these around the holidays and everyone looks forward to them!
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!
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.
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”
As you all know the holidays are just around the corner and I’ve already been getting requests for my Fudge! I’ve also been getting requests for some of our family’s favorite recipes… some of which will be making it on our table here shortly!
If you don’t see what you are looking for be sure to check out Mama’s Recipe Box under the Keeper of the Home tab! You’ll also notice that there are no Cookie recipes listed as I have another post scheduled that will be dedicated just to the cookies that Santa loves around this time of year.
Some of these recipes are not that difficult and you can let the kids help… and make some great memories as well!
Grab a plate and maybe a big ole can of whipped cream and dig in!
