Grandma’s 👵🏻 Apple🍏Pie

My sweet Grandma used to make loads of these apple pies around the holidays. So does my Aunt June. My mom and I decided to make a bunch this year. With a few calls to my Aunt June and my mom’s memory of her mom making these, I think we got these exact. This apple pie is simple and perfect in every way. We have several in the freezer for Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. I can’t wait to dig in…

Homemade Chicken Pot Pie(Slow Cooker Version)

This chicken pot pie would be perfect to serve on Thanksgiving if you are only 2 or 4 people, especially if you swapped the chicken for turkey. You don’t need a big assortment of food, just a dish like this made with love.

Thanksgiving 🍁 Menu

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. The weather in Florida has finally cooled down. We can keep the windows and doors open so the fresh air flows through the house. Once we start cooking, the familiar smells waft through the air. There really is so much to be thankful for.

Pumpkin Muffins

I regularly make Whole Wheat Banana Muffins. They are healthy and delicious. We eat them for breakfast and can easily pack them in the lunchbox for school. But when the season of fall arrives I like to switch them up a bit and make Whole Wheat Pumpkin Muffins. We all love them just as much as the banana muffins and it gives us all the feelings of fall.

Apple Cake🍎

Apple Cake🍎
I have been waiting to get my hands on my mom’s old cookbook. It was in storage for a couple of years while they got settled here in Florida. Now that I have it, I may not give it back.

Weeknight Chili 🌶

I call this weeknight chili because it is super quick and easy and perfect for a busy weeknight meal. But this would be a perfect comfort meal on a Sunday night as well.

Stuffed Mushrooms

This is the item that will never be removed from our Thanksgiving menu. This has been on the Thanksgiving menu in our family for generations. They are amazing. We devour them that day and they are even better leftover. I have to make 50-60 mushrooms for about 8 people! These are also great to serve on Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve. They look fancy and everyone will love them!

Mita’s Avocado 🥑 Salsa

The other day I was minding my business when I got a text from Mita with her recipe for her Avocado 🥑 Salsa scribbled on paper along with a pic. I wonder what other recipes she is keeping from me…

Escarole and Beans

Escarole and Beans is one of those meals I grew up on. My mom always made this. It is simple, healthy and delicious. It can be served as a soup or tossed with pasta, which is how we like it. One of the reasons I love pasta is that it can be paired with so many things. All you need is a little pasta and you’ve got Sunday dinner…

Kid-Friendly Breakfast Options

The school year is definitely going to be different this year. Are they going or not? Online? Who knows! I think I have one going and one online. But with that being said I’m going to need to have some healthy breakfast options available.

Aunt Esther’s Potato 🥔 Pancakes

Aunt Esther and Uncle Joe lived in this cozy two family house in Brooklyn. Before we even got to the door we would smell the potato pancakes cooking. I love taking a traditional family recipe and giving it a modern twist. These gluten free potato pancakes did not disappoint!
