Aunt June’s Cream Cheese Cookies

My Aunt June has been making these cream cheese cookies for years. She is a pro. They are so delicious and the perfect size that you can just keep popping them in your mouth! I guess that’s really not a good thing, but it really is!

Fill em Up!

Believe it or not, when I make salmon everyone eats it! I never have any left over. It seems like when I make it, nobody gets filled. So I usually make this orzo side dish along with it to fill them up and it is amazing! I love pasta and I love vegetables, so for me this is perfect. I eat it leftover for lunch and it could be cold right out of the container…

Shoepeg Corn Salad

You can serve this as a dip along with Tostitos, but it is also a great side dish for a summer gathering. 

Rockin’ Ramen

So, my boys recently said the words I thought I’d never hear. “Mom, everyone else at school eats Ramen Noodles. Why can’t we have it?”

Game Day

If you ask me whose playing in the Superbowl, I promise you I will NOT know the answer. My husband says he stopped watching football once he started dating me. And that’s pretty accurate. No one in my family ever watched sports, so that is that. Lol. He can totally watch it, but my main focus will always be the food and the halftime show! But now that we have 2 boys, he has made a point to start watching it again. I’m ok with that, as long as there is some good food, not just a bowl of Doritos!

Sausage and Peppers

This is one of those meals that I make if I need to feed a lot of hungry people. You can make it all ahead and then just heat and serve. It’s filling and delicious.

If you are looking to keep it light for the new year, use chicken sausages and no bread. You can even add mushrooms to get more veggies in.

Baked Ziti with Sausage

This is a perfect baked dish for the holidays. I would make this ahead of time and do nothing in my PJ’s on Christmas. Sounds like a perfect Christmas Day to me…

Bread, Milk and Eggs!

Is it really French Toast Day? Well, this would be perfect since it’s a delicious, basic french toast recipe! Sometimes all you have in the house is bread, milk and eggs…
That’s all you need for this comfort meal.

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup

This is a perfect meal served with a loaf of crusty bread. It is a great opportunity to use the leftover ham from Thanksgiving.
