Caramel Pecan Cinnamon Rolls


I can remember as a child eating Little Debbie pecan rolls. They were surely my favorite snack. Just the other day it popped into my head that I have not had anything like them for years! Now I remember why I loved them so much after recreating them with these.

Chicken Parmesan Casserole




For years I can remember my grandmother always having a tub of I Cant Believe It's Not Butter in her fridge. She would always butter our bread for Sunday dinner with it. Sunday dinner usually consisted of homemade sauce, spaghetti, bread slathered with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and a yummy salad.  As I got older and learned to cook on my own I always bought it. I Can't Believe It's Not Butter surely does taste like the real thing! Gotta follow in grandmas foot steps right? Until this day I always have a tub of it in my fridge. It makes the perfect spread for a grilled cheese sandwich or on your morning toast.

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup





Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving? Minus the whole shopping part my menu is planned and ready to be executed! I cook for a crowd every year. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I just love the family gathering around good food. One thing I don't have to worry about is dessert. Thank goodness! I so didn't want to bake at all ever. The end!

Individual Sweet Potato Boats


With the holiday season in full swing I realize I am seriously having a hard time letting go of summer. It just gets so cold here! I do love the fall but winter is my nemesis. We just took down the Halloween decor and I have not even given the Christmas trees a thought yet. One holiday at a time is my motto. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. To me just having the family together all sitting down and eating really good food, well there is nothing better!
