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!

The Ultimate Patty Melt


Sometimes you just have to change up the good old american burger. I definitely accomplished that with this Patty Melt. It is the ultimate man sandwich to. I made it for the other half and well he was stuffed. Easy peasy and quick to! This is a perfect quick weeknight dinner. Serve it alongside some tator tots, fries or onion rings.

Red Robin Copycat Campfire Sauce



All I can say is TGIF. What a week! From sick kids to pouring rain I am so glad it's over. Remember these awesome Tator Tots? Well I have had several requests for the sauce on the side. Here yee have thee! This stuff needs to come with a warning label. It's highly highly addictive! We don't have a Red Robin in our parts. In fact we lack quite a few of the well known chain restaurants. I was browsing the old innerweb and came across this stuff. It  sure did sound intriguing I must say.

Baked BBQ Sweet and Sour Chicken {Freezer Meal}



I am not ready for winter. Setting the clocks back and it now getting dark at 4:30 pm well just sucks. I am such a summer girl. I love how it gets dark at 8:30 pm and it's nice a warm not freezing at dark. If I wan't freezing and dark I will go in the house in the a/c and turn the dang lights off! The joys of living on the east coast. But there is a ton of great things to!
So this dish right here let me just tell ya it's so good! If both my kids ate it, it's good.

Hidden Veggie Tortellini Bake




Ahhh comfort food! How I love thee so! Not to mention this version is hiding veggies and your kids will never know. Mine sure didn't. My son is the worst eater EVER! He will not eat his veggies at all. Most of the time I am sneaking them into dishes like this. He hasn't a clue. To me the vegetables in the meat sauce only make the sauce taste better adding tons of extra flavor. This recipe is my tried and true bologense sauce. I have been making it for quite a few years now.
