School is getting ready to start up again… holy smokes, where did the summer go? Technically, my kids still have about a month to go, and that’s only if the teachers aren’t still on strike. Please teachers… come to some sort of resolution about this, so my kids can get back to school on time!  Anyways, with school starting, you’re probably looking for quick and easy dinners. And boy have you come to the right place! This Spicy Italian Crescent {Read More}

Grilled Sausage and Crostini Stackers

Last May I flew to Miami for the BlogHer Food Conference and while I was there I attended a fantastic party by the bay, hosted by Wisconsin Cheese. The setting was fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed the delicious cheeses that we sampled. It was such a fun night! Luckily the cheese love didn’t end there. I was asked by Wisconsin Cheese to create a mouthwatering recipe using the cheese of the month – Muenster! Done! These Grilled Sausage and Crostini Stackers {Read More}

Pesto Spaghetti Carbonara

This Pesto Spaghetti Carbonara packs a flavorful punch with just 6 simple ingredients! Bonus- it’s ready in just 20 minutes! This past weekend I flew home to attend my grandfather’s funeral service. About four weeks ago he was diagnosed with late stage lung cancer and was given 2 weeks to 2 months to live. He made it two weeks before he moved on from this world. He was surrounded by family when he passed, and from what my dad tells me, {Read More}

You’re just 20 minutes away from a delicious, cheesy, One Skillet Baked Ziti. Even the pasta gets cooked in the skillet! Did I mention it’s just 5 ingredients?! FIVE. I’m in love with simple dinners, and this one left stars in my eyes. It couldn’t be any easier to make, since even the pasta gets cooked right in the pot. I paired the Baked Ziti with a caesar salad and some garlic bread, and wow – it was a winner! {Read More}

Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Ham

Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Ham

Last month my husband turned 35, and like every birthday we have a long standing tradition where you get your choice of dinner. He decided he wanted a Ham, Casserole Potatoes, green beans and Homemade Rolls. So basically he wanted Easter dinner. Not too shabby considering my daughter requested Macaroni and Cheese, edamame and Cheesy Monkey Bread Rolls for her birthday dinner. I was more than happy to test out a ham recipe since Easter was actually coming up. I {Read More}

Classic Lasagna Recipe

Classic Lasagna Recipe

I’m sharing my favorite Classic Lasagna Recipe with you today!! I love lasagna, and this easy recipe is prepared with the oven ready noodles so it’s quick to throw together. I like to bulk up my lasagna with spinach and ground sausage; the spicy sausage to be exact. Feel free to use a more mild sausage, or no sausage at all if you prefer. I keep the sausage and spinach a separate layer than the sauce so it’s easy to {Read More}

Sausage, Egg and Cheese Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole

Sausage, Egg and Cheese Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole

A few years back I was given one of those special all-in-one pans where you could prepare a whole meal in just one pan. It included a steamer basket, a special lid, and a VHS tape with  a stack of recipe cards… My friend most likely purchased it from an infomercial, and I have since pawned it off on someone else during one of my many moves. One recipe I did enjoy from that unique pan was a breakfast pizza. {Read More}

Tater Tot and Bratwurst Casserole

Cheesy Tater Tot & Bratwurst Casserole

Football season is here! That means it’s time for tailgating, appetizers, snacky, man-food type stuff. It’s also casserole season. There is a slight chill to the air, and a warm casserole just seems to hit the spot. This cheesy Tater Tot and Bratwurst Casserole tackles both the hungry-man-food problem, and the warm-up-your-belly situation. It’s the combination of sauerkraut, bratwurst, and crispy tater tots fused together with a creamy cheese sauce, then piled high with more melted cheese on top. It’s {Read More}

Sausage Filled Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread

Sausage Filled Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread

I remember specifically as a child being thrilled, no… beyond excited, to wake up in the morning and eat my Pancake Sausage Stick for breakfast. It was a rare occasion when my mom would splurge on the frozen sweet and savory Jimmy Dean breakfast, but when it happened I was one happy girl. Who could resist a warm sausage wrapped in a fluffy pancake… ON A STICK no less!?! It was magical when dipped in maple syrup. Magical. So the {Read More}

Avocado, Radish & Goat Cheese topped Polish Sausage

Now that we are in the full swing of summer, I have been craving hot dogs like no one’s business. And when I say hot dogs, I mean bratwursts and polish sausages. I leave the hot dogs for the kids. I shared with you a while back that I had started a vegetable garden in my backyard. This is the first time that my attempts at being a gardener have ever paid off. We have enjoyed a few delicious strawberries, {Read More}
