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}

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.

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}

If you’re not familiar with Gumbo, it is a thicker soup full of vegetables and spices. It has to contain okra, which, before I moved to {Read More}
