Frosted Lemon Cookies

Frosted Lemon Cookies

When life gives you a recipe for orange cookies, but you only have lemons, I suggest making Frosted Lemon Cookies. This time of year is so full of recipes, schedules, and grocery lists that even after you’ve checked them twice,  you’re more than likely going […]

Philadelphia Sticky Buns

Philadelphia Sticky Buns

I have been dying to make these Philadelphia Sticky Buns for about a year now, but I knew I wanted them to be a breakfast idea for Christmas morning. Christmas is pretty much the only day that it is completely OK to bombard your arteries […]

Cheesy Spinach and Bacon Breakfast Squares

Cheesy Spinach and Bacon Breakfast Squares

Does breakfast planning fall through the cracks when you’re getting ready for company? I usually thaw a package of English muffins (anyone else hoard them when they are BOGO?) and make sure we have some eggs ready for guests to prepare to their liking. Oh, […]

Sugarplum Bread

Sugarplum Bread

Do you know anyone who actually likes fruitcake? I know exactly two people and they are Granny and my mom/intern. In fact our mom asks for a fruitcake every year for Christmas and because no one else is willing to even try this dessert pariah seasonal […]

Thanksgiving Leftover Chopped Salad

Thanksgiving Leftover Chopped Salad

We all know that the very best part of Thanksgiving dinner happens the day after Thanksgiving. Or a few hours after you finish your pumpkin pie. So once you’ve stuffed yourself silly, and you are starting to think about your next meal, let it be this […]

Mashed Rutabaga

I first heard the term “friendsgiving” maybe ten years ago. I was still young and had energy to leave my house after 7:00 pm and didn’t really understand the concept. Why wouldn’t you just meet friends at a bar rather then fixing another big meal? […]

The Perfect Turkey Gravy

The Perfect Turkey Gravy

When we started organizing Granny’s big box of recipes, we found that a lot of them called for “grang.” Turkey grang, chicken grang, beef grang. We squinted at Granny’s beautiful cursive, googled grang, asked around. Nothing. Several recipes ended up in the “Grang” Pile and […]

Cranberry Sorbet

Cranberry Sorbet

For many people, myself included, the cranberry sauce element of Thanksgiving dinner is quite the afterthought. Judge away, but I happen to love the cranberry jelly right out of the can, still in the shape of the can. Although it doesn’t look like much, I’ve […]

Sausage Cornbread

Sausage Cornbread

Before you dot the i’s and cross the t’s of your final holiday menu, consider adding Sausage Cornbread somewhere -anywhere- to your lineup! It is a dish that can be whatever you need it to be. If you need a make-and-bake-ahead breakfast so you don’t […]

Granny’s Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Granny’s Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Ah, pumpkin pie. It is finally time to share Granny’s recipe for this old fashioned classic staple of every Thanksgiving dessert buffet. Even when we cannot pass another bite of turkey or stuffing past our lips without the fear of exploding, we can all still defy […]
