• Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

    November 27, 2019

    My Husband is my absolute favorite person to cook for. He loves everything I make (like a good Husband should) and always does the dishes after. He is a steak and potatoes kind of man. When we started dating, I knew I needed a good mashed potatoes recipe. This has been my go-to recipe for…

  • Sweet Potato Souffle (Dairy Free, Gluten Free)

    November 26, 2019

    It isn’t Thanksgiving without a sweet potato casserole! It is basically dessert for dinner, which I am all for. Most recipes call for lots of butter and/or cream. My son, Asher has food allergies and since I’m breastfeeding, I had to eliminate those foods from my diet. I am currently dairy free, soy free and…

  • Fall Harvest Salad

    Thanksgiving is just around the corner! I LOVE this time of year. Spending time with my family is my absolute favorite thing about the holidays. However, the food is a close second.

    Simple yet perfect, caprese salads are one of my favorite dishes. I make them all the time during summer with ripened tomatoes and burrata. Now that we’re in winter, citrus fruits are at their peak season. So I decided to switch it up and add some oranges to the salad. You can add any kind…

  • Sausage and Apple Stuffing

    November 4, 2018

    I’ve had plenty of different kinds of stuffing over the years and found that my favorites always included sausage and apples. That was my inspiration for this recipe. I was going to use sourdough bread but the market was out of it so I decided to go with ciabatta and I’m glad I did. I…

  • Creamed Spinach

    November 4, 2018

    When most people think of Thanksgiving side dishes, they usually don’t think of creamed spinach. But they should! This is one of my favorite side dishes. I love making creamed spinach for a steak dinner with my husband. I started making this for Thanksgiving a couple years ago and loved the combination of the creamed…

  • Cranberry Sauce

    November 1, 2018

    There is serious debate over which is the best Thanksgiving condiment: cranberry sauce or gravy. I’m a sweets person through and through so naturally I prefer cranberry sauce. I love the combination or savory turkey and sweet cranberry sauce. Growing up, my Nonna always made her own cranberry sauce. Years ago when I asked her…
