Sausage Stuffing Balls

This Sausage Stuffing Ball recipe was actually shared years ago on the blog as part of a Christmas post, but it’s so good that it deserves to have a post of its own! I started making these sausage balls when I was 12 or 13. That’s been…ahem…a few years ago. They were an instant hit at our family Christmas gathering that year and since then, have made the menus of multiple parties, holiday celebrations, and “just because we wanted them” {Read More}

Barbecue Beef Muffins

Sometimes you just need food that’s simple and comforting and easy to make. Actually, food should probably be like that most of the time! Barbecue Beef Muffins are one of my all-time faves in the easy comfort-food category. I discovered a recipe for these in a magazine decades ago and tweaked it to our tastes. The Super Trooper took a trip out of town recently and I knew that I was going to mostly be cooking for one all week {Read More}

Sissy’s Spicy Pimento Cheese

The honest-to-goodness truth is…I don’t like pimento cheese.  Bless me and my Southern roots, but I don’t.  Or rather I should say, I don’t really like any pimento cheese except for this one teensy little recipe that my sister came up with.  It’s a little bit spicy, a little bit pimento-y, and a whole lot of cheesy! My sister is super brilliant y’all.  I mean, she is so, so, so smart.  She is so smart that when we were in {Read More}

Christmas Eve Appetizers

Christmas Eve is one of my favorite days of the year.  The excitement of knowing Christmas Day is coming makes me so happy, but it’s really the annual family get-together that totally thrills my soul!  It’s been a tradition since I was a kid and I always look forward to it.  Seeing my family is wonderful, but we also have an awesome tradition of Christmas Eve appetizers and desserts.  In case you don’t know, I’d rather have appetizers than just about any {Read More}

Summer Squash Fritters

Summertime is one of the best times for produce.  There are so many wonderful things that come out of the garden–tomatoes, corn, watermelon, and squash are some of my favorites.  And it’s not unusual for me to crave them at any other time of the year either! Squash happens to be one of my absolute favorites.  There are a lot of different varieties, but the yellow summer squash is super versatile. While squash are delicious at least a dozen different {Read More}

When Strange Combinations Become the Best New Snacks…

It should be no secret to anybody in the world that I like to eat and I like to try new foods. Sometimes the things I try are totally random, as is the case with my newest favorite snack combination! My daughter actually suggested I try this (because she will suggest things like that and then not always try them herself) and it was definitely an awesome idea. She happens to believe that one of the very best salty snacks {Read More}
