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!

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}

Benedictine Spread…It’s Not Just For the Derby!

There was a little event a couple of weeks ago that we celebrated with a special menu.  Maybe you’ve heard of the Kentucky Derby? Now we are not hardcore gamblers, but we do all love horses (I’m the only person here who doesn’t ride) and the Derby is a great time to see some beautiful animals.  We tend to “ooh” and “ah” over the lead horses more than the ones who actually race though.
