The Best Pumpkin Pancakes! I have tried a few pumpkin pancake recipes that are great, but this one is fantastic! Perfect for an indulgent weekend breakfast or a special holiday breakfast. They are so tender and fluffy! Like having delicious cake for breakfast! But there's whole wheat flour in there and some squash even, so it is totally okay to eat as a meal. ;) These pancakes are my vote for Christmas breakfast this year! Start out …

Sweet Potato Casserole that is Super Easy and oh so Delicious!

sweet-potato-casserole-514x560
Stop what you're doing and add this to your holiday meal plan! It's seriously that good. I made it for a family gathering of about 30 people.  I only made one pan because I knew of several who weren't fans of "sweet potatoes".  Well, they have never had this.  It was passed around the table and was pretty much gone by the time I got it.  By that time some of the little ones were already asking for seconds!  What I love also about this dish …

Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce

Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce
Years ago I was introduced to fresh cheese tortellini with Alfredo sauce at a lovely restaurant at London's Heathrow Airport. I've been a big fan ever since.  I don't indulge too often, but I'm often tempted to.  Cheesy, rich, and classic, this copycat, Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce, is the easiest sauce you will ever make!  I cringe at the pricey bottled  stuff at the market.  Even if you think you can't cook, you can make this divine sauce in …

How to Make Cranberry Sauce

cranberry sauce
It sounds like many of you like the canned cranberries. But I much prefer these homemade ones! {Pin This} Last year I learned how to make cranberry relish. My father-in-law taught me how to make it. I have cranberries and pineapple that I got for free at Albertsons that I can use to make this. So I am making this today. It is best if it sits a few days in the fridge before Thanksgiving day. It is nice to be able to make something ahead of time …
