Lemon Cream Cheese Cookies Recipe

Try these delicious lemon cream cheese cookies with essential oil! These cookies are yummy - nice and soft on the inside with a light lemon flavor. All of the lemon flavor is from essential oil! You want the butter to be softened to about room temperature, but not melted. I let the cream cheese sit out with the butter too. Might as well! It only makes the mixing even easier. :) (Keep the cream cheese covered with plastic wrap or something... …

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

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

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... …
