Glazed Kielbasa Bites

A few months ago one of my sisters (I have four sisters) served a glazed kielbasa bites appetizer that was to-die-for. It was so good, I begged and pleaded with her to give me the recipe so that I could share it on the blog.  I'm just kidding, all I had to do was ask and she gave it to me. #sistersarethebest   To be completely honest, I also wanted to be able ...continue reading

Easter Buns

  Growing up, our Easter breakfast consisted of candy Easter eggs and Easter buns. My childhood Easter breakfast is one tradition that has continued in our house.

Pepperoni Pizza Dip

It’s soooo cold. My Christmas decorations are still out because the boxes are still in the attic and I can’t bare the thought of going up there. All I think about is how to stay warm. That got me to thinking about comfort food. I could make my slow cooker mac and cheese everyday but I am saving it for the weekend when everyone will be home to enjoy it, in ...continue reading
