Wow, where did the last couple of months go?  I am so behind on blogging that it just isn’t funny, but hopefully this post is the beginning of normal again.  Sorry I have been MIA, but C & I have been so busy that something had to give and that something was the blog.  Now I am ready to jump back in with some new photos and recipes. 

Thanks so much for sticking with me and reading what few posts I had pre-planned.  I haven’t been doing a lot of cooking lately and the few new things I have tried really haven’t turned out as well as I had hoped.  The new recipes planned for this week mostly come from tried and true sources like The Pioneer Woman and Plain Chicken so they should be yummy!

Have a great week, everyone, and I am so happy to be back to blogging!

Tomato macaroni soup (new) and cornbread

Taco ring with salad (2 nights)

Bacon cheeseburgers (new) with oven baked fries

Pizza night

Pioneer Woman’s sloppy Joes (new) with curly fries

Bubble-up Apple Pie (new)

Thanksgiving Tuesday

I decided to try something a little different this year.  I know I like to search blogs for holiday ideas and I think most of my readers do as well.  This post is a grouping of my recipes that would be perfect for a tasty Thanksgiving meal.  The only thing you won’t find here is a turkey recipe since I am severely allergic so it is always ham for me at holidays. 

Speaking of ham, here are three different ham recipes that I have tried and enjoyed:

Brown sugar honey glazed ham:


Slow cooker maple ham:


Citrus slow cooker ham:


Now that we have a main course, we need a few side dishes:

This sweet potato casserole is my absolute favorite:


Cornbread dressing:


Scalloped pineapple:


Butter roasted potatoes:


And last, but not least, Italian pasta salad:


Next, we need some quick and easy dinner rolls and you can’t go wrong with these mayonnaise rolls:


If you have any room left, it’s time for the dessert course. Yum!  There are so many options, but here are a few of my favorites.

Italian cream cake:


Apple cinnamon swirl Bundt cake:


Pineapple upside down cake:


Perfect pecan pie:


Turtle cake:


Orange fluff salad:

Orange Fluff Salad

Watergate salad:


And, finally, sunshine salad:


I hope this post gives you a little foodie inspiration for the holidays.  I know I am getting hungry!
