Easy Cheesy Patty Melt Dip with Video Presentation

My husband and I love patty melts, and we order them often when we go out to eat. This recipe idea came to me when I was thinking of appetizer ideas I wanted to serve at our upcoming small but annual big game day party. It’s an easy and delicious twist on a patty melt burger, and once you try it, you’ll be amazed how much the flavor of this Patty Melt Dip resembles the iconic patty melt burger, caramelized onions and all!

Festive Christmas Pasta with Red & Green Bell Peppers

I’m sharing this recipe for Christmas Pasta with Red & Green Bell Peppers as a recipe re-do. The original post was one I’d published in December of 2012, but it’s now time for some updated pictures. Below is the original photo from the post back in 2012. As you can see, it was in dire need of an update! The recipe stayed the same, but the photos (thankfully), haven’t.

Easy To Make Hard Boiled Egg Stuffed Biscuits with Ham & Cheese

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. This recipe for Hard Boiled Egg Stuffed Biscuits is one I came up with a few years ago in the hopes it would gain me entry in the iconic Pillsbury Bake-Off. Sadly, I never heard anything back regarding my submission, but I never forgot about this recipe and promised myself that one day I’d add it to the blog. Today is that day!

Easy To Make Pumpkin Shaped Sugar Cookies For Thanksgiving

Every year for Christmas it’s tradition for me to make my family’s favorite sugar cookie. I’ve shared the recipe in the past (way back in 2010) and dubbed it “Santa’s Favorite Cookie.” This year, I decided to mix things up a little so I used the same recipe (basically), and made pumpkin shaped sugar cookies for my family as a special surprise treat they didn’t see coming! Needless to say, the cookies were gobbled up quickly. 🙂

Hearty German Meatballs with Caraway Mushroom Cream Sauce

My recipe today for Hearty German Meatballs with Caraway Mushroom Cream Sauce is a “recipe re-do” from one I shared years ago on my blog (January of 2012 to be exact), which I called simply enough German Meatballs in Cream Sauce. This new version uses heavy cream in place of the evaporated milk I used back in 2012, does away with the beer completely and replaces it with beef stock, and I added a bunch of fresh mushrooms and stone ground mustard to pump up the flavor. Wunderbar!!
