    Fruity Cookies

    I know, “Fruity Cookies” sounds a bit funny. I am really not sure where the name came from, possibly my Mama, but I just love saying it. These have been a tradition in my family at Christmas time since, well since I can remember. Fruit Cake is one of my very least favorite Christmas treats, although my husband absolutely loves it. These little cookies resemble them ever so slightly, however, I don’t believe I have met someone yet that has not loved these. They are also terrific to enjoy while dipping into a hot cup of coffee. I really hope that you will make a batch and try them. I…

    Can’t Eat Just One Gingersnaps

    Can’t Eat Just One Gingersnaps These Gingersnaps are absolutely AWESOME!!! You can’t eat just one, honestly, you can’t!! We even call them “Crack Cookies” LOL. When I had heard about these cookies, I called my mother in law (now former mother in law) and asked her to send her recipe. She sent me the recipe and the next day I decided I would whip up a batch.

I rolled the little balls of dough into the size of marbles and…

    Homemade Turkey Pot Pie

    Homemade Turkey Pot Pie Hey Y’all!! Here it is, the Home Made Turkey Pot Pie Recipe!! Well, it took me a bit to get this blog post out as things around here have been rather hectic these past couple of days. Now I want to say that there are two ways to do this. You can pick your vegetables from your garden and cut them up to use, which is fantastic. Or, you can grab a bag of frozen “mixed vegetables” from your local grocery store and use those. Both work just as well and we are well aware that there are those of you that work or don’t have…

The…

    As I promised, here are a couple more recipes to help you get the most out of your turkey! So here we go, turkey gravy and turkey stock. First, I wanted to answer the major question that was asked after yesterdays post “Super Easy Overnight Roast Turkey”. How many meals do you “actually” get when you cook your 20-22 pound turkey? As I am sure you can imagine, that will be subjective based on how many people you are feeding as well as how large your servings are. My family LOVES to eat so our serving sizes are pretty good size. Here is the breakdown on what we had from…
