Breakfast Foods

Is there such a thing as Christmas on a fork? Why yes, yes there is, and it comes in the form of shredded hashbrown cheesy potatoes. Every time I smell these cooking, I am immediately taken back to playing Super Mario Bros on the big blue couch with my sisters while my mom made Christmas

Not only do I make it for Thanksgiving dinner but I unashamedly admit that I have had pumpkin pie for breakfast on several occasions. Whether you

Soups

Fall is my favorite time of year! I love the bursts of color, the cool air, and the anticipation of the holidays. The cool wind starts blowing, the leaves fall from the trees, and our fireplaces get cleaned out for the upcoming winter. I just want to wear cuddly socks, light a candle, and make
