Cheesy and Easy: The Best Family Gathering Dish

Time to share my new favorite recipe with you. I am excited to pass this on because it has to be the easiest dish I have ever made. I got the recipe from a coworker after I found out she makes a special dish for our potlucks and her family’s holiday meals.

I am sure this dish has a name but I’ve been calling it “Corn Mac and Cheese”. Now, I know from the picture it looks a little messy and gooey but it is delicious. The best part is that is can be easily modified to fit what you have available in your pantry. You’ll see below it calls for cheddar cheese but I have made it a few times with mozzarella cheese. I also am planning for Thanksgiving substituting the regular can of corn with another can of creamed corn. Read More

NPR Now Podcast

I don’t have a lot of time to get the headlines morning so I am currently loving the NPR Now podcast. It is around five minutes and I can get all of the details I need to move on with my day.


It is that time of year, but I just love real pumpkins. This past weekend we visited our local FFA’s pumpkin patch where we were able to get large pumpkins that are ready to be carved in the coming weekends.

Easy as 1, 2, 3 Appetizer

It is the most wonderful time of year. No, it isn’t Christmas – it is autumn, which in my house means sweaters, boots, apple cider, and football gatherings. This past weekend I tried Ally’s Sweet and Savory Eats “5 Minute BLT Frito Dip” and it did not disappoint.

This recipe is perfect for a potluck when you don’t have a lot of time to prepare or go to the store. I actually had everything on hand – minus the Fritos, but I called audible and used potato chips.


You need:

1.5 cups of mayo

8 oz of cheese

4 green onions

a small tomato, diced

1/2 cup of cooked bacon

1/2 cup of slivered almonds


Combine all of the ingredients, chill it for two hours, and serve.

Trust me this recipe is a must try this weekend for your game day festivities. Want another recipe to try for your potlucks, check out Sadie’s here.
