The Holidays and your favorite recipes

The holiday season will soon be here. 


Thanksgiving is a very special holiday for our family and usually centers around our family dinner.  

Mom’s Southern cornbread Turkey and Dressing is the usual star of the main meal.  There are other favorites that complete our meal.  My brother has to have Chunky Potato Salad, made the same way my grandmother made it.  I usually enjoy the Sweet Potatoes and baked Ham.  

One daughter loves the Green Bean Casserole and Yeast Rolls while daughter #2 loves the Ham and Cream Style Corn.

And of course, the dessert choice wouldn’t be complete without mom’s Angel Salad on the menu.  (Pictures and recipe forthcoming)


 I’m a dessert eater.  Below are some of my favorites.



Peanut Butter Balls



Southern Pecan Pie



Chess Pie



Sour Cream Pound Cake


And if you’re watching your sugar intake…


Low Carb Mini-Chocolate Chip Cheesecake


What special dish are you looking forward to?

  1. It all looks very good! My grandma used to make Pecan Pie but the Pecans always ended up on the bottom. Now I can of like it that way! lol

    • That sounds a lot like my Chocolate Chip Pie…the chocolate chips always end up on the bottom. 😀

  2. I’ve never heard of chess pie but I will try that… its just so easy!

    • It is super easy and my brother’s favorite! My mom also used to make a delicious Chocolate Chess Pie. 🙂
