Chorizo Cheddar Potato Puffs

It is almost time for the BEST part of Thanksgiving. If you would guess the big meal itself you would only be half right.  My favorite part of this feasting holiday would be the day AFTER the big event when the left-overs roam free!  I love left-overs more than the actual meal because they can either be reheated and eaten as is, or they can be transformed into all manner of interesting dishes like soups, casseroles, or in this case...

Creamy Pumpkin Polenta

I love the side dishes served for Thanksgiving better the turkey. Yep, I’m the one who piles on the stuffing, scoops up the sweet potatoes, and gets the greediest portion of green beans.  For me turkey is better the next day in sandwiches, casseroles, or chopped up and cooked into soups.  This is one meal where excess is truly acceptable, and when my family cooks Thanksgiving dinner we have at least 6 side dishes, sometimes 10...

Bacon and Egg Breakfast Casserole

I love a good casserole. Really, what’s not to love?  They are, with a few exceptions, easy to prepare, they can be made up in advance, and they are comforting.  When the weather turns chilly there is nothing I like better than a cozy casserole.  So, one morning a few days ago it was just a little chilly.  Not co but the wind had a little bite.   Obviously it was time to make a casserole!  While perusing a casserole cookbook,...

Chocolate Peanut Butter Double Layer Crisp Rice Treats

I know, the title is a mouthful, but then again so are these bars! While perusing the local specialty food market here in town I saw a giant bin of assorted ‘gourmet’ crisp rice treat.  Now, what you may not know about me is I am a complete sucker for any kind of crisp rice treat.  I rarely make them because around me they are dangerous.  I may have, and I can neither confirm nor deny this, eaten an entire pan all by...
