Mini-Cheddar Corn Dogs

I know, the ‘Big Game’ is this weekend … but I have a shocking confession to make. I kind of don’t like  football.  We are a hockey family which means we love the quick pace, the action, the inevitable bout of teeth shattering fisticuffs, and the blare of the goal horn when someone tips the puck in the net!  (In all honesty, I only like the Dallas Stars goal horn for obvious reasons.)  Football, for all its...

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,...
