Tom & Jerry’s

Tom & Jerry’s hold a special place in my Christmas memories.  If my Mom & Dad had the Tom & Jerry bowl and cups out, it meant family and loved ones were coming ver.  It was never rally about the drink; it was about the people.  I share this tradition with my kids today, and of course, remove the Rum and Brandy, as my folks did for me.

Thrifty Meatballs

This recipe was created by my mother and is by far my favorite comfort food. I would get so excited when mom would say that she was making it for dinner. I would always ask for the same sides – mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. It never got old.

Tater Tot Hotdish

This is such a midwestern staple if I do say so myself. My mom would make this often. Probably because it was an easy go to that covered all the nutritional basis and its very tasty. It is in my top 10 meals made that makes me think of home.

Special K Bars

These are by far my favorite dessert. My mom has made these bars for every holiday. Our entire family believes she makes them best and always requests them. I still have not made them as well as she has, but I won't stop trying! And I have never been able to resist taking less than 3 bars in a sitting.

Sarah’s Guacamole

This is my recipe that I have perfected over the years. I first made it to bring to one of our family gatherings (most likely, the 4th of July or Thanksgiving). My family has always done potluck style holiday gatherings, and I loved being able to participate by bringing great tasting sides and appetizers.

Greek Quinoa & Feta Salad

This is a wonderful, light salad that doubles as a full meal. I stumbled across this recipe a while back, and I can honestly say I could have it every week and not get sick of it. I was looking for something healthy and tasty and this fits the bill. I plan to keep this recipe in the family for years to come.

Corn Hamburger Hotdish

This recipe has been passed down from my Grandma Violet. Yet another midwestern staple. I like to call it a homemade hamburger helper. My mom would make this recipe often because it was easy to whip up and all ingredients were almost always on hand. I love this recipe for its simplicity and flavor, but who doesn’t love a good buttery dish.
