Who doesn’t love a cream cheese ball loaded with bacon, cheddar, ranch seasoning, and green onion? Serve with crackers for a perfect holiday appetizer!
Growing up, our family would eat holiday dinners around 3 p.m. To hold us over until dinnertime, we would put out appetizers to snack on. My mom’s favorite appetizer was always a green onion cheese ball from our local grocery store.
Layer flavorful ground beef, veggies, cheese, cream of chicken soup, and tater tots until hot and bubbly for tater tot casserole the whole family will love!
Depending on where you live, Tater Tot Casserole may also be called Tater Tot Hotdish. No matter what you call it, it’s a family favorite, kid-friendly, weeknight meal that comes together simply and quickly for dinner. It’s easy, creamy and and oh so yummy!
Dinner in a Pumpkin is a casserole cooked right inside a pumpkin! As you serve it, scrape out the tender pumpkin to eat along with the delicious filling!
I get SO excited for Halloween! One of the things I always look forward to is Dinner in a Pumpkin, or pumpkin casserole. Since this dish is seasonal, it’s always really special when I get to eat it. So, I make it as often as I can while pumpkins are still available.
Copycat Del Taco Carnitas Loaded Fries tastes better homemade and can be made whenever the craving hits! Don’t forget the secret sauce!
To this day, my husband fondly describes the summer when he discovered Del Taco’s Carnitas Loaded Fries. For him, it was one of the worst summers he ever had. However, those fries were one of the things that helped him get through the hard times.
Ground beef, cheese, rice, green peppers, onions, tomatoes, and Mexican spices come together to make the best Beef Spanish Rice side dish or full meal!
Growing up, my family always complained when my dad made his Beef Spanish Rice. As a kid, I didn’t like the green peppers and onions in his recipe. It wasn’t until later in my life that I learned to appreciate my dad’s recipe.

Yesterday (March 23rd) was National Puppy Day! This day was established by Colleen Paige in 2006.
National Puppy Day is a special day to celebrate the magic and unconditional love that puppies bring to our lives. But more importantly, it’s a day to help save orphaned puppies across the globe and educate the public about the horrors of puppy mills.

My husband and I recently welcomed a new puppy into our home! We have a 3 1/2 year old Bernese Mountain dog named, Snugglepumpkin (Snugs for short), and we felt it was time for her to have a sister. Orla was born on January 9, 2019, and she came home with us on March 1, 2019.
If you are here, I’m sure you know how fun AND difficult it can be to train a new puppy. Everything is a brand new experience for them, and they are continually learning!
When 1 1/2 year old Snugs came home with us, it took us about 4 months to fully train her. Unsurprisingly, we are still in the process of training Orla. Thankfully, she has potty training down!
Buying training treats all the time can be very expensive, and many of the ingredients used in the treats are not very wholesome or “natural”. In an effort to save money, and to feed our girls a more healthy treat, I set out to make my own homemade dog treats.
