I'd like to let it be known that this is the very first graham cracker gingerbread house that I have ever made. I recently found out about Taste of Home's Gingerbread Open House and decided that it would be fun little holiday craft to put together with my little lady, who just so happens to not only love craft projects, but graham crackers, candy, and miniature houses as well. I really wasn't sure where to start or how to go about it, but what I did know is that I'm a pretty creative lady, so I should be able figure it out.

I am so excited that the holidays are finally here! The magic of the season is alive and well in our home; the tree is twinkling, the stockings are hung, and the cookies will soon be made. The holidays are all about sharing, so why not share a bite-sized treat made with America’s favorite cookie this season? I'm talking about OREO cookie balls!
Have you tried these delicious little morsels yet? They are SO easy to make and absolutely decadent! Every year I think of making all kinds of homemade foodie gifts for my family and friends, but I always worry that the creation of some holiday treats will only add to the stress of such a busy time of year. Well, you won't have to worry about that with these rich, creamy OREO cookie balls! With just 3 ingredients and no baking, they are a breeze to whip up and would be the perfect treat to put a smile on someone's face this season. After all, everyone loves an Oreo, right?
I've included a few variations of the original recipe for you, but the possibilities for making them your own are endless! You've got to try these!

With the holidays upon us, I know we could all use a few new quick and easy recipes to help ease the hustle and bustle that surrounds the season. I know I can! This is a super easy and very tasty meal that is perfect for a busy weeknight or after a full day of shopping on the weekend.
Using packaged tortellini helps to save time and makes the casserole a little extra special! If you add the mushrooms, peppers and onions, it's like the flavors a sausage, pepper and onion sandwich morphed into a baked ziti or a lasagna. At least that's how I explained it to my husband when he asked what was for dinner.
Add this one to your must make list this month! And you're looking for more casserole ideas, try my Bruschetta Chicken Bake, Aunt Laura's Broccoli Chicken Casserole, or (one of my most popular recipes) Bubble Pizza!

There are probably a million and two spinach dip recipes out there. Some hot, some cold, some cheesy and some with extra veggies mixed in. Undoubtedly, with so many different variations, your bound to find one that suits your fancy.
I like this particular recipe because it is so darn easy to make. Not to mention that it's full of flavor! With just a few simple ingredients, you can whip up this tasty dip that is creamy, light and fresh. I've made it for birthday parties, Thanksgiving and just because! It would be a perfect addition to any spread.

Can I just tell you how excited I am that brussels sprouts are back in season? I am very, very excited. They are my favorite vegetable side dish! (Not counting potatoes. Potatoes trump every other food and are so awesome they are in a category all their own, in my opinion.) People that don't like these tasty little sprouts of yumminess are seriously missing out.
My guess is that most people that don't like them have either:
1. Never tried them or
2. Never had them prepared this way.
Brussels sprouts that are simply seasoned and roasted to golden perfection are absolutely delicious and so easy to make. Sprinkle some salty parmesan cheese over the top and it makes them out-of-this-world good. I can almost guarantee that if you don't already think brussels sprouts are delish, after you try this recipe you will! My husband and my four year old love it when I make these!

Sitting down to the table to eat as a family is a non-negotiable in our house, so managing to get a homemade meal on the table every night and still getting the kids to bed at a decent hour can sometimes be a struggle. I'm always on the lookout for fresh, new meal ideas that can get a delicious dinner on the table in a timely manner.
That's why, when I was asked to try one of Campbell's Dinner Sauces, I jumped at the chance! I saw that in addition to Skillet Sauces, they have a line of sauces especially made for the slow cooker. In my opinion, the slow cooker is a girl's (or guy's!) best friend in the kitchen for an easy weeknight dinner! I mean come on, what's easier? You just throw everything in in the morning forget about it. Even on my busiest days, I think I can manage that!
