        Just recently, I’ve had a strange obsession with gingersnap cookies and I have no idea why.  For the life of me, I couldn’t understand why I have passed up on these cookies.  I’ve been missing out big time. I love them and they’re my favorite go-to cookie. Cookies in general, are just so scrumptious. Wouldn’t you agree? Nothing puts a smile back on my face and even for my family members too!  We just gobble them right up. Do you know what else we also love having around the holidays? Cheesecake.  Oh. my friends what’s the holiday season without a slice or two of delicious cheesecake. -And by golly,  how about cheesecake bars? I absolutely love to make them for my family. So this year, I decided to make them but I wanted to add something different rather than the normal graham cracker crust that I use. So…

    Can’t decide on what to do with your Thanksgiving turkey leftovers? Try my Turkey Pesto Panini. It’s an absolute dream!     We’re only weeks away from one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving. I don’t know about you, but I can’t stop thinking about turkey leftovers. Is it just me? I know it’s been a long year of waiting, but Thanksgiving leftovers are simply the best!  It’s been so bad that I actually been daydreaming about it. In my opinion, having leftover turkey ready to eat the day after Thanksgiving, gets my heart pumping! So that is why I couldn’t resist making a JENNIE-O® OVEN READY™ Boneless Turkey Breast. I just couldn’t wait for the big day to come and I was craving Turkey Pesto Panini sandwiches. It’s like having all the delicious flavors wrapped up in one sandwich. My family goes totally insane when I make these sandwiches. But what…

    These Easy French Dip Beef Sandwiches will melt in your mouth! They’re so easy to make and your kitchen will smell fantastic! It’s the best French Dip Beef Sandwich ever!   Okay friends, let’s talk about how easy it is to make French Dip Beef Sandwiches. My very first time tasting a French Dip Beef Sandwich was in a restaurant. My son actually ordered it and of course, I had to ask for a bite. One bite just took me over the edge. I couldn’t believe that I’ve never tasted this delicious sandwich before. I looked at my husband and said, oh I need to make this at home. -And, I most certainly did. Many recipes that I found online for French Dip Beef require a beef chuck roast but they required a roast being slow-cooked so  I thought, “who wants to wait 5-6 hours for it to be slow-cooked?”…
