It’s a great day for a holiday, don’t you think?

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow Americans! Today is one of my favorite holidays as a foodie, for obvious reasons – it’s all about eating!! I love taking a classic recipe and getting creative with it – putting my own spin on it, and really making it my own. I can’t wait to be able to share those kinds of recipes with my future kids and grandkids, and maybe one day in the future, they’ll call my recipes classics.

But before you toss that turkey in your oven, why not treat your family to an equally impressive breakfast? This Kielbasa Breakfast Hash is easy, filling, and delicious, and will take no more than 30 minutes to make, giving you that much more time to prep for your big dinner! [Read more…]

I cannot get enough pumpkin this season.


As in, I’m making EVERYTHING with it. Including baby food. (Yeah, I’m totally that person. In my defense, it’s really easy to blend up some canned pumpkin puree with a little milk or water, freeze it into 1 oz. cubes, then heat it up whenever it’s time to give the baby solid foods.)

Pumpkin is good in so many combinations and delicious for so many things.

But my favorite recipes for pumpkin are breakfast recipes.
