These cookies could not be more simple to whip up and they’re ready to eat in just 15 minutes! They’re so scrumptious your kids won’t even mind the vegetables we’re adding into these cookies!

These chocolate chip cookies are SO yummy! And I like to consider them healthy too, because whenever a vegetable gets added to the mix that food immediately should be declared healthy. Look ma, I’m eating my vegetables (wrapped up in brown sugar, butter and chocolate chips, but still..)!

In all honesty though, they’re a great way to add a little bit of vegetable to your regular cookie, or to introduce zucchini in a fun way to a picky child who’s anti zucchini.     You know I like to be sneaky and add in hidden vegetables whenever I can!

What isn’t there to love about stuffed peppers?  Fresh peppers, meat, tomato sauce, rice and mozzarella cheese.   Yes, please!   The seasonings add so much flavor and you can make it as spicy or mild as you want.

Creamy Mashed Potatoes

The best creamy mashed potatoes recipe made with cream cheese.  Easy to make, no hand mixer required! This is my #1 requested dish at Thanksgiving dinner!

This is my go to, make you weak in the knees, mashed potatoes recipe.  I started making these a few years ago when I wanted to try a new mashed potatoes recipe for Thanksgiving.  Now I make them all the time for Sunday dinner (usually a pot roast) and every holiday dinner. 

The best creamy mashed potatoes recipe made with cream cheese.  Easy to make, no hand mixer required! This is my #1 requested dish at Thanksgiving dinner!

Why These Mashed Potatoes Are The Best

  • They’re made with cream cheese which makes them extra creamy. 
  • There is no hand mixer involved in these potatoes.  What?  There is no hand mixer involved in these potatoes.  Seriously.  How do they get so creamy then?  Next point..
  • You boil these potatoes for a pretty long time until they’re almost ready to fall apart.  This makes a hand mixer not necessary, as just a spoon and a potato masher makes them blended pretty quickly.
  • You can make these ahead of time, no problem.  For holidays I usually make these the night before so the actual holiday cooking is a little more relaxed.  I just throw them in the oven 30 minutes before we’re ready to eat.

These delicious, savory Mashed Potato Patties are crispy on the outside and soft and creamy on the inside. They’re the best way to use up your leftover mashed potatoes and make for a tasty side dish recipe!

It seems that whenever I make mashed potatoes, I always make way too much. No matter how much I’ve tried to calculate and estimate, at the end of the dinner, there’s always a leftover container filled with mashed potatoes. We could just eat them with tomorrow’s dinner, but day-old mashed potatoes aren’t quite as good as fresh.

Cauliflower – beautiful cauliflower, fresh from the garden, I love you.  You can’t go wrong with cauliflower, you just can’t!

We love this casserole, especially when we can pick the cauliflower straight from the garden.   We love this dish as a meatless Monday meal with crusty bread on the side.   But you can also serve the casserole as a side dish,  it’s perfect to pair with a meat at the holiday table.

Amish Potato Stuffing Recipe

Amish Potato StuffingA delicious potato stuffing recipe, just like the Amish make it in Pennsylvania Dutch country.

When I was a kid we would always hit up the weekend markets.  These markets were a mixture of flea markets outside with regular food vendors inside.  I come from near Amish country in Pennsylvania so on the way there it wouldn’t be strange to pass a horse and buggy going by.

Once at the auction first you would browse the treasures outside ($2 rainbow ceramic pie pan!) while working up a appetite.  Next stop would be the Amish stands outside where you could buy fruits and vegetables at discounted prices (hello 4 for $1 corn on the cobs).

Finally you’d go inside and grab lunch or head to the butcher to buy meat for dinner that week.    There was a popular place inside one of these markets that sold a chicken breast stuffed with potato stuffing.
