Tracking Pixel
In the South, nothing says the holidays like delicious pecan-topped sweet potatoes.  And my new favorite way to enjoy this classic Southern dish is Sister Schubert's Sweet Potato Pie!  Thank you so much to Sister Schubert for hosting me in her home, and for sponsoring this post.





A little bit ago in my Turkey & Stuffing Sliders post, I shared that I was going to have the great privilege of traveling to Sister Schubert's in Andalusia, Alabama to cook with her in her home.  Well I'm back, and I had an absolutely amazing time!  

Sister is truly one of the kindest, most thoughtful people I have had the pleasure to meet ... not to mention, the most gracious hostess, as well.  I'm so excited to share with you experiences from my trip, Sister Schubert's sweet potato pie, and 5 holiday personal touches I learned from Sister to make holiday guests feel extra special.  'Cause let me tell ya, Sister sure made me  feel extra special!

Turkey Burger with Dressing & Cranberry Sauce {aka: Holiday Burger}

It's your favorite holiday flavors in a burger!  Yes, with this Turkey Burger with Dressing & Cranberry Sauce ... which I like to call a Holiday Burger ... you can enjoy your favorite holiday flavors in one juicy and delicious burger.



I'm a huge fan of burgers.  And I'm a huge fan of holiday flavors ... especially stuffing {or dressing}.  So I figured, why not combine these loves?  And I'm oh so glad I did.  'Cause this Turkey Burger with Dressing & Cranberry Sauce is ah-MAZ-ing.

And the burgers are pretty quick and easy to whip up if you've got some leftover stuffing on hand.

Which was good for me yesterday.  'Cause I had just gotten home from a trip and needed something pretty quick and easy to whip up for dinner.

 Mmmm hmmmmm ... I was on an absolutely fabulous blog-related trip with these wonderful ladies.  Have you met them and their blogs?  'Cause let me tell ya, you should!

5-Cheese Stovetop Macaroni and Cheese {from "In the Kitchen with David®"}

Five yummy cheeses and just fifteen minutes on the stove top, and you've got scrumptiously creamy comfort in this 5-Cheese, Fifteen Minute Mac'n' Cheese from the new Back Around the Table: An "In the Kitchen with David" Cookbook. Thank you so much to QVC's resident foodie, David Venable, and his new cookbook for sharing the recipe and sponsoring this post.


Nothing says comfort like good ol' macaroni and cheese. It's my all-time absolute favorite comfort food dish, for sure. Growing up, I loved when Mom would make a huge pan of her totally yummy baked macaroni and cheese, full of flavor and oozing with gooey melty cheese.

But when delicious creamy macaroni and cheese can be made in 15 minutes on the stove top? Even better!

And when it includes a tasty combination of 5 cheeses ... and bacon?? Oh my. Comfort food at its finest. If this sounds great to you ... like it sure does to me ... you're going to want to check out the new Back Around the Table: An "In the Kitchen with David" Cookbook​.



The second book from QVC's resident foodie, David Venable, Back Around the Table: An "In the Kitchen with David" Cookbook includes more than 100 recipes, all featuring David's personal spin on traditional comfort food favorites.

Raspberry Jam Sandwich Cookies

I have a new favorite cookie ~ Raspberry Jam Sandwich Cookies.  Take two perfectly delicious homemade butter cookies joined together by gooey raspberry jam filling, and you've got yourself a little bit of cookie awesomeness.  

Raspberry Jam Sandwich Cookies


One of my husband's favorite snacks is a 'jam sandwich.'  I'll hear him rummaging around in the kitchen and when asked what he's doing he'll say, 'Making a jam sandwich.'  But his version of a jam sandwich is not what you think.

Nope.  My husband's version of a jam sandwich is butter and bread.  What???  Butter and bread make a jam sandwich?

In my husband's world, yes.

See, he says 'You take two pieces of bread, put butter on them, and jam them together.  Jam  sandwich!'

Well, I'm happy to say these Raspberry Jam Sandwich Cookies are not at all like my hubby's version of a jam sandwich.  No.  These delicious my-new-favorite-cookies actually ...

Holiday Mulled Cranberry Tea

Mulled cider and mulled wine step aside ... there's a new mulled beverage in town!  Mulled Cranberry Tea is my new favorite Fall and holiday warm spiced drink.  Give it a try - it'll be your new favorite, too.

Holiday Mulled Cranberry Tea

When the cooler temperatures come around, I'm all about warm drinks.  There's just something so comforting about holding a warm mug and sipping away.

And when that warm drink just so happens to have been simmered with the deliciousness of cinnamon and cloves?  Even better.  And even more comforting.  And let me just say, I'm loving that tea and cranberry have joined forces in this version of mulled comfort.

But when I first ran across the recipe inspiration for this Mulled Cranberry Tea in the Crock-Pot Slow Cooker Bible cookbook, I was really skeptical.  I mean, with cranberry as the major component, wouldn't it be tart?  Like, too tart to even enjoy?

Turkey and Stuffing Sliders with Sister Schubert's {& I'm Going to MEET Sister Schubert!}

Tracking Pixel
Oh you guys, I'm so excited!  Not only is it the time of year when I get to enjoy one of my favorite Thanksgiving treats ~ Turkey and Stuffing Sliders Sandwiches with Sister Schubert's Parker House Style Rolls ... next week I'm going to meet Sister Schubert herself!  I'm so honored to have been invited to Sister's home and to have Sister Schubert's sponsoring this post.




It's probably no surprise that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.  With all the fabulous food prepared for this single day, it's a food blogger's {and food lover's} dream.

And when it comes to making fabulous food for a delicious Thanksgiving meal, our family goes all out ... most of it prepared at the hands of my wonderful Mom.

One thing that's always on our Thanksgiving dinner menu?  ~ Sister Schubert's Parker House Style Rolls.

Now, let's talk about this for just a second.  Because we're pretty much a make-it-yourself-from-scratch household when it comes to our baked goods.

So if we're a make-it-yourself household, why do we have Sister Schubert's rolls for Thanksgiving dinner, you ask?  It's simple.  Because Sister Schubert's makes them better than we do.  No joke.
