Toffee - Our Kind of Wonderful


K’s family makes toffee each Christmas, and it’s a tradition that he absolutely loves. We celebrated Christmas super early this year, around Thanksgiving, as my sister was in town, so come December we didn’t really feel like it was Christmas. To help with that, I decided I would try my hand at making toffee, as […]

Ghost Pretzels - Our Kind of Wonderful

Ghost Pretzels

We try to be somewhat cute neighbors and do treats for Halloween and Christmas. Some years we are more ambitious than others, like last year when we did our Hocus Pocus S’mores Pops. I’m hoping as A gets older she’ll love to join in, and we can do more cute, and fun foods! For now, […]

Cranberry Sauce - Our Kind of Wonderful

Cranberry Sauce

This cranberry sauce was a happy accident! We had left over filling from our divine Acorn Squash we made, so I decided that, rather than wasting it, I’d try my hand at some homemade cranberry sauce. K (the husband) and I both LOVED it! We put it on top of our mashed potatoes, and I can […]

Acorn Squash with Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

This acorn squash with apple and cranberry stuffing is an amazing addition to most any meal, especially a Thanksgiving one. This is a K approved stuffing recipe – and is oh so tasty!  

Apple and Cranberry Stuffing - Our Kind of Wonderful

Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

I’m always on the lookout for new stuffing recipes, since I hate stuffing, and want to find one that I like. This one is the best I’ve tasted so far, which for a sausage hater, is saying something. K absolutely loved this, and is all game for it being our go to Thanksgiving stuffing recipe. […]

Cornbread Stuffing with Sausage and Apples

Cornbread Stuffing with Sausage and Apples

We’ve tried quite a few different stuffing recipes since being married, and this is K’s favorite. I’m not a stuffing lover, or even a stuffing fan, but I make it each year because K pretty much gets a little kid seeing Santa giddy over it. We found this recipe from the awesome Pioneer Woman.

Sweet Potato Casserole - Our Kind of Wonderful

Sweet Potato Casserole

I’ve tried other Sweet Potato Casseroles, the one with marshmallows on top, some healthier versions of this one, etc, and this one is still, hands down, my favorite. We had this for every Thanksgiving growing up, and I looked forward to it each year. Thanksgiving isn’t really my thing, food wise, as I don’t like […]

Maple Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Cranberries

Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries

Brussels sprouts have quickly become a staple in our cooking, and we even get excited to pick up a bag or 2 of them from Costco each month. I’d never had brussels sprouts until getting married. You see, my dad hates them, and he doesn’t really hate any foods, so I just always assumed they […]
