Creamy Chicken and Herb Dumplings

My Aunt Janie was an AMAZING cook! The first time I had Chicken and Dumplings was sitting at her small kitchen table. It was one of the most delicious dishes I’ve ever tasted. The soup was creamy and full of flavor, the dumplings big and fluffy. Over the years I’ve added a few of my own twists…like herbs, to those big fluffy dumplings. This is a great winter one pot meal that my entire family loves…

Buttered Cod

I live with a die hard Fisherman! Not only does he love…let me say that again…L.O.V.E. to fish…he loves to eat fish! I don’t think there’s a fish he’s met he didn’t like! So he was extra happy when I whipped up this quick, easy…super easy…tasty Buttered Cod dish! Ready in under 10 minutes from start to finish! It’s a delicious regular “catch” at this Nest…

Slow Cooker Beef Stew

The Holidays are over and the temps are dropping at the speed of light! Like my Dad used to say “It’s colder than a Well Diggers….”. Well…ya know! (wink-wink) Which means only one thing…it’s time for a big bowl of thick rich hearty stew! One of my favorites is this Easy Slow Cooker Beef Stew..it’s perfect for warming up your insides…

Snowball Cookies

One of my favorite cookies as a child are these snowy powder sugar coated “Mexican Wedding Cake” cookies. They’re still a favorite. What’s not to love? They’re a scrumptious buttery shortbread cookie loaded with chopped pecans and rolled in “snow”! Plus…you can actually build a snowman with them…if you try really hard…then you have to eat them all…because you “touched” them! Don’t ask how I know this…

Cranberry Orange Scones

One of my favorite breakfast “indulgences”? Scones! I love’em! Especially if they’re puffy, tender, moist, and buttery.
Add in my favorite Holiday flavor combination of Cranberries and Orange and you have an award winning scone! Perfect for your Christmas morning breakfast! Best part…you can make them ahead of time and reheat them in the microwave…

Christmas Cookie Exchange Round-Up

Last Week I hosted a “Virtual” Christmas Cookie Exchange with several of my blogging friends. It was so much fun! Today I’m putting them all together in one place with links to each cookie recipe so you can add them to your Holiday Cookie Platter this year…

Apricot Almond Bars

I love fresh apricots. I love dried apricots…and I L.O.V.E. apricot jam! You could say I’m an apricot fan. I know…weird. This highly overlooked fruit has a wonderful subtle flavor and texture uniquely it’s own! When dried and cut up… They sparkle like amber gems! That sound so glam! My kids used to call them…monkey ears! Perhaps more accurate? However, that kind of sucks all the glamour out of them. Regardless how you feel about them…these Apricot Almond Bars are a wonderful, super yummy, addition to your Holiday Cookie Tray…

Bacon, Shrimp & Corn Chowder

One of our favorite holiday traditions is serving various soups and chowders on Christmas Eve with lots of appetizers! We save the “big guns” for Christmas Day! There’s something cozy about a bowl of chowder in front of the fire the night before the “big guy” comes! This Bacon, Shrimp, and Corn Chowder was a huge hit with the hubs because of its rich robust flavors…and, of course… all those plump delicious Shrimp! It’s the perfect Christmas Chowder…
