Layered Texas American Dip

This recipe is perfect year round, but the fresh ingredients are perfect to balance out the heavy food of holiday meals.  “Mexican” food is good anytime, right?


Sausage Balls

Sausage Balls are a holiday staple at our family gatherings and the fact that this recipe has only 3 ingredients makes them even more fabulous!  Yum!


Chex Mix

If you’re a nibbler or grazer like me, Chex Mix is a perfect appetizer. But it is also a perfect gift to give to neighbors and friends.  There are a million different flavors that you can make – sweet, savory or salty.

Bacon-Cheese Tartlets

Whether you make these for a brunch or dinner, everyone will love them.  Who doesn’t love crescent rolls?!  I love the flavor that salsa adds to this recipe!


Sweet and Sour Meatballs

My Mom got me hooked on these meatballs…they are musty – you musthave more. :)   Little Smokies are also wonderful fixed this way.  You can serve them with rice as a meal or with toothpicks as an appetizer!

Sausage Dip

This recipe is from my college years.  My sister and I worked as teachers aides and one of the teachers always made sausage dip for events.  Sausage, cream cheese and rotel make up this recipe. Sooooo easy and sooooo yummy!
