FINALLY, the Holidays have arrived!!! This means it’s time to break out the cookbook and start making all the traditional favorites!  I know for our family we have several that are a must for not only Thanksgiving, but for all the holiday get togethers.

2008-11-16_cornbread-stuffingMy Aunt is responsible for our amazing Cheesy Potatoes; she has to make at least 2 pans to feed our family!  I have tried many times to make them just like her’s but they are just never the same!!

My mother always brings her yummy homemade stuffing – the recipe has been passed down from my grandmother and is a must for any Thanksgiving dinner.

I am always responsible for the Green Bean Casserole.  It’s very simple to make and everyone loves it, even my husband who is not the biggest fan of veggies!   I use the classic Campbell’s recipe with a few improvements.


1 can Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup

½ cup Milk

1 teaspoon soy sauce

Dash of ground black pepper

4 cups cooked cut green beans

1 1/3 cut French’s French Fried Onions.

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ to 1 cup Shredded mild cheddar cheese

Stir the soup, milk, soy sauce, black pepper, garlic powder, ¾ of the shredded cheese, and 2/3 cup onions into a 1 ½ casserole dish.

Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until the bean mixture is hot and bubbling. Stir mixture and top with remaining Cheese and onions.

Bake for an additional 5 minutes or until onions are golden brown and cheese is melted.
