Ham & Egg Breakfast Cups Recipe

This yummy recipe is reposted from a previous date and I wanted to remind you in case you have Thanksgiving Ham leftovers! :)

We usually travel every Thanksgiving, so I don’t typically have any leftovers. However, I LOVE my mama’s baked ham so much I asked if she would send some home with us. Like most, my kids and hubby aren’t typically excited about eating leftovers.

I have found that if I prepare a dish that is totally different than the original, sometimes they don’t even realize we are having leftovers. So, instead of traditional dishes with leftover ham, I made ham and egg breakfast cups for breakfast. An easy meal, packed with protein!

German Chocolate Pecan Pie Recipe

german chocolate pie

Every year we travel to Georgia to my mom’s house to celebrate Thanksgiving with my side of the family. It’s my mom’s favorite holiday, so when we first got married we decided that we would spend Thanksgiving with my family. I just love everything about Thanksgiving. In fact, I love everything leading up to Thanksgiving from bonfires, pumpkin patches, hay rides, cool fall mornings, hot chocolate and everything in between. If those aren’t enough reasons, two of my three babies were born two weeks before Thanksgiving, so we have much to be thankful for in our home. [Read more...]

Easy Kentucky Derby Pie Recipe


Easy Kentucky Derby Pie Recipe

With Fall creeping into the air, here’s a little reminder to give this pie a try this weekend, you won’t regret it!

Kentucky Derby Pie is a beautiful beast of a pie.  Simply put, it’s pecan pie with chocolate chips. But that is not what your mouth will tell you. Your mouth will tell you “OHMYGAH- thank you for this chocolatey, nutty, gooey, flaky, beast!”  It’s just so darn good your mouth will probably need another piece or two to do it justice.  You’d best bake a double batch…. (I do!)

Thanksgiving Blessing Snack Mix and Printable


My youngest brought home this adorable bag today from one of the teachers at school – it’s a Thanksgiving Blessing Snack Mix and I wanted to share it with you all!

This would be great to make up baggies for neighbors around Thanksgiving, or make up a bowl and set it out for snacking, along with the printable explanation :)  To make the mix, combine equal parts of Bugles, pretzels, candy corn, sunflower seeds, raisins or dried cranberries,

Each item in the mix represents a blessing to be thankful for – especially from the first Thanksgiving with the Pilgrims.

  • Bugles: Represent the cornucopia, a horn of plenty
  • Pretzels: Represent arms folded in thanks and prayer
  • Candy Corn: Reminds us that during the first winter, the Pilgrims were only allowed a few kernels of corn a day because food was so scarce
  • Seeds: Are a promise of future harvest if they are planted and well tended
  • Fruit: Is a reminder of the harvest gifts from the land
  • M&Ms: Are for memories of those who came before us
  • Hershey’s Kiss: Is a reminder of the love of family and friends that sweetens our lives

I found the same printable that his teacher used over here on IHaveNoGreaterJoy - so cute!


This is similar to another Fall snack mix we like to make called Scarecrow Crunch :)

10 Creative Uses for Coffee Filters

This is an older post but I was just using coffee filters for popcorn bowls this weekend for the kids and I thought I’d repost!

Jamie here, being frugal often means being creative – making do with less, and making it into more!  I told my husband that if I could get a gold medal for only one thing – it would probably be the ability to “Make Do” when I don’t have something that I need. :)

Coffee Filters are one of those handy things that have lots of different uses – here are 10 of my favorite creative uses for coffee filters!
