Cheesy Chili Hash Brown Casserole

  This recipe for Cheesy Chili Hash Brown Casserole is so easy to make and will be on the table in no time. This is one of those casseroles that can serve the family on a weeknight or go to the next pot luck supper with friends. Expect calls for seconds, it is delicious!

Whats For Dinner Next Week, 10-29-23

We are getting ready for the little ones to pick up treat bags Tuesday evening. It is such a fun time to see all the kids dressed up and the Mom's and Dad's standing back from the door, beaming from ear to ear. Sure brings back some great memories.  Meal planning is going to be easy this week, it is cold and rainy so I will be looking for some cozy comfort foods, maybe a good week for some slow cooker recipes.

  Welcome to Full Plate Thursday and our Top Ten Views from last weeks party! Once a month on the last party of the month, the readers pick the features with page views and you picked some really good ones this month! We are getting ready for the little visitors that we will be having at our door next Tuesday night, they are always the cutest ever! We have been having so much fun going to the local festivals and eating so much (to much) good food! I am so happy that you could come to the party today, thanks so much for sharing your talent with us!

Nutty Oat and Raisin Bars

  Our Nutty Oat and Raisin Bars are just the perfect little snack. They are good with a cup of coffee in the morning, a lunch time dessert, how about with a cup of tea in the afternoon. I have to confess that I walk by the serving platter and can't resist anytime of the day. This is a very easy recipe with just a few ingredients that we just love to have on hand for snack time.

Whats For Dinner Next Week, 10-22-23

  Our meal plans this week will take into consideration our very busy schedule for the week. It is a great time of the year to be in the country. We are able to enjoy working in our fall and winter garden which is doing so good and taking care of a few outdoor repairs before the winter comes. We are also taking care of some fall cleaning projects and simple maintenance on the inside, we are just busy beavers here. I have checked what I have on hand in my canning pantry and freezer plus the recipes are some of my fall favorites.

Hello everyone, it is so good to see you here today. We are having so many fun fall festivals in our area with great fall foods. I attended one this past weekend and had a couple of great recipes that I want to try. We have some great recipes here that we are featuring from last weeks party, I sure hope you enjoy them! Isn't it fun to come to the country in the fall when every week that goes by the landscape colors change. Our fall foods are so warm and cozy, I can't wait to see what you will be bringing to the party today. Thanks so much for coming today and sharing your awesome talent with us!

Ham and Cheese Quiche

  We really enjoy a nice relaxed brunch especially  on the weekend. We love a good quiche to serve for our breakfast, lunch or dinner. This is one of my basic go-to quiche recipes. It is so versatile that I can add different herbs and meats as the seasons change. Our Ham and Cheese Quiche is just a great recipe to have on hand. It is easy, limited ingredients, and no waiting, just bake in the oven and it is ready to serve. Hope you enjoy the recipe as much as we do!

  Hello everyone I hope you are having a beautiful fall day. It's hard to believe that it is the middle of October already. Some of our trees are just beginning to show off some of their color. I am actually starting to get some lettuce and  herbs from my fall garden especially the products that I planted in the Veggie Pod. Oh my goodness, if I cooked all the recipes that I have out today, we would be having 5 meals a day. Sometimes I can look and look and nothing is right then there are times like today where it all looks good. I will be anxious to see what we end up with for our meal plan for the week.

Slow Cooker Cider Pork Chops With Cabbage, Onions and Apples

I love a great slow cooker meal that can be put in the cooker in the morning and you can smell it slowly cooking all day. I love it when the family comes home and says it smells amazing in here what's for dinner? Our slow cooker cider pork chops with cabbage, onion and apples is filled with flavor from the mix of the cider, chops, cabbage, onions, and apples with some special herbs, We have had great reviews on this recipe and when we have served it folks always want seconds. It is a real winner here at the cottage, enjoy!

October Food and Recipe Basket: 2023

  What's In Season and How Can I Use It? That is the question that we address in our Food and Recipe Basket. Fall garden production is hardy here because we still have temperatures that allow production to continue. Although we still have some of our summer production available, some of the all time favorite fall products are ready to harvest in the month of October. Some of these crops have been growing for several months. We planted some our winter crops earlier this month. I am excited for the fall fruits and vegetables with their wonderful warm and cozy flavors.
