Kielbasa Potato Bake

Here's a fantastic recipe my sister-in-law shared with me a few years ago. 
It's super easy - just mix together 5 ingredients:
Mushroom Soup
Chopped Garlic
Bake and serve!
This is the dish my 6-year-old always requests for dinner, and it's sure to please Mr. Meat-And-Potatoes Allen as well.  Usually I'll use skim milk, low-fat soup, and lower fat turkey smoked sausage instead of traditional kielbasa for a healthier version.
 Just click here to download the recipe.

The only downside is that there's rarely enough leftover to make another meal out of it the next day.

Source: Sister-in-law shared from here on I've omitted the salt and pepper because frankly the kielbasa is spicy enough for my family, and we really don't need any extra sodium in our diet.

Saffron Rice & Corn Side Dish

In the words of my 4-year-old daughter...  "I LOVE this yellow stuff!"
Isn't that music to a mother's ears?  :-)
I love this recipe because it's super quick and made with just a few ingredients that I usually have on hand - Cream of Chicken Soup, Canned Corn & Shredded Cheddar Cheese.  Just add some Vigo Saffron Rice....and Voila!  A yummy yellow dish that goes great with all sorts of things - we just had it with BBQ meatloaf and together they were fantastic!

Chicken Broccoli Burritos

This is a simple, yet tasty take on burritos. Perfect for a quick weekday meal.
I love this recipe because it's so easy to put together with just a few ingredients and it's much healthier than my favorite burrito at our local TexMex joint! If you can find Wegmans' Sante Fe salsa, I highly recommend using that - delicious! It's also simple to adapt if you want a vegetarian version - skip the chicken and add more broccoli.

Slow Cooker Mediterranean Chicken

This is one of my favorite winter slow cooker recipes! I picked up the original recipe years ago from some magazine that I've since lost and made a few adjustments:

My local Wegmans sells butternut squash already prepped into chunks, so this is a quick, easy meal to pull together.

The recipe is available to download here.

Bon Bon Cookies

The focus of our Christmas cookie trays each year are our Bon Bon Cookies. They're a light lemony flavor that are wonderful with coffee after a holiday meal. They also make elegant desserts for a bridal shower or wedding when topped with silvery sprinkles.
This recipe makes a lot - over 200 cookies - but it's easy to adjust down into smaller batches.

Mountain of dough, ready to roll......

The perfect shot glass to cut out the bon bons....

Hot cookies sliced and ready to be filled with jam...  Slight pressure on either side opens up the "mouth"...

Happy filled bon bons...

Iced, sprinkled, and plated...

You can download the recipe here. So what are your favorite Christmas cookies?
