Who here is dreaming up Easter brunch recipes this week? We love good food around here & are excited to host our family and friends this Easter Sunday for brunch after church. We are sharing one of our favorite recipes this week in partnership with Daisy Sour Cream, a recipe that you may have heard us mention before because it is one of our very favorites, cheesy potato casserole!
This recipe is always a HUGE hit for large groups of people, our kids love it so much & as always, love helping prepare it in the kitchen. Daisy has introduced new Squeeze Sour Cream
which is ideal for little helping hands, rather than using a pull back top and messy container, the girls are able to take turns adding one of the main ingredients to this dish! Also, no mess
, which is huge when cooking with kids!
1 bag of frozen, cubed potatoes
12 oz Daisy Sour Cream
6 tbsp butter, cubed
1 can of cream of celery soup
1 1/4 cup of milk
3 cups of 2% milk Velveeta cheese, cubed
In a large mixing bowl, combine cubed potatoes, cream
of celery soup & milk. Squeeze in Sour Cream
& mix well. Add in cubed butter & cheese. Grease a large glass casserole dish & empty mixture into dish to prepare for oven. Place in oven at 350 degrees, no need to preheat. Bake for 45-60 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to prevent cheese from browning too quickly. Once taken out of the oven, let it cool for 5 minutes before serving.
One more thing I love about this recipe, is that it can be served to with any meal. If you’re preparing breakfast, it pairs so well with eggs & bacon, but can also be the perfect side dish for turkey or ham at Easter dinner. Any time our kids can help cook, and our guests ask for seconds, we know we have found a winning dish! 🙂 Hope you enjoy!
Happy Thanksgiving week, friends! We have packed up and headed back to the midwest for the holiday week, we are spending time with both sides of our family in Iowa and getting a sweet reminder of just how cold it is here. Before we left, we hosted Friendsgiving with some of our favorite people and I wanted to to share a few photos from the evening as well as some recipes that would be fun to try for the big turkey day this week.

We made our traditional turkey, cheesy potatoes, mashed potatoes & gravy, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole, rolls & cinnamon butter, with apple pie for dessert. I had a few recipes pinned to try this year, but we opted to keep things simple so I’m going to save them for Christmas dinner. Just in case you need a few ideas, Roasted Cinnamon Butternut Squash Brussel Sprouts, Broccoli & Cauliflower Au Gratin and this Salted Caramel Apple Snickers Cake!
We will be off the grid for a few days but I wanted to tell you all how incredibly grateful I am for each of you, for your readership & encouragement! I sincerely hope you all have the happiest holiday week with your families, may you all have SO much to be thankful for!!! xo
Happy Thanksgiving week, friends!
The girls are home from school all week so we have been working on all the really important things like drawing hand-turkeys and making cinnamon butter for friends. This time of year just gets sweeter & sweeter as the girls get a little older, I have never wished to freeze time so much as I do now. I love having Harper’s helping hand, spending time with her in the kitchen or doing art projects is something I have looked forward to my whole life. Eloise is at the most fun age of singing Christmas songs with all the wrong words and learning how to do new things every day. And baby Claire, oh I will forever love the sound of a squishy little diaper butt walking around the house & the way their eyes light up when they see things they love (like the Christmas tree aisle at Target).
We are looking forward to having dad home with us for a few days, our favorite Thanksgiving traditions and of course, all of the food! Our menu is similar to years past, turkey (in the turkey fryer!), cheesy potatoes, green bean casserole, roasted brussels sprouts (my bro is in charge of this dish), this amazing sweet potato casserole we made last year that I have been craving ever since, stuffing muffins, homemade rolls & cinnamon butter, and a pumpkin pie!
I wanted to share our Thanksgiving playlist, I always love having some good background music for dinner and these are a few of my favorites! If you have any good jams (or menu items!) that should be added to the list, be sure to leave them in the comments!
Wishing you all the happiest week ahead with friends & family!! XO
