My favorite Holiday Recipe can be eaten year round, but at our house they are only made once a year.

Sausage Balls
4 cups Bisquick
1/2 roll hot sausage
1/2 roll regular sausage
10 oz sharp cheddar cheese

Mix all ingredients and mix well. Roll into small balls and freeze. Cook at 350 degrees until browned.


There would be a major rebellion if I didn't make this for a holiday meal. I make 2 of them when we have dinner at my cousin's because everyone loves it. Merry Christmas!!

Squash Casserole
2-3 lbs yellow crookneck squash
salt & pepper to taste
1 onion
1 sleeve Club Crackers (crushed)
8 oz block sharp cheddar cheese
2 eggs
1 3/4 cup milk

1. Chop squash & onion. Season to taste. Cook until tender. (I use a steamer basket)
Drain & set aside.
2. Put a sleeve of Club crackers in a gallon ziplock bag and crush with rolling pin.
3. Grate cheese.
4. In a small bowl, beat 2 eggs. Stir milk into eggs.
5. In a deep casserole dish, layer squash, crackers, cheese, squash, crackers, cheese.
6. Pour egg and milk mixture over top of casserole.
7. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes. (Cheese should be lightly browned on top).


Magic Cookie Bars

½ cup butter or margarine (1 stick)
1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 6-ounce semi-sweet chocolate morsels (1 cup)
1 3-ounce can flaked coconut (1 cup) I add a little more
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. (325 if you use a glass dish) In a 13 x 9 inch baking pan, melt butter. Sprinkle crumbs over butter. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumbs. Top evenly with chocolate morsels, coconut and nuts; press down gently. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool thoroughly before cutting.

I tried this new recipe for Thanksgiving and really liked it. Think I will use it again for Christmas and/or New Year's.

1 yellow cake mix
1 cup of pumpkin puree
1/2 cup of milk
1/3 cup of oil
4 eggs
1 teaspoon of pumpkin spice (or mix together ground cloves, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon until you have a teaspoon full)

Mix together and follow the baking instructions off of the yellow cake mix box.

When cool, top with cream cheese icing. Tip - remove the aluminum cover off of the icing and microwave frosting for 15 seconds. This makes the icing easier to spread on the cake.


This is not my very favorite but it is the newest and it is "slap ya silly good". I call it
Brown Sugar Chex Mix

2 or 3 large bags of original Chex Mix
Pecans ( as many as you like)
3 sticks of butter
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
Pour the Chex Mix evenly on cookie sheets in one layer, along with the pecans.
Melt butter and add the brown sugar. Cook over med heat until it carmelizes. Pour butter mixture over the chex mix (do not sitr). Put in a 350 degree oven for 8 minutes. Stir and return to the oven. Repeat the last step two more times. Cool and enjoy.
Like I said it is "slap ya silly good".

My little man's birthday is the 28th, so I've gotta win this!! My fave is pumpkin bread:

5 eggs
1-1/4 cups vegetable oil
1 can (15 oz.) solid-pack pumpkin
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
2 pkgs.(3 oz. each) cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt

In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs. Add oil and pumpkin; beat until smooth.
Combine remaining ingredients; gradually beat into pumpkin mixture.

Pour batter into 5 greased 5x2-1/2x2 inch loaf pans. Bake at 325 degrees for50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

Bread may also be baked in 2 greased 8x4x2 inch loaf pans for 75-80 minutes.


We love breakfast casserole. It is really easy, but not so good for you. Here is the recipe I use

1 lb of sausage
6 eggs
8 slices of toast (cubed and cut off the crust)
2 cups of milk
2 tablespoons of butter (to taste)
16 oz of velveeta cubed (give or take)

Cook the sausage and line the casserole dish with the bread cubes. Melt the butter and beat the eggs and mix it with the milk. Place the sausage and velveeta over the bread and pour the liquid mixture over everything. Cover and place in fridge overnight. The next morning, cook at 350 for about an hour.


My favorite recipe this year has to be:

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

1- 8 oz cream cheese softened

1/2 cup butter softened

3/4 cup confectioners' sugar

2 tbsp brown sugar

1/4 tsp vanilla extract

3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

3/4 cup finely chopped peacans

1. Mix in medium bowl, beat together cream cheese & butter until smooth. Mix in confectioners' sugar, brown sugar & vanilla. stir in chocolate chips. Cover & chill in the fridge for 2 hours.
2. Shape cream cheese into ball & wrap w/ plastic put back in fridge for 1 hour.
3. Roll the cheese ball into chopped nuts before you serve.

Serve w/your favorite cookie.(I used vanilla wafers & graham crackers)

It tastes like a chocolate chip cheesecake. The friend that gave this recipe to me rolled hers in butterfinger pieces and also one in toffee pieces.It is so yummy! You won't be disappointed:)
