I received’t be posting any new recipes till January, so at the moment I’m sharing a few of our long-time favorites that I’m planning to make over the subsequent couple of weeks.
Have you ever tried German Pancakes? Served with my Grandma’s Orange Sauce, they’re unforgettable. They’re the world’s best to make large popovers. These pancakes are baked within the oven, the place they rise tall after which gently fall, as an alternative of being cooked on a griddle like conventional pancakes.

Christmas morning there shall be each a Tater Tot Breakfast Casserole (I wasn’t kidding after I stated that is my new favourite breakfast casserole.) together with a Cranberry Christmas Cake ready on the counter.
Stuffed with tender chunks of pork, potatoes, and roasted inexperienced chile, Green Chile Stew is what I dream of when the climate begins cooling off every fall.

With spicy sausage, tender noodles, and a melty cheese topping, Lasagna Soup combines all of our favourite Italian components and simmers them collectively in a single pot.
A wintertime meal plan isn’t full in our residence if there isn’t a chili on the checklist. This Hearty Pepper Chili is each filling and recent tasting with loads of cilantro and lime together with loads of bell peppers.

There shall be walks within the snow (please deliver on the snow!) and lazy espresso in entrance of the Christmas tree each morning and evening.
