Cheesy Potato Sausage Soup – Instant Pot or Stove-top

Cheesy Potato & Sausage Soup. OMG Soooo Good! Make it thick or thinner if you'd like, add more or less cheese. Try it with Ham!!

Oh, but I do love me some soup. Especially in the fall. And since I had some sausage left after making Smoked Sausage and White Bean Soup in the Instant Pot the other day, I thought I’d make more soup, but take it in another direction.

Smoked Sausage & White Bean Soup – Instant Pot or Stove-top

This down home & classic bean soup is fantastic stove-top or in the Instant Pot!

It could very well be that I’m in denial! I am astonished each time it snows! I do live in Minnesota, but really? Snow twice last week and again the other day. But snow to me = soup, so soup it is. Again. 🙂

Easy Sausage & Potato Sheet Tray Bake

Fall has caught up with us, finally, with a fury. We’ve finally had our first real frost. And with it, a flurry of activity. Some herbs were potted and brought in and as many green tomatoes as we deemed prudent picked and placed in bags where hopefully they’ll ripen.

Italian Stuffed Mini Peppers

Such a great appetizer for the Holidays or Game time!

Somehow this year, I decided these mini peppers were the ideal appetizer and have made them a couple of times. I’ve also made a Pimento Cheese & Chorizo version, but these, stuffed with cheese, Italian sausage and cream cheese are really a favorite, too.

Classic Midwestern Stuffing or Dressing

Classic Stuffing: Just a great Midwestern Crowd Pleasing Stuffing. Like your Mom or Grandma made!!

Thanksgiving food, here in the US, isn’t really about the turkey – it’s about the sides. To me, it’s not Thanksgiving without mashed potatoes, gravy and of course, stuffing! Notice the explanation point. I get excited about stuffing, especially since I usually only have it once a year. Anything else can be as gourmet or as basic as you’d like, but the stuffing? It has to be this one.
