Wild Rice Mushroom Stuffing

Wild Rice Mushroom Dressing

Just in time for Thanksgiving, I’m sharing with you my recipe for wild rice mushroom dressing. This is one of my favorite variations on your typical dressing, and I love the flavor and varied texture that the wild rice provides. I’m a HUGE wild rice fan, so any excuse I have to use it I’m jumping on!

This dressing can be as super simple, or as incredibly complicated as you’d like it to be. You could do everything from scratch down to the bread and broth, or you can use some pre-made shortcut ingredients and speed up the process a bit. Either way, in the end you’ll have a flavorful, unique, and popular side dish that would be a hit on almost anyone’s Thanksgiving table.

We are off to Great Wolf Lodge today with all of the munchkins, so forgive my brevity of this post, but I didn’t want to leave for vacation without sharing my favorite stuffing with you! Wish us luck, and patience, and FUN.

Spinach Alfredo Dip

This spinach alfredo dip was a happy accident. I was originally going for more of a traditional spinach dip, and ended up with something much different, but pleasantly surprising!

Motorola Video Baby Monitor Review

IMG_2833

This is one of those baby products that I don’t know how I ever lived without. That isn’t something I say often, because I’m a minimalist when it comes to baby stuff. We have 5 kids, and have never owned a crib, changing table, diaper genie, or most of the other items I’ve seen so often on those “baby necessities” list. When my sister-in-law called me for monitor advice last year and asked if a video monitor was worth it, I told her absolutely not…without hesitation.

Caramel Roll Cinnamon Cake

Caramel Roll Cinnamon Cake

I love a good shortcut now and then. Caramel rolls are one of my very favorite things, but they aren’t exactly a quick and easy fix. It takes some pre-planning. Some mixing. Some rising. Some rolling. Some cutting. Some more rising. Baking. Totally worth the time and energy you put into them, but when I needed a presentable dessert last weekend for Sunday dinner that could be done in two hours or less, that wasn’t it.
