Russian Teacake Cookies

Russian Teacake Cookies

Russian Teacake Cookies are an easy and fun Christmas cookie made with confectioners sugar and chopped pecans. Also known as snowball cookies, these powdered treats will melt in your mouth.

These are an annual favorite around our house at Christmas and it wouldn’t seem the same if we didn’t enjoy these at least once a year.

You can also make them up to a month ahead of time and freeze them in a cookie tin or a plastic container until you are ready to serve them. Just separate each layer with wax paper or parchment paper.

You could also substitute walnuts instead of pecans, but I think the pecans give a better flavor.

Cheesy Shredded Potato Casserole with Ham and Peas

shredded potato casserole with ham cheese peas

This hearty shredded potato casserole is made with ham, peas, eggs, onions, and cheese. Serve for an easy weeknight dinner the family will love.

What’s better than potatoes and ham for dinner? I suspect this recipe was originally dreamed up as a way to use up leftovers around the house and turn out a decent dinner for hungry farm hands.

This is a versatile recipe as you could substitute beef or chicken in place of the ham or use corn instead of the peas. I used frozen shredded potatoes in this version, but you could also grate raw peeled potatoes and it would turn out just fine.

One of the things I found interesting is this recipe does not call for a cream soup. Next time I make this I may experiment with adding a can of cream of chicken soup as it will help thicken the sauce.

This recipe is from my mom’s recipe box collection.

A cheesy and creamy Au Gratin potatoes recipe made with hash browns, cheddar cheese soup and sour cream.
Author:
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6-8
Ingredients
  • 1-30 ounce package frozen Ore Ida shredded hash browns
  • 1-10 ounce can of cream of chicken soup
  • 1-10 ounce can of cheddar cheese soup
  • ½ cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 stick of butter (8 ounces or ½ cup)
  • ½ cup sour cream
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a 9" x 13" glass baking dish, evenly layer the entire package of frozen hash browns.
  3. In the glass bowl for the microwave or using a medium saucepan on the stove, heat both soups (do not add any additional liquid), butter, and onion together until smooth and combined.
  4. Add in the sour cream to the mixture and stir until smooth.
  5. Pour the wet mixture over the hash brown potatoes.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Notes
You can make this two ways: You can place the hash browns in the dish first and then ladle the cheese soup mixture on top. This will create a layered effect, but the soup will not sink to the bottom.

The second way would be instead to combine the cheese mixture with the hash browns before placing in the baking dish. That way it will be mixed all the way through.

Either way this is really good comfort food!

Homemade Fish Tacos

homemade fish tacos

A recipe for homemade fish tacos using fresh fish, cilantro lime rice, Chipotle Aoli and topped with Pico de Gallo. Serve fish tacos for a weekend dinner.

This is one of my family’s favorite recipes! It came about from a dish we had at a local brewery and restaurant and we loved it so much we decided to re-create it at home. Finding recipes online yielded hit and miss results, so this is our creation after making this recipe about a dozen times.

The entire meal will take you about 2 hours start to finish, so this is a good one for the weekend when you have more time to shop for ingredients and prepare it.

This is a great date night recipe and is good if you have two cooks in the kitchen as there is a lot of prep work, but the end result is totally worth it! My husband and I love cooking together in the kitchen. Do enjoy!

A recipe for fresh peach cobbler made with fresh peaches and a cake-like batter. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream for dessert or brunch.

When peaches are in season, this recipe is a family favorite and tastes like it just came out of Grandma’s kitchen. It is easy to put together and uses ingredients that you normally have on hand. You could even use fresh nectarines instead of peaches.

You can also use frozen or canned peaches in this recipe – the variations are noted below. I know many of you do not have good fresh peaches available at certain times of the year.
