Orange Marmalade Thumbprint Cookies -

I have been craving cookies for the past couple days.  Like, bad.  I’ve thought about going down to the hospital cafeteria to buy a cookie or two – but those gross things just weren’t going to cut it.  I needed yummy, warm, perfectly homemade cookies.

So, this weekend I finally had a break – and since I just bought a new jar of orange marmalade, I figured, why not?! Orange Marmalade Thumbprint cookies!  They are light, buttery, delicious – and definitely helped with that cookie craving!

Cheesy Sausage Pasta Bake -

Baked pasta dishes are one of my favorite dinner dishes to make…and to eat!  They are easy to throw together and pop in the oven, and there is nothing like digging into a hot, bubbling, cheesy pasta dish!

This Cheesy Sausage and Pasta Bake incorporates fun rotini noodles, mozzarella cheese and a jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce.  I added a sprinkling of panko crumbs on the top for a yummy crunch!

Sweet Potato Stacks -

Christmas season was crazy this year.  I have never been so glad to see January!  We had party party, event after event to attend.  Not that I am complaining…I am super thankful to have so many amazing friends and such a great family to celebrate the season with.

I had to come up with all kinds of fun appetizers and drink recipes to bring along to these parties…and these Sweet Potato Stacks were one of the best apps I have had so far.  They are quick and easy to make, so savory and delicious, and individual sized! So fun for serving and eating!
