The youngest of my three sisters, Tracy, has gone on an Instant Pot (IP) bender of late. Don’t get me wrong, we enjoy using our IP just like Tracy! I just like kidding her.Continue reading

In my notes, I let you know about some of the changes I’ve done to the recipe. How I change it depends upon what I’m hungry for and what the spicy beans will be served with. It’s a versatile recipe. So, get in here and give it a go!Continue reading
I enjoy kimchi which is interesting considering spicy was not something we had in our food growing up in north central Wisconsin.Continue reading
This is a really tasty recipe that I came across a few years ago. I don’t remember where it came from and I’ve modified it to include more garlic, onions, and parmesan cheese. There’s a fair amount of garlic in this recipe but it tastes so good with the parmesan cheese. It’s just yummy.
I’ve made this many times and it’s always a hit. Also, this recipe scales well. The recipe is enough for 2 to 3 people. For the 2019 New Year’s Eve party we held, I made enough for 14 people with no problem. Just increase everything based on how many potatoes you use. So, on to the recipe!Continue reading
This recipe is a perennial favorite in my family and with friends. In fact, I was asked to make it and bring it to the Super Bowl party we attend on February 3, 2019.
It was originally part of the 2009 edition of the Family Recipe Collection by my oldest daughter, Jen. She snagged the recipe from Paul Deen. We’ve made a small adjustment from the original recipe with increasing the oven temperature from 350° to 375°. Seems to bake better for us.
If you don’t care for spicy food, you don’t need to add any jalapeno. However, I urge you to add some and try it. This isn’t crazy spicy unless you add a ton and it does much for the overall flavor of the dish. On to the recipe!Continue reading
Thanksgiving. What a wonderful time of year as it marks the beginning of the holiday season!

This recipe is part of the 1998 collection.Continue reading
This recipe was the first one listed in the first edition of the Tracy’s Christmas cookbook. So began an annual tradition that celebrated 20-years of recipes in 2018.
I have no idea the origin of this recipe. This recipe has been in our family for years as I remember from my youngest years Mom making them. The photo I used was the best representation of these treats.
Many thanks to my sister, Tracy, for starting this and shepparding it through all the years!Continue reading
Growing up and continuing with my family, this was a staple at our holiday meals. It was difficult determining if this should be considered a side dish or a dessert as it works for both. So, I tagged it for both.
My Mom’s version was 3 layers; jello mixture, sour cream, and topped off with the remaining jello. In my version, I go with 5 layers. Just seems to look more festive to me. Whichever way you do, it’ll still be tasty!
Note: This recipe was first published in the 2007 family recipe collection.Continue reading
