Sour Cream Banana Bread

It's not Christmas yet. In fact, it's not even Thanksgiving. However, it snowed so much yesterday in Michigan that it sure feels more like Christmas than Thanksgiving. I'm talking multiple inches of snow, not just a dusting. Yes, I'm from the Midwest and am used to snow. No, we don't usually get that much here this early.

Since it feels and looks like Christmas, I think it's okay for me to talk about Christmas. **But for the record, I'm not a fan of the whole Christmas decoration thing immediately after Halloween**. Too soon. Too soon.

Lasagna with Meat Sauce

Lasagna is something that everyone seems to love. It's ooey and gooey and saucy and full of flavor. Plus it feeds a lot of people! Don't worry, I won't be mad if you don't like lasagna. Everyone has their own preferences. With that said, let's be real...it would be rare that you have someone over for dinner and they are disappointed when lasagna shows up on the table. Seriously.

Cheesy Vegetable Chowder

My husband and I are fans of thick, chunky, and creamy soups. I first made this recipe several years ago and it was *amazing* to begin with. It's slowly evolved to be even thicker and even more full of chunky vegetables. Oh, so perfect for a hearty and satisfying dinner. Especially perfect on a night like tonight where I am huddled in my jacket because I'm too cold to take it off. It's only been like an hour...or 2...or something along those lines since I got home from work. Maybe 3. Don't judge.

Simple Stuffed Cabbage

Good old stuffed cabbage. Also known as holubky, if you want to sound Slovak. I mean that's what my grandparents, who spoke Slovak, used to call this dish so it's for sure authentic. However, I'm not so sure how authentic this actual recipe is. It does have condensed tomato soup as the main ingredient and I'm *pretty* sure that the canned stuff didn't exist until fairly recently. However, it's how it was made at home since I was little and there's nothing better than comfort food. Especially when it's fairly simple to make!

Jalapeño Popper Dip

I originally made this dip for a party and it was gone in no time. In fact, I think I only got about 1 bite that I scraped off the bottom of the dish. Everyone was raving how good it was so of course I had to make it again to see what the hype was all about! Turns out the hype is that this dish is scrumptious and warm and gooey and makes your tummy happy.
