Ambrosia Salad is a creamy fruit salad loaded with pineapple, mandarin oranges, coconut and miniature fruit-flavored marshmallows.
You guys, December is seriously flying by. My to-do list is a mile long and just seems to keep increasing.
But for some reason, I’m really not that stressed out about the holidays.
Maybe because 30 people won’t be crammed in our house and there aren’t any games to plan or menus to coordinate. While I have all the feelings about Christmas 2020, it’s sort of refreshing not to feel the stress creeping in.
But that’s pretty much how I’m feeling in the moment. Ask me again in a few days and I’ll probably be all kinds of sad eating Oreos dipped in peanut butter, or hopped on cold brew wrapping gifts at midnight. Who really knows?
One thing I do know is that this simple Ambrosia Salad is one of my fave dishes during the holidays and it’s still happening even if our typical Christmas dinner is not.
Also, don’t @ me about this not being a salad. I get it. There’s no lettuce, but there’s a bunch of stuff tossed together in a bowl and that’s salad enough for me.
Homemade French Onion Dip is better than anything you can buy at the store, and much easier to make than you might think! You’ll want to dip everything from chips to carrot sticks in this savory dip.
One thing in my life that I am super particular about when it comes to food is chip dip – more specifically French Onion Dip. I’m not super picky when it comes to the dippable items. Basically just give me a chip, but I am a total chip dip snob.
When I was a kid, I fell pretty hard for the French Onion Dip at a local carry out in my hometown and now as an adult, I’ll drive miles to pick up that chip dip over just grabbing a name brand from the grocery store.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars are packed with two kinds of peanut butter and plenty of jam. These bars are a delicious way to turn a favorite childhood sandwich into dessert! I don’t know what it is about this time of year, but it seems like every September, right around back-to-school time, I get a […]
Apple Pie Bars combine a rich, buttery shortbread crust with tart apples and a nutty crumble topping for a hand-held version of apple pie that is perfect for everything from potlucks to holiday parties.
I feel like I reached a new level of adulthood yesterday.
While at Home Depot on the hunt for mums in a specific color and size – yes, I am already decorating for fall, judge away – I somehow ended up in the toilet seat aisle.
Well, I kind of know how I ended up there – I was browsing bathroom vanities because ours are falling apart after 4 years.
Gotta love builder grade products. Insert mega eye roll here.
Old Fashioned Baked Beans are hearty enough to eat as a meal and make a great dish for potlucks. These baked beans are easy to make but taste like they simmered all day long! Summer may be wrapping up and I may be excited about fall foods (all.the.pumpkin!), but I’m still not quite ready to […]

Summer may be wrapping up and I may be excited about fall foods (all.the.pumpkin!), but I’m still not quite ready to let go of cookout dishes.
Good thing I have a few cookouts planned before warm weather wraps up!
One dish that I know I’ll be taking with me are these Old Fashioned Baked Beans. I always keep the ingredients for them on hand because they are a huge hit any time I take them to a potluck or cookout.
Pineapple Cake is bursting with sweet pineapple and topped with cream cheese frosting for a moist, summery cake perfect for any occasion. Add in some coconut for an extra tropical flavor! If you caught my recipe for Chocolate Zucchini Muffins, you may remember that my sweet Elle has been setting up a mini bakery cart […]
Amish Macaroni Salad is a potluck classic! This pasta salad combines cooked macaroni, hard boiled eggs, crispy veggies and a creamy dressing for a side dish your friends will ask for again and again.

This might sound a little strange, but one of my very favorite foods is macaroni salad.
Although it’s not necessarily something I make very often in the fall and winter, it’s a staple around here in the spring and summer.
If you’re having a barbecue and I’m invited, odds are I’m bringing the macaroni salad and chocolate chip cookies or a lemon cheesecake, that’s just the way things roll. And let’s be real, who is going to complain about any of those?
Years ago I fell in love with a sweet macaroni salad that I had in Amish Country and I scoured the web and tweaked a recipe until we thought it was perfect and I’m finally sharing it with you!
