This won’t be a typical meal plan but just a modge podge of recipes that I’ll be making leading up to Christmas. We leave for WA soon and going to make snacks for our travels.

Cheese Blintz Pancakes – we have made these little gems a couple times now and I think I will declare that they are our new favorite pancake recipe. I love cheese blintzes but they are too much work for just a normal weekend breakfast but these cheese blintz pancakes taste so rich and yummy and they are easy to make too.

Whole Wheat Banana Bread – Making into muffins.- We all liked these and didn’t miss the white sugar.

Baked Oatmeal Muffins -These have revolutionized our breakfasts! They are so tasty, healthy and easy to make. We look forward to breakfast each morning and after I make a batch or two at the beginning the week breakfast clean up is so easy.

White Chocolate Pecan Brownies -I made these for company and for a birthday treat at Kalebs work. They are sooooooooooo good. I just loved the texture and flavor. I think I like them better than the traditional brownie (gasp!). So good paired with a cup of hot tea or coffee!

Honey Carrot Cake Bars- Hoping to make before we leave to help clean out our fridge of yogurt and carrots. :)

Homemade Fruit Roll-Ups - I hope I have time to make these and they turn out! I think they would make a nice treat on the plane ride.


Chicken Cordon Blue Lasgna – serving w/ garlic bread. -made this a couple weeks ago and froze half. Love it! One of my new favorite recipes!

Creamy Chicken Taquitos   and Carrot Apple and Walnut Salad 

Cranberry Slush (quick version)- Bringing to Thanksgiving Dinner.

Turkey Fruit Platter -Bringing to Thanksgiving Dinner.

Chocolate Shortbread Fingers -I made these for a potluck for Kalebs work. I’m just not sure what I think about them. I’m definitely not in love with them and probably won’t make them again.


Oven Fajitas-Adding zucchini to the veggies. Served with salsa, cheese and sour cream.  Crock Pot Refried Beans and mexi rice on the side (Didn’t make last week.)

Tex Mex Cheesy Beef Quiche -Serving w/ Roasted Broccoli (the link takes you to a meatloaf recipe but at the end she tells you how to roast broccoli and thats the only way I cook broccoli for a side) and fresh fruit.

Baked Oatmeal Muffins -  Made these last week on a whim and they rock!!!
