Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Pie {My New Favorite}

This pie recipe is a twist on an old favorite cookie recipe.  It reminds me of the Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe you mix up almost the same ingredients as the cookie--- flour, brown sugar, butter, egg, and semi-sweet chocolate chips, and pour it in an iron skillet and bake.

Broccoli Cheese Rice Casserole {Granny's Recipe}

Broccoli Cheese Rice Casserole , bubbly, cheesy, rich and so very good.  The perfect old fashioned side dish that graces our table every gathering. This Broccoli-Cheese Rice Casserole goes way back.  In the 70's, it was on every dinner table as the star side dish .

Crusty Italian Bread {C-r-a-z-y Easy To Make}

Crusty Italian Bread is an easy homemade bread recipe made with two main ingredients, flour, and yeast.  The rest is salt and water.  It has the perfect crust, crunchy, slightly chewiness.  And the inside is dreamy soft, and delightful!  All you want in a loaf of crusty bread.

This Minestrone Soup is the perfect soup to warm you up.  It is chock-full of vegetables and just enough pasta to make it filling.  The base of the soup is simple, with sauteing an onion and going from there.  You build on flavors by adding the broth and some of the vegetables.  I am not sure if Olive Garden does this or not, but this is an Italian soup, and by adding a big chunk of Parmesa
