Favorite Holiday Recipes

 I know you all have heard me say it before, but let me say it again, my life has become so much easier since I started using a Walmart+ membership!  If you haven't used it yet, then now is the time to start being that the holidays are right around the corner.  

Just so you know, they offer unlimited free delivery from your store* ($35 minimum - restrictions apply).  Recently, not only was I able to order super fresh ingredients for all of my favorite holiday recipes (sharing all those below), but I was also able to order a few gifts as well! 


I decided on a whim to invite my parents down to do a little pre- holiday get together because we're not exactly sure how our holiday schedules will pan out this year.  So, I hopped online and was able to get everything I needed to make my fresh green bean casserole, cornbread stuffing, homemade stovetop mac and cheese, some amazing honey cured ham, and also some of the best sweet potato pie I've ever tasted!

Seriously, if you want to get a few pre-made items delivered, I cannot say enough amazing things about their honey glazed ham (which is already pre-sliced for you) and their sweet potato pie!  Oh yeah, and make sure you add those savory garlic knots to your order as well because they are melt in your mouth good. 



I was also very happy that I was also able to find a few last minute gifts for my parents.  We always give them gift cards to their favorite places and I always like to add in something fun as well. So these items below paired perfectly with their gift cards!  And my dad already let me know the bold and spicy grilling sauce is so good!



And I couldn't resist this fun plaid table runner along with this beautiful centerpiece, which was also available through Walmart+ and delivered to our door for free the same day! 



How fun are these Holiday Time ornaments!?  I thought they added such a fun touch to the table and my mom loved being able to take hers home with her. 


Our kids are obsessed with all the fun holiday treats that Walmart+ always has as well.  We haven't made the pretzels yet, but the hot chocolate pancake mix and North Pole trail mix were both gobbled up within two days!



And now for my three favorite go-to holiday recipes!  Seriously, these are always huge crown pleasers and they're all perfect to reheat if you have leftovers! 

After you make this fresh green bean casserole, you will never go back to the canned green beans again. We always include the fresh mushrooms, but you can leave those out and it's still delicious! 


This is my tried and true favorite southern cornbread dressing recipe, but I do always leave the sausage out.  I am sure it would be really yummy with the sausage, but I like it meatless since we always have a main meat with our meal. 



And last, but not least, the kids all time favorite stovetop mac and cheese.  I've been making this mac and cheese for a few years now, and there are rarely ever leftovers!

I am currently working on my gift guide for boys, and it's taking me a little longer than expected, but I am trying to make sure I truly find gifts that boys of all ages would like to receive! So in the meantime, I thought I would share a few recent outfits along with some life lately pictures!

Gift Guide For Parents and In-laws

Hello friends and happy Thursday!! Man this week has been a whirlwind and it has flown by so fast!! I asked you guys a few weeks back which gift guides that you wanted to see the most, and this was the second most requested one!! I always have the hardest time finding gifts for my parents and my in-laws, but I found some really good things this year, and a lot of them are currently on sale, like the instapot slow cooker below that is part of the amazon early black Friday deals

Instant Pot Aura 10-in-1 Multicooker Slow Cooker  // Pine & Balsam 3 Wick Candle // Bamboo Cheese Board Set // Neck and Back Massager  // Touch Digital Picture Frame // Stainless Steel Grill Set  // Cable Knit Fur Mule Slippers // Unisex Gravity Fleece Robe // Bamboo Essential Oil Diffuser //  Cast Iron Dutch Oven // Daily Blessing Set // Sherpa Fleece Blanket 


Instant Pot Aura 10-in-1 Multicooker Slow Cooker 

This bad boy is on major sale right now, I am talking it's normally $129, and it's on sale for $69!! I don't know any parent or in-law that wouldn't love to receive this! 




I feel like you can never go wrong with a good smelling candle, this would perfect to put in a little gift basket with these cozy pjs, and a bottle of their favorite wine! 


 Bamboo Cheese Board Set 

I love this cheeseboard so much, and I love that it comes with the knife set built into it! 



Okay I have heard SO many rave reviews about this back and neck massager, I am thinking I may need to also get one for myself as well!! 




I am not only loving the look of this amazing grill set, but the reviews are incredible, and you can not beat the $29 price tag! 


Cable Knit Fur Mule Slippers

These slippers will be arriving at my door today, and I am so excited! I will share them with you guys later today on instastories



I can't think of one grandparent that wouldn't absolutely love to receive this as a gift!  And wait for it... it can hold up to 40,000 photos on it!! 




Y'all know by now my love for my oil diffusers, and I have a few by this brand and love them! This design is new, and I am loving it for a bedroom or in a kitchen! 




This brand is the brand of oils that I have been using for over five years now, and they are amazing!! They come in many many different sets, but this would be a good set to gift along with the diffuser above. 





This robe not only looks amazing, the reviews say it feels amazing and that the quality is outstanding! 



I can't tell you guys how much I use my cast iron dutch oven this time of year! I use it so much that it usually just sits on my stovetop all fall and winter! This brand is such a good one, and I am loving the creamy white color! 





Last but not least, how gorgeous is this stripe fleece throw?!?! And the price point is SO good at only $26!!
