    Sunday dinner is a tradition I think every family should have.

    Roasted Fingerling Snacking Potatoes Snacking Potatoes are a delicious crispy snack or side dish. Roasted with sea salt, bacon and sea salt. These come out crispy on the outside and soft and tender in the center. I love making a mayo based dip for these potatoes with dill and or chives. These potatoes are addictive and delicious.

    Origins Of This Soup There are tons of versions of this easy Macaroni & Hamburger Soup on Pinterest. It goes by many names, my most favorite being, “Bachelor Stew”.

    Polish Hamburgers

    December 1, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    This is one of those family recipes that you never stop craving. These Polish Hamburgers are a meal that my Grandma always used to make. We would have them on weekdays, and sometimes we would even have them on special occasions. They were THAT good. Polish Hamburgers are called Klotlety or Klupskies in Polish.

The recipe for my family’s Polish Hamburgers is an easy one. I would describe them as…
