Butternut Squash Praline Casserole

Baker Bettie Casseroles, Holidays, Thanksgiving 0 Comments

Butternut Squash Praline Casserole is a new take on a Thanksgiving classic! Roasted butternut squash is topped with a crunchy praline topping and toasted marshmallows! It is a new favorite in my household and will get rave reviews!  Happy Thanksgiving week everyone! I am currently in Florida for work doing the private chef thing, so Mr. BB and I actually celebrated our Thanksgiving for two last week. It definitely doesn’t feel quite the same to do it early, but I made sure to make way to much of everything so I could extend my feast with leftovers throughout the week! …

Overnight Eggs Benedict Casserole

Baker Bettie Breakfast, Casseroles, Christmas, Eggs, Holidays 14 Comments

Overnight eggs benedict casserole is my solution to wanting to serve eggs benedict at brunch but not wanting to be standing over the stove poaching eggs. No poaching required here! Just a silky baked custard over cubed english muffins with canadian bacon and a rich hollandaise sauce to finish!  Eggs Benedict is possibly my favorite breakfast dish ever. I have a really difficult time getting anything else when I see it on a menu. I have an endless love for eggs. I pretty much think they are the perfect food. So simple, yet so decadent and very versatile. With Eggs …

Creamy Cauliflower and Basil “Alfredo” Rigatoni (dairy free)

Baker Bettie Casseroles, Pizza & Pasta, Savory, Vegan, Vegetarian 20 Comments

This creamy cauliflower alfredo sauce recipe is incredibly simple to make and so luscious you would never know it was healthy or dairy free! Fresh basil brings a new level of flavor and makes this dish taste like real Italian food without any butter or cream! It’s almost to good to be true!  Throwing big handfuls of salty smoked almonds in a container of chocolate soy ice cream and eating it right out of the tub. Embarrassing or brilliant? I’m going to go ahead and pat myself on the back and call that one brilliant, because it is insanely good. But I’ll …

Good morning! I hope everyone had a lovely and relaxing Thanksgiving.  Our family sure did! We spent a long day eating, relaxing, playing games, and being thankful for everything we have.

Here are a few ideas for you to use up those leftovers! #10: Use eggnog as creamer for your coffee.

Chicken Pot Pie Casserole

Baker Bettie Casseroles, Chicken, Fall, Savory 17 Comments

This week hasn’t felt like real life. I have been in a daze. A hangover of vacation. And the “back to the real world” has been hard to adjust to. We got back from Costa Rica just about a week ago. Why do I always feel like I need a vacation AFTER my vacation. Just a few more days (or a week) built in to get up the motivation to unpack, get the laundry caught up, realize that I actually have to figure out my own meals, and adjust to the grind of work again. But I think I am …

Hub Grub: Creamy Shells and Cheese with Roasted Broccoli

Baker Bettie Casseroles, Gluten Free, Paleo, Pizza & Pasta, Savory 1 Comment

Hub Grub: A secretly healthy meal disguised as something decadent so my husband will eat it.  When I first met my husband he was introduced to me as “I.T. Chris” because he was the IT guy where I worked.  I wasn’t the least bit interested in him at first.  Not because he wasn’t perfectly nice, funny, smart, and attractive.  But because I was in a “serious” relationship with a guy who was a musician and had pretty eyes.  In my mind those were the important things.  I was blind to the fact that we had no real chemistry or anything to …
