I seriously will never buy ranch dressing again.  Greek yogurt is my new-found love.  I never cared for the bottled fat-free ranch dressing, so it's really hard for me to eat salads when dieting.  This is amazing, I will be eating many salads in the future.

I first made this dish about 3 years ago and apparently I had a photo of it on my computer, but did not have the recipe.  This one came out a little different looking but I think I used different seasonings the last time.  It's a great way to curb the turkey craving anytime of year.  Having turkey sandwiches the next day is a bonus.

I'm pretty sure Paula Deen and I have the same palate, I just wish I had her imagination and skills.  This corn casserole was so yummy!  I added the green chiles and only used 1/2 of the cheese and creamed corn that it called for.  I also substituted the sour cream with greek no-fat yogurt (my new love).  I will definitely be making this again.

This is a very plain and simple macaroni salad.  This is how my mom always made it.  This dish goes great with a barbequed or grilled meat.

In honor of my former mother-in-law who passed away on Monday.  She use to make these ribs every New Years Eve.  I would have never thought to boil ribs and then bake them.  I added the seasoning to mine because I like a little bit of kick.  These are so good, I ate almost the whole rack.

A blend of baked potatoes and mashed potatoes.  I use to make these all the time to bring to the lake.  You can make them up ahead of time and if you'd like to place them on the grill just wrap them in foil after you stuff them.  Then again if you grill them, they wouldn't be "twice baked".  Call them what you may, I call them delicious!

Oven baked chicken is pretty boring, so I wanted to dress it up a little.  I'm sure you know by now that I'm a pretty big fan of savory and sweet combined.  I had just purchased a big jar of pineapple preserves and was itching to use it for something.  So there you have it!

My stepfather use to make this all the time.  We usually had it served over boiled potatoes and had it for the dinner meal.  Since I was wanting to have it for brunch, I served it over a biscuit with browned ham.  I know most would think the combination of white gravy with carrots and hard boiled eggs is a bit odd.  It's very good, you really should give it a try.  Another great recipe for left over Easter ham.

The saltiness of the ham is offset by the sweet relish, and the mayo holds it all together.  This is a great easy recipe using left over Easter ham.  This ham salad makes a great snack sandwich or would even be good on crackers.
