Holidays; music, laughter, togetherness and food! That is what winter holidays bring to mind. No matter the occasion, it is celebrated with food while people gather..laughter overheard while music fitting the day, plays softly in the background. With our family, each person brings something. Grandma and her Chicken and Dumplings. My other Grandma always made a Sour Cream Pound Cake. Mama and her Blueberry Cake. Daddy always roasted the turkey. Papa always manned the grill. This Cranberry Coconut Cream Cake, if I had thought about it before, it would be my go to cake. So easy..as most of my recipes are, and bursting with delightful flavors! I know this would have been a favorite of my Daddy’s seeing how his favorite cake to eat was coconut. Make this refrigerator cake to take with you on your holidays visits and be prepared to be asked to make it again and again. Make this a day ahead as it gets better the longer the flavors have time to mingle. Don't forget to enter my HOLIDAY CHEER $600 VISA GIFT CARD GIVEAWAY...link below.

Winter holidays would not be the same without cranberries, oranges and pecans! For many years growing up, we would go to "the farm" (my precious Daddy's parents farm which he born in and later bought) and pick up pecans that had fallen to the ground. Hours were spent bending over or you may get lucky and find a gold mine, so to speak, and could sit while picking them up, checking them and dropping them in your bucket or sack. Cranberries came from the farmers market and oranges usually came from a family member's trees or a trip to Florida. This Cranberry Orange Pecan Bread is all about spreading Holiday Cheer! What better way than with a $600 Visa Gift Card Giveaway! Enter below!

Kyvan products are made with soul and amazing ingredients that are from the heart. Being a Southern girl, born and raised, I can relate to the love being poured into each bottle of Kyvan's products. Into each recipe made and shared with family and friends, their is a comfort that says home. Kyvan is owned by Pro NFL player Reggie Kelly. You can find out about Reggie, Kyan's products and how it all fits with faith, family, love of comforting food and community. I tried Kyvan's wonderful Sweet BBQ Sauce and was truly delighted! It is great on everything from classic BBQ Chicken and Pulled Pork to Sheila's BBQ Crock Pot Spaghetti and all the dips and sides you can think of, in-between! I decided to try it on bacon, among so many other recipes. My oldest ate it by the handful, used it to top pizza, while I added it to bacon ranch potato salad and BBQ Bacon Ranch Dip. Anyway you use Kyvan's products, you will definitely #appreciatethegoodness!

This is my go to cornbread recipe I make for my Chicken and Cornbread Dressing along with chili and soup. It's so easy, very light and moist! I always make cornbread in my cast iron skillet just like my precious Mama and Grandmas did. It just tastes better!
