P.S. Love Mom: Peanut Butter Balls (A Longtime Passed Down Recipe)

Soft and chewy peanut butter wrapped around crispy cornflake cereal makes this a sweet and salty treat to die for. This recipe is perfect for anyone that wants to start getting into candy making and has little to no experience working with sugar. It only requires 4 ingredients for addicting little balls of pure bliss. These things are also great for giving out as gifts and you could easily make a small army of little peanut butter balls in an afternoon.

P.S. Love Mom: Marshmallow Popcorn Balls

If you are a fan of the sweet and salty flavor combination, this is the perfect treat for you. Buttered popcorn wrapped in gooey marshmallow and filled with whatever candy you desire (my favorite is peanut M&M’s). This recipe is as easy as rice Krispies but personally, I think they are a whole lot better (seriously rice Krispies, you better watch your back).

P.S. Love Mom: An Easy Traditional Stuffing Recipe (gluten-free option)

Now I have never been a big fan of stuffing. I am more of a cranberry girl myself, but boy oh boy does Derek love stuffing. When taking pictures I sort of messed up my mom’s original recipe (or so I thought) and I’ve never seen that man more excited about having to remake something. He loves my mother’s stuffing. So what are you waiting for, don’t you want to know how to make the best stuffing in the world?

P.S. Love Mom: Cuppa Cuppa Cuppa – An Onion and Swiss Party Dip

Okay, so I know I always go on and on about how great all of my mom’s recipes are, but if they weren’t good, would I be putting them on here? This dip is super easy, just a cuppa this and a cuppa that and a pop-a-it into the oven (I tried). This dip is cheesy, and bit onion-y and a whole lotta good. Got a party and don’t know what to bring and you want to be the center of attention? This dip is for you!

P.S. Love Mom: Spiced Cream Cheese Caramel Apple Dip

Now, I know you have probably seen a variant of this dip at some point, dang, even just looking up the recipe I found hundreds of apple dips I didn’t even ask for, but nobody makes it like my mom does. Her recipe is always a hit at any party or get together, it is a breeze to make, and it makes a darn good snack. This dip has a hint of cream cheese, is perfectly sweetened, beautifully spiced, and has a dash of real caramel (shhh, its a secret 😉 ).

P.S. Love Mom: Pumpkin Pie (A Passed Down Recipe)

Pumpkin pie, the quintessential fall dessert that has somehow snuck its way into three holidays and I am certainly not complaining. This was/is a family favorite for us (which almost all in this series are, but this one was made the most often). My mother would make this for holidays, just because, and most importantly my sisters birthday (October babies unite). This recipe is relatively easy compared to the other recipes I’ve read (some pumpkin gymnastics people be tryin’ to pull), and it will be a showstopper, promise.

P.S. Love Mom: The Perfect Apple Cider (A Passed Down Recipe)

This is one of my favorite recipes from my mom. It’s warming, sweet, deliciously spiced, and has a bit of butter that really brings it all together and coats your throat for the ultimate cold-weather beverage. This recipe is super simple, and whenever my mother used to make it people would act like she spent hours slaving over it (which is not the case).

P.S. Love Mom: Pot Roast (A Passed Down Recipe)

Growing up this was one of the meals I never really craved but didn’t hate having either. However, when I went and got my first apartment, moved out, and started to see family less, I called my mom to give me the recipe. This dish means a lot to me and just feels like a big hug from her whenever I make it. I was a little shocked to find out that this recipe is so easy and just gives me more of a reason to want to make it often.

P.S. Love Mom: French Toast – A Passed Down Recipe (Series Debut)

Growing up my mom was the best person in my mind (and still is today). She always let us have friends over, do whatever we wanted (or so we thought), and she always made breakfast on Sunday morning. One of the family favorites for breakfast was french toast. Now, growing up I didn’t know that my mom made the best french toast, so when I would go to friend’s houses or restaurants and have french toast I was always disappointed. So here is the super secret french toast recipe! 😉
