2017 is going to be a big year for me as I will finally be graduating with my doctorate. I don’t think it hit me until last Monday when I realized that it was all finally coming to an end and anxiety bomb rushed me. I feel like now I’m just a huge ball of “what next?”.

Keeping Holiday Tradition with My Grandmother’s Broccoli Casserole

This post is sponsored by Borden® Cheese. Thank you for allowing me to share my favorite brands with you. One of the things that I cherish from my childhood are the holiday dinners at my Grandma Dot’s house. Grandma Dot could throw down in the kitchen, whipping up some amazing dishes from scratch. Just thinking about her pound cake with the lemon frosting is making my mouth water. One of my all time favorite dishes was her broccoli casserole. It was everyone’s favorite dish. Our family tradition was to celebrate Christmas by having a huge shindig and invite the entire…
