One of my mama's famous dishes is her chicken casserole. It's super simple and a great fall staple. There's nothing like a good casserole or crock pot dinner as you move into the colder months, right?!


You can add or takeaway from this, as I have throughout the years to make it my own- my secret ingredient to making it super fluffy is to add a dollop of sour cream. My sister never liked the broccoli, so Ma would always make 2- one with and one without. For me, the cheese and the other ingredients make the taste of the broccoli pretty well, for a girl who doesn't love those tree-shaped veggies so much.

Baking and cooking has long been a love of mine. There is something about sharing food I've created with my hands for those I love. It's a long language for me to get to host, feed, and partake with my friends and family. So, I hope you enjoy the recipes on our blog for your own family.


Happy Fall Y'all,

Lauren
