  • Tater Tot Casserole

    Hands down this is one of my FAVORITE childhood recipes and to this day I love making this, having friends over and sharing that feel-good meal with one another. Growing up as a kid we ate dinner as a family every night around the dinner table, typically with Home Improvement on in the background…anyone else?!
