This Broccoli casserole was created by someone in my family that no one can seem to remember, but a Thanksgiving cannot happen without it. The thing is, it was made with completely processed, horrible ingredients, except the broccoli, so I had to do something about this situation.
Thanksgiving isn’t really about the turkey. Yes, I know it’s Turkey Day and it is the centerpiece, but in my opinion, the sides rule. What I love most is that every Thanksgiving feast has different sides. There are traditional elements like mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts, but hosts these days are stopping the show with inventive, eye catching, mouth watering sides.
Applesauce is a staple in our house during the Fall and Winter months. When apple season begins, all of the favorites come front and center and I make apple crumble, apple cake, applesauce muffins, anything apple that I can think of. Whether you are doing sweet or savory, there is room for apples in so many recipes.
Fresh garden greens at the height of ripeness have the most beautiful flavor. This summer salad is is the perfect example of eating real food, in an incredible healthy way, while being simple and full of flavor. All of the ingredients in this recipe are some of my favorites and at any given time in the fridge.
Mother's Day is right around the corner and most times, Moms end up cooking for Moms and no one really has the day off! You could go out for brunch, but I like to take it easy and do nothing.
These beauties were actually created from leftovers, sort of an after thought, and they turned out fantastic. My kids love potatoes in all shapes and sizes. It doesn't matter if I bake them, roast them, smash or mash them, they are always a hit!
I am not the biggest football fan, but I have two crazy fans in my house and when I say fans, I mean lunatic level! So, with Superbowl Sunday just days away, I have to come up with a menu that is going to satisfy a bunch of hungry man children (haha).
I have been loving playing with sides. Simple usually works best in my house, white rice, roasted veggies with olive oil and salt and easy chopped potatoes. This Mama wanted to jazz things up, so I went all out on this one.
Every delicious dinner needs an equally amazing side to round out the meal. I had been pairing some of my favorite dishes with simple white rice, seasoned with butter and salt. This was just fine, but the peanut gallery was bored, so I tried to jazz it up with this gem!
The end of summer, moving into the fall harvest, is my favorite time of year for food. Gardens are overflowing with their bounties and it's time to figure out what to do with all of this abundance.
