Holiday Baked Apples
Baked red apples have a strong, sweet flavor and a buttery cinnamon filling with a hint of coconut. Eat with a knife and fork. Goes well with vanilla ice cream or alone.
Cream-Braised Brussels Sprouts
Brussels sprouts tend to turn people off. This way of cooking creamed Brussels sprouts brings out their nutty flavor and has made the most passionate haters at my last Thanksgiving say, at the very least, that this is the best Brussels sprouts they have tasted. The first time I made this, it ended up being dinner — not a side dish!
Holiday Cranberry Sauce
I have made this family-favorite cranberry sauce with fresh cranberries for Christmas and Thanksgiving every year for more than a decade. The recipe was given to me by a friend.
Pumpkin Maple Pie Supreme
The first pumpkin pies were nothing like we make today. The most available sweetener was maple syrup, REAL maple syrup. I decided to try adding that to these pies and what a difference! This is my husband's favorite pie, using actual pumpkins that we grow. Using REAL maple syrup is key to the flavor. For extra special times, I serve with maple-sweetened whipped cream.
Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing
A tasty savory, sweet stuffing made with turkey sausage, herbs, and fruit.
Broccoli, carrots, green onions and ramen noodles brought together with a dressing of olive oil, vinegar, sugar and chicken flavored seasoning.
Uncle Dick's Mashed Potatoes
This is recipe is loved by everyone who has tried it. My husband's uncle kept this recipe a secret for many years and would not share it with anyone; we had to wait until he passed away, and then my husband's aunt gave us the recipe. I made these for a Thanksgiving dinner we had at church, and now every time we have any sort of meal at church I am always asked if I going to make uncle Dick's potatoes. Even in the summer, this is what they want me to make. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do.
Pumpkin Pie Bread Pudding
Combination of 2 classic recipes: bread pudding and pumpkin pie. I put this together on a whim and loved it. Taste is more comforting than sweet. Great served warm or cold and can be complemented with whipped cream or milk.
