Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe
This is a recipe that we have made in our family for many years--everyone loves it. It's a very basic and easy variation on mac 'n cheese.
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!
Val's Spicy Baked Shrimp
Leave the shells on if you want. Or, shell and serve over pasta for something a bit more elegant. Either way, this is spicy, buttery, truly yummy shrimp!
Low Carb Yellow Squash Casserole
This recipe was created to use up a large amount of squash we were given. We modified an existing recipe, swapping almonds for crackers and whole cream for milk. It satisfies my husband's diet and tastes great!
