Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Rating: 4.59 stars
This recipe is from my mother. It may sound strange, but these are really good and very easy to make. The Brussels sprouts should be brown with a bit of black on the outside when done. Any leftovers can be reheated or even just eaten cold from the fridge. I don't know how, but they taste sweet and salty at the same time!

Sauteed Apples

Rating: 4.8 stars
This is great for any meal, but is great for breakfast. The syrup from the apples is great on homemade waffles. You may add raisins to the sauce if you wish.

Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes

Rating: 4.61 stars
You can make these ahead several days and store in the fridge. If baking cold, let stand 30 minutes first.

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Rating: 4.63 stars
These beans are briefly boiled and tossed with cherry tomatoes in a buttery basil sauce to make the most yummy green beans ever! We serve these at Easter Dinner every year but are a delicious accent to any meal.

Delicious mushroom risotto made with vegetable broth, cream, and a variety of fresh vegetables. Serve as a side dish or filling main course.

Grilled Asparagus

Rating: 4.7 stars
The special thing about this recipe is that it's so simple. Fresh asparagus with a little oil, salt, and pepper is cooked quickly over high heat on the grill. Enjoy the natural flavor of your veggies.

Sarah's Applesauce

Rating: 4.78 stars
This applesauce is delicious! I make it for my younger brother all the time and he loves it - and he hates canned applesauce!

Boston Baked Beans

Rating: 4.57 stars
A wonderful old-fashioned baked bean flavor. This recipe has served by family for 29 years and originally came from my mother-in-law. It tastes great served with fresh cornbread or biscuits and honey. Although you need to allow time for soaking and simmering the beans, this recipe is still quite easy.

Potato Pancakes II

Rating: 4.09 stars

Crispy, golden and cheesy! Good use of leftover mashed potatoes. This recipe is very versatile: you can add minced garlic, chives, or 1/4 cup of any shredded raw vegetable, or substitute the cheese with a tablespoon of sugar and serve with maple syrup.
