My grandmother and mother passed this recipe on to me. It changes just a little every year, because we've never written it down before. But it is always incredibly juicy and succulent!

Honey and Rosemary Sweet Potatoes

Rating: 4.5 stars

Baked until chewy on the outside and soft on the inside, these are a perfect balance of salty and sweet. The rosemary makes them addictive.

Asparagus with Cranberries and Pine Nuts

This is a quick, easy way to saute asparagus. The dish has a light flavor and makes a great accompaniment to Italian meals. I make this year-round, but we especially enjoy it on Thanksgiving.

Duck Fat-Roasted Brussels Sprouts

A few tablespoons of duck and a very hot oven is all you need to turn some sleepy Brussels sprouts into something much more special.

Butternut squash is so good on its own, that barely any seasoning is needed. This recipe is so simple and easy.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

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!

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Very healthy and tasty sweet potatoes that will be a great addition to any meal. Very easy!

Pumpkin Spice

This will make enough for one recipe of pumpkin pie. But you could increase amounts to keep a mix on hand. These spices added to a pumpkin pie make the dish as far as I am concerned.

This makes a yummy mini-Thanksgiving, which my girls and husband love! I serve this with jellied cranberry sauce, quick stuffing, and gravy.

Butternut squash is a staple in my house during the fall months. In this dish, the squash is roasted with fresh rosemary, garlic, and olive oil. Makes an outstanding side dish with pork, fish, and chicken.
