Orange Ginger Cranberry Sauce

Orange Ginger Cranberry Sauce-6777

I have a confession to make.  You know that gelatinous cranberry sauce that comes in the can?  Well, that used to be a staple at our Thanksgiving dinners.  It gets worse.  I didn’t buy it because it was easier to just open a can then to throw a cranberry sauce together from scratch, I bought it because I actually really liked it.Continue Reading

Maple & Dijon Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Toasted Walnuts & Parmesan-6685

My sister called me up a few days ago to ask why I hadn’t posted any Thanksgiving side recipes.  Honestly, I didn’t have a good excuse for her.  Laziness maybe?  Or perhaps the fact that cooking one whole Thanksgiving dinner can be overwhelming enough, let alone cooking a bunch of Thanksgiving sides weeks beforehand and then cooking them all over again on the big day.

Roasted Beet, Goat Cheese & Thyme Dip

Roasted Beet, Goat Cheese & Thyme Dip-6152

Don’t let the super bright color of this dip scare you away!  If you love beets you will love this dip, and if you don’t love beets you should give them another try because they are delicious!  I didn’t start eating them myself until a few years ago when I figured I should start eating more healthy vegetables.  And, honestly, I kind of chocked them down at the time.

Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil Hummus Flatbread

Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil Hummus Flatbread-4604

My name is Isadora and I’m a hummus addict.  Seriously, I could eat it by the tub and sometimes I do.  In my defense, some of those hummus tubs are pretty small!  While I do appreciate the traditional plain hummus flavor, I love experimenting with making my own hummus and adding all kinds of delicious flavors to it.

Vegan Chili Cheese Fries

Vegan Chili Cheese Fries-6051

I’ve got to brag for just a second, my husband took one bite of these fries and told me that they were one of the best things I’ve ever made!  It made me really happy, although I secretly wanted to eat the whole pan for myself, but it makes me certain that you will love them too!

Sorghum, Sweet Potato & White Bean Salad with Kale Pesto

Sorghum, Sweet Potato & White Bean Salad with Kale Pesto-5992

Some of you may remember that time I ranted on and on about how I couldn’t find sorghum anywhere.  Well, since that post, I’ve been searching and searching and I still haven’t been able to find it at any store.  So, I finally had to take matters into my own hands.  If you know me, you might have an idea where I am going with this, I finally went to Amazon (my favorite place ever) and I ordered myself some!

Tex Mex Loaded Sweet Potatoes

Tex Mex Loaded Sweet Potatoes-5901

You guys, I had such a fun and fall filled weekend last weekend!  I made us start this pumpkin picking tradition last year.  Although the pumpkin patch is about an hour and a half away from our house and we don’t stay for too long, I think it is so much fun to go pick out and cut our own pumpkins!  They also have delicious caramel corn and they greet you with handfuls of it as soon as you pull into the parking lot and they have roasted corn on the cob that is hard to pass up.  It really doesn’t get much better!
