It occurred to us this past Thanksgiving that we have not saved many of our go-to recipes…and it would be a huge bummer if the original links ever went away! Plus we have tweaked many of these to our own tastes. This is an awesome stuffing we originally got from Epicurious, and turned it into both vegetarian and gluten free.Continue reading
This was quite good and open to many interpretations! My friend Stephanie suggested this after I asked for recipe ideas. I have recently been put on a low FODMAP diet, which is a rude awakening for sure (but hard to argue as it is making a difference). It’s easy to become discouraged, but simple ideas like this work well! I’m planning to share some recipes (or just ways to prepare food) that work for us and keep me from eating nothing but eggs and cucumbers! 🙂
I have a pretty reliable stuffed peppers recipe we like a lot, but I thought it was time to try something new…we really liked this one! It was based on a recipe from Damn Delicious. I used ground turkey instead of beef, and quinoa instead of rice, both substations I prefer regardless. We did this in the slow cooker and it came out really well!
We had a couple of cans of white beans, and a kielbasa that needed a job, and it’s cold here on the farm. While we have more time than we used to on a weekday (horses live at home rather than me driving…amazing the difference!), we still appreciate a quick dinner. This was fun, tasty, open to whatever sausage you have on hand, etc. It is from Epicurious, and came up when I googled, “quick cassoulet!” I added a package of spinach for filling (and because it needed to be used up).
This was a great older Food and Wine recipe when you’re looking for nice comfort food. It would do just as well with pork chops, but we loved the drumsticks. We had this with brown basmati rice and Brussels sprouts.
Well, we’ve gone and done it and bought the farm of our dreams! The horses are right out back now, so it’s a lot easier to cook. Back to recipes. It seems fitting that the first one I’m adding to the site is a cake we served at our housewarming party. This is a 10+ year old Cooking Light recipe that always goes over well. It is great for Thanksgiving, or any other fall occasion. It also makes a great coffee cake!
Gotta love classic takeout curry, except it doesn’t necessarily work well with any kind of healthy diet plan. This worked well, though…easy to lighten, and we had it over cauliflower rice – it was very good! We would definitely repeat. You could use full-fat ingredients for this, if you were not looking to lighten it up.
Cute, easy, and disappeared fast! These were a fun Halloween dessert, but could also be great for Thanksgiving if you don’t want to make a whole pie. I would say don’t skip the butterscotch topping – really made it! Also really portable – great for pot lucks! I really liked these.
This was a cute pumpkin-shaped cake we had at this year’s Halloween party. A lot of steps, but not particularly difficult…just required two cakes baked in bundt pans. This would also be fun for Thanksgiving. This came from Shugary Sweets.
Another pressure cooker adventure! Also another Skinnytaste recipe. We had this with cauliflower mash. Definitely one worth repeating.
