Side Dish

Farmers’ Market Egg Drop Soup

Farmers’ Market Egg Drop Soup

Springtime. It’s hard not to love the hatching chicks and the promise of warmer temps and sunshine to come. But it’s pretty easy to hate the number of times you think you can leave the house with a light jacket, but with one foot out […]

Asparagus with Lemon and Dill Sauce

Asparagus with Lemon and Dill Sauce

Asparagus, while delicious, isn’t the most exciting side dish out there. However there are so many ways to spice it up. Wrap it in bacon, grill it, marinate it, roast it…I pretty much will eat this veggie in any form. But I have to say, […]

Deviled Egg Potato Salad

Deviled Egg Potato Salad

Think Spring! Oh, sorry. Too soon? Winter is soup and stew season, and I am the last person to try to rush us out of the beautiful snowy winter. But sometimes, even in winter, I sneak this Deviled Egg Potato Salad onto the menu. And […]

Rice Dainty

Rice Dainty

What is Rice Dainty? I made this dessert (if that is, in fact, what it is), ate a bunch of it, and still can’t quite give you a good answer. It is whatever you want it to be. It is rice Pudding-esque, and therefore it […]

Bloody Mary Shrimp Salad

Bloody Mary Shrimp Salad

I never really understood people who like tomatoes, but not ketchup. Or how about people who like ketchup, but not tomato sauce on their pasta? But I have to say that I do understand not loving tomato juice, yet loving everything about a bloody Mary. […]

Cheesy Spinach and Bacon Breakfast Squares

Cheesy Spinach and Bacon Breakfast Squares

Does breakfast planning fall through the cracks when you’re getting ready for company? I usually thaw a package of English muffins (anyone else hoard them when they are BOGO?) and make sure we have some eggs ready for guests to prepare to their liking. Oh, […]

Mashed Rutabaga

Mashed Rutabaga

I first heard the term “friendsgiving” maybe ten years ago. I was still young and had energy to leave my house after 7:00 pm and didn’t really understand the concept. Why wouldn’t you just meet friends at a bar rather then fixing another big meal? […]

Cranberry Sorbet

Cranberry Sorbet

For many people, myself included, the cranberry sauce element of Thanksgiving dinner is quite the afterthought. Judge away, but I happen to love the cranberry jelly right out of the can, still in the shape of the can. Although it doesn’t look like much, I’ve […]

Sausage Cornbread

Sausage Cornbread

Before you dot the i’s and cross the t’s of your final holiday menu, consider adding Sausage Cornbread somewhere -anywhere- to your lineup! It is a dish that can be whatever you need it to be. If you need a make-and-bake-ahead breakfast so you don’t […]

Apple and Herb Stuffing

Apple and Herb Stuffing

Stuffing and dressing and filling, oh my! These days it seems like no one can agree on anything, and this Thanksgiving staple is no different. I’d much rather discuss the discord in naming our Thanksgiving sides than discuss the disagreements of our current political climate. While […]
