Yes, tis the season of cooking and cleaning and shopping, and cooking and cleaning some more. It seems like this time of year sneaks up on us out of nowhere and I am almost never as prepared as I’d like to be. I also don’t like cooking and serving the same old recipes every year. If you don’t try new things, how can you create new traditions for you and your family?!
Here is a list of Thanksgiving/Holiday recipes that are unique and most likely, not your mother’s recipes:
I understand how important family recipes are. My family never veers from my grandmothers’ recipes ever, and they are delicious. But pumpkin cheesecake?! C’mon! This has to be a nice twist on the regular pumpkin pie. Give it a shot.
This is a sweeter and richer recipe than I am used to, but delicious. I usually cook my brussels in an entire package of bacon fat but this I will be giving a try. Using ingredients from other dishes being served helps keep the meals’ flavors cohesive. When in doubt, add bacon.
Why do handheld pies taste so good?! Is it because they are so small and cute? I think so. And you can’t go wrong with crescent rolls.
If it’s got bacon and apple cider vinegar in it, I’m eating it! Put a southern spin on that boring green bean casserole you serve every year. Does anyone actually like green bean casserole??
Of course we’re going to suggest this recipe, it’s got Bubbies Sauerkraut in it! Perogies are made often in my house. My father’s family is from Slovakia and every woman in our family has their own recipe preferences when making them. These look and sound delicious and I especially am looking forward to cooking with chickpea flour.
