Thanksgiving Week! Cranberry & Roasted Jalapeño Sauce (via Vivek's Epicurean Adventures)

Thanksgiving Week! Cranberry & Roasted Jalapeño Sauce Why do we only have cranberry sauce during Thanksgiving?! It is, in my opinion, one of the most delicious condiments you can have. As a sweet and tart sauce to roasted meats or spread on some homemade, fluffy buttermilk biscuits, cranberry sauce goes with everything. Perhaps that is why it's on the Thanksgiving menu. I personally love cranberries. When cooked, they have so much natural pectin that the sauce comes out with great texture. My recipe … Read More

Cheesy, Salty, Snappy Risotto (via )

Cheesy, Salty, Snappy Risotto Every year for the holidays, one of my husband's clients gives us a Honeybaked Ham. A nice gesture (who doesn’t like being gifted with pork?), but considering it’s only the two of us, it’s quite a bit of food. And besides, I have food ADD, so eating plain ol’ ham day in and day out isn’t gonna work for me. How the heck am I gonna get creative with all this extra ham? My brainstorm went something like this: “Ham…hmmm. Ham and cheese? Yes. Ham and … Read More
