What are your thoughts on bread with Thanksgiving dinner – yay or nay? It’s a simple decision, but it leaves me torn year after year. Sort of. I always sit down to dinner thinking I’ll pass on the dinner rolls to save room for extra stuffing and mashed potatoes. But really, who am I trying […]

Harissa Roasted Green Beans

Strawberry-Rhubarb Endive Salad with Mint and Pine Nuts

Coriander Roasted Rainbow Carrots

Let’s talk Thanksgiving sides. I think we can all agree that the side dishes are the best part of Thanksgiving, right?!  I know the turkey is meant to be the star of the show, but for me it plays more of a supporting role than anything else. Most years I fill my holiday menu with […]
