Sweet Potato Souffle: Thanksgiving Countdown #5

November 14, 2011

I adore sweet potatoes.  I love them roasted, candied, whipped, and just plain old baked.  And they are so amazingly good for you!  Chuck full of vitamin A and fiber.  I personally think no Thanksgiving table is complete without them. So I love to find new ways to prepare this delicious veggie. This recipe is […]

              Wow.  That’s all I will say. Deciding to do a Thanksgiving countdown gives me permission to try new Thanksgiving and Autumn inspired recipes.  And, as always happens when you try new recipes, not all of them work.  Sometimes they are just so-so.  Not so blog worthy.  Yesterday for […]

I don’t think this is something that would actually be served as part of Thanksgiving dinner, but it would be simply lovely as part of a light Thanksgiving day breakfast or even the night before as loved ones begin to gather.  This warm, spicy concoction is so creamy and full-bodied because of the pumpkin.

My friend Jeff, who is a gardening superhero, brought me some lovely Japanese eggplant.  I love Japanese eggplant.  You can use it as-is,instead of “sweating” like regular eggplant.  I had been hoping for some eggplant to drop in my lap so I could try out this delicious Sicilian appetizer we had while in Italy. You […]

My husband used to make these for us a while back but we forgot about them for a while.  Do you ever do that?  Forget completely about recipes or food you used to eat?  Well, thankfully, my husband remembered these and he made these for dinner tonight.  He lived in Japan for two years while […]
