Now that we have promoted our small business (thank you for reading).... it's time for the RECIPES! 


As a kid I hated brussel sprouts, but as an adult I love them! I've never tried them mixed with anything beyond butter and salt, so this recipe will be amazing to try this Thanksgiving. Maybe my kids will even eat them!!

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Grazing Board

Ok... ok... maybe this is not considered a side dish, so we will count this as the bonus #6 recipe! I just think its so beautiful and easy to execute. Lots of options from Trader Joes, but if you do not have one nearby then there are alternatives you can easily find at any grocery store. Check out this snack board from Domestikated Life here.

Duchess Potatoes

Delicious whipped potatoes in serving size portions for your guests! Such a great side dish and an amazing alternative to mashed potatoes. The great thing about this dish is that you can make these ahead of time and freeze them. Then bring them out, bake and add garnish. Looks simple to make and gorgeous to serve.
