Crispy Lemon Roasted Brussels Sprouts I am a HUGE Brussels Sprouts fan. You could almost call me a fanatic. I literally jump at the chance to order or makes these delicious little morsels all the time. Last year for Thanksgiving I was in Chicago with a bunch of my extended family.
Skirlie – fast savoury oats — Mostly Eating Skirlie is an old-fashioned savoury oat dish from Scotland made with oats and onions cooked in butter or dripping. I’ve been experimenting with this again recently made with olive oil, fresh herbs and a few extra veggies. It’s ridiculously easy to make, healthy and far easier to wash up than porridge. Skirlie has a different texture to porridge; it’s a little moist but also chewy, more like the consistency of cooked brown rice.
Asian Slaw with Ginger-Peanut Dressing l Once Upon A Chef Hi All, Here’s the Asian Slaw that I mentioned in last week’s Coconut Shrimp post.

Fresh Corn Casserole This isn’t technically corn pudding , as it doesn’t use any eggs, but that’s what folks ’round these parts sometimes call it. It’s getting to be that time of year when corn is in abundance, and neighbors bring by ears of corn like it’s going out of style. And I absolutely love this method of preparing the stuff; you basically slice off the kernels with a sharp knife, then—and this is key—scrape out all the creamy, milky goodness that resides inside the cob.

Dad’s going to remember exactly why he loves steak and potatoes when you serve him these. And you (along with the kids, fingers crossed!) will love them, too. Because of the way they are baked, a nice crunchy crust forms on the bottom. That, along with the soft interior and dollop of sour cream and fresh herbs, and you’ll know the best reason potatoes are the most commonly eaten vegetable in our country. So see you later, french fries!
Mashed potatoes are one of my favorite things to eat on Thanksgiving, but this year since I am pregnant and on a really strict low carb diet (for my diabetes) real mashed potatoes are out (bummer). I recently started researching alternatives to some of my favorite dishes because there is NO way my plate will be without a big ole pile of mash potatoes. I came across this recipe that uses cauliflower instead of potatoes. Hmmm not a big cauliflower fan so I wasn't sure. If there is a choice of either celery or cauliflower in a veggie dish 9 times out of 10 I will choose the celery.
I came across this cauliflower crust pizza on Pinterest, and was instantly intrigued. A low-carb pizza? Sign me up! I was skeptical, of course, but curious enough to try it and see how it tasted. I was pleasantly surprised by the results.
