This classic holiday side gets an update with the simple addition of slivered fennel. The mild hint of licorice in the fennel adds wonderful flavor and texture to the creamy potatoes, and breathes new life into an otherwise plain side dish.
Everything about this dish says fall -- the sweet earthy flavor, the rich fragrance and the bright orange hue. It's a quick dish to throw together and is even faster when you buy a package of squash that's already cleaned, peeled and cubed.
This is an easy yet elegant side dish that compliments anything from a turkey dinner to a standing rib roast. Set aside some beans, before they're tossed with the mushroom mixture, for the pickier eaters at your table.
Try this twist on the old pigs in blankets standby and fill your home with the aroma of fresh-baked dough. Gooey melted mozzarella counterbalances the tang of a tomato slice and the crunchy, salted asparagus.
Instead of the sticky-sweet candied yams traditionally served at holiday dinners, this butternut squash recipe offers a lighter flavor that works for any fall or winter meal. It's mixed with brown sugar and sage to create true seasonal comfort food.
