Every year I consider it my civic duty to create a brussels sprouts recipe that my father will actually eat. Every family has one, right? A sprouts-a-phobe?
No? Well consider yourself blessed. I guess we're lucky that my dad is the only one who will roll his eyes when he sees the green orbs set before him. Oddly he claims to like the brussels sprouts recipes I've made for him, which makes his stated aversion seem even weirder.
Just because it's Thanksgiving doesn't mean you have to roast a whole turkey. If you are only hosting a few people for dinner and you don't want weeks of leftovers, you can just roast a turkey breast! (You can also make it in less than half the time of a whole turkey.)
Ah, fall, a perfect time for a spicy pumpkin soup! This soup comes together quickly, and has warm notes of ginger, curry, cumin, coriander, and black pepper. Great flavor additions that enhance not detract from the pumpkin.
