Streuseled Sweet Potato Casserole

Streuseled Sweet Potato Casserole
Comments : 2 Posted in : Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Recipes, Side Dishes on by : aelder2259

This recipe is a favorite of my youngest son. It’s also my favorite thing to make with sweet potatoes (yams). The original recipe came from Cooking Light and I’ve noted the dairy- and gluten-free substitutes. Ingredients: • 14 cups (1-inch) cubed peeled sweet potato (about 5 pounds) • 1/2 cup half-and-half or substitute with coconut

Ratatouille

Ratatouille
Posted in : Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Recipes, Side Dishes on by : aelder2259

I love ratatouille and have tweaked it over the years to make it my own. My downstairs neighbor always says she hates eggplant and zucchini, but she loves it when I have it in ratatouille…probably because I cook all the vegetables separately and keep them from getting mushy. This recipe is especially good the next

I like to make new dishes for Christmas Eve dinner that is different from the standard ham or turkey. This year, I chose to do a Moroccan theme since I fell in love with the food during my visit last June. Below is my menu along with the recipes (or links to them). PS –

Another winner from the Smitten Kitchen, but this time from the cookbook, not online. Like Deb’s spouse, my husband also doesn’t care for fruit with his meats, but since her hubby loved it, I thought I’d give it a try. William’s verdict – home run! I made lemony roasted parsnips to go with the chicken.

Rutabagas are one of those vegetables that I have wanted to make more often, but was clueless about how to prepare them, other than roasting. One of my favorite radio personalities, Lynne Rosetto Kasper, posted a Rutabaga Hash with Onions and Crisp Bacon on her website, The Splendid Table. As soon as I saw it,

Buttercup (not Butternut) squash tastes similar to pumpkin and has a dark orange colored meat. It’s a bit on the dryer side than the blue Hubbard squash I made the other night. The following recipe makes a great side dish that’s almost like desert. Ingredients: 1 (2 1/2 lb) buttercup squash 2 tablespoons brown sugar,

I don’t always use a recipe when I’m cooking. Over the past year, I have been cooking more with items on hand and making up my own recipes. Most of the time, they work out fine and there’s only been a few instances where I had to toss out the dish. Tonight, I made a

My first real food allergy avoidance test was on Thanksgiving. It has become a tradition for about two dozen of us to get together at a friend’s house for dinner, each bringing a side dish (or two) with the hosts supplying the turkey and ham. In our circle of friends, there are so many food
