Walnut Zucchini Muffins
Breakfast. It may be the most important meal of the day, but that doesn’t mean most of us make time for it. The solution? Quick and easy muffins. On top of being something you can prep ahead of Monday morning, they are also perfect for portion control. Shredded zucchini adds makes these walnutty muffins extra tender. If you have lots of zucchini in summer as most of us do, this is a good way to use some of it. Complete recipe here.
Cranberry Pineapple Salad
Impress dinner guests with this delightfully different take on traditional cranberry sauce. The nuts add a tasty crunch. Pineapple, cranberry sauce, and chopped walnuts make this JELL-O salad a sweet addition to your day. This Cranberry Pineapple Salad is delicious and festive looking! 4 ingredients & 10 minutes cook time = a great holiday side dish or potluck dish to share! Complete recipe here.
Creamy Parmesan Spinach Bake
This creamy, comforting side dish wonderfully rounds out any holiday dinner. Just a little of this rich casserole goes a long way. Everybody loves creamed spinach, even folks who hate spinach! Here’s a luxurious baked version. It’s easy and tastes much better than any store bought or frozen versions. If you’re looking for an excuse to eat your veggies (or just clean out your freezer), I’d say this recipe’s a very good place to start. Complete recipe here.
Garlic-Sesame Green Beans
In my opinion, a side dish is just as important as the main dish and it should be flavorful enough to stand on its own. Sesame oil is one of my favorite condiments to add to a vegetable dish. The flavor is bold so you don’t need much and it’s a delicious way to jazz up green beans. Once you add it to the pan, the aroma of the sesame oil lingers in your kitchen. Then you know it’s time to eat! This recipe is so simple and very easy to prepare. If you don’t have green beans, any kind of vegetable would work fine like broccoli, snow peas or carrots. Serve this with my Crispy Salmon Fillet for the perfect dinner. Complete recipe here.
Roasted Autumn Soup
Roasting sweet potatoes, carrots and parsnips bring out their best features. Blend them, and you have a warm, healthy soup for a cool fall night. Delicious, full of flavor, great for a chilly afternoon. Instead of fresh herbs, you can use 1/2 teaspoon each of dried herbs. Complete recipe here.
