I love sprouts, here is one of my fave recipes:

Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe : Ina Garten : Food Network

I like to sprinkle Parmesan cheese over at the end and let it melt, sooooooo yummy!
A couple more recipes:
Bacon-Braised Brussels Sprouts Recipe : Tyler Florence : Food Network
Screaming Heads: Brussels Sprouts Gratin Recipe : : Food Network

There are so many sweet potato recipes out there that are uber sweet, and mask how wonderful the flavor truly is.
I like to peel them dice them, put them on a baking sheet drizzle olive oil over and bake at 350 til tender.....then a sprinkle of sea salt and pepper.
Its savory/sweet together, yummy!
Heres another interesting recipe:

Roasted Brusells sprouts, yes yes yes! Toss them in some oil and herbs, and they caramelize beautifully. The outer leaves get all crisp ... soooo good. The baby ones are more mild tasting if you like.

Sweet potatoes with marshmallows: barf. My mother-in-law does not like to cook, so her contribution to Thanksgiving is always a few cans of candied yams, dumped into a dish, topped with marshmallows and baked. They take about three minutes to prepare and taste dreadful. I've never liked those things. : shudder : I like most foods, but canned yams are still on my gag list.

I made whipped sweet potatoes once, with a pecan streusel topping. Those were all right. I bet the people who like them more have better ideas. I do not plan to make sweet potatoes this Thanksgiving.

I simmer brussels sprouts and sliced carrots in a sauce of orange juice thickened with corn starch. The sweetness of the carrots and orange detracts from the "cabbagey" taste of the sprouts, and makes a colorful presentation.

This has to be the best sweet potato casserole I've ever had....

Sweet Potato Casserole

  • 2-1/4 cups cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons milk
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together mashed sweet potatoes, melted butter, milk, sugar, vanilla extract, and eggs. Spread sweet potato mixture into the prepared baking dish. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar and flour. Cut in cold butter until mixture is crumbly, then stir in pecans. Sprinkle pecan mixture over the sweet potatoes.
  3. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

As far as the BS go...I wish they would go....far, far away!!!

I've got your perfect side dish right here This is one of my favorite recipes because it's just comfort food at it's best. I dare say it's love in a bowl

Cheesy Brussels Sprouts & Celery

1 lb. of brussels sprouts, I buy the frozen ones.
5 stalks of celery
Velveeta, I use a chunk about 4-5 inches long
1 can of cream of celery.

Slice your celery thin & boil it with the brussels sprouts until tender.

Reserve 2/3 cup of the water you boiled the veggies in, strain your brussels sprouts & celery.

Add diced velveeta & cream of celery into the water you reserved. Stir to combine. Once it's melted together add back in your veggies. Sprinkle with pepper.

Enjoy! It really is one of my favorites & couldn't be any easier or cheaper to make Here's a link to a picture from when I made it before...I'm no photographer so it's blurry br5-1.jpg (image)

They're both too good by themselves, to be put into a recipe.
