I found this great recipe on the package of my fresh cut butternut squash. It looked yummy so I had to try it. The flavor of the roasted squash and apples with the crunch of the pecans is fantastic. This is a great way to get your family members to eat their veges. Enjoy.
This is based on Mark Bittman's "Chicken with cranberries and mushrooms" from his "Best Recipes in the World" cookbook. My husband made this, and it was adapted due to ingredients that we had on hand. You can use chicken breast instead of thighs. Sorry about the lack of a photo, we thought it smelled so good that we devoured it before thinking about the camera!
This recipe is a form of apple crisp that I have made since I was a teenager. It is the only one I use and it consistently tastes good...no matter what type of apples are used.
I have substituted Splenda sugar for both the brown and white sugars called for in this recipe and it comes out tasting just as good, although the 'crisp' part has a little different texture to it, but not bad. I only recommend using real butter in this recipe. This is the type of comfort food that you can have a big bowl of, climb back into bed, and eat under the warmth of the comforters when it is freezing cold outside....I love it!
I usually double the recipe and freeze one dish for use later. Just thaw in refrigerator and reheat if you want it warm.
I have been mad about these cookies made at my local Earthfare store for three years, and this week I was finally able to weasel the recipe out of their baker!! These little gems are excellent for folks who have wheat allergies, and they are vegan (if you don't consider honey an animal product). I hope you enjoy these little goodies as much as I do! Be forewarned: the number of servings is an estimate from their baker, as at the store they make about 30 cookies the size of your head from this recipe. I HIGHLY recommend cutting it down some for your first try.
O.K...everyone knows about my obsessions for muffins. This may be going a bit overboard, but hey it's muffin shaped. (I have changed the wording on the egg amount and adjusted accordingly.) Also, please note the previous reviewers difficulties in removing the muffins from the baking cups.
A nice easy dish for those busy days around the holidays. Put this on before going shopping and dinner is waiting when you get home! Serve with rice or couscous and a veggie.
Boneless chicken thighs could be used also. EDITED TO ADD: The 6 hour cooking time is based on my very old crockpot, but I have noticed my newer crockpot cooks hotter, so 4 hours on low may be plenty.
I love the idea of combining these two holiday favorites.
Portions size: is based on 1/2 medium potato per person. Choose smaller or larger. Part way through the cooking I stuck a toothpic under the lid to prop it open to vent some of the steam and reduce the liquid. The original recipe did not specify high or low heat setting. *I started my crock on the low setting then kicked it up to high after a couple hours cuz I got nervous about the timing.

My grandmother used to make this at Thanksgiving and Christmas to fill out the usual sweet potato casserole and dressing menu. This was always one of my favorites. It is very easy and very tasty! It is a good way to get your kids (and reluctant DH's) to eat their vegetables!
My family will give up a pumpkin pie for this! ---- two teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice may be used in place of the cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice --- I have made this using both the white and yellow cake mix I have to say that the yellow is better to use.
This is without a doubt *the* most fabulous applesauce I have ever had! It's the only apple sauce my kids will eat, The flavor is incredible! So much richer in flavor than apples that have been steamed or simmered in water. I have actually used whatever apples I happen to have in hand. Even those that are looking tired and not so crisp any more. Great with any pork or chicken entree.
A simple, delicious vegetable recipe that tastes good with any grilled meat that was marinated in lemon juice. It can be done on your gas grill's side burner so you don't have to run back and forth. My family is perfectly happy with ordinary, yellow, cooking onions, but if you have Vidalias in season it will suit them very well.
