I’ve collected 10 Brussels sprouts recipes from 10 of my blogging friends who really do love Brussels sprouts.
You may notice that there are no Brussels sprouts recipes here on Everyday Southwest. Brussels sprouts are my arch nemesis, my Kryptonite, my pail filled with water that melts me at the thought of them. I have only eaten Brussels sprouts that I have liked one time in my entire life. They were prepared personally for me by the famous James Beard Award winning chef, Robert McGrath (the father of “American Western Cuisine” himself) as he stood only five feet away from me. Perhaps I loved the Brussels sprouts. Or, perhaps, I was dazzled by Mr. Cowboy Chef. I may never know for sure.
This time of year, I can’t get away from them. Their little green faces are everywhere! In the grocery store, the farmers markets, at the fancy restaurants (and the not-so-fancy). Even my friends and faithful readers are filled with questions about how to cook them.
I’ve decided this year I’m going to end the madness and do a post on Brussels sprouts… with a little help from my friends, of course. [click for recipe…]
We’ve put our own Southwest spin on 10 great sweet potato recipes just in time for your own family’s Holiday Dinner table.
Thanksgiving is coming fast so, I thought I would round up some of our favorite holiday recipes and put them all in one place where they will be easy to find for your holiday dinner. The only question is… where should I start? The holidays is not the time for me to go out on a limb with wild and crazy new recipes. Everyone in the family has their own favorite dish that they look forward to all year long. For my side of the family, that holiday favorite has to be Mom’s rolls. Just give us our own batch of rolls and we are in holiday heaven.
But, since most people seem to like a little “somethin’ somethin’” with their rolls, I decided to start collecting recipes for our second favorite dish, sweet potatoes. As it turns out, I didn’t have to go looking any further than my own backyard. We have quite a collection of sweet potato recipes right here on Everyday Southwest! Donna and I must be some sort of ”sweet potato whisperers” or something… ’cause we have recipes for everything from sweet potato soup to sweet potato tamales right here.
So, here goes, 10 links to some of our very own families’ favorite sweet potato recipes. [click for recipe…]
Warm, spicy weeknight meal magic! Turkey Leg Posole Recipe – from grocery bag to table in about 30 minutes flat!
Can you think of a better way to use up leftover turkey? Neither can we.
Is it too early to talk turkey leftovers? This spicy flavor packed soup is the perfect way to use up leftover turkey meat. And it’s a cinch to throw together on a weeknight!
Posole is a spicy corn stew and an ancient food that originated in southern Mexico – it has withstood the test of time because it is so easy and flavorful. The native peoples considered corn to be a sacred plant and so posole was a popular and revered dish. I used poblano chiles in this, which are very mild. If you want heat, roast a few jalepenos, too!
This is an incredibly easy version – from grocery bag to table in about 30 minutes!
I have made many varieties in my day, and I like using dark turkey meat best in this recipe instead of the traditional pork. The dark meat is full of flavor and stands up to the simmering required for this recipe. When you use leftover turkey meat, the whole pot full of posole – which feeds at least four people – is less than $10.
C’mon. You gotta make this!
