Gingered Sweet Potatoes

26 Mar

Sweet potatoes are amazing, and I love to make them all the time.  They are a perfect side dish, full of vitamins and flavor.  One problem I have with sweet potatoes is that I always seem to prepare them the same way; baked, mashed with some butter and cinnamon, and maybe some brown sugar added in if I’m feeling like I want more sweetness.  Gingered Sweet Potatoes is a great alternative way to present sweet potatoes.

Easy Potato Casserole

23 Sep

For me, there is no side dish quite as comforting as a cheese Potato Casserole.  This is probably why I have two different recipes for Potato Casserole on The Hungry Wife.  Easy Potato Casserole is similar to my Potato Casserole Recipe, but a bit easier and faster to make.

Baked Beans Recipe

1 Jul

This Baked Beans Recipe is a deliciously different way to prepare homemade baked beans.  Perfect with any summertime dish, Baked Beans are a classic American side dish.  You may think it is easier to just buy the canned baked beans and heat and serve, but one you make this recipe you’ll know there is no comparison.  Homemade Baked Beans are far superior to anything you can ever get from a store.

Potato Casserole Recipe

I recently realized that I have a ton of slow cooker recipes, and that I use them a lot.  One of the things I love best about crockery cooking is that at the end of a busy day, your meal is done with minimal effort.  It might take some time in the morning, but I think slow cooking is totally worth it.  Potato Casserole Recipe is one of my favorite type of crockery recipes, an awesome creamy side dish that makes a lot of servings with little effort.

Brussels Sprouts and Caramelized Shallots

20 Oct

Brussels Sprouts are in the Brassicaceae family, same as cabbage and broccoli.  They are a type of wild cabbage, and cultivated for their small size and delicate flavor.  Plants in the Brassicaceae family contain a chemical called sulforaphane, believed to have potent anti-cancer properties.  Although boiling reduced the level of anti-cancer compounds, steaming, stir-frying, and microwaving does not result in a significant loss.  If you have some picky eaters in your family, that like to avoid cabbage like the plague, Brussels Sprouts and Caramelized Shallots is your secret weapon.

Wasabi and Green Onion Mashed Potatoes

7 Oct

Mashed Potatoes are my favorite side dish, they go along with nearly everything (I think so at least).  I like them hand mashed so they are still chunky, with butter and salt.  That was true unti I found Wasabi and Green Onion Mashed Potatoes.  I never thought that wasabi would be something I wanted mixed in foods other than sushi, but it really adds something extra special to the potatoes.  The amount called for in this recipe is the perfect amount, just enough to add some flavor, but not overpower the other delicate flavors.  The amount of “heat” can be adjusted to you taste, if you wish.
