Creamy Gravy for your Turkey(less) Feast

One of the things that I have yet to find a good replacement for since going meatless is gravy. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought it would be a great time to give this Onion one a try over the mashed potatoes that will be adorning my table for Thanksgiving. It is rich, creamy and pretty darn simple to make. Add in some baby portabellas and you have a feast fit for kings in my opinion. Please note, it contains butter so even though it’s meatless, chow down with caution. [Read more…]

Recipe: Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts

Today, I am sharing a recipe that I found which uses a food that is fairly new to me: Brussels Sprouts. I hadn’t ever tried them before and frankly, the idea of them scared the crap out of me. COuntless commercials used Brussles Sprouts to depict torturing children. I hear how they smelled up your house. Made people vomit and lets not discuss what they supposedly do to your pee and poop! In any case, I broke down not long ago and roasted some up to give them a try. THEY. WERE. DELICIOUS.

I didn’t vomit. I didn’t have funny smelling pee. Honest. They were just yummy little bits of goodness. [Read more…]
