THE KITCHEN GADGET LOVERS GIFT GUIDE
The holidays are upon us and one of my absolute favorite things in the world during this time of year (other than snickerdoodles), is hot apple cider! Hot cocoa is cool and everything, but nothing warms my heart more than sitting by the fire, nice and cozy, and drinking some homemade cider.
I may be the only one that does this, but I’m always trying to one up my Thanksgiving game. In my mind, anything that is “fallish” is fair game come Thursday afternoon! I’ve come up with a fun little Thanksgiving-ie appetizer (or eat it as a side) with these Harvest Meatballs with Cranberry Sauce. And you are going to want to DIG.IN.
Cranberry sauce is one of my favorite things to plop onto my plate during Thanksgiving. Every year I try to up my cranberry sauce game and this Walnut Cranberry Sauce has won the trophy!
Bacon Wrapped Sweet Potatoes. Need I say more?!!
I’ve been broadening my horizons with persimmons lately, and this Mexican Persimmon and Broccoli slaw is off the chain. (does anyone even say that anymore) Persimmons are delicious, but also odd. I think it’s safe to say that the majority of people do not know what the heck to do with a persimmon! I was totally that person a couple of years ago and was always intrigued at the store to get one, but just didn’t know what to do with them!
Fear not friends, I got your back and will show you how can incorporate persimmons into your meals! Persimmons add a nice crunch and a bit of sweetness to dishes and are wonderful on there own as well. We like to eat them just like an apple!
This warm brussels and persimmon salad is about to blow yo’ mind!! I have a confession, I never had a persimmon before last year. I don’t know why, because they are sooo great! Slightly crunchy like an apple, a little sweet, perfect for snacking or putting into recipes.
Instant Pot mashed potatoes have been my jam lately. Actually, anything in the Instant Pot has been my jam for the last few months, but mashed potatoes…..complete swoonage!
I gotta tell ya; originally I was going to save this Paleo Gingerbread Latte for when it got closer to Thanksgiving, perhaps even the 1st week of Christmas, but I couldn’t contain myself!
This Chicken Pot Pie Spaghetti Squash Casserole might be the best thing I have ever made to date. Think Thanksgiving stuffing and chicken pie got together and made a little casserole child.
