If you would have told me as a child that I would grow to love brussels sprouts, I would have called you crazy, but  I LOVE these Maple Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Pistachios.  The sweet maple syrup combines with the smoky bacon and nutty crunch of the pistachios and compliments the slight bitterness of the brussels sprouts perfectly.  These are perfect for almost any occasion.  They would work on a random Wednesday just as well as they’d work on Thanksgiving or Christmas.   Continue reading “Maple Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Pistachios”

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and it’s about time to start planning your menu.  When people think of Thanksgiving they think of turkey, but in my opinion, the most important Thanksgiving dish is the stuffing.  Seriously, is there another dish that tastes more like Thanksgiving than stuffing?  My family has shown that they are willing to go without turkey, (we do a standing rib roast) but no one has ever even thought about giving up stuffing.  This recipe for Jalapeno Cornbread Stuffing with Sausage and Dried Cranberries is a variation of the stuffing I’ve eaten every Thanksgiving for my entire life.
