Cranberry Sauce

2 days ago - Simply Recipes
Do you like cranberry sauce? My father can’t get enough of it during the holiday season. He’ll even stock up on fresh cranberries when they become available in late October, and freeze them to eat all year long. I think he looks forward to Thanksgiving just because he knows he can have as much cranberry sauce as he wants with his slices of tu... by Elise

Turkey Tortilla Soup

Yesterday - Simply Recipes
Do you like tortilla soup? It’s one of the easiest soups to make from scratch. You start by frying strips of corn tortillas in a little oil until crispy, then use that same tortilla-infused oil to sauté onions as you start to build the soup. The flavor is fabulous!

Pumpkin Cheesecake

Move over pumpkin pie, and say hello to pumpkin cheesecake! If you really truly want to impress your guests this holiday season, I recommend this cheesecake. Tall and proud like a classic New York style version, this one has a pumpkin cream cheese filling with a splash of bourbon, all sitting atop a pecan graham cracker crust. And if that wasn’t... by Elise

Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Shallots

11/14/2015 - Simply Recipes
Every year I consider it my civic duty to create a brussels sprouts recipe that my father will actually eat. Every family has one, right? A sprouts-a-phobe? No? Well consider yourself blessed. I guess we’re lucky that my dad is the only one who will roll his eyes when he sees the green orbs set before him. Oddly he claims to like the brussels... by Elise
