0 Comments

For the record, you don’t need to share the following side dishes with someone you love.

We know we wrote that as this gallery’s headline.

But, heck, you can share them with people you hate for all we care.

We’re just trying to say that the following side dish recipes make enough for at least two people. You can totally decide who that other person is on your own…

  1. Roasted Butternut Squash Quinoa Salad Recipe
    • Roasted Butternut Squash Quinoa Salad Photo
    • Fluffy quinoa gets a fall makeover! This roasted butternut squash quinoa salad is full of every fall ingredient I could get my hands on. I love cooking with quinoa. Not only is it good for you – being a complex carb and all – but I find that it’s much easier to prepare than regular long-grain …
  2. Parmesan Smashed Potatoes Recipe
    • Parmesan Smashed Potatoes Photo
    • There is nothing like an amazing side dish on holidays. With Thanksgiving coming up my mind has been preoccupied with side dishes lately.  One of my favourite side dishes of all time are potatoes. Any way you serve them, I’m the first in line for potatoes. Whether boiled, mashed, roasted, smashed or any other form, I’m a fan.  My daughter …
  3. Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes Recipe
    • Olive Oil Mashed Potatoes Photo
    • Perfectly fluffy, creamy and buttery: that’s what defines the perfect mashed potato in my mind, and these potatoes fit that description to a T. But you’d be surprised to know that these perfect mashed potatoes are not made with butter at all, rather, they’re swirled and infused with OMAGGIO Limited Reserve Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Trust me, you’ll …
  4. Bourbon Ginger Cranberry Sauce Recipe
    • Bourbon Ginger Cranberry Sauce Photo
    • I love fresh cranberries and every single year I try to come up with new dishes to show off their beauty. Some of my favorites are cranberry rosemary focaccia and my cranberry orange Dutch baby. However, growing up cranberries had little to do with my culinary life. They were just something that was available in can form and were just …
  5. Gluten Free Green Bean Casserole Recipe
    • Gluten Free Green Bean Casserole Photo
    • I’m about to let you in on a little secret: This gluten free green bean casserole is probably the best green bean casserole you’ll ever have. I’m not trying to brag or anything, I’m just telling you the truth. The reason it’s so delicious? Everything about this casserole is delicious. All the components, individually, are amazing. The …

    • How is it November already? I feel like summer has barely ended and here, I find my thoughts quickly turning to thoughts of the holidays. The holidays! Well ready or not, here they come! They may be quickly sneaking up on me but I am so ready. I love Thanksgiving, Christmas and all the holidays during these next few months that …

    • Roasted Acorn Squash with Cranberry Sauce Photo
    • Thanksgiving is right around the corner. That means a big celebration with family and friends in a kitchen or dining room with delicious food. While most consider turkey the star of the meal, I look at dinner differently. I look forward to the stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and veggies. To me, the sides are the best …
  8. Parsnip Fries Recipe
    • Parsnip Fries Photo
    • This post and recipe are sponsored by Sasa Demarle Silpat. The contributor received items for review, and was compensated for recipe development. All opinions are her own. I busted out the parsnips, you guys. I’m not going to lie. My kids were scared. “What’s wrong with that carrot?” the oldest asked. “Why is that potato …
  9. Vegetable Strata Recipe
    • Vegetable Strata Photo
    • I’ve mentioned several times that in our house we love a good holiday breakfast or brunch. We are huge fans of breakfast casseroles and bakes to get the job done. Last year my recipe for Christmas Morning Casserole went a little bit internet bonkers. So did this Bacon Spinach Breakfast Casserole, which is really a bacon spinach strata. …
  10. Gluten Free Cornbread Stuffing Recipe
    • Gluten Free Cornbread Stuffing Photo
    • Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays of the year. I love food, so it makes sense. But I also tend to get stressed out on Thanksgiving because there is so much to do. It is kind of a high stakes dinner too. I mean if you burn the turkey…. or do what I’ve done and serve it …
  11. Spicy Pumpkin Lentils Recipe
    • Spicy Pumpkin Lentils Photo
    • Lentils are said to have been found in Ancient Egyptians tombs as early as 2400 BC and since then they have made their way alongside meat onto certain European tables and mingled with garlic and onions on certain Middle Eastern and the South Asian tables. They are sometimes green, sometimes yellow, sometimes red, sometimes black …
  12. Easy Sautéed Mushrooms Recipe
    • Easy Sautéed Mushrooms Photo
    • Side dishes are hard. I always struggle to come up with side dish ideas. That is probably why I make so many one pot skillet meals, everything is all there for you, no side dish required. One of my favorite side dishes though is mushrooms. Especially when serving a cut of meat. Grilled steak or ribeye with mushrooms… the …
  13. Mashed Carrots and Turnips Recipe
    • Mashed Carrots and Turnips Image
    • Thanksgiving dinner, or any turkey dinner for that matter, is one of those things that everyone has their traditional side dishes for. Now, I’m not one to have a problem with changing things up to try something different – in fact there was almost a revolt one year when I decided to try a different stuffing recipe rather then …
  14. Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes Recipe
    • Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes Photo
    • As long as I can remember, my mom always made mashed potatoes from scratch. Never ever from a box or package. Each Thanksgiving, we have family from all over the United States gather at our home for the feast of the year. A large group equals pounds and pounds of mashed potatoes! We make anywhere from five to …
