Recipes from Friends

November 20, 2011

It was a recipe kind of week around the blogosphere – must be the time of year with everyone prepping for Thursday. Are you cooking? I am not. We’re taking our girl to see Happy Feet 2 and spending the afternoon watching Football and noshing.  I wish I was going to Hawaii like my neighbor (yes, that means you Dana).  But I digress.

Anyway, I read some amazing recipes and was inspired to do a recipe wrap up. The “best of” what I saw and shared with you. So, take a look and tell me what sounds good. I’m leaning towards the applesauce.

Kathleen at Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice wrote about her delectable mashed potatoes. Sage? Head turned, curious squint on my brow. I looked further for details. Oh my yum. Yes, I’ll definitely be making these some day soon. Warning…lots of butter ahead.

My sweet friend, Ashely, from northern California wrote about her Gravenstein Awesomesauce at It’s Fitting. Roasted apples? Who would have thought. I’m making this too because my husband and kid are super huge fans of applesauce. In fact, it’s my daughter’s go-to dipping sauce for quesadillas. Strange, right? I guess not…cheese and apples are good companions.

This is why the internet is so great. Mamabub had made an apple crisp a few weeks ago and it wasn’t as perfect as she had hoped it to be. But one of her readers gave her a few suggestions on how to make it like your Grandma would. And thankfully, she shared the recipe with us!

Now, I’m partial to the canned cranberry sauce in all its can shaped glory but Amy has whipped up a spiced cranberry sauce with agave nectar.  Looks so yummy.

Three words for you.  Mashed. Potato. Soup.  How incredible does that sound?  Maybe for next Friday night?  Amanda at Sunny Vegan – don’t fret…this is a vegan recipe but I’m sure it can be tweaked using conventional ingredients – shared her recipe for mashed potato soup.  She’s also got a tomato basil florentine soup and a chocolate espresso milkshake I can’t wait to try!

Don’t these recipes sound fab?  I think they do.  You know of any others I should know about?  Tell me!

I’m going to have to check out all these recipes. I don’t get to cook for Thanksgiving, but I can certainly cook all the fixings on another day! (minus the turkey – yuck)
