Maple dijon green beans – a very simple recipe and a favourite in our house. Three happy diners sitting around the table, just four ingredients, and about five minutes.
I have been so excited about posting this recipe – it really is absolutely delicious, and just so simple. We default to using this recipe for our supper side dish all the time. We had them just a couple of nights ago and my husband asked me if I thought we could put the sauce on other vegetables too – that’s how much we like this recipe.
Although we are enjoying a warmer than usual December here in the Canadian Maritimes, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t enjoy a nice warming soup on a cool day. We are fresh out of an overnight power outage and a nasty storm, and this squash soup is a great way for us to warm up today.
This roasted squash soup came about because I had a beautiful butternut squash to use and a craving for a thick, creamy soup. It is packed full of vegetables and is thickened with yogurt, which adds a bit of tang and a lot less fat than using heavy cream to thicken the soup.
If you’d prefer to use curry powder in place of the thyme, I think that would be wonderful. If you try it, please let me know how your soup turns out.
Mmm, a warm coffee cake. Comforting. Perfect with a hot cup of coffee on a winter’s morning.
My husband loves coffee cake, and this one is no slouch. This makes a great breakfast or brunch item, or just a fantastic snack. I plan on enjoying some while sitting in front of my Christmas tree this holiday season.
