Recipe: Thanksgiving Potluck

Let's have a Thanksgiving Recipe Potluck!
If you e-mailed me a recipe, you are featured on R&W below.
**A big thanks to everyone who participated.**

First and foremost, Happy, Healthy Thanksgiving to everyone and their families.
...and now for the good part, the food...


Garlic Brussell Sprouts
Submitted by Jax from Raviolis & Waterworks.

(1) Pkg Brussell Sprouts
(6) Cloves of Garlic – Minced
(1) Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
(1) Tbsp Red Pepper Flakes

Bring a large pot of water to a rigorous boil.
Meanwhile, thoroughly clean the Brussell Sprouts.  Once cleaned and dried, cut them in halves.
The largest turn off from these yummy veggies is the consistency, cutting them in half helps.
Put the cut Brussell Sprouts in the water and boil for about 12-15 minutes.
The vegetable should turn to a very pretty light green color once it has been sufficiently boiled.
Strain and set aside.

In a large sauté pan, heat the olive oil.
Sauté the garlic and the red pepper flakes in the olive oil until it is a light brown color.
Add the Brussell Sprouts, stirring them into the garlic mixture until they are well coated.
Sauté for an additional 5 minutes.
Serve hot.
This is Mushy’s favorite.  In her words “yummy, yummy, yummy”.


Roasted Sliced Yams
Submitted by Linda from Woke Up Out of Bed

Olive Oil
Sea Salt
Fresh Ground Pepper

Preheat the oven to 350*.
Coat a roasting pan with olive oil.
Slice the yams in 2” thick rounds.
Sprinkle the yam rounds with more olive oil, sea salt, and freshly ground black pepper.
You may also add any additional herbs you like.
Bake for 20 minutes.  Turn.  Bake for an additional 20 minutes.


Spiced Pecans
Submitted by Betsy from My Five Men

(2) cup pecan halves
(1/4) cup brown sugar
(1/4) cup melted butter
(4) tsp hot sauce, like Cholula
(1) tsp salt
(1/2) tsp pepper

Spray cookie sheet with oil.  Mix all ingredients and spread in a single layer on sheet.
Bake 350* for 12 minutes, stirring once half way through.
Coating will harden as it cools.  
These are mildly hot and spicy but nicely balanced with the brown sugar.  Very addictive!


What are your Thanksgiving meal Plans?
Gobble, Gobble.


  1. Yum! I love Brussels sprouts, so I will keep that for myself. If I tried to bring Brussels sprouts to Thanksgiving, I think my family would shoot me, ha ha.

    And by the way, I just got you out of spammer jail on my site. I'm not even sure why you went there, but it should be safe to comment from now on :)

    1. Oh yay!! At least I wasn't going crazy when it wasn't letting me comment on your page. haha

      Happy Thanksgiving!! :)

  2. Garlic is good for killing those parasites within, so that is sure a win.

    1. Yep, can eat it, eat t raw every once in a while to give my insides a good dose lol

    2. LOL Oh yes, how can I forget about your green tea??? LMAO

    3. I'm still trying to figure out how to eat garlic and teach without killing my students... Any suggestions?

  3. Have a very happy thanksgiving.
    We will be doing most of the cooking.

  4. yum....I'm trying your brussels very soon!

    1. Let me know if you like. So yummy!! Thanks for participating and I hope you had an amazing holiday. :)

  5. Those looks liked some delicious recipes. I am not really doing anything on Thanksgiving besides trying not to get killed at my retail job.

    1. Oh no!! It's an awful weekend to work in retail. Hope you enjoyed anyway. :)

  6. I do like sprouts, although my tummy sometimes starts riots after receiving their visit LOL

  7. I'm gonna make hamburger helper before I go to work so when I get home after midnight, I can just microwave it. I will be keeping these recipes for when I don't work though. =) Happy Thanksgiving, enjoy the food!

    1. I never had that before. Is it any good? I know it's quick.

    2. It's not very good leftover, which I discovers last night. It's decent when you first cook it though. I add different seasonings to different flavors to make it better though.

  8. We went to my brother's house for Thanksgiving

    1. That sounds nice! It's all about family. :)

  9. I love a rigorous boil. Minor problem, though.... I can't cook to save my life. Spiced Pecans... yum!

  10. Delicious! I tried to find brussell sprouts a couple of weeks ago and no one had them. What the heck? Anything made with garlic and love can't be bad!!

  11. Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity, I can help you solve any problem you are having
    (1) If you want your ex back.
    (2) If you want to stop having bad dreams.
    (3) You want to be promoted in your office.
    (4) You want women/men to run after you.
    (5) If you want a child.
    (6) You want to be rich.
    (7) You want to tie your husband/wife to be yours forever.
    (8) If you need financial assistance.
    (9) If you want to stop your divorce.
    (10 If you want to divorce your husband.
    (11) If you want your wishes to be granted.
