“We’re all guilty of staying in our comfort zones when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner. I get it – no one wants to mess up the most important meal of the year! But if you’d like to try something different this year, Asian-inspired sides might be a good starting point if you’re not ready to make the centerpiece Asian-style turkey yet!
Today I want to introduce you to the Chinese-inspired sticky rice stuffing.
This recipe uses sticky rice, crunchy water chestnuts, tender Chinese sausage, umami shiitake mushrooms, and soy sauce. The end product has a great texture and a comforting and rich taste. The recipe does require you to soak the rice in advance. But once that’s done, I guarantee you’ll be surprised how easy this recipe for sticky rice stuffing is. “
From Sarah : I am still trying to figure out how to write a post with the NEW-To ME Block System. I don’t like it. Not one bit. This is a NEW -TO ME Blog. Omnivore Cookbook was one of the Saveur Award Winners For Food Blogs. This recipe is a little different from the stuffing/dressing recipes we usually see this time of year. Definitely, a Chinese inspired recipe. I look forward to reading more from this blog. Love And Hugs, Sarah
I have a fabulous dressing recipe for you, just in time for the holidays. Cornbread Biscuit Dressing is fantastic. It’s made with cornbread made from Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix and biscuits also made from a mix. It tastes heavenly especially if you enjoy stuffings and dressings with your turkey dinner. Cornbread Biscuit Dressing does take… via […]
From Sarah : I have a confession. I love dressing /stuffing. I don’t care what you call it. I always make my mom’s recipe. ALWAYS! It’s a wonderful bread and herb dressing. Lots of flavor. I also make a corn and oyster casserole/ dressing. Both Danny and I love it. For our Thanksgiving meal at the park, I make a combination cornbread/ bread dressing. This one changes from year to year. Sometimes, I make 2 different ones. We have Southern And Northern Staff And Volunteers. I am to please.
As we get ready for the holiday season, it’s time to start thinking about our holiday dinner menu. Will you serve a ham, wild turkey or a juicy game hen? Regardless of the meat, a good stuffing recipe is needed to accompany this feast. In Laura Ingalls Wilder’s These Happy Golden Years, (and mentioned in other books), cornbread stuffing plays a big role at dinner, especially since it’s topped with bacon…….
This recipe is part of Barbara Walker’s cookbook, The Little House Cookbook: Frontier Foods from Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Classic Stories. We adapted the original recipe by adding a few more ingredients to it for color and flavor, such as red and green peppers and onion. The recipe also calls for adding seasoning and sage to the cornbread mixture after it’s baked. We decided to sprinkle the sage on top of the cornbread mixture before baking it.
From Sarah : I have this wonderful cookbook. I also have Melissa’s Gilbert’s “My Prairie Cookbook”. Little House On The Prairie was a favorite TV show. We watched it as a family. I had all of the book when I was a child. When my niece started reading , she got her own set.
From Sarah: I was going to add some more photos but was having trouble uploading them. Love And Hugs, Sarah
Hey everyone it’s Alli from Tornadough Alli coming at you again! Thanksgiving is literally right around the corner? Who is excited? I know this gal is! I’m slightly obsessed with food…but obviously if I write a food blog you’d kind of come to that conclusion right? So it’s really no secret.
Ok maybe I’ll clarify myself, I’m slightly obsessed with lots of food all coming at me at once. And what better time to get in on that action then Thanksgiving? You have so many delicious dishes that everyone brings that the possibilities are endless and you have food for days…
