A delicious and easy side dish can be made by tossing asparagus and mushrooms together with olive oil and rosemary. I love roasting veggies and hit on this WONDERFUL combo. You could use a Hollandaise on the side.... but why??
Tomatoes and basil, fresh from the garden, are tossed with olives, bell peppers, rotini pasta, then dressed with a creamy, piquant blend of mayonnaise, red wine vinegar and garlic. Let the salad chill overnight to bring out the snappy flavors.
This recipe lets you use up left-over sweet potato. The cake is very moist, so you don't really need icing. Better yet, if you have left-over sweet potatoes from Thanksgiving, freeze them, and make this cake for Christmas. The whipped sweet potatoes I use already have some butter and sugar, so I only use 1 3/4 cups of sugar in the batter, but adjust the sugar amount to your liking.
