A blend of garlic, seasonings, and red wine combine to give you all the flavor of sausage, without the hassle of stuffing the meat into links. Makes a fantastic burger, topped with grilled peppers, onions and provolone cheese.
Go the extra mile by brining your turkey overnight in this lightly sweetened brine. You’ll end up with the juiciest, most flavorful turkey ever and maybe even a bellyache from eating too much! The brine also works well on chicken. This makes enough for a 14- to 16-pound turkey.
Microwaving spaghetti squash is much easier and quicker than waiting for it to roast in the oven. Once done, it is ready to be topped with your favorite ingredients, or kept simple with just a pat of butter and some salt. For longer strands, cut the squash crosswise instead of lengthwise.
Turn boring cauliflower into a delicious side when you top it with a caper and garlic brown butter. I like to cut my cauliflower into slices instead of florets, so there is more flat surface area for roasting and the topping doesn’t slide off.
Turn boring Brussels sprouts into a sophisticated side dish by combining earthy thyme, sour cranberries, and sweet maple syrup. This lightly sweetened dish is a great way to highlight delicious fall flavors.

Because of the wine, the sorbet will always remain scoopable, straight from the freezer!
Caprese salad meets sauteed zucchini noodles in this super easy dish filled with basil, tomatoes, and gooey cheese. Make sure all your ingredients are ready to go, because this will be ready fast. Take care not to overcook the zucchini noodles to prevent them from becoming mushy. Adjust the basil to your liking.
These Indian-inspired roasted vegetables have a pop of flavor and a hint of heat from the aromatic and well-known Indian spice blend, garam masala.

Cutting cauliflower into “steaks” and grilling them not only gives a flavorful, caramelized, and smoky taste, the presentation is lovely! A delicious change from boring old steamed cauliflower! I like my cauliflower a little on the firm side, so add a few extra minutes if you like it softer.
This salsa is so easy to throw together on days when you already have the smoker going. Tweak it to your preferred heat level by leaving some or all of the jalapeno seeds in for a spicier salsa! The longer you let the salsa sit, the better it becomes. I like to use hickory wood, but fruit woods also work great.
