The end of the month is rapidly approaching, which means it is time for Mystery Dish! Today’s recipe is a little bit different than what I usually make. I am recently obsessed with Indian food and curry, and so I was very excited to try a recipe using curry! I hadn’t really eaten Indian food until about 2 years ago. Once I tried it though, I was hooked. The spices used are so flavorful and rich and delicious.

The title of this dish is a mouthful – Kabocha Squash Curry with Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Farro – but I couldn’t leave any of the ingredients out of the name! It is surprisingly simple to make, and is super healthy. This is a great “starter” dish for those who are new to curry and Indian food (like me!)…

Ok I know what you’re thinking right now – Broccoli? But what about the donuts and cookies and chocolate peanut butter anything? Don’t worry, they are coming soon (I may or may not have made these last night…). But I just HAD to tell you about this broccoli. Why?

Because it is the absolute best broccoli I have ever had. In fact, it is the best veggie I have ever had – at a restaurant or in my own kitchen. I’m not exaggerating. This stuff is amazing. It even converted TheBetterHalf into a broccoli lover, and he had previously not been a fan of the healthy green vegetable. Plus it is so simple to make – there are only 5 ingredients, and that is counting salt and pepper!…

Candied Sweet Potato Casserole

Candied Sweet Potato Casserole | chezcateylou.com

It is Thanksgiving Week, Day 4! Time for some potatoes, because what is Thanksgiving without at least two types of potatoes.  I love traditional mashed potatoes (smothered in gravy of course) but since that recipe is fairly basic, I decided to make sweet potatoes. There are so many ways to prepare sweet potatoes, but I went for a candied sweet potato casserole topped with glazed pecans!  You could top this one with marshmallows instead if you are so inclined, but TheBetterHalf is not a marshmallow fan.  He actually said “It’s Thanksgiving, not summer camp.” So that’s that.  …
