Pomegranate Molasses Sweet Potatoes

It's November and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I love Thanksgiving it is the official start of the holiday season and one of my favorite times of year. Cooking for Thanksgiving and getting to share what I love doing with loved ones is such a joy. I also like Thanksgiving because it's when the diet goes out the window, and you eat with abandon. In that spirit we created this recipe. Its fun, sweet and a change from your regular candied yams.  Pomegranate Molasses Sweet Potatoes 3 Pounds sweet potatoes (or yams) 1 stick of unsalted butter 1/2 cup of molasses 1 jar Just Jan's Pomegranate Spread Finishing Salt  To prepare, begin by scrubbing the sweet potatoes with cold...

Cheesy Polenta with Balsamic Onion

I wanted to do a side that was a little different for Thanksgiving, after all we always have mashed potatoes. Polenta is a great alternative and takes much less time and effort. You can make polenta take on any flavor you want, for this version I wanted something rich, creamy and cheesy. I combined polenta with cheddar cheese, and my Balsamic Onion spread, and topped it all off with bacon. YUM.

Figgy Bourbon Milkshake

As the seasons change so do our cocktails of choice.  While Summer is a time for lighter fruit based cocktails, Fall is perfect for some bolder, deeper flavors.  Bourbon is a spirit that can be a bit of an acquired taste, it can take some time to appreciate its complexities.  With that in mind I wanted to kind of demystify bourbon, its not just a drink for cigar rooms, and speakeasies, it has a playful side too. I love my Kadota Fig Spread and am always looking for excuses to experiment with it. Bourbon and fig is a match made in heaven.  Figs have a unique sweetness that perfectly compliments the smokiness of the bourbon. Even with the fig to...

  Fall is a such a fun time of year. The leaves are changing, the temperatures are dropping, and the end of the year seems like its just around the corner.  When I think of food and Fall, I can't help but think of Pumpkin.  From Halloween to Thanksgiving, pumpkin is just synonymous with Fall.  If you want to get your pumpkin fix without getting the whole pumpkin this is perfect for you.
