If there is anything I like to have exactly the same every single year, almost without exception, it’s my very traditional Classic Midwestern Stuffing. If you read that post, you’ll see I’m a little bit adamant about it. But then a couple of years ago, my sister talked me into doing her Ridiculously Delish Bacon Stuffing, and now, here I am posting out this recipe for a Chorizo & Cranberry Cornbread Stuffing.
So does everybody these days like Brussels Sprouts now that there’s been such a resurgence and they’ve become so popular? Or are there still hold-outs out there? If there are, I’ll eat yours! Seriously, here’s a recipe, Roasted Balsamic Brussels Sprouts that’s fabulous. I can’t guarantee that it will convert all the haters out there, but you might lure one or two over to the dark side.
So maybe this is just the week for Mexican basics done in the Instant Pot. The other day it was my Instant Pot Refried Beans, and today it’s Instant Pot Mexican Rice. Which makes me wonder, do people from Mexico call their Mexican Rice “Mexican Rice?” I’m from Iowa and I call my Ham Balls “Iowa Ham Balls” on my site (because that recipe really IS made a lot in Iowa, probably a nod to the German settlers and it has that hallmark Sweet n’ Sour flavor) but if I’m just talking to someone, I just say Ham Balls. Just saying it makes me want to snicker, btw. Here’s the recipe for Iowa Ham Balls with Sweet Sour Glaze, now that I mentioned them.
When I was younger, I wasn’t a huge potato salad fan. Even my Mom’s, and she went the whole route with homemade mayonnaise and everything. But I appreciate it more, now, and I especially appreciate it when its a lot easier than Mom’s. And I appreciate it when it’s this creamy, Classic Potato Salad, Instant Pot or Not.
I gotta say I’ve never been a huge fan of out standard American potato salad. Of course, that never stops me from eating it if I’m at a barbecue or potluck, but sometimes I wish there was something a little different. Something that wakes up the taste buds. Something a little special. This White & Sweet Potato Salad with Chutney Dressing is all that and more!
