Creamed Brussels Sprouts | Peaches Please

There are few things I enjoy more than taking a beautiful, healthy vegetable and doctoring it up with cream and cheese. It’s like luring  something pure and wholesome to the dark side and it makes me feel all contrary and rebellious. I’m such a bad ass. But hey, if ever there’s a time to go for broke and bring on the cream, cheese and butter, then Thanksgiving is it. A day during which we give thanks for the good things and people in our lives and then we stuff ourselves silly. Why not give thanks for some creamy goodness while we’re at it? And this is some rich, cheesy,creamy goodness. Creamed Brussels Sprouts   Save Print A decadent, creamy brussels

Green Bean Casserole from Scratch | Peaches Please

 What? You didn’t think I was serious about getting my holiday on? That’s hilarious. I love the whole holiday season.

I think it’s something about how vibrant cranberries are. I mean, the color alone is just gorgeous. Then there’s the flavor – super tart with a hint of bitterness. Love it or hate it, you have to admit that cranberries are unabashedly what they are, which is a trait I admire in life.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies | Peaches Please http://peachesplease.com/pumpkin-meringue-cookies/ ‎

I’m a little obsessed with pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. Ever since that day in law school when I stumbled across a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie in the Briarcliff Whole Foods I’ve craved them. And I don’t mean that random craving you have once in a while. I always wanted those cookies. Always. I used to buy them in bulk during the holidays and freeze them so I could have them  year round. I’m not kidding. This naturally leads to the impulse to bake with pumpkin and chocolate chips which, while held in check most of the year, I unleash in the fall. I’m not sure why it occurred to me to try making a pumpkin meringue cookie, but I sure
