Uncommonly Good Homemade Avocado Shrimp Sushi Rolls

Not long ago I went out to dinner with some girlfriends, and we ate avocado rolls as our appetizer. They were absolutely delicious, but they also looked far too delicate and intricate for anything I could (or would) possibly attempt making in my own kitchen. Not so, and I’m here to show you how.

Showstopper Thanksgiving Turkey Bread Bowl Appetizer with Creamy Spinach Ranch Dip

This Turkey Bread Bowl with Creamy Spinach Ranch Dip is an appetizer I brought to my brother and sister-in-law’s house last year when they hosted Thanksgiving. That year, I made him the morning of Thanksgiving and then all year I kept him in the back of my mind so I could bring him to you this year. After all, he’s just too cute (and tasty) not to share with you here.

Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Chili with Pumpkin Shaped Biscuits

This chili can be made with or without meat. Since my husband enjoys his chili with meat, I added browned bits of Italian sausage into the slow cooker along with all the other ingredients. However, by omitting the sausage and swapping vegetable broth for the beef broth, this chili becomes completely vegetarian. Talk about versatile!
