Whole Wheat Pumpkin Nut Bread and Roasted Brussels with Bacon Dijon Vinaigrette are full of flavor, crowd-friendly and easy on the waistline.
Whether you’re hosting a family gathering, housing out of town visitors or need a dish to pass this holiday season, I’m thrilled to share two incredible recipes I’ve developed for the KitchenAid blog. First, a moist and delicious Whole Wheat Pumpkin Walnut Bread packed with warm spices and heart-healthy nuts. Tip: Freeze the bread in slices for easy re-heating on busy weekday mornings or snacking on-the-go.
Next, I’m sharing my Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon Dijon Vinaigrette. An ideal side dish for entertaining, it is also naturally gluten free if you happen to be hosting guests with food allergies.
Smoky bacon, spicy dijon and pure maple syrup coat every bite of this addictive and nutritious dish that is sure to convert even the pickiest eater.
Both of these recipes got a little help in the kitchen from my new favorite appliance, my KitchenAid Pro Line Cordless Blender. With an active toddler and a newborn keeping me busy these days, I need all the short cuts I can get! Head on over to the KitchenAid blog for both recipes plus tips for saving time in the kitchen this holiday season.
Disclosure: KitchenAid has compensated me for my time to create these recipes. As always, all thoughts are 100% my own.
