Glazed Sweet Potatoes

We’re starting things off with a simple yet timeless recipe, glazed sweet potatoes. This classic recipe is perfect for putting together as a side dish for a family meal, for a random weekday dinner, or as a new addition to a big dinner party spread. We love that it has all of the delicious warming flavors you are looking for, while adding some nutritional value with the sweet potatoes! Made with just six simple ingredients, you’ll win over the hearts and stomachs of anyone you’re feeding. Here’s what you’ll need to pick up to create this dish:

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes
  • Pineapple juice
  • Light or dark brown sugar
  • Vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon
  • Unsalted butter

Butternut Squash Curry

For a dish with more of a hearty and homey feel, try out a butternut squash curry! With savory Thai flavors, this dish encapsulates everything that a fall dish should. It is warming, hearty, and will leave you wanting more every time. Fairly simple to make, but packed with incredible flavor, this curry will make everyone who gets to enjoy it think that you spent all day in the kitchen. Did we mention it is vegetarian? Filled with nutritious vegetables and healthy spices, you can enjoy all of the fall flavors while your body reaps the benefits! It’s also a one-pot dish, making it an easy clean-up and soon to be a staple in your weekly meal rotation this fall and winter.

Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

Casseroles are the ultimate warm and comforting meal. Not only are they cozy and savory, but they can also feed a lot of people and can be easily reheated! When we compare this casserole to the MIND Diet that we follow here at Marshall Pines, it’s a little bit of a cheat meal because of the cheesy goodness. Have no fear though, the MIND Diet still allows a little dairy consumption in moderation here and there! This cheesy chicken and broccoli casserole also includes a great amount of protein and is so delicious you and your loved ones won’t mind that it is. Serve warm with a fresh baguette or fresh salad on the side, and your loved ones will definitely ask for seconds!

Winter is a great time to get creative in the kitchen with the seasonal flavors. These comforting dishes are the perfect addition to any gathering, or to have on your own throughout the winter season. We can’t wait to hear about all the new yummy recipes our residents at Marshall Pines will try with their families and loved ones.
