I was very excited when Better Homes & Gardens asked me to share a recipe with you. I’ve only been blogging for a little more than a year and this is my first guest post ever. I still can’t believe it’s on Delish Dish! How cool is that? I was able to choose any recipe on the BHG site to adapt. With Thanksgiving a week away I decided to take a classic side dish and make it low carb and Trim Healthy Mama friendly. I chose Cream Cheese Mashers with Kale Pesto knowing cauliflower would work to replace the potatoes.
We are traveling for Thanksgiving but I’m hoping my sister-in-law let’s me help with Thanksgiving dinner. Besides the turkey I’m hoping for a few solid low carb, THM S options. These Cream Cheese Cauliflower Mashers with Asiago are a definite. Also in the options are a healthy green bean casserole, roasted broccoli, butternut squash, and my Braided Garlic Breadsticks. I might whip up some Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes to finish off the meal.
I love cooking so much that I end up there no matter where we are for holidays. I just elbow my relatives out of the way and plant myself before the stove. Half kidding. But at the very least I come armed with appetizers, sides, and pies from my own kitchen.
I have a few more Thanksgiving posts coming before Turkey Day so stay tuned. I’ll make sure to highlight them in my weekly newsletter. There are boxes in the sidebar and at the bottom of my posts to sign up for that.
You will have to click over there for the Cream Cheese Cauliflower Mashers recipe.
I know, I’m such a tease. But this recipe is worth it.
Once you get to BHG just click on the words “Cream Cheese Mashers with Kale Pesto” to get the original recipe. My adaptations are in the post text.
Here are a few hints as to what this recipe entails:
The best part is this reheats well. Feel free to bake it the day before and then just microwave to reheat. With a gigantic turkey in the oven I understand if you won’t have room for a side dish. Been there.
