Green ‘Beast’ Dressing

Another Nom Nom Paleo recipe. John and I weren’t super into this as a salad dressing, but it worked solidly as a chicken marinade.

Make-Ahead Thanksgiving Stock

This is a more ambitious stock recipe than I usually do for Thanksgiving, but I needed it for another recipe and it did end up being quite flavorful. Came in handy for leftover recreations too.

Pickled Daikon

A sweet pickling recipe I made to use up the rest of the daikon John bought for our izakaya meal (another daikon recipe in this vein to follow). This is an easy one.

Ramp Pesto

Good use of ramps! I loosely followed this recipe for inspiration. I used this later in pasta (recipe to follow) and it was delicious.

Ginger Carrot Dressing

This is my second time attempting this dish. This recipe was much better, so I was glad a friend recommended a good one! Makes a ton, and it really does taste like the kind you find in sushi restaurants.

Leftover Sausage Gravy

I had a mix of leftover sausage – two cooked bangers from a restaurant meal, and one uncooked link of Andouille John had left over from a recipe. Combined them both into a gravy we paired with these biscuits (which turned out a little flat — curious if I overworked the dough, had old baking powder, or what. But not posting until I make them more successfully). Less of a recipe and more an idea to keep in mind the next time I have leftover sausage.
