The tender potato slices in this cozy casserole have a mild fennel flavor with a hint of nutmeg. Add a creamy sauce and a sprinkling of Parmesan, and you have a homey side dish your family will ask for again and again.
Asparagus never tasted so good! Simply seasoned with butter and green onions, the roasted spears have a fresh flavor and keep their bright color, too. You might want to make extra.
These spiced green beans are back on the menu at our family gatherings again. For years, Grandma Wasnock had serve them on Christmas Day. We forgot about the recipe until my aunt served this dish at her daughter's wedding. That's when we found out the recipe came from a homemade cookbook my aunt received at her wedding shower.

I wanted to make a colorful vegetable for Christmas dinner one year and came up with this combination. It was a big hit with our guests. Even my nephew, who attended culinary school, was impressed!

The first time I made this rich side dish for a big family meal, it was an instant hit. When everyone had eaten their fill, there was a lively discussion on who would be the lucky one to take home the leftovers.
