A few weeks ago I was asked to review Rick Rodger’s new cookbook, The Big Book of Sides. Seeing as how he is an award winning author, I knew it would be good. With more than 450 recipes, there is really something for everyone.
This book could not have come out at a better time. This is the first year that we are hosting Thanksgiving for a large group and I needed some new tasty dishes. I can honestly say that half of my Thanksgiving meal is coming from this book. From Stuffed Artichoke Bottoms to Homemade Creamed Corn, my guests will hopefully leave content with full bellies!
With vegetarian, grain, vegetable, salad, bread, and sauce recipes, this is really the only book you would need to host a dinner party. Let your sides shine!
I was instantly intrigued when I saw the recipe for these Sweet Potato and Pecan Dinner rolls. I have used mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin in cinnamon rolls before and the results were fantastic. There is something about the starch that adds moisture to the bread. These rolls were no different. They were incredibly soft and moist.
You can’t really taste the sweet potato, however it adds a pretty orange color to the rolls. The pecans added a nice crunch too. These rolls are perfect for your holiday meal and the dough can be made 12 hours in advance!
If you are looking for a new cookbook that will please everyone and every season, The Big Book of Sides is a great choice. It would also be a great gift for your foodie friend!
