As a seafood lover, I’m tempted by the Sweet & Spicy Jamaican Jerk Shrimp Ackee Fried Rice. But with Christmas coming up, the Shaved Brussels Sprouts In Balsamic Ginger Sauce sound like a must-try!
all great recipe! glad there are vegan options too
Yum! All these side dishes look amazing! I will have to try some of them out. Thanks for sharing!
These all look so good! Especially that cranberry pasta. Yum!

Great ideas! I love orzo but never make it 🤷🏼♀️ I definitely think I need to revisit that for my dinner table
Some of these recipes sounds delicious especially the Jerk Chicken Mac and Cheese definitely need to give that a try. Thanks for sharing
The mac and cheese looks good, they all look good. Thanks for sharing!
The jerk chicken Mac and Cheese sounds like a great recipe. Mac and Cheese is a great dish, often quite filling on its own, so why not add jerk chicken and make it a meal
Unwanted Life, there is jerk chicken in the mac and cheese. It’s actually a complete meal on its own.
Mm.. oatmeal dumplings sounds delicious!
I’ve been meaning to try orzo for a while, it’s not easy to find in the UK
Thanks for dropping by Rachel. Hope you get to make the Orza side dish someday.
