Beer-Battered Onion RingsBy Ginny's TeamWelcome in the summer and delight your guests at barbecues and parties with homemade beer-battered onion rings! Serve them as an appetizer before a barbecue, as a side to delicious burgers, or even on top of a juicy steak. It's important for your onions to be sweet, since the right onion will really improve the taste of the onion rings. You can slice them as thick or as thin as you'd like; it's all about personal preference. The same rule goes for the cup of beer the recipes calls for. Just use your preferred brew! These beer-battered onion rings are so tasty that you'll have to make sure to set enough aside for yourself before you let your guests try them, or they'll be gone before you know it.

Bacon Green BeansBy Ginny's TeamIf you're looking for a simple side dish that can be whipped up in a hurry with a few classic ingredients, look no further than these bacon green beans! You only need bacon, onion, garlic, fresh green beans, and a little bit of seasoning to get the perfect complement to any main dish. We love the crispness of the fresh green beans mixed with the sweet savoriness of bacon. Another delicious treat? Use the bacon grease leftover from frying your bacon and use it to cook the onions and the garlic. Bacon green beans have never been so simple, so delicious, and so much fun!
Glazed SquashBy Ginny's TeamMake Thanksgiving a little bit easier with this simple glazed squash recipe. There's no need to gather a dozen different ingredients and spend hours fussing over this vegetable dish! You just need two acorn squashes, a half cup of brown sugar, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. The brown sugar makes the squash sweet enough that even the pickiest of eaters will be asking for seconds, while the hands-off baking time lets you focus on more complicated main dishes. That's why glazed squash has become one of our staple fall side dishes!
Easy Honey Glazed CarrotsBy Ginny's TeamThese easy honey glazed carrots are the perfect Thanksgiving side. They're sweet enough to taste like candy, but carrots still add a healthy balance to the holiday feast. Cut regular sized carrots into one-inch lengths, or take an extra step out of the process and simply use baby carrots or pre-cut carrots. Feel free to sprinkle on some fresh thyme or dill when they're served, though these easy honey glazed carrots will taste just as good with simple salt and pepper!
Parmesan CauliflowerBy Ginny's TeamA creamy, cheesy, crispy side that will surely be a hit at Thanksgiving! Of course, parmesan cauliflower is just as tasty any other time of the year too.
Zucchini Turnip Spiral SaladBy Ginny's TeamTaste all of the refreshing flavors of summer in our zucchini turnip spiral salad! From zesty lemon juice to sweet cherry tomatoes, you'll find all the contents of your vegetable garden in this yummy salad. We recommend using a spiral cutter to make noodles out of the zucchini and turnip. However, if you don't have a spiral cutter, never fear! You can also cut the zucchini into thin slices and the turnips into 1/2" chunks. They won't look as much like noodles, but they will taste just as delicious. Zucchini turnip spiral salad is the perfect weekend lunch for a lazy summer day; eat it outside on a back porch or lawn chair for the full effects of the season!
