These recipes look fantastic. Will definitely be trying the green beans. Browned butter and sesame seeds sounds wonderful. The mashed potatoes look delicious as well. We often add a bit of celery root to our potatoes this time of year. Gives it a wonderful earthy flavor. Happy Holidays!

I don’t even think they sell celery root around where I live…. in western Massachusetts, but I do love that idea! (I’m gonna see if I can locate some celery root!!
Wishing a very merry holiday season to you and yours!! ; o )
