Every gardener knows spring is the busy season for planting, but you can save a ton of time by doing some of it in the fall. One of the season's easiest veggies to grow: garlic.

The time has finally come to amp up your mac and cheese. And not with traditional ingredients like bread crumbs or even bacon. Instead, give it a seasonal twist by mixing your cheesy noodles with — wait for it — butternut squash. Sure, it may sound like an odd move, but smothering elbow noodles in a cheesy, gourd-y mix actually creates a rich, comforting flavor that's hard to resist. Who knows — it may even make an appearance on the Thanksgiving dinner table.

Say hello to your new favorite side salad. This dish showcases the best of Brussels sprouts by skipping the blanching and ramps up the flavor with a good roast. Pair it with a honey mustard dressing and even Brussels sprout skeptics will be converted!

When you're looking for a light and healthy side dish, nothing could be easier than cauliflower rice. All you need is a food processor! Serve it with a simple baked chicken or as part of a big Thanksgiving meal — either way, you'll have happy eaters in no time.

You've mastered the classic sweet potato casserole, now try your hand at another spud-tastic dessert: sweet potato soufflé. It's just sweet enough to highlight the natural flavor of the potatoes, and it's light, airy texture ensures you'll have plenty of room for a second serving of Thanksgiving turkey later on.

There are so many reasons to love twice-baked potatoes. Because they're baked twice (yep, the name gives it away), the skin is roasted to crispy perfection. And once the mashed insides are piled high, they can be mixed with anything you want! Plus, this steakhouse favorite is super easy to make at home. Call it a win-win-win!
