Easy Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Brisket
A spice rub with paprika, chili powder, cumin, brown sugar, cayenne, and garlic, and a smoky-sweet barbecue sauce with chipotle chiles lend mouth-watering layers of flavor to beef brisket, which gets incredibly tender after 10 hours in the slow cooker. Slice or shred the brisket and serve on good, sturdy bread for the ultimate BBQ sandwich, or make a combo plate with meat, slaw, baked beans, potato salad, or other classic BBQ sides.
Easy Roasted Acorn Squash
Roasted acorn squash couldn't be easier, or more delicious. A little butter, salt, freshly ground pepper, and a sprinkle of brown sugar to emphasize the squash's natural sweetness, plus about an hour in the oven, and you have a gorgeously caramelized side (or main dish, if you stuff the squash), with a pool of glaze in the center of each piece.
