I love cooking sides on holidays (I leave the bird up to my husband). This recipe for green beans in hazelnut butter is one of my faves but it's a lot more enjoyable to make when you're organized about it. I don't know where I'd be without these little glass mini bowls. You can purchase them at Cost Plus World Market. I LOVE them. It makes it easy to prep the ingredients, line them up in order of when they go into the recipe and completely feeds my neurotic brain that needs everything to look and feel a certain way.
