Cinnamon Carrot Soup

My boyfriend loves carrots.  He’s probably part rabbit with how excited he gets when I present him with just a  raw pealed carrot.  One time I was at the store and I impulsively bought a huge bag of carrots.  It was like 5 pounds.  I have no idea what I was thinking.  Even with how [...]

Butternut Squash Baked Vegetarian Taquitos

Butternut Squash Baked Vegetarian Taquitos

Most Mexican places have vegetarian options.  Cheese enchiladas, bean and cheese burritos, stuff like that.  What I never ever ever see is vegetarian taquitos.  It’s a shame because taquitos are basically fried tortillas around (meat) stuffing and it sounds quite delicious. I saw roasted veggie taquitos and I knew that I could do the same [...]

Butternut Squash Lasagna

This post originally appeared on Ginger Snap Crafts. I first had butternut squash in the form of ravioli.  From there, I started trying butternut squash in different recipes (and believe me, I’ve tried a bunch of butternut squash recipes), but I always go back to my first love: pasta.  My attempt to make my own pasta was a touch rough [...]

Tofu Stir Fry with Peanut Sauce

I recently received a Wüsthof  Chai Dao knife to review.  This post isn’t even part of my review, but that knife is the reason I made this stir fry.  I wanted to chop a lot of vegetables and there is no better way to do that than with stir fry.  I also needed pictures for [...]

Butternut Squash Cranberry Quinoa

The story behind this combination of flavors to create butternut squash cranberry quinoa shows just why I love being a food blogger. I love to read about food.  Going over a recipe and seeing all the variety of ingredients and studying how they combined them.  It’s exciting to see new ways people have combined food [...]

French Onion Soup

French Onion Soup

I’m struggling with how to start this post. I just want to repeat “I love french onion soup” over and over, but you still probably won’t understand how much I love it. If I’m at a restaurant that serves french onion soup, I’ll either order it or be depressed until I can go back and order [...]

Carrot Souffle Recipe

Carrot Souffle

So for September, I challenged myself to make soufflé for The Scary Adventure.  This post is a little late…I was mad at this dish and here’s why.  First, I burned some butter.  Then I made half the soufflé (the part with the egg yolks) and I set it out to let it could cool.  I [...]

Corn Chowder and Dumplings

Corn Dumpling Soup

I’m starting to be a little wary of spicy corn soups.  I absolutely love the, but sometimes they don’t come out quite right.  The last time I made a spicy corn soup, it turned pink. Not just slightly pink either, it was bright pepto-bismol pink with bright yellow corn in it.  My friend described it [...]

Party Nachos

Party Nachos

I love nachos, but I hate when they get soggy.  It’s like all the delicious toppings become too much for the chip and it ends up just being kinda gross.  I also never understood why people think that nachos make such great appetizers.  Sure, the chips can all be separated, but what about the big [...]

Broccoli Pesto Bake

Broccoli Pesto Bake

Sometimes at the end of the week I’ll end up with really weird things left over.  A tiny little bit of cheese, a handful of chopped onion, you know what I mean.  Random odds and ends of food that didn’t get used up.  Instead of tossing this all away there are two things I always [...]
