Spicy Pumpkin Curry Soup

Lately, with the weather going fur­ther and fur­ther towards win­ter here in Nashville, we have been crav­ing foods with warmth. Especially Megan, who could die from hypother­mia in 70º weather. And I’m not just talk­ing about food that is served warm. Megan had the idea for this spicy, India-inspired pump­kin soup that sounded like it […]

Apple Pie-O-Lantern and Spiked Spiced Cider

With fall apon us (and threat­en­ing to sur­ren­der us com­pletely to win­ter), few things sound bet­ter to me right now than warm baked goods uti­liz­ing the fruits that are in sea­son. For dessert last night, Megan made this awe­somely adorable and sea­son­ally appro­pri­ate apple pie-o-lantern. There wasn’t much to it, store bought crust, Megan’s mom’s […]

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes with Shaved Dark Chocolate

After the weeks of glo­ri­ous win­ter squashes from the CSA, this last week we finally got a pump­kin! We instantly started mak­ing a list of dishes want to use it for. Pumpkin bread, soup, muffins, pan­cakes, pie, etc. — you get the idea. Fortunately, the pump­kin was large enough that we can use it for a few […]

Butternut Squash Risotto, Illustrated

My boss recently turned me on to Cook’s Illustrated. How I had never pur­chased this mag­a­zine is beyond me. While I adore the amaz­ing food pho­tog­ra­phy, I really enjoy how the focus of CI is per­fect­ing the taste of recipes. No adver­tis­ing, no non­sense, just great recipes and help­ful tips. The cur­rent issue is “Italian […]

Creamy Winter Squash Soup and Fancy Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

A few weeks ago we received this strange, bul­bous, warty squash from our CSA. We had no idea what it was. After some research we dis­cov­ered that it was a Hubbard squash. I read that their flesh tends to be very moist and they they need to be cooked longer but that they are perfect […]

Hearty Harvest Hash & Cheesy Corn Muffins with Fresh Cayenne Peppers

It is beau­ti­ful out­side right now here in Nashville. It’s sunny, 70º and out my win­dow I can see the leaves del­i­cately float­ing toward the ground. With Fall in full swing here, I’ve been want­ing a good hearty break­fast. Taking full advan­tage of our new Lodge cast-iron cook­ware, Megan and I tag-teamed in the kitchen […]

Savory Butternut Squash and Potato Tart with Bacon and Herb Cream Sauce

First things first: it’s been a while. Too long. Between cel­e­bra­tory fes­tiv­i­ties and an enor­mous project at work, I’ve been slammed. Unfortunately, that has resulted in less time for the full-on cook­ing and doc­u­ment­ing of said full-onness. I promise I’ll try to do bet­ter, but I make no promises. And now on to our irregularly […]
