Snowed In With A Chinese Five Spice Veggie Stir Fry

So, Sunday the plumbers came and put in our new water heater. We were so excited to have hot water, to finally wash dishes that were stack­ing up, to finally shower. Unfortunately we’d had to wait. For what­ever rea­son our new water heater was wired incor­rectly and as a result had no power. It would […]

I’m Back! And I Made Spaghetti and Turkey Meatballs with Home-Made Sauce!

Okay, I know. It’s been way too long since I’ve posted. I could bore you with many excuses about how I’ve been too busy or how being sick fol­lowed by the major hol­i­days really got the best of me and my time. But in real­ity, my heart just hasn’t been in it. I’m not sure […]

Thanksgiving Leftovers: Spicy Tequila Lime Turkey Tacos

Everybody has expe­ri­enced it. Piles of thanks­giv­ing food left over after the big meal. For days at almost every meal its turkey, dress­ing, pota­toes, etc. Monday I took a big plate of every­thing we had at Thursday’s Thanksgiving feast to work with me for lunch. It was still really good, but it had lost its […]

Thanksgiving, Family and Food. And a Recipe!

I hope every­one had a great Thanksgiving. I know we did, but we almost didn’t. A few weeks ago I came down with the swine flu which then turned into pleurisy. For more than the last two weeks I have been in bed. I didn’t really leave the bed or couch unless i needed to […]

My Butternut Squash Lasagna

Okay, I’m back. It’s been crazy around here. We went to Portland, OR for an awe­some get-a-way that turned into a glo­ri­ous week-long extrav­a­ganza of foodie bliss. I promise I’ll soon post a recap of our trip along with pic­tures of some great times. But for now, on with the show! I’ve titled this My Butternut […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
