Risotto with Sausage, Brussels Sprouts and Sundried Tomatoes

fallrisotto3

Did you know that in ancient times, “autumn” actually translates to “eat risotto?” It does. But don’t try to look it up because Merriam and Webster had a fight last night and the site’s down. Don’t you just love risotto? I could snarf it year round, but I especially dig it during the fall, because […]

It’s so so so so sososososo fall right now. SO fall. And I seriously c.a.n.n.o.t. soak it up enough. I know I’m probably annoying the tar out of you guys with my constant Instagram fall nature pictures, but I can’t heeeeeeelp it. Everywhere I look I’m like HOW IS THAT TREE EVEN DOING THAT. HOW […]

Chicken and Black Rice-Stuffed Acorn Squash

We have an issue. It all started with an acorn squash. Okay two acorn squashes. And my overactive sweat glands. I’d decided that since it was October the 1st, I’d be a good American citizen girl of the Americas and stuff some squash. With yumminess like browned chicken, black rice, veggeroos and herbaroos.

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for! Well, *I* have, at least. Remember how I told you about becoming a part of the Tablespoon.com team? Well, I’m still squealing every 5 minutes and running around like a butternut squash with its head cut off. (see what I did there?) Without further ado, I present […]

I really need to trim my toenails. OH, HEY. Wow, you’re quiet. How long have you been standing there? Wow. Remember yesterday when I told you about my husband cooking for me all weekend due to an expensive mountain bike purchase? (I’m still coping.) Well, this here chili was another one of his creations. You […]

Roasted Butternut Squash and Kale Pizza

A couple of evenings ago my phone danced around on the kitchen table, alerting me of a new text. “I’ve some got butternut squash from my parent’s garden for ya. Can I drop by real quick?” Sa-weeeeet. We hadn’t grown any butternut squash in our garden this year (or ever), so when Carly brought the […]
