Butternut Squash Alfredo Baked Shells

What is the best way to reach you? If someone wants to get ahold of me, I always recommend that they send a text (or iMessage).  Or next best would be an email.  Maybe call.  Possibly tweet.  Probably don’t leave a Facebook message.  And I rarely check my snail mailbox.  But pretty pretty...

German Potato Salad

Guten tag, meine freune!   Ok, I had to look up the “my friends” part of that on Google translate.  Clearly my German is not quite on par with my Spanish.  But hey, on the day that this post goes live, I will have already spent a week in...

Easy Cheesy Breakfast Casserole

My mom and I were talking the other day about how different life would be if we lived a little closer to one another. Right now, we live about 3 hours apart — close enough to definitely be able to drive and visit fairly often, but just far enough away...

Quinoa Stuffing 1

Quinoa “Stuffing” (Quinoa with Butternut Squash, Cranberries & Pistachios)

Happy almost-Thanksgiving everyone! I’m sure that most of you are way more organized than me and already have your meals planned down to the last detail.  But just in case you’re running a little behind (like me!), or for those of you who may be looking for a healthier stuffing recipe...

Pumpkin Roll

There are a few things that make this Fall different from years past: 1) The Kansas City Chiefs are winning.  Like, winning, people.  7-0!!!  Friends of mine who have never been into football are now clearing Sunday afternoons for the games.  (And if they are not, here’s why they should!)...

Hummus Mashed Potatoes

Ever since I posted my hummus-crusted chicken recipe last month, I have been itching to try some more creative recipes with hummus. So in honor of Thanksgiving, and my complete love of all things mashed potatoes, I decided to try an experiment this week — hummus mashed potatoes!  Yep....

Caramel Pear Cookies

Last week some of my good friends brought me over a huge back of freshly-picked pears and apples.  And as I was trying to plan how to put them to use over the next week, the idea of caramel pears came to mind.  And then better — caramel pear cookies!...

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins {Gimme Some Oven}

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

Today when I woke up, it finally felt like autumn. There has been a crisp breeze moving in over the past few days, but I have still been clinging to my iced coffees, sandals and open car windows in hopes of savoring just a few more days of summer....

Gingerbread Pancakes

Gingerbread Pancakes

My goal is to make this December a considerably healthier month than in years’ past.  And so far — thanks to a little self-control, and less time in the kitchen than usual (December is kind of a busy season working in a church!) — that mission has been mostly...

Fleur de Sel Caramels

Fleur de Sel Caramels

Ever since I saw Ina Garten make homemade fleur de sel caramels awhile back, I’ve been itching to give them a try myself.  I have to admit that candy thermometers still make me nervous (always get so anxious waiting for candies to reach the right temperature!!), but these looked...

Pumpkin Pie Biscotti

Pumpkin Pie Biscotti

My cabinets may or may not have an unusually plentiful supply of pumpkin this year… Ha – I can’t seem to help myself!  Ever since last year’s pumpkin shortage, an extra can always seems to make its way into my grocery bag whenever I pass by it in the...
