roasted delicata squash with cranberries

My favorite thing about delicata squash doesn’t have anything to do with it’s luxurious, almost creamy taste, but rather the fact that I don’t have to spend what feels like hours of my time peeling the rind before cooking and eating. The delicata rind is not only edible, but with baking becomes quite tender and, […]

spiced buttermilk waffles with maple mascarpone whipped cream

I wouldn’t blame you for thinking that these waffles are merely a vessel for the maple mascarpone whipped cream – but that is simply not the case. Waffles are the queens of brunch food, and I don’t need to explain to you how much better they taste with some fall spices. And if it feels […]

roasted cauliflower soup

I had every intention of posting this recipe on the first day of fall, but like most things right now, our newborn’s needs trump nearly everything else.

bruschetta with heirloom tomato, mozzarella, and herbs

Of course, once I started making my own I stumbled upon a grocery store that does indeed sell spaetzle. […]

grilled zucchini “fries” with spicy honey mustard

A holiday weekend is just days away (at least in the US), and I’m betting this kicks off grilling season for many of you– FINALLY, am I right? Comfort food, we will see you in the fall. It’s time for burgers, caprese salads, fresh fruit, and practicing the art of “how many foods can I […]

hearty vegetarian protein bowls with garlic sesame peanut sauce

I’m not much of a “meal-prepper” at the moment. Sometimes I make enough dinner that there are leftovers for lunch the next day, but not much more than that. However, I’m sure I’ll change my tune when this baby arrives and putting real pants on or taking a shower suddenly becomes a grand achievement. I foresee […]
