You guys, I had such a fun and fall filled weekend last weekend! I made us start this pumpkin picking tradition last year. Although the pumpkin patch is about an hour and a half away from our house and we don’t stay for too long, I think it is so much fun to go pick out and cut our own pumpkins! They also have delicious caramel corn and they greet you with handfuls of it as soon as you pull into the parking lot and they have roasted corn on the cob that is hard to pass up. It really doesn’t get much better!
For some reason I always had it in my head that soup was something that was really hard to make, so I never made it. Since I’m not a huge fan of canned soup, one of the only times I ever at soup was when I was ate home visiting my family. My mom was always making lentil and split pea soups and as much as I loved eating them, I didn’t want to spend the time to make them myself.
Rather then tell you about how much I love hummus (which is a whole lot) I’m going to talk about my love of lemons today!Continue Reading
I don’t think that there is much that you can’t do with butternut squash. You can roast it and put it in almost anything from salads to pastas, you can make delicious soup out of it, you can make desserts, and you can even make macaroni and cheese with it! I like to affectionately refer to butternut squash as “roasted gold”, and it really lives up to the name!
Does anyone else out there regularly get packages delivered to their doorstep and get so excited because they’ve completely forgotten what they ordered a few days before? Or am I the only one with an online shopping addiction?!Continue Reading
My friend Katie Schmidt, who blogs over at Whole Nourishment, (an awesome food blog that really embraces whole foods and healthy eating, two things that I also love!) came up with the idea to put together this great series called Cooking For One. And I was really excited when she asked me to be a part of it!Continue Reading
The most amazing thing happened this morning, I actually turned my heat on on the way to work! The weather has been so perfect lately, which puts me in the best mood ever!
Also, I gotta say that these veggie enchiladas with pumpkin enchilada sauce are some of the best enchiladas I’ve ever made, and trust me, I have made a lot!
I realize that in the food blog world I’m like 3 months behind, but I finally broke down and bought my first can of pumpkin today!
