Roasted Red Kuri Squash Soup with Coconut + Halloween

Roasted Red Kuri Squash Soup with Coconut
This summer, we had a mystery squash growing in a garden. It was a mystery in that neither jwa nor I remembered planting any Red Kuri Squash but here it was – a beautiful red kuri growing in our garden. It was in a bed close to the compost so the theory is we either had a seed or two in the compost that ended up in the garden bed or maybe a critter buried the seed in the garden and it sprouted – either this way this fall . . . → Read More: Roasted Red Kuri Squash Soup with Coconut + Halloween

FFwD: Pork Chops with Rosemary Butter, plus Delicate Squash with Maple & Dijon

Pork Chops with Rosemary Butter, plus Delicate Squash with Maple & Dijon

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie was originally Veal Chops with Rosemary Butter, but I decided to use pork instead for something I like to call: “Pork Chops with Rosemary Butter.” If you want the original recipe, it is online here: Veal Chops with Rosemary Butter.

Now that we’ve got that intro out of the way, I’d also like to add that I am extremely excited for the International Food Bloggers Conference next week in Seattle and meeting up with a bunch of . . . → Read More: FFwD: Pork Chops with Rosemary Butter, plus Delicate Squash with Maple & Dijon

FFwD: Brown Sugar Squash and Brussels Sprouts en Papillote

Okay, I’ll admit it — I was a little skeptical about this French Fridays with Dorie. Not because of the brussels sprouts or the squash, because I really like both of those vegetables, but because they were steamed. Why steam vegetables, when you can roast them? Needless to say, I am not a huge fan of the steamed vegetables. But, I set my vegetable preparation beliefs aside and I made the recipe pretty much as written and well, I really liked this one.

Super Foods Friday#6: Feta and Pumpkin Casserole

title

Super Foods count here is three. Not too bad. This turned into a very successful experiment. jwa was a bit skeptical, as he is with all things that involve pumpkin. Although, once I told him I was using butternut squash as a substitute, he relaxed. He has some kind of weird pumpkin phobia that strikes in the Fall and doesn’t leave until Spring.

I changed this a bit from the original — I added olive oil, the sausage and the roux. I also used chicken broth in this version (mahahahaha, Vegetarian Times!) rendering it meat-laced and . . . → Read More: Super Foods Friday#6: Feta and Pumpkin Casserole
