Roasted Butternut Squash Casserole

Monday, November 15, 2010

23 Comments

I love nothing more than a creamy, cheesy casserole. When you strike the right balance between healthy vegetables and cheesy sauce it is a thing of beauty.  Butternut squash is my favorite winter squash.  With a mild, slightly sweet flavor it is perfect for roasting, blending into soups, and baking into casseroles.  The mild flavor […]

Cinnamon Crepes with Spiced Pumpkin Mousse and Graham Crumble

When Casey from Tastestopping approached me about participating in the November Kitchen Play event, how could I say no? She asked me to deconstruct the classic pumpkin pie using Libby’s 100% Pure Pumpkin from Nestlé Kitchens*.  Canned pumpkin is a very versatile ingredient and is a pantry staple for me year round.  It can stand […]

I am exhausted. Project Food Blog has been, and continues to be, intense, I’ve had friends in from out of the country, I have four family birthdays coming up, and I am still working three part-time jobs.  On top of it all looms the specter of Thanksgiving and all the preparation that entails.  I am […]

Bacon Dressed Green Beans

I have the secret for making EVERY vegetable, as long as you are a carnivore, taste better. It is not a very well kept secret, since EVERYONE knows about bacon.  This recipe started out as green bean bundles from a cookbook I borrowed from my mother.  The beans were blanched then slow roasted which left […]

Crab Cake Dip

I am not a big fan of crab in a general sense.  In fact I am not a fan of shellfish overall. That said, I love, and have always loved, crab cakes.  I like the mix of flavors, the different textures, and I find the creaminess of the crab mixture hard to resist.  So, in […]

Spiced Chocolate Crinkles

There is something magic about a soft, chewy chocolate cookie. Crinkle cookies are an attractive addition to any platter of cookies.  I have a recipe that was given to me by a friend long ago which is lovely on its own, but you know me and my propensity to tinker.  Inspired by my Chocolate Spice […]

Fruit Cake

Wait!  Before you hit the back button just hear me out. I know fruit cake gets a bad rap, and most of the time it is well deserved.  Be it the candied citron, the fluorescent cherries, or insipidly sweet cake, most fruit cake is in fact very bad.  Terrible even.  I’m still asking you to […]

Butter Croissants

Ready for something a tad more advanced?  It takes time to make, but it is SO worth it. I fell in love with croissant making a few semesters ago in my Laminated Dough class.  Bread making is among my favorite things to do in the kitchen, but making laminated doughs (doughs with butter sandwiched between […]
