Butternut Brie Enchiladas

Butternut squash: the creamiest, dreamiest, most delicious food fall has bestowed upon us. Thought pumpkin was your favorite? You must have never tasted butternut squash. Although I love pumpkin as much as the next person living in a seasonal climate, I have to admit that butternut squash tops it. What could be more delicious than…

Apple (Veggie) Sausage Oats

Not going to lie…these kind of look like dog food. But in terms of dog food, these oats would be prime steak—this porridge is GOOD! Sweet, salty, apple-y and full of spice and autumn flavors. It’s fall in a bowl. Think a candle smoldering in the windowsill, slow-cooked apples filling your grandmother’s kitchen with the…

Apple Butter Brie Grilled Cheese

Why are my grilled cheese photos never as good as the grilled cheese itself? If the picture isn’t very good, I know people will be less likely to make it, so I usually don’t post it, but this one was special. When I tried a bite of this sandwich, I knew I could never top…

Autumn Stuffed Acorn Squash

The winter squash have arrived! I was about to leave the farmer’s market when I remembered the beautiful squash I had seen earlier, and I rushed back in to grab a cute little butternut and this humongous acorn squash. When I bought a smaller one earlier in the season, the farmer told me to roast…

Apple Cider Oats

Apple cider, aka ambrosia, aka elixir of life, aka the stuff that I could chug a full gallon of—why isn’t there an edible form? You can eat an apple…but then you miss out on all those cozy spices. You can bake a cake…but then it doesn’t quite warm you like a steaming mug of cider…

Smoky Autumn Chipotle Stuffed Sweet Potato

Guess what? IT’S SWEET POTATO SEASON! If I could eat three foods for the rest of my life, they would be oatmeal, bread, and sweet potatoes (mmm, carbs!) For carbs, though, sweet potatoes are pretty fabulous. Did you know that there are 2.1 grams of protein in a cup of sweet potato? Add some black…

Salted Rosemary Brownie Batter Oats

I was lucky this week: I had an extra cooked sweet potato! Why am I getting so excited over a sweet potato, you ask? If you’ve never added a sweet potato to oatmeal, take my word for it and do it as soon as you can muster the patience to bake one (I do not…

Fig-onzola Pumpkin Grilled Cheese

Alright, guys—this is good stuff. Fresh figs, creamy pumpkin, salty Gorgonzola, and spicy arugula all nestle between two slices of crispy, crusty bread. This is the kind of grilled cheese you crave on those first few chilly fall evenings, when the temperatures start to drop and all that can warm you is a bowl of…

Creamy Fig + Goat Cheese Gnocchi

Dear everyone who thinks I am a miracle perfect cook, I am still learning. Every time I cook, I learn something new. Here is a sneak peak into my thoughts while browsing the farmer’s market: What is that thing? It kinda looks like a sweet potato, I’ll cook it that way…did someone on Pinterest pair…

Caramelized Fig Grilled Cheese

My love of grilled cheeses has met my love of figs—voila! It’s a celebration of early autumn in a sandwich: caramelized figs and onions with a hint of thyme, layered with seasonal arugula, hearty gruyere, and creamy Brie, all enclosed between two slices of crispy toasted bread. Best hot off the skillet. This is the…
