So I won’t lie, this wasn’t an easy thing to make. But if you want a fun challenge with a very tasty reward these are worth a try. They are in no way a healthy treat, but hey we all need a little naughty dessert treats every once in a while.
There is something about butternut squash that is just perfect for cold days. It is an incredibly warm and filling squash and with it being such a rich source of vitamins, fiber, potassium and other things wonderful for your body, it is no wonder that this buttery goodness is the most popular squash. This particular recipe I have been preparing for 6 years now and it has now become a staple in the Hunter house for winter. It is perfect for cold days and also for days when someone is feeling under the weather.
I finally did it! I have been wanting to make a risotto for a long time now but had been put off by it because I was nervous that it would be a bit too hard. I will say this, risotto isn’t hard to make, it just takes a bit more effort so don’t choose to make it unless you can focus on it. And it is so creamy and delicious, I am looking forward to the next time I can make it. I think next time I might do chicken and mushroom risotto. Yum yum! Oh dear I have made myself hungry again.
Well the weather is finally changing, we woke up to slightly frosted car windows and a cold, blustery day. It’s days like this that a nice warm soup does the body good. It is on days like this that I look to one of my mom’s standard recipes that I had growing up, Corn Chowder, as my cure for the cold weather. What I love about this recipe is that is that it is a soup that is filling and warms you up, and it is extremely easy to make and uses ingredients that you are likely to have on hand. So if you need a soup to warm you up, that takes less then 20 minutes to put together, using easily accessible ingredients then give my mom a big kiss thank you and give this a try.
So it is that time of year when the brussel sprouts are in season and I have one happy husband. I have said it before but I am blessed with a husband that absolutely loves brussel sprouts. Which is great because I know that I can be adventurous with my preparation of these little cabbages and know that my husband will eat it.
Last time I talked about brussel sprouts I said that I had been stuck in a cooking rut with this little green veggie. But since then I have tried new ways to prepare them that have opened my eyes to a whole new world of dishes that I would have never before thought of. This recipe was inspired by an article from Delish.com. Once again I found a recipe that sounded great but after reading it I noticed that, in my opinion, the instructions given weren’t going to yield a result that I would be pleased with. So I took the recipe and prepared it in my own way, altering the parts that I felt wouldn’t work. And I am happy to say that it turned out a real winner. This is definitely one to repeat.
