Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese + Link Party

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

So as I mentioned last week, October makes me crave comfort food big time.  Garlic mashed potatoes.  Cream of (blank) soups.  Pot roast.  Pumpkin bread.  The list goes on and on.

If I had to choose, if you really made me choose, I’d vote butternut squash as my favorite fall vegetable.  When paired with pasta, cream, and cheese, it’s the definition of comfort food.

Comfort Food Link Party Comin’ Up!

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

I realized I haven’t published a recipe in months and there’s really no excuse for that.  I prepared a lot of favorite dishes over the summer but never got around to photographing any of them.  I’ll just blame the general laziness of summer.  I made homemade garlic hummus and grilled artichokes with lemon aioli and other ‘sounds kinda fancy but really so simple’ dishes and I really do have to be better about sharing. 

So yesterday, I was craving one of my favorite comfort foods and I made it and I photographed it and oh my it was completely divine and satisfied my comfort food craving.  My taste buds were in heaven but my waistline is a little annoyed – there is an ongoing battle between them you know.

Now that fall has arrived I’m sure you’ve got a few great comfort food recipes to share so let’s have a party, mkay?   Next Tuesday, right here.

Bring your favorite comfort food recipe to the Link Party on Tuesday and then we’ll all take a nap afterward because that’s the whole point of making these recipes, right? 

Can’t wait to see what you cook up!
