My dearest friend Lauren has requested that I make something gluten free, but more specifically she has requested broccoli stuffed potatoes. I have elaborated upon the recipe she provided me and created something similar yet excitingly different with a secret ingredient! The best part of making this dish was when I asked my fiance what he thought was in the cheese sauce. He replied, “milk, cream, flour, butter…” He sure was surprised when I told him that none of those ingredients are in it! I hope you like it Lauren!
Buttercup squash is a popular winter squash with a sweet and nutty flavor and creamy texture. It is more closely related to sweet potatoes than pumpkins in taste. This recipe plays between tangy and sweet with a balsamic glaze atop the squash and mushrooms.
As Thanksgiving is rapidly approaching, bringing along with it To-Do lists that are out the door, it’s nice to make a dinner that is quick and cheap. My mom and I made this delicate Cheddar Cheese Souffle for dinner last night and ate the whole thing between four of us. The key to a souffle – no jumping in the kitchen.
What a busy week this has been! I feel like I’ve hardly had time to eat! Lucky for me I got to have dinner at my parents house this weekend where my mom and I made these Feta Couscous Cakes with Tomato Olive Salad. It was probably the first real meal I’ve had all week. This recipe makes 8 cakes.
For the past week I have been so excited about my birthday meal that I was drooling before I even walked into my parent’s house yesterday. I chose one of my most favorite dishes, Eggplant Parmesan. It is simply divine and I hardly ever get the chance to eat it. My mom and I cooked it for 8 people, with tons of extra, so feel free to halve the recipe for a smaller dinner party.
