Pepita Spice Crusted Salmon and Butternut Squash Hash_LYK5

As you all read yesterday, Lauren and Chris are back! I had missed them so much, and was so glad to fetch them from the airport, upon their return from their romantic and adventurous European honeymoon.

Now back to the food.

Fish. I was craving fish. Probably for two weeks. Then I saw some nice wild, fresh caught salmon fillets, ready for me to take home. Score.

Mushroom Spinach Breakfast Sandwich_LYK1

There are some days that require a good, hearty meal to kick things off before the insanity ensues.

Although I’ve never gone wedding dress shopping for myself, I have done multiple rounds of bridesmaid dress shopping. I don’t know which one is more draining.

Savory Parmesan Crusted Pumpkin Biscuits w/ Spicy Coffee Butter

Lemon & Herb Roasted Spaghetti Squash

by Chrissy

Mmm Spaghetti squash. If this isn’t a squash that you have already tried, well, then you are in for a real treat!

But, don’t get confused. This is no replacement for spaghetti pasta. However, you can use it as a substitute, drenched in marinara and tossed with freshly grated Parm.

This season, we are especially loving the citrus & squash combo. It makes for quite the tasty side-dish. We know you will love it too.

When I lived in … Read more...
