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.

Caramelized Onion, Prosciutto & Gorgonzola Omelet

by Chrissy

Omelets are pretty cool. Sometimes I try to trick myself into thinking that an egg scramble is just as good, but who would I be fooling.

My brother, Mike, was staying with me for the weekend so it was the perfect time to go all Fall “gourmet”. Him and I have the same love … Read more...

Lemon-Thyme Basil Pesto

by Chrissy

I’d like to think that we have a “no basil left behind” motto in our kitchen.

You see, one time last year, we went to TJ’s to grab a few key ingredients for a dinner that we were preparing later that night; there was none to be found. Organic and non-organic basil were both MIA. Obviously, they just had not been restocked, yet.

Obviously not. Let the panic begin. There is simply no suitable substitute for fresh basil. It’s … Read more...
