Wine Down Wednesday – Caramelized Onion, Butternut Squash, Mushroom and Thyme Pizza with Garlic Chive Pesto with Dr Hermann Riesling and Organic Pares Balta Penedes Garnatxa Cabernet 1

Super Sexy Sweet Potato, Butternut and Cabbage Soup

Can I just ask whose idea was it to take a perfectly good foot and decide that the heel of it needed to be four inches taller?  In fact, the toes are too wide. Let’s stuff them into a pointy shape like a gnome hat and call it fashion. Furthermore, why is it that we continue […]

Butternut Squash and Chickpea Salad with Tahini Dressing 6

Happy Thursday blogger friends!  I have good news and bad news.  The good news is this butternut squash recipe.  The bad news (for me) is that my beloved camera broke again (I can’t blame Canon though due to the unfortunate incident where it bumped the side of the car).
