Spaghetti Squash Alfredo with Pancetta

Spaghetti Squash Recipe

The produce section in the grocery store is all about winter squash this time of the year. One of my absolute favorite winter squashes is the spaghetti squash. It's so fun to eat with its delicious spaghetti-like strings and its mild, slightly nutty taste.

Bacon and Pretzel Cracker Coated Pork Chops

Bacon and Pretzel Coated Pork Chops makes good use for a box of half eaten crackers.

What do you do when you have leftover pretzel crackers (you know the ones; pretzel on one side and cracker on the other) in the pantry, you've cooked the entire package of bacon but only needed half of it and you have pork chops thawing for dinner? You make these Bacon and Pretzel Cracker Coated Pork Chops. That's what. If necessity is the mother of invention, then leftovers are surly the stepmother!!

So, to honor one of my favorite ingredients of all time (i.e. pasta), I'm excited to share this Orecchiette with Meat Sauce with you. This recipe is super simple to make, and the flavors are just incredible.  The night I made this pasta for my family it was met some enthusiastic two thumbs from everyone there, including me :)

Midwestern Style LowCountry Boil

A little over a month ago my husband and I hosted our first ever Low country boil party in our backyard. It wasn't something I was planning on blogging about so I never took specific notes on what I'd used as far as ingredients, or how much. That being said; I thought you still might enjoy seeing our photos and hearing of our experience (to the best of my recollection) in case you ever want to host your own Low country boil.

Apple Cinnamon Whole Wheat Bagels with Raisins #TwelveLoaves

Apple Cinnamon Whole Wheat Bagels with Raisins

What I really appreciate about being a member of the #TwelveLoaves baking group is that they encourage creativity. As long as you use the featured ingredient for the month (this month, it's apples) you get to let loose and have fun creating. I decided I'd try my hand at making these Apple Cinnamon Whole Wheat Bagels with Raisins (but those are optional). I'm very pleased with how they turned out as far as flavor goes. As far as looks, maybe not so much! LOL

Farro and Onion Casserole

Farro and Onion Casserole with Gruyere and Parmesan cheese.

I'm going to get this admission out of the way, right out of the gate. I got this recipe for Farro and Onion Casserole from Food Network Magazine, the November 2013 edition, and I followed it exactly to the letter as far as which ingredients I used. The only thing I did switch up were the quantities. Oh, and I changed the name. I don't claim that this recipe is mine (I only do that when they are), and I'm sharing it with you here on my blog because if you're not a subscriber to Food Network Magazine, or don't purchase it at the store you probably missed seeing it, and you really need to know about this recipe because it's AHHH-mazing!!!

Roasted Parsnips and Carrots w/ Maple Syrup and Cardamom #SundaySupper - Unprocessed Foods

Parsnips and Carrots are roasted to sweet perfection and then drizzled with pure maple syrup and sprinkled with sweet and spicy cardamom.

Unprocessed foods. What does that term mean exactly? Well, in a nutshell it means nothing that comes in a box, can or package that sits on the grocery store shelf for an extended period of time. Nothing that's been packaged by manufacturers with all sorts of shelf stabilizers, additives, colors and fragrances added. Figure it this way; if you've seen it on a TV commercial, odds are, it's not unprocessed, and it's not something you or your family should be eating in your diet on a regular basis.

Football French Bread (aka Robert May's historical 1660 French Bread)

Football French Bread is perfect for any game day celebration.

It's ironic that I'm posting this recipe for Football French Bread the day after our team, the Chicago Bears lost (with the home field advantage) to our arch rivals, the Green Bay Packers. UGH! We'll never hear the end of it, you can be sure...but never mind all that! That's hardly important!
