This super simple side dish can be enjoyed all year long. When I first looked at the finished product, it reminded me of fall; perhaps it was the squash or maybe it was the autumn-like colors that reminded me of the fall foliage. Either way, it brings in an abundance of earthy flavors with a […]

Carrots are one of those vegetables that taste really good with some sort of sweet glaze. This recipe is sweet and buttery with a little spice from the ginger and turmeric. Roasting veggies brings out a natural sweetness and carmelizes and sugars already present so that element is enough for me on most days. However, […]

Elote (eh-LO-tay) is a traditional Mexican street corn. This version is one that stems from the original but in a deconstructed way. Such a fun twist on the original that came about by happenstance. These were meant to be corn fritters but they didn’t reach their full potential, or did they?!?! Originally when I put […]

This may just be the easiest recipe you make for Thanksgiving. All you have to do is put everything in a pot and cook it slowly on the stovetop. If you have fresh ginger you can use that for an extra boost of flavor. If not, ground ginger works well also. Don’t forget to remove […]
