Squash Fries

Posted on December 12, 2008

The other day, I noticed that I had 2 butternut squash sitting in my kitchen, waiting to be cooked.  The first I turned into butternut squash soup.

I wanted to be a bit more creative with the second one, so I figured I’d make fries out of them.  The boys must have eaten an entire 3 pound squash worth of oven fries.  They chowed on them all afternoon and then asked for more.  I ate quite a few myself, to me […]

Acorn Squash with Cranberry Apple Stuffing

Posted on October 10, 2008

Some days I need a little inspiration. I knew that I would be baking squash for our Shabbat dinner tonight. And I knew it would have some delicious dried cranberries in it. I just wasn’t entirely sure what form it would all take.

I looked around on the internet for a bit and saw this scrumptious looking recipe for a Southern style baked acorn squash and was on my way!

Butternut Squash Latkes

Healthy, gluten free, potato free latke recipe for Hanukkah.

Hanukkah is a day away and that means only one thing: fried food! Lots of it. Yum. I love a good crispy latke, or just about anything fried for that matter.

Below is my favorite recipe for latkes. I have been making these gluten-free latkes for 5 plus years and my family still rejoices each Hanukkah when I serve them.

Kale with Gomasio

Posted on November 29, 2007

I’ve been laying low since Thanksgiving, cleaning my house with abandon, giving away everything the boys and I don’t use. That said, in between sorting stuff and testing desserts for the upcoming holidays, I’ve been relying on some staple seasonal vegetable dishes to take me through the dark season.

This is an easy, family favorite. Just steam the kale and sprinkle with gomasio.

Squash “Pie”

Posted on November 21, 2007

This dish is really more of a soufflé, though in my house it has come to be known as the cherished “Squash Pie.” This morning my dear friend Amado called looking for this recipe for his Thanksgiving feast.
