Sausage Stuffed Acorn Squash

I just love the fall when squash is in season and is inexpensive and easy to find. Just a few weeks ago I stocked up on some acorn squash, and wondered how to really cook it up nicely. In the past I had done some simple recipes with cinnamon and brown sugar, which were good, […]


‘Anything’ Scones

With the holidays just around the corner, I often find myself digging through the pantry for treats to serve surprise guests. Nothing fancy, but it’s nice to have a little something to go with a cup of coffee. Around Christmas, I can usually rustle up some frozen cookies, but in a dream world, the treats […]

However, there’s something fun about holiday-themed meals and treats, and […]

When Halloween approaches, I find myself equally excited about pumpkin seeds and candy corn. This is the first year it occurred to me to combine these two seasonal treats, and I can’t believe it took me this long. Roasty, salty, crunchy pumpkin seeds are a happy counterbalance to sweet, chewy candy corn. Throw in some […]
