Roasted Kabocha Orange Squash

So…I think there was something big going on in the last week and I never got around to posting about this delicious squash.  Something about an election?  Thank goodness that’s over! Last year I “discovered” delicata squash and I’ve been keeping an eye out for it at the market, but no luck so far.  Time… Continue reading Roasted Kabocha Orange Squash

Sunny Summer Squash Casserole

Summer is finally starting to wind down, and thank goodness for that! I have to apologize for neglecting the blog for so long. For the most part, cooking this summer has been mostly repeats of favorites, coupled with a lack of enthusiasm for standing in a hot kitchen. Even grilling has gone by the wayside,… Continue reading Sunny Summer Squash Casserole

Summer Squash Hummus (Bean-less, Gluten-free)

I find myself with a surplus of white, patty pan squash.  I have roasted it, baked it in a casserole, and eaten it sliced and sauteed in butter.  It’s all good – but I know there are gardeners (and cooks) out there that are looking for more things to do with their bounty of summer… Continue reading Summer Squash Hummus (Bean-less, Gluten-free)

Paprika-Cumin Marinated Sirloin Steak and Medley of Roasted Squash

Adapted from How to Cook Meat Last week we splurged and ordered 40 pounds of grass-fed, grass-finished Angus beef for the freezer.  If you recall, I had to do a major freezer clean-out to accommodate the giant beef back ribs I had previously ordered.  I don’t know how, but we managed to squeeze almost all… Continue reading Paprika-Cumin Marinated Sirloin Steak and Medley of Roasted Squash

Stuffed Squash (1&8-ball)

There’s a mini-farmers’ market at one of our favorite spots, Community Q BBQ in Decatur, Georgia.  When we stopped by on Saturday, they had these lovely 1 & 8-ball squash that I have never seen before.  They are plump and round and fit in the palm of your hand.  We picked up two of these,… Continue reading Stuffed Squash (1&8-ball)
