YUM…I just love recycling food into other options…like roasting vegetables and making them into a frittata with roasted vegetables!…
The fall brings out many rooted vegetables like delicata squash, spaghetti squash, acorn and so on. While some of these squashes you can find year round, when they are in season there is nothing better!
A homemade frittata is one of the simplest things to make and allows you to take advantage of the vegetables that are in season. Here is my recipe for a squash blossom frittata.
Let’s face it everyone has an amazing banana bread recipe, you know the one that all your friends ask you to make, it may or may not have chocolate chips in it and it usually has lots of oil in it making super moist.
I know squash had always been more of a fall vegetable but today you can get squash all year round and I just love it! Last year I was experimenting with a new gadget that I purchased, the spiralizer and made a zucchini (squash) and mushroom side dish using the spiralizer and I loved that dish. I made the zucchini (squash) with mushrooms on the stove top.
With super bowl just a few weeks away, I wanted to continue with sharing some of my favorite appetizer recipes. This recipe for turkey meatballs as appetizers is a new recipe for me as I was preparing for a cooking class in which we published in the catalog for meatball poppers and we had no idea what that meant at the time.
What are spiced pretzels you might ask…well let me tell you, spiced pretzels are the most addicting snack food you can have and with super bowl Sunday right around the corner, I figured it was time to share this little treasure of a recipe.
Do you know what fennel is? I grew up eating fennel so it was not foreign for me to see it on the table or for us to just snack on it and I always loved the flavor of fennel. That being said, 5+ years ago most of my friends stayed away from fennel, even my ex husband was not a fan of it…so I had to get sneaky on adding it to my recipes.
When I was first introduced to baked figs with honey and cinnamon I thought I had died and gone to heaven…they were that good! I was in a restaurant and the baked figs were served on top of vanilla ice cream, as simple as this sounds, it was so amazing I asked the owner of the restaurant how she made them and she was kind enough to give me the basics.
I recently had some friends over for a dinner party where we made a few appetizers, including the apricot appetizer I blogged a few weeks back, some pasta and we finished it off with these amazing baked figs. Everyone loved the whole meal but even still to this day, my friend Bela will bring up the baked figs so I thought it was worthy of posting the recipe.
For this recipe you have to use fresh figs, not dried. Wash the figs, slice them in half and place in a baking pan
top with honey and cinnamon
bake for 30 minutes or until soft (I flipped mine 1/2 way through cooking)
place 3 pieces on a scoop of ice cream, preferably while hot, sprinkle a little sliced almonds on top and serve
Sometimes the simplest things are the best tasting. This is truly an amazing dessert that your friends will talk about long after the meal, just like my friend Bela. Let me know what you think of this?
