Twice Baked, Stuffed Potatoes

This is another Matty Matheson inspired recipe.  Have you guys looked him up yet??!  Anyway, they came out totally bangin’ and I can’t wait to make these again.  They weren’t too labor-intensive, but they do take some time to cook, so definitely make sure you work that into your schedule Twice Baked, Stuffed Potatoes Ingredients:…

Butternut Squash Mash

This is a really great side dish and I was actually surprised with how this came out.  I literally treated the butternut squash like it was potatoes and also added some of my favorite ingredients.  I get tired of roasting the squash or having it in soup.  Why not get a little creative? Butternut Squash…

Cauliflower Mash with Goat Cheese

Cauliflower mashed “potatoes” has been pretty hot for the past couple of years. I was never particularly a fan, but we jazzed it up a bit and I hope you guys try this recipe. It definitely doesn’t taste like mashed potatoes to me, but it definitely has the consistency. Put all different ingredients in it…

Gluten Free Spaetzle

My husband absolutely loves German food- it’s part of his heritage.  I also have a bit more than a drop of German in me, but I tend to gravitate more towards Italian foods.  However, since it is October, he felt we needed to be reminded of our German roots and we threw a little “German…

Roasted Carrots Gastrique

This recipe is totally and completely inspired by Matty Matheson from his Thanksgiving episode on YouTube.  If you’ve never heard of this guy, definitely check out my links.  He is absolutely hilarious and a great chef.  He’s just a real person, which I think makes him extremely likable.  He only has a few videos on YouTube…

Grilled, Stuffed Portobellos

This is a side you can really get creative with.  Portobellos are great building blocks if you are trying to avoid carbs- you can make mini pizzas!  Portobellos go great with almost any flavor, so feel free to try different combos.  You’ll figure out what you love the most and it’s a really easy staple…

Goat Cheese Asparagus Quinoa Salad

This picture does not do this recipe justice.  It is super simple, super savory and super creamy.  If you don’t eat meat, this is a great dish for any occasion.  Otherwise, this easy side would go great with any other meal with these flavors- grilled or baked chicken, beef, etc.  I love goat cheese and…

German Sauerbraten, Potato Pancakes and Cabbage

May isn’t really time for Oktoberfest, but my husband craves German food on a daily basis.  His roots are German and this kind of food is his “soul food.”  This is a recipe that has been passed down, translated and used by several generations in his family.  I’m now passing it down to you. Be…

Homemade Potato Pancakes

My husband made these potato pancakes from scratch, using this recipe.  I definitely recommend it.  I was really impressed by the taste and texture- and he said they were relatively easy!  He modified it to make it gluten free. We paired it with our homemade German Sauerbraten, red cabbage and sauerkraut.  You’ll have to wait…

Patatas Bravas

I’m a big fan of Club W.  If you haven’t heard of it, but you like wine, you should definitely look it up.  I’ve been with them since they first started and I’ve never received one bad bottle of wine. They always send these recipe cards with their wine and I’ve never tried them.  Either…

Spaghetti Squash

If you’ve never made spaghetti squash, you need to try it.  It’s a super easy alternative to spaghetti.  However, I have to warn you- in no way will this taste like or mimic the texture of pasta.  If anyone is trying to sell you that spaghetti squash can 100% replace pasta, they’re lying to you…
