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.

Butternut Squash Soup

Have I talked about how much I love my slow cooker?  I love my slow cooker.  I throw ingredients in it in the morning, or even the night before, turn it on and walk out the door!  When I come home from work, I only have to assemble a side dish or sometimes nothing at all.  I…

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…
