aaaand that was another long hiatus…but i’m back! and we’re moved into our new house! it’s been a whirlwind to move in, get unpacked, clean the old place, and figure out how to spread our furniture from our old (tiny) one bedroom apartment across the new place.
so that was a rather long blogging hiatus, eh? never fear, dear readers, as i have been cooking up a storm in the past month. which means i have a ton of recipes stored up and ready to share with you!
i’m not quite sure how it’s already thanksgiving – i mean seriously, where did november go? i know most of you are probably gearing up for the big day, but i wanted to drop in and share this delicious squash recipe with you, as promised. we are absolutely in love with delicata squash this year, because: a) you don’t have to peel it; b) it roasts faster than most other squash; and c) i don’t feel like i’m going to lose a finger while chopping it.
with the onset of the change to standard time, i learned two things: 1) it is impossible to make dinner after work in enough time to capture any real day light; and 2) stuffed squash does not photograph well. i realize that i have been blogging for five years, so i should know both of these things by now. but i honestly feel like i forget how quickly it gets dark every year.

i often joke with mike that if i started another blog, it would be called the lazy chef. because even though i love to cook and bake, i cut corners whenever possible. i try to use less bowls, reduce the number of steps, measure things loosely, and never, ever sift my flour. so when one of my close friends suggested i make this amazing meal, i looked at the recipe, saw the number of hours it takes to cook, and thought: “there’s no way i’m making this. ever.”
