What are we making this weekend? Pumpkin ricotta noodles! I have never been able to get a casserole to photograph well, but trust me when I tell you that this is a fall and winter staple around here. The dish is incredibly quick to put together and so delicious that C actually polished off a whole bowl (I’m still trying to increase their peanut butter and jelly sandwich/chicken nugget diet…alas, H wouldn’t touch it)! Link is here.

The instant pot love affair continues with miso risotto – made in under 20 minutes on a weeknight! Link to recipe here.

Current favorite soup with pre-cut organic butternut squash from Trader Joe’s. Just chop some apples and an onion, pour in broth, apple cider, and some spices, then slow cook: https://t.co/cXQRCQZgYhhttps://t.co/fK3q6uP8n7


Why hello there. It’s been a long time, huh?

it’s definitely spring in seattle, full of flowers (yay), memos (yuck!), studying for midterms (double yuck!), and spending time with friends in town from california (super yay!).

in lieu of posting a recipe this week, i’m passing along this link to mark bittman’s article about customizable soups. my dad emailed me this recipe awhile ago, and mike and i have been enjoying trying all kinds of different riffs on the recipes. we’ve even been trying to follow bittman’s suggestion that you really don’t need a recipe for soup (i know this idea isn’t revolutionary, but i rarely cook without one…).

i’ll be back with some recipes soon, but until then, try out the recipes from one and two years ago!

one year ago: chickpea noodle soup
two years ago: coconut cinnamon lime rice
