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.”
after a super fun whirlwind weekend in LA that included disneyland, seeing both of our sisters and their significant others, helping prep a lot of delicious food for a party, and a surprise proposal (we are so excited for you, l & j, and we were so happy to be there with you for the momentous occasion!), we needed to plan a couple quick, healthy weeknight meals. and, of course, we thought about this meal.
