A Native-Inspired Butternut Squash Salsa

A Native-Inspired Butternut Squash Salsa I’ve written a bit about salsas, and butternut squash, too. But never would I have thought about combining the two.

I highly recommend you visit if you can. I also highly recommend you try their salsas,...

Making Tartar Sauce and Cooking for a Toddler

Making Tartar Sauce and Cooking for a Toddler In an ideal world your toddler would eat what you eat for dinner. I make a nice roasted chicken thinking, “yea, she’ll love this.” But nope.

I made two. Apples in cinnamon sauce and blended strawberries made for a fruity...

What To Do With All That Mango Chutney

What To Do With All That Mango Chutney I bought a jar of mango chutney to make a curry cream for chicken soup a couple months back (it was wonderful). The recipe called for 1/4 cup mango chutney, which left me with quite a bit of leftover. What to do? Turns out there’s a lot you can do.         Brie and Mango Chutney Rolls To make this delicious side dish, get a can of your regular ol’ Pillsbury biscuits. Peel...
