There was a time when I shied away from making polenta at home.
Hi friends! Happy Election Day. Hope ya’ll voted and stuff. It’s getting colder out around here, rainy and cold and dark. Nick lovingly describes this time of year as the time when we eat a lot of bright orange meals. I can’t help it, I love me some squash (and sweet potato and carrots and… you get the point). This Brown Rice Congee with Roasted Red Kuri Squash does not disappoint. If you’ve never had congee before, I highly recommend. It’s literally comfort in a bowl.
Flowering Kale Stir Fry… it just rolls off the tip of the tongue, doesn’t it? When I found some gorgeous flowering kale at the farmers market I knew I had to put it to good use. And boy was it tasty!
I’ve had many a granola in my day. The boxed stuff, the bagged stuff, the bulk section stuff, you name it. So, when I say this is the best method I’ve found thus far for cooking it at home – to the tastes I love, to the sweetness level I prefer – I hope you believe me! And if you’re like me, you get intense joy when you find a recipe you want to make and you do a quick spot check of your pantry and JUST.LIKE.THAT, it’s all there and you can make it without even schlepping to the store.
This is that granola, friends. SCORE!
Sometimes you just need a quick and easy meal to throw together at the end of a long and busy workday. This is that meal you guys! Better yet — it’s made almost completely from pantry staples. Wahoo!
