Sweet Potato and Black Bean Soup

From fellow food blogger Sherri at “To Simply Inspire”, this recipe has done just that! A healthy and hearty soup for sure! If you need to cut some time, microwaving the sweet potatoes instead of baking them helps, as well as sautéing the pepper and onion directly into your pot before adding the beans and broth. If going olde school, use 4 cups of homemade veggie broth in lieu of the carton. I served with avocado, lime wedges, and a dollop of sour cream.

Easy Winter Holiday Brunch

This is the Anderson family holiday morning brunch. This is a start-to-finish brunch (including timing and a shopping list) that will give you plenty of time to watch the yule log with your family. It makes enough for 12 folks, and if you don’t have that many, it makes great leftovers!

Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai

This is an Anderson family favorite, perfect for when the spaghetti squash season rolls around. Soy sauce or tamari can substitute fish sauce if you want to keep it vegetarian. Tamarind paste can be substituted for rice wine vinegar as well, but the real deal is best. Give yourself time to drain the tofu and make the squash, but the pad thai itself is quick to make.

Hubbard Squash Pie

This recipe is my favorite way to conquer a whole Hubbard squash. It makes 2 pies (calling for 2 prepared pie crusts) and if there’s extra squash, a side dish. It takes about 2 1/2 hours including squash roasting and pie baking time, but it can be made in stages, so don’t feel like you need to do this whole thing start-to-finish in one wallop. If you have any puree left over, enjoy it with maple syrup and Amish Roll Butter!
