Wild Mushroom and Gruyere Tart

Quick side note for all you living in Austin right now: the new recycling program has begun! Woo hoo! There is no longer a need to sort your recyclables, you can recycle plastics #1-7 (it used to be only #1-2), AND you can recycle cereal boxes! Finally, Austin is stepping up to the plate on […]

Butternut Squash Soup with Cider Cream

I love fall food. It’s warm, it’s rich, it’s filling and it is filled with the holidays. Butternut squash is one of those vegetables that I just discovered last fall (which is sad, I know) when I added it to Roasted Butternut Squash and Bacon Pasta (which I need to make again because it was […]

Zucchini + Goat Cheese = Love

We had a successful little dinner party last night and I will be progressively posting the recipes that I tried out on everyone since they were all pretty delicious. These little tarts were awesome and really easy to make. Gotta love a recipe where you don’t have to make the pie crust from scratch! It’s […]
