  • Creamy Butternut Squash Alla Vodka Pasta. Because Monday night is always better with a cozy pasta. I mean, right? This is just like classic alla vodka, but minus the tomato and plus roasted butternut squash. It's creamy, warming, and finished off with salty, crispy prosciutto bread crumbs. So. Good. And since it's Monday, that's all my brain has has to say...sharing the recipe on HBH today (linked in profile) AND making this over on my stories tonight too. Get at it. #eatingfortheinsta #f52grams #instayum #butternutsquash #pasta
  • It’s officially apple season and I’m so excited to be apart of @krogerco zero hunger | zero waste campaign. The Kroger family brands are making efforts across their stores to reduce waste and even something as simple as baking with “flawed” produce can help work towards a more sustainable future. Personally? I look for the flawed produce when creating new recipes. I love the character each “flaw” adds. You’d never know I used a few bruised apples to bake this apple cider pandowdy (an apple pie, but with a lot more of a “caramel” like sauce and a crust that is beyond perfect). It’s just as sweet and delicious as it looks. Find the recipe on HBH and make sure to shop @krogerco for seasonal produce. #sponsored #zerohungerzerowaste #apples
  • Instant Pot Broccoli Cheddar and Zucchini Soup. It’s cozy, but healthier than the average broccoli cheddar soup, easy, and so delicious.

Perfect Sunday night...but really any chilly night works. PS. it's better than Panera's. It's true. Slow cooker and stove top directions are on HBH (linked in profile). ..

  • Baked (extra crispy) Sweet Potato Parmesan Tater Tots. Because it's Sunday and Sunday requires all the snacks. These are some of the best --> sweet potatoes, parmesan cheese, butter, fresh herbs, plenty of flaky sea salt and black pepper. The secret? Rolling the mashed sweet potatoes in bread crumbs for a crispy on the outside, soft on the inside tater tot. Finish with a drizzle of herb butter. SO GOOD. Perfect fall appetizer, side dish, game-day snack, it all works. Shared the recipe on HBH this week - linked in profile. #eeeeeats #f52grams #sweetpotatoes #fallfood
