butternut squash soup with parmesan cheese crisps

My counter is full of squash.  Acorn.  Butternut.  Spaghetti.  All rolling around and teeter-tottering about like vegetable weeble wobbles. Squash was not meant to lay about on a countertop.  I  fear that they will eventually end up cracked and splattered on the floor before I find the time and energy to create a dish thatContinue reading “butternut squash soup with parmesan cheese crisps”

I had this for dinner and seriously contemplating eating the leftovers for breakfast. And by seriously contemplating…I mean I am dead set on it.  It’ll be good at 5am, right?  No?  Maybe?

Carrot Cake Cupcakes w/ Cream Cheese Frosting
