Creamy Pumpkin Fiesta Chicken Soup #pumpkinweek

*Disclosure: I received product to sample from ­­­­Cabot Cheese.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Are you ready for another great pumpkin recipe? 

Today’s recipe is sponsored by Cabot Cheese.

I’ve worked with Cabot in the past and they always have a wonderful selection of cheeses and all thing dairy!

Connect with them here:

Today I decided to go the savory route.

Have you ever noticed that, even when pumpkin is being used as a savory ingredient (especially in soup) that cinnamon and sugar still end up being involved?

I can’t handle stuff like that – it is just too much for my palate to comprehend!

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls #pumpkinweek

*Disclosure: I received product to sample from ­­­­­Dixie Crystals.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Today’s delicious recipe is sponsored by Dixie Crystals

Dixie Crystals is always a generous sponsor, so with lots of sugar on hand, I couldn’t not bake something!  So, when my boss asked for volunteers to bring breakfast to our beginning of the year meetings, I jumped on the opportunity!

This also, sadly, means that I have some rushed on-the-way-out-the-door and cell phone pictures of the finished product, but suffice to say that the still-warm pumpkin cinnamon rolls were enough for some co-workers to declare me a hero for bringing them!

These rolls have two baking options, depending on your level of morning perkiness.

You may want to get up early and make these rolls with a smile on your face for your adoring family.

Argentinian Chimichurri Sauce #EatTheWorld

It’s time for this month’s Eat the World recipe challenge and we’re heading to Argentina!

As I was researching, I was surprised to find out that there are quite a few Italian influences in the cooking – yet with even more cheese than we add in the US!

As I kept looking, I was reminded that my favorite wine comes from Argentina: Malbec!  I sadly did not have any Malbec on hand when I made my recipe, because it would have been a great addition to the meal!

Beer Brats with Caramelized Onions


It’s National Beer Day!

Ok confession time.

I’m way more of a wine drinker than a beer drinker.

However, I do love to cook with beer, especially beers brats – I don’t make them any other way!

I shared my fantastic recipe for Bacon Wrapped Beer Brats a couple years ago – and they’re super delicious, but labor intensive and Hibs doesn’t like all the bacon flare ups on the grill.  So I typically simplify the process and make beer brats with just 4 ingredients!

Green Beans Gratinéed with Cheese Sauce (Haricots Verts Gratinés, à la Mornay) #FantasticalFoodFight

Well, well, well, it’s French food again today!

It’s been a French-inspired summer!  First, I made Ratatouille Bake for Bastille Day, the Fougasse for Eat the World, and now Green Beans au Gratin for Julia Child’s Birthday - this month's Fantastical Food Fight Challenge!

Last year, for Julia’s birthday, I read Julie and Julia and was tremendously disappointed (Julia Child is amazing while Julie what’s her face the blogger was insipid and annoying).  I ended up sharing a recipe for puff pastry (which doesn’t actually appear in the book) because I was so underwhelmed by the book.
