Fall is here and so are all the delicious foods that come along with it. This Roasted Butternut Squash, Brussels Sprouts, and Dried Cranberries dish is one of the best fall recipes for entertaining. It’s an easy side that would be great for a get together with friends, or even for Thanksgiving. Although I used a squash from my garden, you can save time by buying the squash already cut, peeled, and cubed from the grocery store….
What’s the best way to enjoy a football Sunday? With chili! Although the Patriots lost, I was super happy because of how great this chili came out. This is the first time I’ve ever made a lightened up version of chili, and I can’t wait to make it again. Made with ground turkey, plenty of vegetables, and low sodium chicken broth this chili is definitely much healthier than your typical chili. The best part is, it has an incredible amount of flavor that you aren’t sacrificing deliciousness by lightening it up. I only simmered this chili for an hour. I like my veggies with a very slight crisp to them, however you can definitely cook it longer if you prefer softer veggies! For a vegetarian option, cook in vegetable broth and replace the turkey with double the amount of vegetables….

With all the health benefits of sweet potatoes (Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Fiber, to name a few), you really can’t go wrong eating these fries. Try them out and let me know how you like them!…
After spending the past few days in a food coma from Thanksgiving, it was time for something different to eat. I’ve had some ground pork in my freezer for the past few weeks, and since I haven’t been grocery shopping recently, decided to use it tonight. I was looking for something fairly quick and easy, with simple ingredients that I’d definitely have on hand. As an added bonus, I still had carrots from the garden in the fridge, so was super excited to add some of those to the rice. Although Pork Fried Rice is typically a side, I chose to make this as the main dish tonight. Overflowing with ground pork, this can certainly be a side, lunch, light dinner, or midnight snack….
