Brown Butter Rice Krispies Treats

I really can’t remember the last time I had a rice krispie treat. They are such a childhood favorite, but now I just never think about making them, and I don’t really come across them very often in bakeries and coffee shops. I was flipping through the Flour cookbook the other night and saw a recipe for brown butter rice krispies treats. Um, yum! I knew I had to try them!…

Butternut Squash Potstickers with Sriracha Ginger Dipping Sauce

Butternut Squash Potstickers | ChezCateyLou.com

I am a huge fan of butternut squash. I get so excited when I see it popping up all over markets and on restaurant menus in the fall.  I like to buy the packages of precut cubes.  It just seems much safer to me…every time I take the giant chef’s knife to a whole butternut squash I come perilously close to losing a finger.

Usually we just roast our butternut squash – toss it in some olive oil, salt and pepper and roast for 20 mins at 400 degrees.  Simple and delicious.  But I decided to branch out with my latest butternut squash purchase and make potstickers.  Wow.  Amazing.  New favorite recipe!  This was my first time making potstickers and I have to say, I was pretty darn proud of myself. Look at these beauties! I was pretty much dancing around the apartment when they were finished. …

Soup season is officially here again! I love to eat soup all year round, but I definitely take a break from making it in the warmer months. Who wants to stand over a hot stove for an hour when it is 80 degrees outside? But now that fall is here and the temperatures are dropping, it is time to get back on the soup making bandwagon!  First up this season for me is Creamy Tomato Orzo soup made with Greek Yogurt!  It is so rich and creamy, but you don’t have to feel guilty eating it because the creaminess comes from yogurt, not cream!   …
