Do you ever get obsessed with a certain food / recipe? I go through phases where I eat the same thing literally every day until I’m sick of it. For awhile, it was these pancakes (one of my favorite solo dinner meals!) And right now, it is this Mango Strawberry Smoothie. I have found my perfect smoothie combo! Frozen mangos, fresh strawberries, light vanilla yogurt, and pineapple-coconut water. Love love love it.   The flavor is amazing, and it is so refreshing.  I’m absolutely obsessed!

Stuffed Mushrooms are such a classic party food. They are the perfect passed appetizer – they look pretty on a platter, can be eaten in one bite, and are absolutely delicious! So I thought why wait for a party to make stuffed mushrooms? Why not just make a platter of them for TheBetterHalf and myself? And that’s exactly what I did tonight!

TGIF! After our delicious birthday dinner last night, TheBetterHalf and I are just chilling at home tonight and giving our stomachs (and our wallet) a break! But I still wanted to whip up something delicious and special for us to enjoy and these stuffed mushrooms were the perfect thing. Bonus – they are SO easy to prepare! Plus, they are gluten free thanks to cracker crumbs made from Breton gluten free crackers!

The end of the month is rapidly approaching, which means it is time for Mystery Dish! Today’s recipe is a little bit different than what I usually make. I am recently obsessed with Indian food and curry, and so I was very excited to try a recipe using curry! I hadn’t really eaten Indian food until about 2 years ago. Once I tried it though, I was hooked. The spices used are so flavorful and rich and delicious.

The title of this dish is a mouthful – Kabocha Squash Curry with Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Farro – but I couldn’t leave any of the ingredients out of the name! It is surprisingly simple to make, and is super healthy. This is a great “starter” dish for those who are new to curry and Indian food (like me!)…
