It's not news to anyone that I love food. The weeks leading up to the wedding were the worst, Kyle and I basically ate take-out because we were so busy and scattered all of the time. I have been making up for lost time in my kitchen lately, and the other rooms are getting jealous. Here are a few items that we have been feasting on:
Veggie Soup-I made this soup once before, it was a recipe I found on Hello Giggles. I subbed the red pepper flakes for chili peppers, and it came out nice and spicy, but not so much so it was impossible to eat. I added a little cheese on top, and it was awesome sauce! This makes a GIANT batch, so I shall be eating it for the next week, but I am a soup-freak so I am not going to complain.
Kale Pasta- This may seem more of a summer dish, but after harvesting the last of the kale from the garden, I decided to try out another recipe I saw earlier this year on Hello Giggles. I really loved this pasta, and it was so easy to make! I honestly think next time I will use even more kale, because it's good for you, and it tastes really good in this pasta.
Spicy Goulash- One of my favorite comfort-food dishes! I used my usual goulash recipe, but instead of cayenne pepper, I added fresh chilli peppers from our garden. I added 3 of them, and it was hot! But, I love spicy food, so this was perfect for my crazy-ass.
Pesto Pizza- This was a very simple pizza, I used regular pizza crust from the store, and topped it with my own home-made pesto, tomatoes & chilli peppers from our garden, and some parmesan cheese. I tweaked my own pesto recipe by adding two cups of chopped kale to the mix, it came out amazing! I am going to have to remember to do that next year when I make up large batches of it.
Pumpkin Pie- I followed this recipe, however, I used yogurt instead of heavy whipping cream. I also did not have any nutmeg so I added a small scoop of Trader Joe's pumpkin spread to the mix. The first pie I made, I did not put the filing in the blender because I had pesto in it, and tried to blend it by hand-nope. This pie I made sure to blend and it came out perfect!
