Pork Green Chile

It is officially soup season. The tops of the mountains have had a dusting of snow for some time now, my windshield is frosted over each morning and I’ve busted out the crock pot. I love making soup; there is so much room for creativity and experimentation. It is also a great way to use up leftover groceries that may be going bad.

French Bread

Fall is in the air in Summit County. The aspens are lit up like fire across the mountains, the mornings are brisk and the tourists have gone home for the summer. Life is good. I always say that I don’t want summer to end, but am pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoy autumn. As hard as it is to say during our amazing summers in Colorado, I really love all the seasons- especially right as they are changing. There is a cozy feeling about autumn that makes me want to bake- warm, fluffy bread.

These Fish N Chips are literally the best I have ever had- even compared to restaurants!- and so easy to make!

Dandelion Pumpkin Seed Pesto

This summer has been filled with delicious veggies from local farms! A while back, I picked up a bunch of dandelion greens. I had heard raves about their health benefits, but also knew they would be bitter. I was determined to find a unique way to put my dandelion greens to use when I found a recipe on The Kitchn for a Dandelion Pumpkin Seed Pesto.
