Roasted Sweet Potato Salad with Candied Walnuts and Sage Vinaigrette

Your favorite fall flavors now come in a healthy salad with roasted sweet potatoes, dried cherries, candied walnuts, and a sage balsamic vinaigrette.

By now I am sure most of you have seen the new Star Wars trailer. If not, do it now. I may have freaked out just a little bit when I saw it and now already cannot wait for next Christmas – the finale of Mockingjay and new Star Wars! But there are exciting movies to see this year as well. I already saw Mockingjay Part 1 and up next is the finale of the Hobbit. The winter holidays rock, don’t they? To make up for the colder temperatures we get stuffed with amazing food, decorate cookies, see pretty lights, and get to snuggle in front of a cozy fire and/or movie.

But today’s recipe is not for decorated cookies or even a hot beverage to drink while enjoying wintry activities. It does have some of those comforting flavors that come out this time of year though and shockingly enough it is in the form of a salad. Roasted sweet potatoes are tossed in a mixed greens salad with dried cherries, candied walnuts, and a sage vinaigrette. I got to bust out my white balsamic vinegar for this vinaigrette but you could definitely use regular if you cannot find white. Different color, same taste.

Recently my friends hosted a chili cook off and obviously I participated. Normally I stick to my dad’s tried and true chili (which has won competitions in the past) but I decided to do something completely different. I figured what better time to experiment than with a crowd of people to eat at least some of the potentially disastrous results?

I based this recipe off of my dad’s but with lots of substitutions including black beans, pumpkin puree, and cauliflower. When I first tasted it I felt like something was missing only to realize it was meat. So while it wasn’t a failure, as a meat-eater this chili was just okay. Seems kind of wrong to post a recipe that I’m not screaming is the best thing in the whole wide world but that’s life, not everyone likes the same things. If you are vegetarian it may be right up your alley and it is for you that I post this recipe. To me chili just isn’t the same without meat! The chili I voted for (and which won) was made with pulled pork – something I definitely need to try.

Roasted Sweet Potato Tacos with Black Beans and Kale Ceviche

A little bit a prep goes a long way with these veggie tacos featuring roasted sweet potatoes, black beans, and a kale ceviche. 

Roasted Sweet Potato Tacos with Black Beans and Kale Ceviche 1

If you are even remotely familiar with dinnerware then you’ve heard of Corelle. Many of you probably own a set. I know my parents use Corelle dinnerware every day and they even bought me my first 4-piece set when I first went off to college (was that really over 10 years ago?) and they are still in perfect condition. But being a food blogger one set of plates is never enough so I jumped at the opportunity to get my hands on the new Corelle® Boutique™ Brushed pattern which is sold exclusively at select Kohl’s stores. The modern pattern comes in 9 colors which are easy to mix-and-match, of which I am a huge fan. And being Corelle that means they come with certain features:

  • Break and chip resistant for carefree durability
  • Made in the USA
  • Dishwasher safe for long lasting patterns
  • Microwave and oven safe for versatility
  • Stackability for easy storage and cupboard space efficiencies
  • Patterns won’t wash, wear or scratch off
  • 3 year limited warranty

The first meal I graced upon the surface of these pieces was tacos. But not any old tacos, roasted sweet potato, black beans, and kale ceviche taocs! Due to its lengthy nature, upon first glance of the ingredient list you may be frightened off from attempting this recipe yourself but I promise it’s easier than it looks. For starters the ceviche requires no cooking, just toss and let marinade overnight. The following day, toss the sweet potatoes in seasoning and then roast in the oven for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the onions and beans which will be ready in time to assemble it all together. See wasn’t that easy? Lots of chopping for prep but minimal effort from then on and a happy belly as the reward.

What’s a tailgate without a little heat in the form of buffalo wing sauce? But just because we’re talking about buffalo wings does not mean it has to scare away the health-conscious or vegetarians. I made this buffalo dip healthier by using Greek yogurt based Ranch dressing and cream cheese, then veggie-fied it with cauliflower instead of chicken. Best part is that even the indulgent, meat-lover’s will enjoy this dip. Bake in the oven or warm in a mini slow cooker, then serve with celery, carrot, and chips!

Slow Cooker Minestrone Soup & Giveaway

Summer nights are coming to an end. Get ready for cooler temperatures with this hearty slow cooker minestrone soup.

Slow Cooker Minestrone Soup 1

While I like to use my slow cooker year round, now is the time of year when slow cookers typically are used most. Not only has school started for those of you who are students or have kids but the temperatures are starting to decline. As such, the demand for easy weeknight dinners has increased and warm soups/strews are becoming more appealing. I may no longer be a student and do not have kids, but I can still appreciate a comforting soup on a cool night (whenever those decide to get here in TN).

Red Gold was nice enough to send me some of their tomatoes to play around with in my slow cooker. I figured since we are on the verge of summer and fall why not make a soup that takes advantage of the remaining summer produce? This minestrone is almost like the kitchen sink of soups, made with cannellini beans, onion, carrot, celery, zucchini, spinach, rosemary, pesto, and a can of Red Gold’s petite diced tomatoes with garlic and olive oil. Just wait until those aromas smack you in the face upon arriving home after it cooked all day, you’ll want to dive right in there.

I also happen to have a Red Gold Apron to giveaway to one reader. To enter use the Rafflecopter at the end of this post and answer the prompt in the comments section. But wait, there’s more!
