Fire up the grill this summer with Kraft and one of their 8 new BBQ sauce flavors. The thick & smokey sauce was perfect in and on top of these black bean and quinoa veggie burgers.
Low carb and gluten free has never looked so pretty and inventive. A cauliflower crust is topped with pureed beets, goat cheese, candied walnuts, and fresh arugula.
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.
