comfort food

My blogging break lasted longer than I anticipated, but hey, taking care of an infant is hard work! :) And this little one has not given me much free time to spend in the kitchen. I'm hoping now that she's almost 3 months old, things might calm down...wishful thinking perhaps?! But for now, I'm taking advantage of the few minutes I have while she's sleeping to share some recipes.

Here in Ohio the weather has become chilly, so our house has been filled with comforting fall dishes. Over the past month we've had some wonderful meals (although my husband and I ate very few together thanks to our little Sofia, who always seems to get upset right as we're sitting down to eat!). My recent favorites- chicken pot pie, and butternut squash risotto!

This is a great recipe from barefoot contessa, and perfect for a fall or winter dinner. You can find the recipe for this chicken potpie here.

And this butternut squash risotto is the perfect way to use up all of that local squash! It's so creamy and sweet. Make sure you top it with lots of parmesan cheese. You can find the recipe here.



  1. Holy comfort food - I want to make both of those today!

  2. That butternut squash risotto looks amazing!

  3. First of all, Sofia looks absolutely angelic in that photo and second, I made that butternut squash risotto and it was DELICIOUS! Thank you so much for such a perfect fall recipe.

  4. I'm going to try that risotto this weekend!
