Trial Run: Spatchcocking

Erik said, "No, mom, we need a bigger turkey than that. This one's so wee." I pointed out that it's a chicken. It was delicious, and I'll make avgolemono soup today!

Kidney beans for the win. Plus gluten-free chocolate chip cookies - made with only almond meal, honey, vanilla, butter and chocolate chips.

Unfussy: Potato Skins

Erik (as usual) balked at trying them, but he loved them. Mads didn't like the cheese or bacon, but after scraping it out, ate three or four skins...

The orange and vanilla cake was well loved by all though.

Unfussy: Meatloaf

Erik was thumbs up on meatloaf (after finally trying it), and Mads was on the fence about it. I made Lora's recipe, but with onion powder instead of chopped onion so that E could have zero issues with it. He loved it, but didn't touch the potato. Go figure.

Campfire Cake

My Girl Scout troop bridged to Juniors this weekend, so I made them a campfire cake. This hard candy recipe from was perfect for the flames, but I would at least halve it (maybe even divide by four) for future use - it made a ton!

Amazing. Delicious.

So delicious. You need a food scale to measure everything, and the oven temp translates to 350-degrees F. So worth it.

Greek Pumpkin Pie

It's just so pretty...
So fragrant. So beautiful. I can't wait to taste it later today. I just pulled this out of the oven at 1:01 a.m.

Baked up a sugar-pie pumpkin and butternut squash and had to try this Kolokithopita... fillo pastry pie filled with fresh-baked pumpkin, spices, and raisins.

Halloween Lunch

Not fancy, but she'll love it. Pumpkin-shaped cheese sammy with an extra slice on top, honeycrisp apple, carrot "chips" (purchased cut like that), and the Green Goddess dressing I make that is currently M's fave. I tucked in one pouch of "Fruit Snacks" in Halloween shapes, which is our hand-out this year. Those things are just glorified gummies. Happy Halloween!!

Vegan Morning Glory Muffins

Only in my kitchen is it possible to accidentally make vegan muffins past midnight. Completely altered a recipe, was out of eggs so used Ener-G Egg Replacer, and... they're great!

Now, I need to get some to Miki.

Potato Leek Soup

Easiest ever, and always delicious.  Chop (and rinse) 3-4 leeks, chop several golden potatoes (I did 5), cover all with water, boil then simmer until everything is softened. Blend with an immersion blender and season to taste. I added homemade chicken stock to mine, diced chicken and some garlic foccacia croutons to serve. Delish!
