Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese Gratin | Life Currents http://lifecurrents.dw2.net

I’m honored that Becca asked me to guest post on her blog, It’s Yummi, and I’m thrilled to share my Butternut Squash Gratin with you today. It’s a great balance of flavors, filling earthy butternut squash, oniony leeks, and creamy tangy goat cheese, all wrapped up in a lovely hot gratin. And, all those veggies! Yum!

Mushroom Soup

Homemade Vegetarian Mushroom Soup from Life Currents http://lifecurrents.dw2.net

This Homemade Vegetarian Mushroom Soup is absolutely divine. Just filled with earthy meaty mushroom goodness all accented by some herby thyme. And, topped off with just the right about of creamy milk. This isn’t ordinary run-of-the-mill cream of mushroom soup, no, this one is a keeper. This one is one that I’ll make again and again. It’s good. Really good!

Maple Roasted Carrots

I’ve made a different recipe for Maple-Thyme Roasted Carrots for a few years now. The reason I decided to try this new recipe for Christmas Eve Dinner 2014. was that it’s all hands-off time in the kitchen. It takes a bit longer to roast them like this, but there’s no real work for the cook during that roasting time. And, yes, these times are correct, a total of 100 minutes in the oven. But it gets you a beautiful yummy carrot!

Quick and Easy Paella

I was very honored when Tara at Noshing with the Nolands asked me to guest post on her blog. I think Spanish Paella is a great special dish; it’s fancy and filled with yumminess. But, I think most people aren’t going to take the time to get a Paella pan and cook up a big batch of the seafood & rice stew. Thus, enter the Quick and Easy Paella made with orzo instead of rice. All the flavors of Paella, but easier and more accessible to many people, and, my version has lots of veggie goodness.

Lentils with Winter Vegetables

My Christmas Eve Menu 2014 and a recipe for Lentils with Winter Vegetables

My Christmas Eve Menu 2014 with a recipe for Lentils with Winter Vegetables. I hosted Christmas Eve dinner this year for my mom and her husband. It’s so lovely to be able to get together with family. That’s really true for any time of the year, but especially during the holidays.
