Stuffed acorn squash with cranberry, pecans and quinoa then drizzled with a simple goat cheese crema. Perfect for vegetarians at Thanksgiving, or anytime you’re looking for a healthy plant based meal or side.

Here we are again! Thanksgiving is getting close and I’m more than ready to bust out all the fabulous recipes I’ve been testing in my kitchen over the last few weeks. Safe to say Abra and I have been eating very, very well.

To me, Thanksgiving can involve your Grandma’s classic recipes but it can also be about experimenting with new recipes and creating your own traditions. Since coming into Tony’s family, I’ve introduced my both my cranberry sauce and sweet potato casserole to the table and now each year we’re sure not to miss it.

I’m even more excited about the recipes I’m going to post this week and next because they are creative, beautiful and healthy. YASSS.

Homemade roasted tomato basil soup with garlic, olive oil and caramelized onions. Delicious, flavorful and the best way to use up garden tomatoes! You’ll never want to go back to the canned stuff after you try this.

When I was younger, I despised tomato soup. The flavors never seemed to call for me, nor did I ever crave grilled cheese. My favorite was Mom’s chunky beef stew that simmered and bubbled on the stovetop for hours in our small yellow duplex kitchen back in Minneapolis. It wasn’t until high school that I began to crave the comfort of creamy tomato soup after Mom started buying Progresso’s hearty tomato.

Oh hey Monday. I hope you guys had an amazing (and hopefully) shorter week last week. My mom and I spent some much needed time together exploring and walking around Chicago, getting pedicures, baking tahini brownies, new muffin recipes, and making her amazing Puerto Rican food that I haven’t had since I was 18. Where does the time go?

Every time I’m with my mom, I’m inspired to go back to the authentic flavors of Latin cuisine that I grew up with. Sofrito, homemade sazon, plantains, green chile and so much more. I can’t wait to start incorporating those flavors more into my recipes and teaching you all about the food that’s near and dear to my heart.
