Technically you don’t have to roasted the squash before you make this soup but the flavor is much richer if you do and it’s easier to cut squash up if you roast it first. You can absolutely used pre-cut squash and roast that also. This soup is a real warm winter treat and can be topped off with crushed nuts, breadcrumbs, or grated cheese. Paired with a nice roll or a salad it can easily be a full meal.
Couldn’t be simpler it’s what nature intended for all those bananas you seem to end up having leftover some weeks. Perfect with butter, jam, or a smear of cream cheese or even just by itself this recipe takes about 10 minutes to come together in a single bowl and the results are great. Add in coconut flakes, nuts, or even some chocolate chips to take it to the next level.
These are pretty easy to make and they seriously look impressive despite having only a handful of ingredients. I like the really delicious childhood flavors of apple and cinnamon together. You can top this with powered sugar instead of mascarpone if you prefer and feel free to make the apple topping as complicated or simple as you like (I added ginger, nutmeg, and cardamom and used honey instead of sugar) so just have a good time with it.

I suspect that the reason I loved this soup so much is because I used homemade stock but sometimes a simple vegetable soup on a cool day is just exactly you need. This one is built with simple vegetables and flavors without any noodles or rice so you just get 100% vegetables all the time (and I suppose some beans too, if you’re feeling it).Continue reading
I never have “leftover mashed potatoes” but I really wanted to make potatoes rolls and found this great recipe. I am still unclear if the potato in them really does anything but they were so good I literally made them three times in a month so maybe it does? These wonderful fluffy rolls are perfect with soup, salad, or as a breakfast accompaniment and come together with very little effort. Also since they’re individual rolls instead of a loaf of bread they last a good 3-4 days without going stale (if they last that long before you eat them of course)!Continue reading
I’ve come to really appreciate halloumi during my time in Estonia because I can’t usually get paneer in stores and halloumi has the same quality of not melting when heated through which allows for great and delicious ideas like grilled the slices of cheese and putting in on top of a big bowl of couscous, hummus, and vegetables. This 10 minute lunch (or low effort dinner) is loaded with deliciousness.Continue reading
A British staple filled with nooks and crannies these aren’t available at all in Estonia so when I was craving them I thought I’d be kind of out of luck or that the recipe would be super difficult but I was pleasantly surprised that it’s no more difficult than making pancakes. I used biscuit cutters for the mold rings which was a little annoying but doable. These are really lovely with a bit of jam and cream cheese.Continue reading
These are a great thing to make ahead of time with pre-made wonton wrapped. I used surimi to make them even cheaper and easier but you can use canned crab or already shedded crab and it’ll be just as good if not better. These freeze (pre-fry) very well and then take just a few minutes to make so they’re great for a party, side dish, or snacking.Continue reading
I’m a big fan of eating toast and eggs in the morning but I don’t always feel like making it so I made these breakfast tarts for an entire week of eggs and toast that only takes a few minutes on the weekend to make so I can just grab them in the morning with my coffee so there’s nothing extra to do or wash.Continue reading
Are these going to win an award for attractiveness? No. But they are really delicious and really simple to make. These are of the multitudes of recipes that calls for “leftover mashed potatoes” which I don’t actually believe in but if you want to eat potatoes but don’t exactly want mashed potatoes this is a great inbetween recipe. This could be the main dish or a side dish and you can make the mashed potatoes ahead of time so that it only takes 15 minutes for an easy last minute dinner.Continue reading
