This time of the year, when there is a chill in the air, warming comfort food is essential! I especially love dishes using squash, which is one of my favorites! This dish uses spaghetti squash to make a hearty and healthy meal! The sauce is flavorful, and I use the squash in place of where spaghetti would be in a spaghetti casserole. This is just the thing to make on a cool night! It reheats wonderfully too, so if you have leftovers you can enjoy it tomorrow!

We are in the middle of pear season, so it is the perfect time to use up those ripe pears in baked goods! These scones are simple, but so good and ready in under an hour.

They make the perfect weekend morning treat and a great addition to a brunch spread, or to enjoy with some tea or coffee!
You can turn canned chickpeas into a delicious meal with this easy to make salad!

Serve it over romaine lettuce for more of a main dish meal, or as is for a side.
Tis the season for ice cream! One of my favorite things to make in the summer, is home made ice cream! It is fun to create new and interesting flavors, and I can make a much heathier version than store bought. This ice cream is vegan, because it contains a coconut milk base. I combine it with almond butter and fresh cherries plus a little vanilla and the result is a creamy, delicious sweet cherry ice cream! If you don’t have an ice cream maker, I have included directions for making it without one.
Pickled green beans are easy to make, and a delicious for a snack, or addition to a picnic spread. These ones are quick pickled, so they come together in about 30 minutes, and only take a few days until they are ready!
