I absolutely love the colors of fall and watching the leaves change to dark red, rich oranges, and bright yellows. I could sit outside for hours just staring at the trees and breathing in the crisp autumn air. I am definitely the kind of person who loves having all four seasons, especially fall.
This roasted butternut squash soup is now my go-to autumn dish to make.The butternut squash turns it a beautifully saturated orange hue that reminds me of the leaves outside. The soup melds the flavors of butternut squash, tart apples, and sage so it’s basically autumn in a bowl! And why stop there when you can top it with a slice of toasted baguette (re: as many as your heart desires) with chopped sage and melty gruyere cheese?
And fortunately, this soup is so easy to put together and is perfect for leftovers. Most of the time spent making this soup is waiting for the butternut squash to roast in the oven, which gave me just enough time to put my laundry in the washing machine and transfer it to the dryer. I love when I can be efficient and multi-task! And then once the squash is roasted, the soup comes together so quickly that you’ll be asking for seconds before you know it. « Read the rest of this entry »

I think since Baltimore has had a few warm and sunny days recently, a celebration is appropriate, especially after dealing with almost a whole week of frigid rain before this. So in honor of this warmer weather, I’m holding off on inundating you with all the fall-inspired foods (get excited for an easy and delicious soup recipe coming soon!) and sharing these Dirty Chai Cinnamon Rolls instead!
Breakfast is arguably the most important meal of the day so I take it very seriously. These cinnamon buns are the epitome of dessert for breakfast. I mean it has caffeine in it so it must be a breakfast food, am I right? The fact that it has chai, espresso, cinnamon, and brown sugar all wrapped up in a cute swirly treat makes waking up early well worth it. Now that’s what I call being efficient.
