Topped with lightly fried thyme, rosemary, and sage, then served with a squeeze of lemon, this juicy dish is comfort food at its finest.  So call over friends, pull out a deep cast iron skillet, and treat yourself.

Prep for the evening at our Sunday Supper: Southern Delights Boutique on Sunday, February 16, at 3PM ET.

Comfort Food (with a Fall Twist) from Two Peas and Their Pod

Our go-to foodie bloggers, Maria and Josh from Two Peas and Their Pod, have taken one kid-favorite recipe and transformed in into a fall dinner-party must-have. Enter: Butternut Squash Mac ‘n’ Cheese.

“If you are a little skeptical about adding butternut squash to your mac ‘n’ cheese. Don’t be,” Maria writes. “Josh roasted the butternut squash before pureeing it to bring out the best flavors. He used aged white cheddar and sharp cheddar cheese. He also added in chopped fresh rosemary and topped the mac ‘n’ cheese with whole wheat breadcrumbs.”

Creamy and filling, serve it on any fall evening or turn it into a tradition at Thanksgiving dinner.

Serve Up the South

Comfort food calls for something fried – enough said

On our menu this week: Southern food. First course: fried pickles. From foodie Dan Whalen‘s blog, The Food in my Beard (it’s one of our faves), this bite-sized appetizer is equal parts crunch and flavor.

Kick it up a notch by making your own tart pickles soaked in apple cidar vinegar. Then finish with a spicy horseradish aioli. Just one bite. Mood = instantly improved. There’s a reason it’s called “comfort food,” after all.
