Zucchini Bread

This is such a simple savory bread and is always a total hit. It's perfect for a potluck, a side dish, or a Sunday morning breakfast. This recipe makes one loaf and is adapted from The Kitchn.

Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treats

In September, I rescued a dog. For the holidays, I decided to make her (& some of her dog friends) homemade treats. They're so much healthier for the dog because you can choose exactly what to put in them. This recipe is a huge one and makes quite a bit of treats, so be sure to share and eat within the week, or freeze for future use (up to 3 months). This recipe is adapted from Kevin & Amanda (be sure to click through because they have the cutest photos of their pups posted!).

Butternut Squash Risotto

I was so proud of myself that this recipe turned out as delicious as it did. I am - ashamedly - usually a boxed risotto kind of person, but this time, I wanted to go full homemade, and I did! This is a delicious recipe, and is based off of a Williams-Sonoma recipe. I used the full amounts of this recipe and later realized that it served six, so for this post, I'll cut it in half to serve three (although the leftovers were delish!). Enjoy!

Cheesy Cauliflower Casserole

The key to a good Thanksgiving dish is to take a healthy food and cover it in cheese/butter/gravy (I am only half-kidding). This year, I took steamed cauliflower and doused it in cheese. This recipe makes one large casserole dish (which is enough for your entire party to get an initial and a second serving), and has been adapted from Real Housemoms.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Croissants

This week, my coworker celebrated surviving breast cancer by hosting a "pink potluck" at work. We all wore pink and many of us brought in pink food. Choosing a recipe based on the food's color is actually not an easy thing to do, but I did it. This is an easy and delicious addition to any potluck or brunch.
