Butternut Squash Risotto with Balsamic Drizzle & Fried Sage

November 16, 2015 Dinner
Butternut Squash Risotto with Balsamic & Sage

I made risotto for the first time back in 2011, and was so excited about it that I waited almost five years to make it again. That’s just what happens in my kitchen though. There’s always something new to make, so I forget about the things I made that I loved. Risotto also has such […]

Cheesy Butternut Squash Rigatoni

November 4, 2014 Dinner
Cheesy Butternut Squash Rigatoni

You know this thing the kids say these days – “pics or it didn’t happen”? On Planet Byn it’s like “blog or you didn’t eat it”. I swear, if I don’t blog about something I made, even if I LOVED it, I will promptly forget that it ever existed. I have made this pasta dish […]

November 23, 2013 Dinner
Roasted Butternut Squash & Mushroom Pie

Mushroom BOOM! That was our challenge for this week, and I knew right away what I wanted to make. Smitten Kitchen’s Mushroom Bourguignon, which is both on her site and in her cookbook. It was warm, cozy, and filling, but just not really a looker. Since I had the day off on Remembrance Day, I […]

October 21, 2013 Bread
Butternut Squash Gratin

  Taking a look back in my archives it seems like I only contribute dessert to Thanksgiving dinner, so I’m making sure to blog about the sides I brought this year, because they were AMAZING. The thing with my family is that they just want the regulars around the table, and are sometimes suspicious when […]

Butternut Squash & Black Bean Burrito Bowl

  One of my goals for September was obviously not blogging to cook more real dinners at home. Once my big project launched at work at the end of June, I was busy having fun in July & August, and wasn’t really doing a good job of meal planning and cooking. After a super relaxing […]

Butternut Squash Soup

October 20, 2011 Gluten-Free

I was planning on going all ‘Anna & Kristina’s Grocery Bag’ on Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbook My Father’s Daughter, but it still hasn’t happened. If you’ve never seen it, or don’t regularly watch the W Network, on the A&K show they take a cookbook and make 6-8 recipes from it, and decide if they would recommend it to […]

Risotto with Roasted Butternut Squash

January 24, 2011 Vegetarian

I’ve always assumed making risotto is a lengthy process, based on what I’ve seen on the Food Network.  I’ve never made it at home, because it seems kind of intimidating, and I hate wasting time and ingredients on things that don’t turn out.  Nevertheless, I know I need to work on this, so I bought a bag […]

Butternut Squash Galette

Updated with a new picture February 2, 2014 Yesterday I brought some leftover shortbread cookies into work, as they were taking up valuable real estate in my freezer. Seriously, most people just groaned and walked right by. Happy New Year! Time to detox! I feel like we’re bombarded with this message as soon as the […]

Updated with a new picture November 2, 2014 Here’s my first Elimination Challenge Dinner! I have wanted to try this for the longest time, after Nicole made it and raved about it last year.
