I appreciate you all for being a part of my year  — for visiting my site, looking at my photographs, reading bits about my life, trying my recipes and leaving me comments.   All of this truly means a lot to me — it makes all of the thought and time I put into my work […]

Vegan Creamy Mushroom Soup Recipe

Skinny Cream of Mushroom Soup | cookingontheweekends.com

There’s Cream of Mushroom Soup and then there’s Creamy Mushroom Soup. Both are delicious, but the Creamy Mushroom Soup is made sans cream — though you’d never know it.  Never. The super creamy texture comes from the puréeing process, which is best achieved in a powerful blender.  This, plus the earthy flavor of the mushrooms […]

Roasted Butternut Squash Gingerbread Recipe

Roasted Butternut Squash Ginger Bread Recipe - cookingontheweekends.com

This year we had a smaller Thanksgiving than usual and it was lovely — warm, peaceful and intimate.  Eleven of us fit around my parents’ beautiful dining room table, candles lit, kids giggling, dogs under the table, and my dad carving the turkey.  It was perfect — except for one thing . . . Circumstances […]

Roasted Butternut Squash Sage Butter

Roasted Butternut Squash Sage Butter | cookingontheweekends.com

I know, it’s a little bit redundant.  I could hardly call butternut squash a “nut” squash, though. I absolutely love blending delicious flavors into butter — you can do this with almost anything, and then use it on almost anything.  (This is called a compound butter.) Imagine the flavors of earthy sage, sweet squash, and […]

It finally feels like fall where I live.  It’s a little bit grey outside, I’ve dusted off my UGGS and the couch is adorned with cozy blankets. All of this is an invitation for comfort foods.  I know we all have our own ideas of what comfort foods are, and this risotto recipe epitomizes mine. […]

Purple Sweet Potato Soup with Spicy Chile Oil

Purple Sweet Potato--Soup with Spicy Chile Oil | cookingontheweekends.com

 This soup is really this color.  It’s this purple, this bright, and this beautiful. The purple of these Stokes Sweet Potatoes only becomes deeper and more intense when they’re cooked.  And the color varies slightly depending on the type of preparation.  When we made the Chile-Lemon Purple Sweet Potato Fries, for example, after roasting with […]

Chai Spiced Winter Oatmeal Recipe

Chai Spiced Winter Oatmeal | cookingontheweekends.com

A blend of Chai spices can warm your heart and soothe your soul. At least, I think it can. (And even more, I love how that sounds.) Much like a curry, there are many different blends of chai with various combinations of spices.  In this recipe I use cardamom, cinnamon, cloves and ginger and together they […]

Pumpkin Pie-Olive Oil Muffins and Cupcakes (Gluten-Free Recipe) | cookingontheweekends.com

What’s the best compliment one can get about the food they cook? Of course we all find it delightful to hear people say how delicious it is, how beautiful it is, etc.  However, my favorite compliment is when someone tries something they actively don’t like, and they love it. Take my cousin Beth for example.   […]
