Couscous with Roasted Winter Squash, Apple, and Chorizo

Well, it is the week before Thanksgiving and in between all of the prep for the big day, we’ve still got to eat…cue seasonal, easy recipes that can make a lot.  I made this recipe last night and it is delicious and full of flavor.  I wish that I had doubled or tripled it; which you can easily do (as long as you have a big enough bowl to mix it all in.)  My one tweak would be on the apples.  I used granny smith and cut them into 1/2 inch dice as instructed; they disintegrated.  Next time, I would cut them into 1 inch pieces or reduce their cooking time.  Everything tasted great, the apples were just off texture-wise.  Also, definitely taste at the end and don’t skimp on the smoked paprika.  Happy Thanksgiving!!

Custardy Apple Squares

I am a newbie to the Dorie Greenspan cult, but I can see why she has built up such a following.  She writes clear recipes that are easily reproducible.  Believe me when I say, as a recipe junkie, when you find a consistent author, you stick with them, because there are so many poorly written recipes.  It happens all of the time, you see a beautiful picture and read what looks to be fairly straight forward instructions and then try to make it and realize the reason there are only 5 steps is that the other 20 are either written in invisible ink or were lost somewhere in editing.  I have had no such issue with Ms Greenspan’s recipes, which is why I bring you this one today.  No, I have not made it yet, but have every confidence that it will turn out well.  Plus, since apples are in season, but we seem to be experiencing some dog days of summer, it feels like a fall treat that is not too heavy.  I will not be able to partake until November, since I will be away most of October, so post some pictures in the comments when you guys try it out.  As a side note; since I will be away, no recipe posts until I return in November.  Happy Halloween!!

Apple Crumble

I am sorry for the tardy recipe post this week, but internet issues and feeling a little under the weather kept me away from the computer for the last couple of days. Onto the recipe…It is less than two weeks until Thanksgiving y’all!!!! Don’t panic (deep cleansing breaths,) but if you need a go to dessert that packs a punch of apple flavor, does not take a ton of time, and is not a great deal of effort; this apple crumble is for you. A whopping 3 pounds of apples go into this crumble and it is simple enough that it could be prepared for a weeknight dessert or on Thanksgiving morning for your family get together. If you have a bigger crowd, just double the recipe and put together in a 13×9 baking dish.
