Tomato and Summer Squash Stew




This Tomato and Summer Squash Stew is a quick easy and incredibly delicious meal.  It's the perfect dish to ease you into the cooler fall evenings while still hanging onto a little bit of that summer flavor.  Apologies for the single cell phone picture, but we gobbled this up before I could take a proper shot.  Next time!

I refuse to acknowledge that it's 90+ degrees out. #mamalovesfood


Tomato and Summer Squash Stew, Ingredients:

  •  olive oil
  • 6 roma tomatoes, small cubed
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, chopped
  • 3 summer squash, cubed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 small sweet onion, minced
  • 1 - 4 cups chicken (or vegetable) stock (here's how to make chicken stock)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Tomato and Summer Squash Stew, Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients except stock to a large pan and simmer on medium/low with a small amount of olive oil, covered until squash is cooked tender and the vegetables have created their own broth.
  2. Add desired amount of stock to reach your preferred consistency (I like only a little bit so it's thick and hearty) and simmer an additional 10 minutes.  Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Enjoy!

Gingersnap and Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Cookies




EVERYTHING PUMPKIN season is only just getting started, so here we are with my Gingersnap and Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Cookies... just in case the Cinnamon Roll Pumpkin Sugar Cookies weren't Autumn enough for you.  Or, if you just needed another excuse to make MORE PUMPKIN FOOD!!!  Because, nom nom nom nom.


Gingersnap and Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Cookies, Ingredients:

  • One package gingerbread cookie mix, prepared (I'm partial to Betty Crocker)
  • 4-5 ounces Pumpkin Butter (about 8-10 tablespoons)
  • glaze ingredients (optional):
    • 2 tablespoons whole milk
    • 2 tablespoons melted butter
    • 1/4 teaspoon real vanilla extract
    • 2 cups powdered sugar

Gingersnap and Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Cookies, Directions:

  1. Roll cookie dough out into a large rectangle, on a piece of foil or plastic wrap.
  2. Spread a thin layer of pumpkin butter (I hope you're using my pumpkin butter recipe!) over cookie dough and roll up lengthwise.  Wrap with foil or plastic wrap and freeze at least 2-3 hours.
  3. Carefully remove dough from wrap, and slice into 1/2" thick cookies.  Bake on parchment at 375 degrees for approximately 9 - 11 minutes (until edges are set).  Cool on a wire wrack.
  4. Optional glaze step: combine milk, butter, and vanilla. Pour slowly into sugar, stirring constantly until desired consistency is reached.   Drizzle over cookies.
  5. Enjoy!!!
