A preview of what's to come

Sorry for letting blogging fall by the wayside so quickly and not posting last week, but that's what Snowtober will do to a New England transplant living in Pennsylvania!

As hibernation season sets in, though, I tend to spend more time in the kitchen, so you can expect another post this week (or maybe even a third) to make up for my absence last week. Already on the menu for this week are renditions of the following, so get ready!
Getting into the holiday spirit, I'm also looking forward to recreating some of my favorite comfort foods. So far I know I want to tackle a hearty vegetarian chili and a healthful version of loaded baked potato soup, as well as (vegetarian) pot pie, but surely I'm missing some cold weather classics. Any suggestions?

Also coming up on the calendar is my participation in the first annual Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap! That's right! Come this December, I will be exchanging three dozen cookies with three other food bloggers! Exciting, right? Sign-ups are still open if you are interested. If not, at least stay tuned to see what cookie recipes I test out before finding the perfect one to send out to other food bloggers. You don't want to miss this!


  1. I would be honored to be a taste-tester for all of the above, please :D

  2. I kind of think everyone's comfort foods are different...I tend to think of sweet things as comfort foods, especially hot chocolate like my mom used to make when I'd come in from building snowmen...you could definitely make it healthier using good cocoa powder, organic lowfat milk and raw sugar to sweeten...if you REALLY wanted to go crazy you could make your own marshmallows (something I've always wanted to try)!
