Baby, it's cold outside! Time for some weekend comfort foods...

Kabocha squash is becoming our new comfort food. I'll be making it into a luscious soup with kale and white beans, but first I'll need some homemade chicken stock, or vegetable stock. That always puts me in the mood for spending time in the kitchen creating some of my favorite meals, especially as the days grow colder and shorter.

What will you be cooking this weekend? If you need some inspiration, come in to Delectablz.com and see what's cooking. Or, go to AskDelectablz, in the navigation bar and ask a question, I'll be here waiting for you.

Hope you have a delectable weekend, I know I will!

Some delectable treats are worth repeating…

It's winter squash season!

That's right, inside the hard shell are luscious yellow strands that are a whimsical substitute for ordinary pasta; and not just for gluten free eaters. Sprinkle with fresh grated parmesan or add a little butter, salt and pepper, as a side dish. You can even use it as a base for tomato sauce, or a meaty bolognese. 

Good news; Spaghetti Squash can be cooked whole, in the microwave, in about 20 minutes!

If there is a Farmers' Market near you this weekend, why not go out and pick up some fresh offerings? The Fall bounty is quite fun to play with. Ever heard of Kabocha squash? Well, more on that later. In the meantime, we challenge you to go find one and roast it - you will be glad you did!
