This week's featured What We've Been Reading blog, A Couple Cooks, is written by just such a team, plus it features all healthy, homemade food. Each week, Alex and Sonja document their fantastic kitchen experiments, highlighting healthy, tasteful food that relies on all seasonal ingredients. So, take a break from the Halloween sugar splurge and detox with some of these great recipes!
We were originally pulled into the blog by this week's posting for Roasted Cauliflower Risotto, in which beautiful veggies of the season are roasted slowly and cooked down into a creamy, rich risotto that pairs perfectly with a crisp white wine. Also great come this chillier autumn weather is the lighter, lunch-appropriate recipe for Apple Almond Quinoa. This texture-rich dish is full of fall flavors, thanks to the use of Craisins, apples, almonds and more. We love it as an updated Thanksgiving side dish to pair alongside the regular holiday staples! Also great for Thanksgiving are the Loaded Sweet Potato Skins with Kale, yum!
For a lighter, slightly healthier dessert, try the Honey Almond Rhubarb Crumble, a slightly tangy yet sweet dessert that will hit all of your sweet tooth cravings. We also can't help but love the relatively easy recipe for Peppermint Stick Ice Cream as we come closer to winter holiday season. There was never a better reason to add an ice cream maker to your wishlist.
Spend some time today to check out A Couple Cooks, we promise you will lose yourself in the pages of wonderful recipes and mouthwatering food photos. Enjoy!
