Sweet Potato, Zucchini and Bacon Pancakes with (or without) Gorgonzola Cheese

Pretty soon you all will notice that I'm going through a couple of phases in my food preferences in some upcoming posts. First of all, I'm borderline obsessed with gorgonzola cheese at the moment. Seriously, I've been putting that stuff in everything. It's even good with roasted fruit for dessert...especially with warm pears, toasted pecans and a drizzle of honey (o. em. geee. It's soooo good!). I truly love gorgonzola cheese, but my husband doesn't... so there's. the. rub.

Wow, just a tiny little nod to Hamlet makes anything feel so serious all of sudden, right? Oh, man. Well, these sweet potato, zucchini and bacon pancakes aren't serious... unless seriously tasty counts. Anyhoo...


White Chocolate Tartlets #Choctoberfest

 I'm not sure what it is about these last few days and participating in #Choctoberfest, but I've pretty much had "party food" on the brain! That being said, these little white chocolate tartlets are another recipe I love to whip up during the holidays.

Chocolate Orange Truffles #Choctoberfest

I don't know about you guys, but when I get a craving for chocolate I mostly think about getting my hands on some rich, luxurious chocolate candy to satisfy it. Store-bought candy bars are wonderful for a quick chocolate fix, but when I have the time, I enjoy making my own fancy-looking chocolate truffles!


Double Chocolate Buttermilk Quick Bread #Choctoberfest

When I heard that the Imperial Sugar Company and some other amazing sponsors were celebrating a week of all-things-chocolate and recruiting bloggers to share recipes for an event called #Choctoberfest, I immediately knew I wanted to participate! And after I made one little loaf of this double chocolate buttermilk quick bread, I knew it would be the first recipe I shared this week.


Welcome to #Choctoberfest with Imperial Sugar!

#Choctoberfest with Imperial Sugar

Hi everyone! I've been so excited for this week to get here to share about this big event! This will surely be one of my favorite weeks of the year because #Choctoberfest is finally here!

Roasted Carrot Soup

Some of my absolute favorite things to eat are simple, blended vegetable soups. I make soups like this roasted carrot soup often, but I will alternate the ingredients and use a wide variety of vegetables as the star. Y'all, this was the first time I've ever made carrot soup!

As I prepared this soup I genuinely didn't know what to expect from the flavor, but I hoped it wouldn't be too sweet. I have to share that I was pretty impressed with the first flavorful bite of it... and ultimately I was quite happy to consume an entire bowlful of it. This was such an easy dish to make and it turned out with such rich flavor on the first try, that it nearly seemed too good of a recipe to be true, y'all. (Second guessing myself is one of my pastimes.)
