Autumn Wild Rice with Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Pecans and Goat Cheese

This time of year I get a little homesick for Fall in New England.

And then I remember that I’m still surfing in a bikini, and I won’t have to shovel any snow this winter.

And then I’m not homesick anymore.

Sesame Ginger Quinoa Salad

I made this salad for the first time last summer while Miles was off surfing in Sri Lanka with his bros, and it was so good I literally ate it every meal.  The first time I made it I was inspired by another recipe I had come across, but since then I have made this so many times that I have altered it to become my own. The flavors get even better when it sits for a day or two, and it is a perfect cold salad packed with protein, veggies and the most delicious dressing of all time.

Garlicky Broccoli and Spaghetti Squash

I made this for lunch this past Sunday after Miles and I came back from camping at the beach (actually Miles camped, I went home and slept in our bed like a wimp). I had a spaghetti squash in the pantry and some broccoli that I needed to use. I’ve made this basic dish before with pasta, but apparently I only cook with spaghetti squash now (like in this recipe), so I just subbed it in.

Perfectly garlicky, filling, and vegetarian, this was a great Sunday lunch for two.
