Is anyone else obsessed with The Great British Bake Off (I thinks its called The Great British Baking Show in the US…)? It’s such a warm hug of a show. It breaks the pastry mold when it comes to reality competition shows. It delivers only the positive aspects of the contestants, eliminates all drama and interpersonal conflict; characters are seen helping each other out, and hugging each other when they are struggling through a challenge. Judges critique objectively, and you never see contestants being produced to bring out the worst in themselves or criticize others.
I have been obsessed with focaccia bread lately. Not sure why. Maybe it’s because I tried eating gluten free for a couple of weeks, and every time I went to Sprouts to look at their gluten free bread selection, I was seriously tempted by these plastic bags of freshly baked focaccia that looked infinitely better than the chilled bricks of bread in the GF cooler.
You read that right. “Mush”zarella sticks. As in mushroom mozzarella sticks. As in, there’s no cheese anywhere near these sticks, just mushrooms. And no, these aren’t just air-fried mushroom. No no no. These healthy appetizers are greater than the sum of their parts. Trust me.
These Spaghetti Squash Sesame Sunflower Noodles are everything! I’ve taken my favorite sesame noodle recipe, subbed in sunflower butter for the peanut butter, and Bragg’s in for the soy sauce (making this recipe gluten free and nut free), and spaghetti squash noodles in for the spaghetti noodles. The resulting dish is just as healthy as it is delicious.
Now that your spaghetti squash is perfectly cooked, and your noodles are ready, lets turn it into something amazing! How about pumpkin spice ramen with spaghetti squash noodles! You heard that right. These squash noodles work so well in ramen, and they add an extra layer of fall flavor to this seasonally seasoned broth. This broth is rich and flavorful; full of cozy flavors from the warming fall spices. You’ll thank me later.
