One of the prettiest things I've done with a sugar pie pumpkin from my CSA farm share is this dish. Creamy macaroni and cheese with bits of Italian sausage baked in a pumpkin from the new cookbook MELT: The Art of Macaroni and Cheese by Stephanie Stiavetti and Garrett McCord.
This is a yummy pizza inspired by an apple my mom brought me and some neat cheese I picked up at Costco. Paired with some caramelized onions and crispy bacon from the freezer, it's a delicious fall pizza.

I've been traveling in England for the last two weeks, and that means that I've had my fare share of Cotswold cheeses, cured meats and fish n chips. The minute the plane touched down on home soil, I knew it was time for some fresh veggies! Good thing my neighbor dropped off our Parker Farm CSA share last night:
1 bunch golden beets, 1 bunch carrots, 1 bunch kale, 2 zucchini, 3 cucumbers, 2 pounds new potatoes, 1/2 pound roma beans and 1 bunch red spring onions.
Heat wave be…Continue
