It really has been a while since I’ve shared a recipe with you all.

Trust me, I really miss the kitchen. Between the wedding, the move and the apartment search, I haven’t had my own kitchen for over a month!

The end is in sight though and I’ve got a huge list of things that need to be made. I’m baaaack! ;)

Anyway, brown butter is pretty much amazing. I’m convinced you could drizzle it over anything and whatever it was would taste delicious.

When you combine brown butter with squash and sage however, you are instantly transported to fall and all that comes with it. Crunchy leaves, pumpkin lattes, and brown boots. Any squash (or vegetable for that matter) would work although the acorn squash that I used was especially delicious.

And it felt like fall while I was eating it, even though I haven’t busted out my brown boots quite yet.


Acorn Squash with Sage Brown Butter


  • 2 small acorn sqush, sliced
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1/3 cup chopped sage
  • salt & pepper


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Bake squash for about 45-60 minutes until soft.
  3. Heat butter on medium-low heat.
  4. When hot, add sage and season with salt & pepper.
  5. Cook, stirring frequently for about 10 minutes until butter is a brownish shade and sage is crispy.
  6. Brush butter mixture over squash slices and serve.

I think that in this day and age, most people start their day off with a little online reading, am I right? I know I do. I get into my morning routine, preferably with coffee, and check emails, send out a tweet and read a few articles before I can really start the day. Here

five a day

five servings a day

Last week on our crazy apartment hunting spree we stopped for coffee. (I think we’ve found a place by the way!!!) The line was so long after I placed my order that I decided to roam around the deli section of the grocery store. I came across this: Even though I’m more of a eight

review: somersault snacks

I’ve always resisted buying the somersault snacks that I’ve seen in various coffee shops. I have no idea why. I’ve picked them up, read the ingredients and always kind of thought they wouldn’t be very good. Thankfully for my sake, the lollihop package that I received last month had a bag of the sea salt

daily eats: 10.12.11

I can’t believe it is already mid October! It was a hot, hot day in LA today. Abnormally hot although we still saw people with sweatshirts, coats, etc. I wonder if we will ever wear a sweatshirt when it is 90 degrees out… Apartment searching is our main focus at this point, but after two

ask the nutritionist: staying healthy while on the road

As you know, I spent almost the last week on the road, and prior to that, a week moving, and now, still not quite moved into our own place. Can I just tell you how much I’m dying to cook in my own kitchen again? It feels like it has been forever! Staying healthy on

Last Tuesday, bright and early the Taster and I set out on our journey to California. Starting in Wisconsin, we journeyed through Minnesota, South Dakota,Wyoming, Utah, Nevada and finally, California. We experienced temperatures ranging from 95 to 30 and then back to 75 and sunny (LA). We drove a lot. But it was a blast. We
