Ravioli with Butternut Squash and Brown Butter

Ravioli pairs up with a creamy sauce made of roasted butternut squash and brown butter. It’s easy enough for weeknight family dinner but elegant enough for a dressier occasion, too. Serve it as a main course or dole out smaller portions and enjoy it as a starter.

Chicken Thighs with Maple Vinegar Glaze

Chicken Thighs with fennel slaw

This tender chicken has a sweet/tangy glaze that pairs perfectly with a refreshing salad on the side. A whole-grain dish of farro, sorghum, or brown rice tossed with fresh herbs and a squeeze of lemon might be nice, too.

Baja-Style Shrimp Taos w/ Chipotle Crema

Baja Shrimp Taco Recipe

The star of this recipe is the Chipotle Lime Crema that gets spooned over cooked shrimp under a heap of crunchy slaw. You may want to warm up homemade or canned pinto or black beans and embellish with a big spoonful of Mexican salsa.

Instant Pot Farro Risotto

This cozy, nourishing supper happens to be vegetarian, but you won’t miss the meat. Make it in the Instant Pot if you have one or on the stove top if you don’t (instructions are in the headnote of the recipe).

Cheese Fondue in a Roasted Pumpkin

This is one of the more unique recipes on the blog. I pull it out every October and it always earns raves at the table. Plunk the roasted pumpkin onto the table straight from the oven and let everyone have at it.
