Sweedish Cardamom Rolls

I meant to have this up yesterday in case you had a little free time and felt like doing some baking today.  Opps.  I haven't got a good excuse for you.  I simply distract myself and don't get things done.  Lack of focus I think they call it.  Or focusing on too many things, which I think is my affliction.  Back to the recipe.  Focus Maggie, focus.

Butternut Squash, Spinach and Goat Cheese Pizza

I really like.  No let me start again.  I LOVE butternut squash.  After all those years of not eating squash unless it was baked with butter and brown sugar and now I can't get enough.  Maybe it is the color.  Orange is one of my favorite colors after all!  I am game to try just about any recipe with butternut squash in it and when I came across this on Epicurious I had to give it a shot.  Squash, spinach, goat cheese and onions on a pizza - how could I go wrong?  Though a little bit time consuming I think this will make several repeat appearances!

Buttermilk Biscuits with Green Onions

Who doesn't love a buttery flakey biscuit?  These are fantastic with plain old scrambled eggs and equally delicious dunked into soup.  And I can only imagine how great they would be as the topper on a chicken pie.  Yummmmm.

Pad Thai with Tofu


I've always wanted to make Pad Thai at home.  I make the curries after all so why not give Pad Thai a try?  There was a great article on Thai food in last month's Bon Appetit.  So I decided to go for it.  Unfortunately I couldn't find all of the ingredients but I did the best with what I could find and I'll just have to keep on the lookout for the rest next time I am near an Asian grocery.  The recipe did call for shrimp which is never hard to find, I just don't care for it so I left it out.  I also opted to leave out the ground dried chiles and stirred in my favorite ground chile and garlic paste as I was eating it.  To see the real recipe head over to Bon Appetit.
