Roasted Butternut Squash Chopped Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing

I’m glad you were all so intrigued by Monday’s carrot butter recipe! Sarah brought up a good point – that carrots in a sweet recipe aren’t that foreign of a concept after all… just think of carrot cake. Duh! Why didn’t I think of that? So none of you are allowed to be skeptical of carrot butter any more. Carrot cake in vegan dip form! :)

Today, though, we’ve still got some orange in our food, but it’s not cake (or even carrots). It’s a chopped salad with roasted butternut squash! Mmmm.

Peach Guacamole

Peach Guacamole

Well friends, it’s peach season, and that means I, like every other food blogger, am adding peaches to everything.

But this peach guacamole is not just my attempt to be a bandwagon peach lover; I’ve actually been saving this recipe on my “to-cook” (well… to-mash) list for quite some time. And when the first little Utah peaches appeared in my farm box last week, I knew the time had come.

A few months ago at work, we got on the topic of my friend’s ex-girlfriend. Or maybe we were talking about food (we usually are). In any case, he mentioned that he didn’t like this ex-girlfriend much, but that she made this awesome peach guacamole – just regular guacamole with chunks of peach mixed in.

I had one of those culinary moments (they happen so often) where my mind just explodes. Whaaaat, peaches in guacamole?! I didn’t know you could dooooo that.

Spicy Avocado and White Bean Wraps (Vegan)

We just got back from the most wonderful holiday weekend. Our friends Bill and Aspen got married at the Glasbern Inn in Pennsylvania farm country, and it was truly one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever been to. They had an outdoor patio ceremony in front of scenic rolling hills, complete with a herd of cows grazing in the distance! I can’t get over how gorgeous the whole weekend was, and how happy they are together. Take me back!

Well fine, it’s nice to be home, too, as we’ve had quite the travel schedule lately. I don’t have another cross-country flight for the next ten days, so I’m trying to get back on a normal schedule in the meantime. Starting with these delicious avocado and white bean wraps!

If I had a restaurant, these wraps would be on the lunch menu. THAT is how much I love them.
