Turkey and White Bean Chili // @HealthyDelish

This meaty turkey and white bean chili and spicy cornbread have a secret – both have pureed vegetables hidden inside! This post was sponsored by Green Giant® Veggie Blend-Ins™.

Homemade Pumpkin Ravioli

homemade pumpkin ravioli in arribatta from @HealthyDelish

Delicious pumpkin ravioli made entirely by hand – no special tools required!  It’s been a while since I’ve made homemade pasta and I was feeling ambitious this weekend so I thought I’d do a little tutorial. Nothing says “this meal was made with love” quite like fresh pasta, but it’s surprisingly easy to make! Although […]

I thought I was headed to Morocco with this recipe, but I took a wrong turn somewhere along the way and ended up somewhere closer to India. No matter, it was still delicious even if it wasn’t traditional. This recipe takes a little longer than most of my dinners, but it’s mostly inactive time. You probably won’t want to make it on a weeknight unless you don’t mind eating late (I’m ready for dinner at 5:30… which doesn’t usually work out well since I don’t get home until closer to 6!), but it’s the kind of recipe that can easily be made ahead of time and reheated when you’re ready for it. I made this on a Sunday with plans to eat it on Tuesday, and it was so nice to come home and not have to worry about cooking. I just moved the pot from the fridge to the stove and, in the time it took to boil some rice, dinner was ready.

Do you have a few hours with nowhere to go? Grab your biggest pot and make this Bolognese – you’ll be glad you did!

I wish I had a story to tell you about this recipe, but I really don’t. I made it last Saturday, which was rainy and cold. We stayed in and let it simmer all afternoon while we did work around the house – Bolognese is simple to make, but it needs to cook for a few hours in order to thicken up and let the flavors develop. It smelled absolutely amazing while it cooked; we kept wandering into the kitchen to check up on it. It felt like an eternity had passed by the time we sat down to eat, but it was well worth it.
