It’s the end of October and I have officially been pumpkin & squashed out. I always look forward to this season so I can get into all the comfort food but I can’t help but miss that fresh taste of summer. This salad recipe I found on The Kitchn looked too good to resist, even around this time of year.
I remember when I used to work in the restaurant industry, there used to always be a carbonara dish under the pasta section. I knew it had bacon (or a pork of some sort) and it always looked deliciously creamy–which is why I think I avoided it for so long. To my surprise, there is no cream involved at all. Check out this excellent Pasta Carbonara recipe I found on Epicurious this week.
If you’re ever looking for a crowd pleasing dish that looks like it took you forever, but actually only took you a few minutes to prep, then this is the dish for you.

So today I’ve decided to share this amazing Thai Green Curry recipe from Bon Appetit.
