Butternut Squash Risotto

Butternut Squash Risotto from Order in the KitchenI know, I know, I keep doing this to you.  I keep posting Risotto under the “Fee SIMPLE Friday” category and you probably think I’m messing with you.  But I’m not.  This truly is the simplest little recipe ever, thanks to the Cuisinart Pressure Cooker.  You can make risotto that is a superb texture, with a bite and a creaminess all at once.  It does exactly what risotto is supposed to: it gets dolloped on the plate and then spreads out in a warm welcoming way, saying “you just made a quick risotto without all the painstaking work.”  I mean just look at it!  It looks exactly the way it would look if you had made it the traditional way.  And the best part?  It tastes like it too!  It took me about 10 minutes total and dinner was served!  I’m in love.

“Hello World”! Airplane Sugar Cookies for Baby’s Grand Adventure!

Order in the Kitchen's "Hello World" Airplane Sugar Cookies for Baby's Grand Adventure Virtual Baby ShowerThese “Hello World” sugar cookies came about thanks to my amazing blogging bestie Phi, who invited me to participate in a virtual baby shower for another incredible blogger, Chelsea.  Chelsea’s blog is This Grand Adventure (which I love…title, blog, everything).  Phi suggested that the theme be Baby’s Grand Adventure, which, let’s be serious, is probably the cutest thing ever.  My mind was reeling with cute ideas and themes and basically an explosion of happiness that I was finally invited to participate in a virtual baby shower because I’ve never done one but the idea of them literally makes my heart want to explode out of my chest because it’s just SO.CUTE.

Pumpkin Spice Pancakes with Cranberry Compote and Maple Syrup

Order in the Kitchen Pumpkin Pancakes with Cranberry Compote

Oh y’all I have to tell you about these pancakes AND this compote.  I have never made pancakes from scratch before…sure, I’ve eaten plenty but it’s never top of my list of things to do because I’m more of a waffle girl.  And crunchy waffles at that…I like them really crispy so they hold up well under heaps of maple syrup.  I decided to try pancakes because I had contemplated doing a pumpkin pie french toast, but then a good friend of mine just posted something similar and I wanted to try something a bit different.  Plus I had already made pumpkin waffles, so this just seemed like a natural next step.

This Week on the Docket

Wow y’all…I have SO much to tell you about this week! It started out a little bit crazy. I ran to my mom’s house on Sunday because I agreed to run a half-marathon with my co-worker/friend Jennifer after we had been in a mediation for 10 hours. Yea. It seemed like a good idea at the time. But now I’m in training and I’m all like “whyyyy?” So anyway, I had to run 5 miles on Sunday according to the training schedule, and my mom’s apartment is 5.8 miles from my apartment so I decided that I would just run to her place, and then do some recipe development there. I’ve done the last couple of recipes at her place because she has a bigger kitchen and it’s more fun to have her around while I’m cooking. I ran across (literally) this gem on my way there and just had to stop and snap a photo.10735297_862926730405488_132175888_n (more…)

Dark Chocolate Bark with Pomegranate and Pistachio

Dark Chocolate Bark with Pomegranate and Pistachio from Order in the KitchenI’m not sure if you guys are noticing a theme here.  But I’m pretty into pomegranates this fall. This isn’t really a new thing.  I’ve been into pomegranates for awhile, but basically what happened was I bought ONE to make this Quinoa Salad and then I just couldn’t get enough so I had to throw them in the next fall salad, and then use them again for a sweet treat.  And I still have more left in the fridge.  Help me.

Present Sense Impressions: Fall Flavors

Order in the Kitchen Present Sense Impressions

Y’all it’s Fall.  Like officially!!! I know this because there are like thousands of leaves all over the ground and I finally got to wear scarves this week.  I know I should probably relax…everyone in the food blogging world basically flips out over Fall stuff but honestly I can totally see why.  Everyone around me is posting the most awesome Fall recipes out there.  I’m going to share some of my favorites here but please chime in in the comments if you think I’ve forgotten something particularly awesome, or if you want me to come check out a recipe of yours!

Pumpkin Soup with Tandoori Pepitas

Pumpkin Soup with Tandoori Pepitas!So, I made you guys a pumpkin soup this weekend… but not because I wanted to make you a pumpkin soup.  If I’m being honest here (which I always am), I’ll tell you that the reason I made this soup is because I was dying to make these Tandoori Pepitas again, and I didn’t want to buy pumpkin seeds because I wanted to use the real thing.  And of course if I’m going to use the pumpkin seeds, I need to use the pumpkin itself right?  Otherwise that would be a waste.   (more…)

This Week on “The Docket”

frozen yogurt

This week was kind of a strange one, in that it started out with eating fro-yo for dinner last Sunday night.  Although I love fro-yo, I have to say I think this is the only time in my life that I’ve actually had ice cream for dinner.  And I’m 28 years old.  Later that evening, I randomly decided to totally re-vamp my Pinterest, and make boards with Order in the Kitchen recipes so that people can find them a bit more easily.  I hope you find this to be a welcome change, and I am eager to hear what my jury thinks of these little tweaks (as well as the major ones I made on the blog last week).

Butternut Bites

Butternut Squash Bites from Order in the KitchenGood morning y’all!  Today’s Fee SIMPLE Friday is brought to you by butternut squash.  Basically I’m obsessed with it.  I think butternut squash may be the new pumpkin.  Maybe.  I don’t know, I love pumpkin too, so it’s hard for me to choose one over the other but if anyone was “sponsoring” my posts this Fall, it would be the butternut squash.
