Roasted Butternut with Herb Oil and Goat Cheese



Last weekend we went to Abuela and Abuelo's house out on the Eastern Shore. Dinner at their house is always a culinary adventure. My MIL couldn't wait for me to try this Roasted Butternut with Herb Oil and Goat Cheese recipe from her Bon Appetit magazine. I was hooked after the first bite and now this must-have dish has become my new side dish obsession! It's wicked easy to make, bold in flavor, and looks gorgeous. 


The squash took about an hour to roast and then she halved it, scraped out the seeds, scooped the 
squash into a serving dish, tossed with remaining ingredients, and BOOM it was done! 

Of course, she roasted an extra squash that she wrapped in tinfoil so I could take it back home and make again.


GNG Tip: You can roast the squash and make the herb oil a day in advance. Store the whole roasted squash in the fridge until you're ready to throw it all together, scoop it into a serving dish, reheat in the oven, and then prepare. I just did this for my brother-in-law Andrew's graduation dinner, and it immensely cut down on production time in the kitchen so I was able to enjoy all the day's festivities.

Moe's Famous Queso (Copycat Recipe)

After my dad retired from over 40 years of paper mill management, he did a short stint working at Moe's Southwest Grill before he and my mom moved down here to Maryland. After working a shift, he would often bring home Moe's famous queso and heat up their fresh tortilla chips in the microwave. I started craving Moe's queso, this unique white cheese dip packed an addicting heat that I had never had at any other Mexican restaurant. I started searching the web looking for the best copycat recipe and found the closest replica at Seeded at the Table. I think it's right on the money!

Here are my go-to recipes for guacamole and restaurant style salsa.

Lemon Rosemary Marinated Grilled Halibut

Bobby Flay's Lemon Rosemary Marinated Grilled Halibut recipe came highly recommended from my soccer friend Little Lisa. She has very good taste in EVERYTHING so I knew I had to try it after she raved one night before stepping out on the field. Easy to make and bursting with flavor, this fresh fish dish is a keeper!

Whole Foods Cracklin' Cauliflower

Whole Foods opened up across the street from our neighborhood. Like, literally, across the street. It has been a long time coming and highly anticipated, so when they finally opened their doors, I went THREE times on the first day! The ever-changing salad bar is our bank account's downfall. Every day at noon it keeps calling my name, taunting me with quick, easy, and healthy options for lunch when I'm hangry.  

I always get a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a bigger receipt than I had hoped for. So, I decided that I would start making batches of these sides in my own kitchen so that I could enjoy them all week long without the guilt. You can purchase the Whole Foods Market Cookbook on Amazon!

First up, one of my absolute favorites, the Indian inspired Cracklin' Cauliflower! It's so good that I recommend making at least a double batch!
