Happy 2017! This is my first post for the new year, using ingredients currently available in the market, with this healthy, delicious Winter Lentil Salad! The salad has lentils, roasted butternut squash, red onions, cara cara oranges, baby kale, cilantro, mint, parsley, hazelnuts, all coated in red wine vinegar, olive oil, s&p. The butternut squash was tossed with cardamom, smoked paprika, ancho chile, salt and is so flavorful! I ate some as soon as they came out of the oven ! But then the drizzle on the top takes this salad to the next level! It’s a herbed yogurt drizzle that has greek yogurt, sour cream, lime juice, cilantro, parsley, garlic and salt.Thankfully I made a bulk portion so I can enjoy it for the next couple of days! #feedfeed #contest #sunbasket

Few more days left to ring in the New Year! This year has gone by too quickly! So much to contemplate about and at the same time look forward to what the new year brings in store! I am working on my last blog post of the year 2016 with two recipes in one! One of them is this super delicious and chic appetizer - Savory bites with Goat Cheese and @thejamlab's Blood Orange and RosemaryMarmalade! The savory cookies have fresh rosemary and thyme and perfectly complement the tangy goat cheese and slightly bitter sweet marmalade! You could use any savory jam or marmalade or a pepper jelly as well ! Make these bite size hor d'oeuvres for your guests and bring in the new year with a bang !

It was my first time making fresh pasta dough! I don't know why I have been intimidated by it for so long but I finally let that feeling go this weekend! Who knew it would be soooo easy to put it together?! No complications like baking, and such a fun process! I made spaghetti and tagliatelle as well along with the ravioli and had a blast! Thanks for the inspiration from @displacedhousewife @chezlarae and @beyondsweetandsavory who make fresh pasta quite often!
