Stuffed Acorn Squash

It’s fall, so like the “basic” that I am, I’m in complete weather-heaven. The breeze has finally picked up. The air is crisp. Booties and boots get dusted off and finally cover these poorly manicured toes. (A pregnant belly is not conducive to a lot a of polish changes.) On top of that, all my favorite flavors await me in every recipe I find. For this one, the first in a while I’ll admit, it was a bit a of trial and error but I think I’ve gotten it down to share.

Slow Cooker Stuffed Peppers

New Year’s Resolution One (Cook more often) plus New Year’s Resolution Two (Have more sit-down family dinners) divided by New Year’s Resolution Three (Do little pieces of house work each night so a whole Saturday doesn’t get wasted with chores) equals SLOW COOKER MEALS FOR DAYS! With a solid arsenal of slow-cooker recipes, my time in the evening isn’t spent fumbling around in the kitchen with a toddler pulling on my pants. Instead we’re in the master bedroom. Folding clothes. Makes a world of difference!

Pasta-less Eggplant Lasagna

I know, I know. Who wants lasagna without pasta? “Give me #allthecarbs,” etc… I get it. But, in the interest of attempting to make healthier decisions, we’re shaking things up over here at House of Frost.

Last week, it was a delicious Mexican quinoa and this week it’s eggplant lasagna! I thought it would be a fun experiment to sneak some veggies into a meal without mentioning it to Bear… So, that’s exactly what I did! I substituted strips of eggplant for the lasagna noodles and didn’t change anything else. How did it go? What’s the recipe? Read on to see…
