Ready for a pot of chili? It’s finally Fall, and it’s time to start cooking hearty, warming meals like chili. It’s also Pumpkin Spice season, and everybody is loving cinnamon, allspice, cloves, and the flavors of pumpkin. For a fun change, I make a chili with cubed Japanese pumpkin, also known as Kabocha, and sprinkle in some warm pumpkin spices with the chili powder. It’s a wonderful twist on chili, and goes really well with a fresh pan of cornbread.

If your go-to salad in summer is a potato or pasta salad, you need to try a whole grain salad. Light but hearty, these salads are easy to make and keep well, with none of the sogginess of a pasta salad that’s been around for more than a day!
I was a guest chef on Twin Cities Live, demonstrating two fun recipes for Salad Rolls- stuffing healthy salads into rice wrappers for light and easy finger food. Hosts Ben Lieber and Leah McLean enjoyed learing how to moisten and roll their own salad rolls.
One of the many delicious foods served at RLP is the delicious salsa, served and breakfast and lunch to spoon over everything from eggs to soups. My favorites are the Salsa Macha, Three Chile Salsa, and Salsa Mexicana. I was thrilled when I asked Chef Reyna Venergas to share the recipes for a segment on Twin Cities Live, and she happily complied.

I was on TCL to show off two of my favorite sweetcorn dishes, Elotes Rice Salad, and a Corn and Black Bean Salsa. I demonstrated the easiest way to cut the corn kernels from the cob, and how to saute corn until it’s caramelized and toasty.
