I'm always on the lookout for a good new recipe and can't help but get on the spaghetti squash band wagon. Oh my they're tasty! This recipe has just the right amount of heat without being spicy. And it will fill your belly on a cold winter night.
Approximately 8 servings

I've been doing a lot of curriculum planning for my three different grade levels of foods classes. The grade 11s and 12s are currently working on a yeast module and I wanted something more than buns and sandwich bread for them. I came across this recipe on Smitten Kitchen (one of my favorite food bloggers) and I knew I needed to try it before I let my students tackle it. The recipe is a two dayer outside of the classroom, but will be a three dayer for my students, so that will work out well for my their class. The loaf didn't rise as much as I was hoping but that is due to the fact that I used traditional yeast (which I always have in my fridge) and not quick rise yeast. Nevertheless, the loaf is beautiful and my house smells AMAZING!

It was a cold snowy weekend and I had a hankering for warm creamy soup. The soup might scare off some people thinking it will be too sweet, but its actually a great balance between sweet and savory. And I know the granola in soup seems weird but it was AMAZING, I actually added more to my bowl than just a garnish!

Muffins are such an easy snack you see them everywhere from your local coffee shop to hospital vending machines. Some muffins are so sweet they're really just a cupcake without the frosting and a bit of fruit hidden inside.
Being a teacher I go to quite a few meetings where snacks are provided, and whenever lemon poppy seed muffins are an option they're the first to go. There are a million different versions of lemon poppy seed recipes, my adaptation is subtly lemon and refreshingly sweet without being a cupcake.
Makes 12-16 muffins

My students made these for their Vegetable and Fruit module. They were all pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to roast veggies and make such a flavourful snack. This would also make a great appetizer for your next party...it would be a good self assembly line too.
