Otherwise known as the best fall breakfast ever. EVER!

Oh my gosh.

I cannot say enough amazing things about these baked pumpkin cheesecake oats.

pumpkin oats

I realize they don’t look that special. And yes, I already rave about my pumpkin pie steel cut oatmeal. But this… this takes all the (oatmeal) cake. The steel cut oats are a creamy, hot bowl of pumpkin pie oats. This baked version is chewy and can be served warm, room temperature or even cold. It’s not creamy.

And I say “oatmeal cake” because I use my traditional baked oatmeal recipe for this – yes, that one! – and I’ve called it oatmeal cake for years. It is super chewy and decadent for oatmeal. And it tastes like a delicious oatmeal cake!

pumpkin oats with mascarpone cheese

This is like that, but with pumpkin. And a mascarpone cheese swirl. And toasted pecans. Plus, allll the cinnamon. Maybe even a drizzle of cream. 

This

is

unreal. 

I need you to make it this weekend! 

pumpkin cheesecake baked oatmeal

Baked oatmeal is one of my favorite things to make. It’s perfect for brunch, for a big family, for meal prepping for the week, pretty much anything. I love how well it reheats. You can top it with just about anything: seasonal fruit, nuts, seeds, nut butter, coconut – options are endless! It really is so customizable and delicious.

I love the texture and chew of baked oatmeal. I’ve seen many blended baked oat recipes on instagram and while they do look good, I prefer a heartier, chewy texture to my baked oatmeal. I want it to have that texture, especially when I’m making a large batch of it. 

And it’s hard to believe that I haven’t made a pumpkin version yet, but here we are. So this is what I do!

pumpkin cheesecake baked oatmeal

I add a scoop of pumpkin to my baked oatmeal recipe along with some pumpkin spice. I am notorious for loving pumpkin but NOT loving the spice that goes along with it. So I add what I find to be minimal spice. If you love the “spice” part of pumpkin, go ahead and add an extra teaspoon or so of spice.

Then, I stir together some softened mascarpone cheese with honey. Or maple syrup. Or brown sugar! Basically, whatever sweetener you have on hand, and just a small touch of it. This makes our cheesecake flavor. You could use regular softened cream cheese too, I just love mascarpone. 

I dollop the mascarpone cheese right on top of the oatmeal. When it bakes, it sinks down into the oats. It is PERFECT. 

Finally, I add a little cinnamon on top. A big handful of toasted pecans. I scoop and serve, then add a little drizzle of cream. Optional of course, but really takes it over the top.  (more…)

Homestyle Egg Noodles

Flour + eggs + water + salt. ♡

Chances are you already have everything needed to make a batch of my favorite homestyle egg noodles!

This simple recipe is inspired by the bags of Reames egg noodles that we always used to keep stocked in our freezer growing up, ready to toss into a simmering pot of chicken noodle soup or a quick tuna casserole at a moment’s notice. But while I’m usually down for a good freezer-shortcut, I’m here today to try and convince that it is one-million percent worth it try making homemade egg noodles from scratch instead.

First off, this egg noodle recipe is sooo simple that it’s practically foolproof, making it a fun project for even for some of the youngest sous-chefs in your kitchen. All you need are 4 basic ingredients, 15 minutes of total prep time, and zero fancy equipment (just a basic rolling pin and a pizza cutter). Just stir the dough together and give it a quick knead by hand, roll it out to be as thick-and-chewy or melt-in-your-mouth-thin that you prefer, use a pizza cutter (or a knife) to slice the dough into your desired size of strips or shapes…and voila! A delicious batch of homemade noodles will be yours to enjoy in no time.

These homemade egg noodles would taste wonderful in any number of soups, stews, sautés, casseroles, stroganoffs and more. Or if you happen to be craving some retro buttered noodle, I’m telling you, a quick toss of browned butter, Parmesan and black pepper can’t go wrong. Truly, the fresh flavor and soft texture that these homemade noodles bring to any dish is genuinely worth the extra effort if you have 15 minutes to spare. So the next time you’re tempted to reach for a bag of frozen noodles, grab your rolling pin instead and let’s make a quick batch from scratch together!

This roasted sweet potato and arugula salad recipe features some of my favorite fall flavors and always tastes so delicious this time of year.

Things are finally (fi-na-lly!) cooling off here in Barcelona this week after the summer’s unrelenting heat wave, which of course instantly has me craving all of my nostalgic fall faves…including this yummy roasted sweet potato and arugula salad. ♡

It’s a simple one that you could easily make anytime of year. But the combination of roasted potatoes, tart dried cranberries and toasted pecans always feels so quintessentially “fall” to me. And when combined with fresh peppery arugula, creamy avocado, tangy goat cheese (or whatever cheese you love best), and a zippy lemon dressing, this salad hits the perfect balance between cozy and hearty yet still fresh and light, which feels just perfect for these sometimes-warm, sometimes-cool days we’re enjoying right now as we move into the new season ahead.

Here in our house, we most often serve this as an entrée salad, but it would also make a lovely side dish for a dinner or holiday meal if you’d like. And if you feel like adding in an extra protein, some grilled chicken or bacon would be delicious mixed in too.

Let’s make some salad together!

I would happily attend a Thanksgiving feast centered entirely around pies (Grandma, are you listening?). Away with the cranberry sauce that still shows the lines from the can, out with the impossibly dry turkey, and farewell to 1960s casseroles. Instead, I’m welcoming pies, pies, and more pies. From the have-to-have-them classics like apple and pecan pies to modern twists like an apple-pecan hybrid, [this Thanksgiving](https://food52.com/blog/26724-resident-thanksgiving-menu-2021, I’m putting dessert first.

Most families serve stuffing (or dressing) for Thanksgiving, and those who do will insist that theirs is the best. That’s because there are an endless number of ways to make stuffing. First, the bread. Are you using sourdough, cornbread, country white, or a boxed mix (hey, no judgment here)? And then for the mix-ins: Are you adding sausage or keeping it vegetarian-friendly with mushrooms? We even took an unbiased approach to find the best Thanksgiving stuffing recipe–for the record, Absolute Best Test columnist Ella Quittner found that the best bread is cornbread for “a soft, plush texture beneath a crispy top crust.” As for the cooking method, go for a deep-dish bake followed by a quick broil for the best texture.

Looking for even more Thanksgiving stuffing recipes? Here’s a handful that’ll complete your feast.
