1. Lemon Herb Roasted Potatoes

My friend in the East Coast just messaged and told me that they just had the first snow of the season. It’s mid-October and the rest of the country is definitely cooling down, except Southern California, where we are still “enjoying” temperatures in the 80’s.

2. Balsamic Cream Chicken with Mushrooms

I have spent many nights wondering how I was possibly going to make chicken a different way– for some, chicken can be so boring but it doesn’t have to be! This is one of my favorite chicken recipes…it’s my version of Rachel Ray’s Chicken with Wild Mushrooms in a Balsamic Cream Sauce but I do mine with more sauce and mushrooms that are easier to find. It’s really easy to make and so delicious!

5. Roasted Mushrooms In A Browned Butter Garlic Sauce

Mushrooms have to be one of my favourite foods and they make for some of the best side dishes like these roasted mushrooms in a browned butter, garlic and thyme sauce! This recipe is super easy, you just roast the mushrooms, brown some butter, throw in the garlic and thyme and then toss the roasted mushrooms in the sauce! You really can’t go wrong with mushrooms, garlic and butter and browning the butter only makes things better with the slightly nutty flavour and aroma that comes from browning it. These roasted mushrooms in a browned butter, garlic and thyme sauce are a great side for any meal!
