I love a good BBQ, but grilling only vegetables and fruits can sometimes get bait boring, so I created these delicious (And I’m not saying that because I made them, but because they really are, I couldn’t stop eating them) Brown Rice Miso Squash – Quinoa Patties.

My children exuberantly ran ahead of me, declaring each pumpkin they touched “the one!” I reminded them that I would only put their final final selections in the wagon, as they steered me over to pumpkins half my size. It didn’t matter. I must have lifted over twenty pumpkins into and out of our wagon, behemoths of gourds, as I began to break a sweat, my hair sticking to my neck and my hands coated in dust.

I needed to head out to the store to stock up for a week of recipe making/photographing and instead, I sat frozen at the dining room table thinking through all the things I needed to get done. Finally, with tears in my eyes, I found my husband and asked for a hug (at which point I started bawling.) He, with a gift for words, talked me through everything and calmed me down (one of the many reasons I’m so grateful to have him in my life). While I still have quite a few looming deadlines, he suggested I start planning for all the things I want to do once some of these projects are out the door. So, I did. In addition to coping with the deadlines and stress, I’ve been trying to focus on eating a bit better (because pizza) and also start planning for when we don’t have gobs of cookbook food stashed in the refrigerator.

I love that they detail the process of recipe development and not just, “Hey, here’s a recipe! It tastes good! Enjoy!” While baking is more of a science than cooking, there is still a science to cooking and it’s interesting to read exactly why frozen peas are better than fresh for most recipes or how different types of potatoes result in different textures in gratins.
