December 18, 2014

I’ve been enjoying turnips lately. I’ve made them into fries, added them to soup, and even a salad. Since turnips are a good alternative to potatoes, I decided to try mashing them. And I included a new-to-me vegetable in the recipe, because…why not? Everyone say hello to…

Butternut and Bison (!) Casserole

October 6, 2014

I’ve eaten bison before, at restaurants. I love a bison burger. But I’ve never cooked with it. That’s why, when I saw bison during a trip to Costco with my friend Jen, I snatched some up.
