Share This Post

Would healthier eating and cooking at home improve your Health + Happiness?  It is a constant struggle for me.  Check us out each week for our at home cooking adventures.  Recipes are rated on Yumminess, Healthiness, Complexity, Prep Time, Overall and anything else that makes sense.  

This Week’s Recipe –Butternut Squash and Veggie Bake with Tortilla Chips

Trial & Eater provides this week’s recipe ~ Butternut Squash and Veggie Bake with Tortilla Chips.

Trial and Eater is the first food blog I ever visited.  I like her mission.  “This site is documenting my journey of learning to cook, in hopes that it also helps inspire you to try something new and possibly make it a little less intimidating for you to get in the kitchen.”   I have made several of her recipes.  They the right amount of complexity for me and very good.  I like her writing style and her pictures.

The “Yikes”

Not a single Yikes.  Seriously!

The “Yays”

Simple and quick to make.  Easy to follow.  Lots of flexibility.  I made it while chatting with a friend.  Michaella continued to offer to help but it was so simple, no assistance needed.  Before we knew it my entree was ready and time to get steaks on the grill for Michaella and Dean.  Yay, another keeper!

Lessons Learned

I had fun with flexibility on this one.  I put it over rice with side of mixed greens and topped with avocado and homemade salsa.  Loved it!  Meat eaters in the house thought it was the perfect side for their steaks.  We enjoyed as leftovers for lunch and also used as a dip.

Summing It Up

Again, this is a keeper — quick, easy, yummy and full of flexibility.  Trial and Eater is also a keeper.  You will definitely see more recipes from the vegetarian friendly blog.

Do you have a recipe to recommend or a story to share?  Send it my way.  I am excited to try to new things and share here each week(ish).
