Creamy Havarti Pasta with Mushrooms and Cauliflower

Creamy Havarti Pasta with Mushrooms and Cauliflower

The recipe that I am excited to share today is a creamy Roth Chipotle Havarti pasta with fried cauliflower, mushrooms, red pepper, and tomatoes. The kind folks at Roth Cheese sent me over some of their cheeses to try and I was particularly fond of their Chipotle Havarti.

Maple Walnut Apple Crisp with Raisins

People, if you like gin and tonic, you need to order a bottle pronto, because it is a game changer.

I woke up craving guacamole. Yesterday for lunch, I shoveled this delicious guacamole with a pineapple into my mouth standing in the kitchen, trying to type an email from my phone. I added some pineapple, which gives it a subtle sweetness that is incredible. The pineapple and the garlic create this wonderful flavor combination, and then with a dash of lime and salt, it all really comes together.
