Gluten-Free Chestnut Cake with Beet Grape Sauce

Products for this post were provided by Melissa’s Produce.

It’s time for another Melissa’s Produce Challenge! This challenge is dubbed “Winter Wonderland” and features an array of delicious winter produce items from Melissa’s. San Diego Food Bloggers have been participating in these ‘Chopped-style” challenges for almost a year. Melissa’s Produce sends us a box of seasonal items and our challenge is to create a recipe using some of the ingredients. We kicked it up a notch this time and gave ourselves a real test by requiring all 7 (yes, 7) ingredients from our Melissa’s box to be used in two recipes – one savory and one sweet. We linked all our posts together with a link-up below so be sure to check them all out.

Butternut Squash & Potato Salad with Cranberry Pesto

This is my third Melissa’s Produce Challenge with the San Diego Food Bloggers! It should be my fourth but there was that whole giving birth thing that kind of got in the way of creating and posting a recipe from a mystery box of ingredients “Chopped”- style. I love these challenges. They force me to get my creative juices flowing and when the box arrives, the ingredients stare me down and dare me to use them in unconventional ways.

Thanksgiving Turkey with Herb Butter and GIVEAWAY

Thanksgiving Turkey with Herb Butter

This post was sponsored by OXO.

Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Last year I did a whole month of Thanksgiving recipes. This year, I’m covering the center of the feast – the TURKEY! There is a lot of controversy that surrounds this famed American tradition of turkey roasting. Stuff it? Baste it? Cook on a rack? In a bag? Roast all day at a low temperature or in high heat to sear in the juices? Then there’s wet brining, dry brining, oil or butter, the list goes on.
