Kabocha Curry with Spinach, Chickpeas, & Farro

Kabocha Curry with Spinach, Chickpeas, & Farro

Friends. I have things I want to tell you about. Big things. So major that I’ve been staring at these photos for over a week, unable to find common ground between all the news I want to share and this unexciting (albeit delicious) bowl of curry. And that’s why half my news will have to wait. Until I make a cake. One that may involve booze and pink frosting.

The other half, I’ll share now.

Curry-Spiced Kabocha Gnocchi with Roasted Cauliflower & Sriracha-Coconut Crème Fraîche

Curry-Spiced Kabocha Gnocchi with Roasted Cauliflower & Sriracha-Coconut Crème Fraîche

There are too many words in this post title. I’ve made peace with that fact. (It’s just that THEY’RE ALL IMPORTANT, you know? [P.S. I compromised and left “cilantro” out of the title. But that’s in there too, guys. And it’s important. I also pan-fried the gnocchi, but I think the photos say that clearly enough. Plus you regular readers know I ALWAYS pan-fry my gnocchi and ravioli, so that’s probably just assumed at this point. Do you like it when parenthetical text makes up most of a paragraph? I do. It’s kind of like the sidebar of the blog world.])

Buttermilk-Glazed Kabocha Doughnuts with Candied Thyme

Buttermilk-Glazed Kabocha Doughnuts with Candied Thyme

Oh hey.

Sooo…elephant in the room: I kind of fell off the blog radar. I didn’t mean for it to happen, but my days just got all sorts of busy all at once. Job busyness. Life busyness. Before I knew it, a month went by. I’m still climbing out from under a pile of emails. I am terrified of what my feedly looks like. But I’m back, and I missed you guys! Please accept my apology. It comes with mini doughnuts.

Einkorn Pasta with Zucchini & Herb Sauce

Pasta with Zucchini & Herb Sauce

So guess what, guys. For the first time ever, I’m remaking a recipe that’s already appeared on this blog. The SECOND recipe, in fact. That feels like some sort of milestone. It isn’t really quantifiable like a one year anniversary or a 100th post, but it still seems rather special. In the sense that I feel I’ve grown enough as a photographer and a writer to re-pay homage to a dish, because I believe I can do it more justice now. Or something like that. Anyway. Let’s talk about sauce. Made from zucchini!

Pumpkin Gnocchi with Sage Brown Butter & Feta

As I begin to write this post (which appears on the heels of homemade nutella, said nutella crammed inside doughnut muffins, the delicious love child of ravioli and perogies, and absurdly sticky cinnamon buns), I feel compelled to emit a little bit of maniacal laughter. This is because of a chat I had with a far-away friend the other week, who said to me in the midst of our conversation: “Oh, do you know what C said to me the other day? He asked if you were fat!” As I thought about this later, browsing through my previous posts, I had to giggle a little. If you only had this blog as a guide to my diet, you’d have to assume that I subsist primarily on pasta, ice cream, and soda/booze. Which isn’t exactly UNtrue, I just tend to filter out the boring healthy stuff. Not that healthy food is inherently boring, but my versions kind of are. Beet breakfast wraps. Quinoa with soy sauce and peas. Do you really want to see these things? Maybe you do. But there’s no time! Because right now, I have pumpkin freakin’ gnocchi, all pan-fried up in some butter and covered with herbs and cheese. And it’s stupid good. Your pants will forgive you. Mwahahahaha.
