{FSC Time Machine} Fall Recipes 2010

{Rhinebeck Sheep & Wool Festival, 2010}

This blog went public in July of last year with Alexis, Amanda, Leslie & Sarah. A lot has changed since then but I don’t want those early posts to go unnoticed now that we have a larger readership. Today I am dedicating the post to fall recipes & event-recaps from September & October 2010.

Let’s hop in our FSC Time Machine and take a look at some goodies- Enjoy! -Christina

{Nick & Britin Foster, All Good Bakers, October 2010}

First up, let’s start with our very first interview with FSC’s favorite bakers- Nick & Britin Foster of All Good Bakers! Things have changed quiet a lot for the pair (and FSC) since this piece was published!

Next up, I give you tips for roasting ridged squashes, such as a carnival squash (don’t peel them!), with a recipe for Gluten-Free Autumn Squash muffin!

We dedicated an entire week to APPLE RECIPES: Leslie gives you her favorite quick sauteed apples w/ oatmeal recipe, Sarah shares her adventures in apple butter, Alexis discusses her love for Bittman’s pancake recipe, Amanda has a yummy adaptation for apple pancakes from a boxed mix and I show you 4 ways to use apples: chips, juicing, in savory stuff like tacos and borscht soup!

Staying on the “theme week” concept we dedicated the week of Halloween week to the concept of “indulgences”; Alexis ponders the psychology & culture of eating indulgent foods within her own life, I explain how Miles’ food allergies has turned me into a binge-eating machine, Leslie shares her indulgent food secrets plus gives us an amazing Pumpkin & Chocolate Chip Bread recipe, Amanda shares her “go to” cake or cupcake frrosting: Peanut Butter and to continue the theme of peanut butter & chocolate Sarah has a recipe for Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cookies.

Next up, we have a popourri of great fall recipes including:

Leslie’s leftover chicken noodle soup,and curried carrot spread,

Amanda shares low-fat lasagna and a side dish of pan fried butternut squash & onion pancakes and low-fat Turkey Chili

I did a complete “how to” roast a chicken, beer can styte in your oven and a carrot, squash & coconut soup,

Sarah shared beet hummus,

and Alexis had two great recipes- curing kitchen boredom” w/shrimp stir-fry , a “travel-memory filled”  hearty Moroccan stew and an apple butternut squash soup.


To wrap us our trip back in time let me recap some events:

{Stroller as Apple Carrying Cart, Indian Ladders U-Pick Trip, 2010}

Sarah & I went to the very popular Empty Bowls event in Troy (its happening again in 2012),

Sarah & Amanda ran their first full marathon- the Mohawk Hudson River Marathon

(and during the same race, a few paces in front of Sarah & Amanda was Mr. Mark Bittman. He featured my picture his Runner’s World blog- take a peek here!!!!)

and I visited my friend Cal Patch of Hodge Podge Farm at the NYS Sheep & Wool Festival in Rhinebeck.

and finally, I wrote a piece about my excitement and need for a grocery store in Downtown Troy as Sarah & I got to go on a super mini tour of Pioneer Market: Troy Food Coop before it opened…sadly its doors are already closed.

    This is a great recap – I love the idea of looking back to feature past recipes and growth of the blog and its participants, the swaps, etc. :) It’s nice to look back sometimes to let the changes of life grow on you and settle in.
