Dinner, Thanksgiving, The Holidays

Seared Scallops with Cheesy Acorn Squash Mash

We’re in the thick of the holiday season and I couldn’t be more pumped to be around all of the holiday decor, pretty twinkly lights and Christmas trees everywhere—I love the holidays! I also obviously love holiday foods like cookies and cheesy appetizers and gingerbread everything. I’ve been sharing my fair share of sweet treats so I wanted to break the typical programming with something super savory and delicious. This Seared Scallops with Cheesy Acorn Squash Mash is just the thing to whip up for a special holiday dinner. Or just a regular weeknight meal since it’s not too difficult at all!

Fall, Quick and Easy, Scones & Muffins, Sides, Thanksgiving

This Jalapeño Cheddar Cornbread  has crispy edges, a super moist crumb, is very cheesy and spicy (thanks to the cheese, cornmeal and jalapeño), and a teeny bit sweet.

Serve it with your favorite cozy beef stew, vegan chili or pumpkin chili.
