Roasted Corn Pudding in Acorn Squash ala Heidi
In case you haven't heard of her, Heidi Swanson writes the most amazing recipe journal called 101cookbooks.com. I've been a vegetarian since I was 15, and after my parents got over the shock of it, mom still didn't really know how to cook for a vegetarian. Since cooking is creative, I didn't mind improvising, but in the last year, I've seen just how robust a vegetarian diet can be, thanks in part to Heidi.
My fellow vegetarian, Jessie (also a master chef and all around creative guru) turned me on to Heidi's site where she focuses "primarily on natural, whole foods and ingredients - vegetarian recipes that are good for you and for the planet."
Does it get any better than that? Well, it does, actually. Just check out this *lovely* recipe that will make you fall in love with fall all over again.

I also LOVE her Firecracker Cornbread for both Summer and Fall.
And her she offers 3 different ways to Toast Pumpkin Seeds...perfect for those left-overs from the Acorn Squash.
Heidi also does the most DELICIOUS Roasted Pumpkin Salad with shallots...it just tastes like Fall.
