FALL PASTA

fall pasta | designlovefest

i’m fairly certain we’re all coming off a long weekend of over indulging but we couldn’t wait to share this pasta with you. and, it has kale in it so it’s basically health food 🙂 this is so simple to make and the flavors are fantastic. the creamy texture of the squash, the saltiness of the prosciutto and the crunch of the kale make it the perfect dish to serve during these colder months. don’t skip the kale, i tried it without it and it’s not nearly as good! – joanie

what you’ll need:
serves 4
• 1/2 package linguine pasta
• 1 package prosciutto (sliced)
• 1 lemon
• 1 bunch of kale
• 1 cup shaved parmesan cheese
• 1 medium sized acorn squash
• olive oil
• salt and pepper to taste
• chili flakes

• preheat oven to 450 degrees. cut the acorn squash into slices and then into segments. place on a baking sheet with parchment paper and lay evenly. cover with olive oil and salt to taste. bake for 30-40 minutes, turning over halfway through. do not under cook the squash, it needs to be very tender.

• wash and de-stem the kale, pat dry. toss with a little olive oil, salt and red pepper flakes. you do not want the kale to be wet or it won’t crisp up. when the acorn squash is done, place the kale into the oven at 275 degrees and bake for 10 minutes, check often as they can bake quickly.

• in a large pot, cook the linguine to the packaging instructions. drain the pasta water and reserve one cup. add 3 tablespoons olive oil, the juice of one lemon, a pinch of chili flakes (more if you like the heat) 1 cup shaved parmesan cheese, the roasted acorn squash with the skins removed, a handful of kale, the prosciutto and salt to taste. stir until well mixed. serve while hot.

WREATH WORKSHOP 2016

after last year’s beautiful wreath workshops, we decided to make it a holiday tradition with this year, we went in a totally new direction though…

kristen transformed her studio into a fall wonderland for the students, with every single wreath ingredient you could think of. i love the warm colors, the textures, the feeeeeelings that the room gave me. we wanted to experiment this year and go for a light and bright wintery vibe, with unique wreath shapes and a step away from your average traditional wreath. kris created some amazing examples to inspire the students and then they had a few hours to snack, sip on mulled wine and get creative.

created a gorgeous spread, with autumn bruschetta (with a beautiful pomegranate mouse!), a pumpkin trifle with spiced mascarpone, and probably the best truffle cheese i’ve ever had. the food was a real hit, i love working with

kristen shares an office with hillary from (one of my favorite clothing brands) and they sold some of their cute tee shirts, embroidered denim and the high waisted corduroy pants i’m wearing above at the workshop.

and then we all got to just play. at first i was really intimidated to make one, but by the second class i got super into it! i’m happy i did, because now i have a cool wreath for my mantle. it was so fun walking around the classes and seeing the creations people came up with! i was so impressed with everyone.

and they were easy to make!! we started with a few branches and connected them with wire. and then just kept adding on and attaching with more wire. some people went with a linear wreath and hung it up with a string, and others went for the circle.
