Three Cheese Tortellini with Butternut Squash – A Fall Meatless Monday Recipe

With Thanksgiving (and therefore lots of over-indulging ) around the corner, I am making extra sure to mix in some lighter meals over the next few weeks.

Banana, Chocolate & Nutella Layer Cake!

Nutella is all the rage these days. I honestly find it a little sweet for a breakfast kind of food, but I do enjoy it on a cake when I am already expecting a very sugary flavor.
