Dad's Diner is one of the best restaurant discoveries I have made in the past few years. From their home-smoked meats, fresh made breads and pretty much scratch-everything, this place packs a serious flavor punch! They are so much more than a diner and when visiting Anacortes be sure to make a stop to fill up!
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. Though with the tortellini this is surely not a 'low calorie' meal, I think it is a much healthier alternative to a pasta dish smothered in meat and a heavy-duty cream sauce! It however still hits all the fall comfort marks, and is a great vegetarian recipe. I hope you enjoy!
Pan Seared Scallops With a Bacon Cream Sauce
I feel like all you need to do is read the title of this recipe to know that it is friggin delicious. A few months back, I would have never thought to eat scallops in a heavier cream sauce like this, but then an experience dining out where I had BAKED scallops in a lovely flavorful sauce just like this sold me for life! Scallops. Bacon. Cream. This recipe is a winner!
