New Apartment, New Favorites!

Sorry to be SO BEHIND! Seeing the baked tofu post has inspired me, though--not only to bake tofu of my own, but to put up a few recipes I've come to love. My new apartment has a tiny (but truly lovable) kitchen, so these are all things that take relatively few dishes and not too much space, but are delicious when they're done. (Photos to follow soon, now that I have a new camera.)

--Mollie Katzen's Farfalle with Arugula Gremolata, Gorgonzola, and Walnuts (posted here: I upped the amount of the gremolata but kept everything else just as it was, and was awarded with a delicious, filling, and unusual pasta dish.
--Roasted butternut squash and shallots. Cut into small pieces, toss with a splash of olive oil and some salt and pepper, and roast at 450 degrees. Time depends a lot on size--I overroasted mine a bit, and found that made them even creamier and better.
--Lentil Stew with Spinach & Potatoes ( Simple, quick, and yummy. I top each bowl with an extra splash of lemon juice and some fresh pepper.
--Cranberry Walnut Pumpkin Bread ( I subbed apple sauce for most of the butter, since there's a lot in there, but man, this bread tastes good. After the first loaf, my roommate made it clear that the rest of the canned pumpkin should be made into another loaf, ASAP.

That's all for now! Looking forward to making some tofu & dal--

I'm thinking lentil stew with potatoes and spinach for tonight. And I was thinking of making some muffins, maybe the pumpkin bread as muffins?????
