Creamy Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

Fall has officially arrived! I live in Texas, so it doesn’t quite feel like fall weather yet, but it certainly isn’t summer anymore. As soon as fall arrives, I bring out all of my favorite fall ingredients. Some of my favorite fall ingredients are pumpkin (duh!), apples, pomegranate, pecans and squash. There are so many varieties of squash to work with, but spaghetti squash has to be my favorite. [Read more…]
