Late August through Mid October are my favorite weeks of the year. Partly because I love wearing light jackets, but mostly because the produce is never better than right now. All of my favorite foods will be at their peak for the next couple months, which makes me so excited to share with you so many of my favorite dishes!
This is definitely one of them. It’s so simple, really highlights the season, and feels like it should be eaten while sitting by a fire, surrounded by trees whose leaf tips are just starting to show the first hints of yellow and red. I love this dish and I hope you do, too.
Hey guys. I have some thyroid issues and am vegan so apart from not adding the bacon, are there other subs that you do? Could I suggest adding in the modifications in the recipe list? I would love to know. I love the recipes but am stumped on how to modify (and am still figuring out the thyroid thing). Thank you guys so much.
I do plan on making this, but do question an inconsistency: you mention adding red wine vinegar to the boiling water, but it isn’t listed as an ingredient; however, you do list 1 Tbs of lemon juice, but don’t mention it in the instructions? Are they interchangeable?
Curious as to why you take out the bacon fat and then add in olive oil?
I made this tonight with Chris’ butternut squash soup. I subbed bacon for prosciutto (we didn’t have any) and I used goat cheese instead of gorgonzola. It was so good!
Hi Chris, excited to try this recipe! I noticed that the lemon juice is not mentioned in the instructions, should it be added at the same time as the zest? Thanks!
We made this tonight, and it was delicious! Such a great combo of flavors. We loved it!
Made this last night and it was delicious! Can’t wait to have it again.
I made this last night with Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi and it was delicious! Thank you for these recipes!
I’m excited to try this tomorrow night and have already went to the store and bought the ingredients.
Can you tell me what brand the skillet you’re using in the video is?
Thanks for sharing your recipes! This will be the first one I’ve tried. :)
I made this tonight and it was genuinely amazing. So delicious that my husband and I fought over the last of it. One question, the recipe instructions mention garlic but it’s not in the ingredients list. How much? I added one large clove as a guesstimate and it was great, but I’m wondering if I should have added more. Thanks!
How much red wine vinegar should I put in the boiling water? Thanks! So excited to try this!
This looks great! So far every recipe of Chris’ I have tried has been a hit. Thanks! Does he typically just substitute a Jules friendly option in for you with whatever he’s preparing? Or does your family mostly eat consistent with the thyroid regimen? I would be really interested in what a typical food day looks like for your family. I don’t have a functioning thyroid and find it difficult to eliminate everything recommended while still prepping satisfying meals for the whole family.
Making this now! Have never seasoned water like that… could you please share approx proportions of vinegar etc.? Ty
This is so smart!! What an easy, healthy weeknight meal. We’ll definitely be making this with Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi
Happy to see Chris Cooks is back. They are always a favorite! Can’t wait to make this, thanks!
Recipe looks great Chris. Can you share where is the plate and utensils from thanks
I’m gluten free as well and haven’t had much luck in the gnocchi arena. Do you buy that brand from a local grocery store (and could you share) or from Amazon?
They sell cappello’s noodles at Whole Foods in the freezer section!
You have the absolutely best recipes and I love your videos! It is obvious you truly love to cook and love what you cook.
Julia-can you eat this as is being gluten free or do you substitute anything? Thank you so much!
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
