Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

I first discovered this soup at my sister's house. She was making a giant pot of this on a very cold day and it was the perfect dinner. Luckily, she had made this soup many times and had already perfected it to her taste preferences. The two tips she gave me were to halve the recipe if I was not feeding a huge group. She also suggested reducing the amount of curry powder. She said the first time she made it exactly as the recipe stated it was a curry overload. I like curry flavors, but my sister prefers a hint of curry- nothing too overpowering. I also always prefer my soups to be a little spice, so I add red pepper flakes. This recipe is also a great vegan option that is filling but not heavy. However you tackle this soup, it's a delicious comfort food and freezes very well for future use.

Spicy Tuna Rolls

My friends and I decided to have a homemade sushi night after 2 of them took a sushi making course. We are all sushi making novices, so our rolls were not necessarily the most beautiful. But they tasted delicious and we came up with some fun variations. Our one friend was the sushi master as he had the most experience and he helped us all create our rolls. These spicy tuna ones were a huge hit. We made them plain and some with finely sliced avocado on top. The spicy may is a great addition to the roll and I would suggest making it along with these rolls.
