With chili and soup season in full swing, I felt like it was time to introduce a new cornbread recipe to dip in, crumble on and serve with all of those deliciously warm soups and chilis!

Roasted Corn and Tomato Risotto

Roasted Tomato and Corn Risotto

One of my new favorite things is my “Farmers Market Recipe of the Week”, while I’ve always been a big fan of the Farmers Market, I usually just pick up ingredients I need for already planned recipes.

Lately, I always try to pick up a couple of “random” items then turn them into a new recipe for Little Leopard Book. This helps me think outside of the box and come up with something that’s fresh, local & seasonal!

The Farmers Market Beet and Burrata Tart was my first go at the “Farmers Market Recipe of the Week” and it was a huge hit (with me and on LLB!)
