Happy almost New Year!
2012 has been a fantastic year for me and for the Fruitful blog.
This year, Fruitful turned one and I feel like it's come such a long way since the beginning. This year, I had one of my recipes featured on foodgawker. And this year, I came up with my own digital recipe cards to make cooking my recipes even easier for you (click here to see all of the recipe cards).
I am so thankful for all of you readers out there and I hope I can continue to provide you with more fun food stuff in 2013.

It's good to be back.
Back to my little apartment after 3 weeks away. Back to my kitchen where I love to be. Back to my husband who I was away from for 2 weeks.
The past three weeks have been chock full of new adventures, sights, foods and celebrations.
In that time I've been to Burma and back (and on 9 planes, a few motorbikes and dozens of taxis) and celebrated Christmas with two families.

A few weeks ago when we were decorating our little apartment with lights and garlands and getting in the Christmas spirit, I got a craving for a delicious cookie.
And I didn't turn to the usual chocolate chip or rich, fudgy brownie that I usual depend on.
I was specifically craving an oatey, coconuty, crispy cookie.
And this recipe for Coconut Oatmeal Chewies from Mel's Kitchen Cafe absolutely hit the spot.

My husband and I love curry.
My husband is more of a curry lover than maybe even I am.
So, we really enjoyed this fun twist on butternut squash soup with the addition of curry powder and coconut milk.

Happy Simple Saturday!
Sorry that it's been awhile since I've been able to do one of these.
I've been a busy little lady, and I'm getting ready to go on a two-week trip to Burma next week!
Today, I am featuring a vegetable that I hadn't tried until this year.
The lovely spaghetti squash.
And it's all thanks to my good friend Annie, who brought me one of these squashes from her garden.
