Ganache: Sweet Stuff

October 22, 2014 4:03 pm

This charming neighborhood café has quickly become one of the most popular hangouts in Hoboken for a variety of reasons. Nestled inside the historic Hudson Tea Building, Ganache is a great place to get a good cup of coffee. Regulars rave about their high-quality coffee drinks, which are expertly pulled from flavorful roasts. They also have a very good tea selection.

If you get peckish, Ganache serves up a variety of sandwiches and wraps which can be heated up for you. They’re fresh and made with exceptional ingredients. Sweets are also divine, with massive cookies drawing the lion’s share of the praise. Prices for food and drink are quite fair. Many locals use Ganache as a mobile office and praise their fast, free Wi-Fi connection. Between 4 and 7 p.m., the café celebrates “cappy hour,” where you can buy one cappuccino and get the next one half off. Acoustic musicians also occasionally play there.

Sample These Acorn Squash Recipes This Fall

October 16, 2014 5:05 pm

Acorn squash is a type of winter squash with a unique dark green rind, longitudinal ridges and a yellowish-orange inside that tastes sweet and mild. This squash is so versatile that even the most novice home chef can easily prepare it in a variety of different ways. Here are just three ways to try your hand at serving acorn squash this fall.

Baked Acorn Squash [allrecipes.com]
To really get a good idea of how acorn squash tastes, you should first prepare it all by itself. This simple recipe involves baking a halved acorn squash with just a bit of butter and brown sugar to create a healthy side dish or even a unique dessert.

Acorn Squash Soup with Kale [marthastewart.com]
With a hearty texture and autumnal flavors, this soup is perfect for those chilly fall evenings. Pureeing the acorn squash is one of the best ways to prepare it for use in a soup, while adding crispy bacon and finely chopped kale adds a darker, smokier flavor that contrasts the sweetness of the squash.

Spinach and Acorn Squash Ravioli [myrecipes.com]
Acorn squash makes a wonderful filling for pasta, and in this creative recipe it’s blended with creamy ricotta cheese and chopped spinach for added flavor. Plus, using wonton wrappers instead of the usual pasta dough saves on calories, and it’s much easier than rolling out that dough by hand.
