Polenta is a staple for me. I love how this carb component (delicious as mashed grits or chunky cubes) is a great basis for breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes. It is a constant delight to have a warm, cozy bowl of yummy goodness in the form of my beloved polenta.
This easy pumpkin pecan sauce relies on the fatty flavor of pecans and no additional oil.
