While I was surfing the food blogs for this week's #AKfood, I was hungry. The award for the recipe I most wanted to stuff in my mouth immediately goes to Megan Lierman, for her game-day bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers. What is it about game-day food? So naughty. So satisfying. While you're at it, you might as well make her hot (vegan if you want) artichoke dip too. 

Meanwhile, other Alaska's foodies are putting on their autumn sweaters. Maya Evoy was making roasted tomato soup and roasting acorn squash stuffed with black beans and quinoa. Up at the Fairbanks News-Miner, readers were talking butternut squash. Anchorage Food Mosiac's Jennifer Kehoe and David Waldron of Alaska Public Radio brewed up some autumnal cranberry hooch.

And for my final paragraph, some odds and ends: First, I can't believe that earlier in August I missed this Megan Ancheta recipe for mashed cauliflower with roasted garlic and chives, because it looks delicious. Here is a Shannon Kuhn story in the Anchorage Press about a local hot cereal company, Samurai Cereal. And, finally, let us all give local foodie-Instagrammer Trysha Mapley a round of applause for blanching and freezing two 55-gallon garbage bags of kale
