There's been a lot of roasted meat in my professional life lately — more turkey, ground beef, and chicken than I care to admit — and while I'm still feeling like cozy fall cooking, I'm ready for a week of vegetables.

Luck would have it that this week the stars have aligned to give me a ton of pantry staples like chickpeas and black beans, leftover vegetables that need to be used up, and a bunch of new-to-me recipes that are all vegetarian.

A slice of classic cheesecake is one of those desserts that takes nicely to added flavors and tinkering. If you love both pumpkin pie and cheesecake, these creamy bars are the perfect hybrid. There's a sturdy graham cracker crust on the bottom, then a layer of classic white cheesecake, and finally a delicate pumpkin cheesecake layer fragrant with cinnamon and pumpkin pie spices. One pan makes a lot of bars that you can take to your next party or potluck; I promise the pan will come home empty.

Getting the most out of a modest food budget is tricky. I don't know about you, but I feel like I spend an inordinate amount of time researching recipes that are cost-effective yet tasty — and still end up spending more than I thought I would. If I'm really not careful or diligent about my food budget, my bank statement looks like I may as well have been eating Chipotle for every meal, because that's how much I spent at the store. And let's face it — living in one of the most expensive cities in the country (New York) probably doesn't help.

I love orzo — its plump, chewy grains so much like rice, but on a grander scale and with the tenderness of pasta — but I don't cook with it often enough, which seems silly, given how fast it can be. So I mused over what I would really like to eat right now and came up with all the fall vegetable flavors. Onions, garlic, mushrooms, sweet potato — preferably dark and caramelized, built from the ground up in one big skillet, browning, caramelizing, and sautéeing until you're left with a big pile of chewy orzo and dark, delicious fall vegetables.
