If you are feeling extra adventurous around the holiday season, or if you have just too many pumpkins on your hands (my problem), my pumpkin puree recipe is surprisingly easy and tasty. Made in larger batches, some can be used immediately, and some can be frozen for later use. Pumpkin puree is best known for its use in pies, but is a healthy addition to soups and pasta recipes.
So many times I have broken a sweat and muttered unmentionables under my breath while trying to cut a butternut squash, that is, until I stumbled upon a simple hack. Check out my step-by-step directions, with photos, on how to cut a butternut squash without completely losing your patience.
I look forward to getting delicata squash from our CSA every fall. It is less commonly found at our local grocer, making it something special, although I would not be surprised or disappointed to continue to see this squash grow in popularity. It has a mild, sweet flavor, with a thin, edible skin. This recipe for my Tex Mex Stuffed Delicata Squash is husband and kid tested and approved.
