It’s fall, and I’m excited.
It’s my favorite season to cook and bake, and find myself going through magazines, scrounging through books, and checking out websites non-stop to find good fall recipes. I’ve noticed that fall is the favorite season of a lot of my fellow food bloggers too, which makes me happy. For happy and inspired food bloggers = yummy posts!
So, as a happy blogger myself I made squash last night for dinner. My Nanny gave it to me and right away I knew what to do with it – caramelize it! Begin by peeling the squash and chop into large pieces. This peeling process takes a while, but it’s totally worth it.
Then combine squash, butter, sugar, cinnamon, salt and pepper in a bowl and toss together. Pour squash out onto a rimmed baking sheet and bake for about an hour or until browned.
This recipe is original and serves 8 hungry squash lovers as a side dish.
