fall is here!

It may still be over 90 degrees here in Nashville, but it's obvious that fall is just around the corner: we got a mini-pumpkin and butternut squash in our CSA box!!!

In honour of the return of fall and all its delicious flavors, here are some of my favorite recipes from last fall that featured butternut squash and/or pumpkin. As you can see, my photography skills have dramatically improved since this blog's inception, so I am particularly excited to revisit these dishes now that I can take photographs that will do them justice.

  1. There are few things cuter than mini pumpkins and squash! Seeing your list of recipes reminded me of the pumpkin cheesecake you shared with us last year. Yum! I will make it a goal to try your recipe this year.

  2. What a lovely photo of delicious fall goodies. I love pumpkin so I'll be checking out all of your recipe links.
