Red Kari Squash and Split Pea Soup with Sinful Onions

One of my favourite new traditions, is to start the new year with a bowl of lentil & pumpkin soup.  It’s a tradition from Nigel Slater that I borrowed from his hunger-inspiring account of what he cooked and ate in a year, The Kitchen Diaries. This year, I had on hand a red kari squash […]

Butternut Squash Lasagna with Mushrooms and Spinach

It’s Fall, and it’s getting chilly here, so it’s all squash all the time.  And this time, it’s a lasagna! I changed up the squash, and this time sliced a butternut squash lengthwise and popped it in the oven.  (If you’d like proper directions, check out: my post on how to roast squash). Along with […]
