Kabocha Squash & Cheddar Muffins

Sundays to me are a perfect baking day. You get a baked treat for one of your meals or snacks, and you have leftovers for the rest of the week. There’s nothing like waking up on a dreary & rainy Monday morning and having homemade muffins waiting for you. These are savoury muffins, and a […]

I’m saving […]

Butternut Squash & Caramelised Onion Galette

On Thanksgiving weekend we were lucky enough to get an invite up to our friends’ cottage — perfectly situated on a lake surrounded by beautiful falling orange, yellow, and red leaves, and smelling and feeling like Fall. I was in charge of dinner one night, and wanted to make something “Thanksgiving-y” that wasn’t traditional Thanksgiving […]

Maple Squash Butter

Sometime last year, I lent my copy of Moosewood Restaurant Celebrates to my fabulous foodie friend, Louise.  And then I forgot about it. Louise then brought me one of the most delicious things I’ve ever tasted: pumpkin butter!   Oh my word, similar to apple butter, but made with pumpkins, this is a spread perfect for […]
