Food Loves: Ode to Butternut Squash

For many years, pumpkin has been king of the gourds. Starting with pumpkin spiced lattes in September, pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, and jack-o-lanterns at Halloween, pumpkin has come to rule the autumn season time and time again. However slowly, very slowly, butternut squash has peaked his head into the cracks. All of a sudden butternut squash soup became a thing, and a thing that was available for lunch at nearly every cafe and every corner. The butternut squash was everyone's favourite fall soup flavour, but where are his lattes? Where are his pies? Well, they may not be a thing yet but butternut squash is definitely out on the town, an emerging artist, stepping out of his comfort zone and becoming more than soup! Here are a collection of recipes I've found that help bring butternut squash into the spotlight:

Butternut Squash Biscuits / Butternut Squash Smoothie / Butternut Squash Bundt Cake 
Buttnernut Squash Gnocchi / Butternut Squash Fries / Butternut Squash Lasagna
