Butternut Squash… Say whaaaat?!?!

I’ve been wanting to make both mac and cheese and hummus for a while now, and what better ingredient to add then butternut squash. We received a butternut squash in our share a few weeks ago and I feel like we’re probably going to get another one soon, so I HAVE TO USE IT! haha, well I don’t have to but that’s what I’m telling myself.

Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese. Recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod blog.


I used bow-tie pasta instead of elbow macaroni, ricotta cheese instead of aged-white cheddar (I still used the sharp cheddar, SERIOUSLY SHARP VT CABOT!), and italian blend spices instead of rosemary and nutmeg. Other then that, I followed the recipe.

Butternut Squash Curry Hummus. Recipe from Oh She Glows blog


It’s pretty interesting tasting but I think if you’re into Curry, you’re gonna like it. If you don’t like it, just bring it to your next pot-luck! People always like interesting dishes!!



About Kimberly

I've always been in love with food. I was recruited as a pastry chef at a local bakery when I was 15 and left to go to Culinary School when I was 18. Although culinary school didn't work out (too business oriented), I have become more involved with farming and farm-to-table dishes. I'm a twenty something-er who is trying to figure it all out and using food to get through the tough times. Whenever I'm stressed, I twirl in the kitchen and find something to make!

      We actually sat around trying different dipping options. Veggies were ok… We only had carrots but figured radishes would probably be the best, like a Korean or purple radish. Then we ended up eating a ton of it with NaaN crackers. It also tastes really good from finger dips. Haha!
