I created these squash puffs duchess potatoes style the day after I prepared for the first time my Buttercup squash and blue cheese puree. It has been a great solution to make use of the remaining puree. The result has been so tasty, and often I prepare them as the main recipe, without waiting to have leftovers! This recipe is easy to make, and the puffs are perfect both as an appetizer and as a side dish. A crispy crust with a tender heart!
I love preparing this buttercup squash “pumpkin” puree for my family and friends for Thanksgiving or Christmas, or New Year’s eve! The mild sweetness of the squash is perfectly balanced by the taste of the blue cheese. I particularly like using Gorgonzola, but any semi-soft blue cheese fits good: the only critical thing is the cheese have to easy to melt along with the milk.
Pumpkin gnocchi is a recipe I love to prepare in this season. They are easy to make in advance and freeze, so perfect to plan a dinner even with several people: a feast for friends! I like so much the mild sweetness of these gnocchi and pair them with butter and sage, but also with meat sauces or melted blue cheeses: so yummy!
Winter comes together with cold, but with parties, and gatherings, and friends and family are coming as well! Among Thanksgiving, Christmas day and New Year’s Eve there are many opportunity to spend the cold days together with the people we love. Just thinking about these moments, I made this simple and tasty butternut squash spread. The sweet taste of butternut squash blends perfectly with the smoked paprika and sour notes of the goat cheese. A pinch of cayenne pepper will give at your dip an edge over, making it unique and warming your heart even more!
Halloween is coming! For the most terrifying night of the year, I created a recipe, sweet, and spicy, and tasty at the same time. Try this particular pumpkin chili with black beans, it is monstrously good!
Tired of winter? Here’s a hot and colorful cream soup to brighten up your dinner! The butternut squash cream soup is a dish that I like to prepare in many versions: Today I propose you a spicy and flavorful version with turmeric powder, dill and goat cheese. You can serve the butternut squash cream soup with wild rice or, alternatively, brown rice.
