I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Spicy Roasted Butternut Squash

Since butternut squash is one of the hardest vegetables you'll find,  you'll need to pierce the whole squash a couple of times then pop it in the oven at 400F for 25 minutes to make it alot easier to cut.

Once cooled you can peel it, scoop out the seeds and cube it.

Put the cubes in a bag with a couple of tbsps olive oil and toss. 

Mix these spices together and toss with the squash:

1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 - 1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp celery seed
1/4 - 1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp salt

Spread the squash out on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 400F for 25 minutes.  Broil another 4-5 minutes.

You can serve it plain, but it does go well with sour cream.
