Do you like carrot cake? I do. If you like it as well, you will definitely love these butternut squash muffins. They are sweet, moist and a perfect treat on a snowy day. Yes, it’s snowing here. Our street was all white this morning. I hope that it will last and that the snow won’t turn into brown mud in the afternoon. Unfortunately snow is not always nice in the city.
I have taken two days off work, which puts me into a total Christmas mood. This afternoon I will defintely start baking Christmas cookies.
I love how our weekly vegetable delivery has turned all winterly: brussels sprouts, cabbage and SQUASH! I have turned into a total squash lover lately. My favourites include these muffins, squash soup with coconut milk and warm squash and kale salad with nuts. Things on my list: butternut burritos and butternut pasta.
Look at the beautiful colour of this butternut!
I have rediscovered my cookbook “jamie at home” by Jamie Oliver. All the recipes are ordered by seasons. Great book with beautiful photography.
