One food I love to cook with during this cold season is squash. There are so many different ways to prepare this delicious gourd, but a simple and favorite recipe of mine is a rich and decadent butternut squash soup. Just imagine curling up on the sofa with a generously sized bowl of something warm and filling to nosh on, listening to Christmas music and enjoying a cozy night in.
