Photography Pauline Boldt


Happy October everybody! I hope you’re all dressed for the weather because autumn is settling in fast! There is so much to look forward to in the kitchen when I think about all the fall ingredients we can start cooking with. The earth-y notes of fresh rosemary and thyme, the smoky aromas of roasts, and of course the tang and heat of our mustards! Sure, the thought of frostier days can be a bit intimidating, but we can indulge in the thought of the harvest it brings this time of year - SQUASH! While there are many ways to cook this wholesome vegetable, I’ve picked out 5 recipes that are fitting to welcome this season with open arms.
