Most Popular Pumpkin and Winter Squash Recipes from Simply Healthy Family

Fall is indubitably my favorite time of the year. Sure you've heard that from countless people for all of the same legitimate reasons but fall is eagerly and vehemently anticipated here in the desert, most especially by me I think. While we don't have any trees that change color in October and it's still to hot to wear our cute scarves or UGG boots there is a very distinct and rousing change in the air one can almost call crisp and is just enough to stimulate one's senses into the favor of Fall. 

The season's change also brings my favorite flavors and foods. Pumpkin everything and every variety of squash. Acorn, Butternut, Kabocha, Carnival, Sweet Dumpling, Delicata and Spagetti Squash are everywhere you look, even here in the Sonoran Desert. Roasting them is always a simple and delicious option to prepare squash as is a pumpkin pie but there are SO many other ways to take advantage of Fall's bountiful squash varieties. Here are my very favorites!

I miss my New England fall weather but not the awful winters so I will suffer without my Ugg boots for a few more months in exchange for not shoveling out 100 inches of snow. ;-) I think the pumpkin ice cream might be on my weekend to-do list with my kids. They will be so excited!

    1. Hmmm, excellent point! X-nay on the shoveling snow!
