I don’t know about you but I find that there’s a certain excitement and comfort that accompanies cooking with butternut squash. Even the name has a certain ring to it. By now you’ve probably already guessed that I am a huge fan of this fruit (yes! butternut squash is a fruit), and I have very good reasons for it.
