Mashed Butternut Squash - This is tasty by itself but is super versatile. My partner, Krista, recently did a version of this as we were swimming in squash. We had some as a side, used some in homemade ravioli with ricotta, and froze the rest.
Black Futsu with Hazelnuts Erin sent this over and it looks pretty amazing. Black Futsu are creamy, nutty and a lil' bit sweet. They're also quite cool looking and can double as decor. Let's all hope that that's the first and last decorating tip you'll see here.
