Butternut Bake


Everyday I make my meals.  And each time i think, “Wow, that was amazing.  I should have taken pictures so I can share this.”  So every once in a while I have the foresight to grab the camera.  Now this helps me as much as you, as my recipes tend to be a dump it in, and we’ll see how big the explosion amazing it tastes.  So when I have the foresight to document my experiments recipes, I can remember the recipe and also share it with all you.

….Or in theory, that is.  Problem is my life gets so crazy most of the time, that a few days goes by, and I forget the temperature I baked it at, or the ratios of ingredients.  Really, I do try.  But getting to the computer is just something I utterly fail at.

A friend recently contacted me wondering if I had updated my blog, as she was keeping her eye out for my recipes.

Margie, my dear, this post is for you.  I apologize for how long it has taken me to get this out to you 🙂

I used WAY more parmesan than I probably should have.
