Hi.

Welcome to my food blog! I document and photograph my favorite healthy recipes. Enjoy!

Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese

Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese

If you, like me, are a fan of mac and cheese and also fall flavors - then this dish is for you! Combining butternut squash, cheese, and pasta - what could be more perfect? I hope you enjoy this recipe - it's multi-step, but it comes together quickly.

On a note that is completely unrelated to this great recipe -- I feel the need to share these wonderful YouTube videos with you. My brother is in town visiting and we sat watching these for an hour last night...completely mesmerized. 

I don't know the guy's name that made them, but his YouTube channel is called Primitive Technology. He uses no modern tools; and he fashions dwellings, axes, slingshots, etc using only items found in nature. And there's no talking - it's just birdsong and sometimes light rain in the background and it's super calming to watch. 

My favorite is the Tiled Roof Hut. I also really enjoyed the Bow and Arrow and the Slingshot videos. I also now feel the need to find a piece of land and start building my own dwellings, but I think my conflicting desire to continue shopping at Target and driving everywhere just might win out.

Okay, that is enough about my love of weird YouTube videos. I hope you are enjoying being in the kitchen after a nice, warm summer. Now that the weather has cooled off (hello, again, long-sleeved shirts!), I'm enjoying cooking so much more and have a list a mile long of new recipes I want to try. 

I hope you enjoy this delicious dish! Be sure to give me a shout on Instagram or Facebook if you make it.
