Apple-Stuffed Delicata Squash #OurFamilyTable


Though I still haven't felt the chill of autumn in the air here on California's central coast, we are sharing recipes with Fall's darling - the apple. Christie of A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures wrote: "Fall is just around the corner, but apples are coming into season. From sauces and breads to salads and side dishes, apples are completely versatile."

I am looking forward to getting all sorts of new apple recipes with an entire week devoted to apples next month. But, for now, let's kick off apple season!

Apple-Stuffed Delicata Squash

I typically make savory stuffed delicatas. But, for this event, I decided to go sweet...and served this for breakfast. 

Ingredients serves 2
  • 2 delicata squash
  • olive oil
  • 2 organic apples, cored, peeled, and diced (I used Granny Smith)
  • 2 T softened butter
  • 1/4 C chopped pecans
  • 1 T organic dark brown sugar 
  • 1 t ground cinnamon


Procedure
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut squash in half.

Remove seeds. Place cut side up in a rimmed baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil and roast, uncovered, for 30 minutes. In the meantime, make the filling.


Combine apples, softened butter, pecans, brown sugar, and cinnamon. 


Remove the squash from the oven and fill with the apple mixture. Cover with foil and return tot he oven for another 20 minutes.

Remove the foil and return the pan to the oven for a final 10 minutes. Serve immediately.

  1. I love that you served this up for breakfast. I think it would be a great side for dinner too, perhaps with baked ham.

  3. I love delicata squash and can't wait until it hits the grocery store. This sounds fabulous. We won't be having fall weather here until probably Halloween, but it doesn't stop us from loving fall flavors.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
