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!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
