Butternut Pumpkin Pie

Just a few weeks ago, I harvested a HUGE butternut squash at one of my school gardens. Personally, I’m not much of a fan of winter squashes. They have a sweetness that I don’t like to associate with what should be savory foods (same reason I don’t like sweet potatoes). But I know I need […]
