Testing new recipes.

Sunday, November 3, 2013

I have been asked to teach a cooking class in Muncie twice a week! I am so excited - for more than just the opportunity to cook but to share and pour into some young adults who are hungry for knowledge.

So in prep for my first class - I'm making butternut squash soup. I've made pumpkin curry soup from scratch - so I understand the basic premise. 

This morning grabbed a cooks illustrated recipe and a nice looking squash.

Here is the recipe - http://www.cooksillustrated.com/recipes/489-silky-butternut-squash-soup

Instead of blending the soup in a traditional blender - I opted for a smart stick hand blender.

I didn't try the cinnamon sugar croutons since I'm allergic but I feel they would be a fantastic addition.

To fill out this meal I also roasted a whole chicken. I didn't have an onion on hand but figured leaks and shallots would work well. (Here is an easy chicken recipe - http://m.foodnetwork.com/recipes/21404)

No dinner would be complete without dessert - peach cobbler is up next!


Just don't forget your peaches on the stove - or you will be having frozen coffee cake. :(
