Saturday Recipes - Squashes and Pumpkins!

Today I dream about trying all these recipes involving squashes and pumpkins - the hit of every autumn and winter :)

The season for squashes is coming and it always brings autumn to my mind. I love the sweet, rich flesh inside protected by the beautiful thick skins that you can use for decoration in so many ways. Today I would like to show my favourite ways of preparing squashes and pumpkins - some are sweet, the others savoury. Now choose your favourite! :)

Roasted Pumpkin Wedges

This is the easiest way to serve pumpkin and also my favourite one. You simply drizzle the pumpkin with olive oil, add garlic cloves and fresh sage leaves, then roast until soft. Simple and delicious! Get the recipe here!

  1. Pyszności, ach pyszności....
    O tej porze roku przyrządzałam zawsze zupę z dyni.
    Kiedyś robiłam ją specjalnie dla mamy.
    Jak mama odeszła to przestałam lubić zupę bo za bardzo kojarzyła mi się z jej osobą.
    Nadeszła jednak pora, żeby przypomnieć sobie o dyni i dalej żyć...
