Cozy up to a bowl of this creamy Butternut & Acorn Squash Soup.
Ever wonder how food bloggers come up with their recipes?
I pretty much think or talk about food all day. At work, I’m educating clients about nutrition through food or teaching cooking classes. Then, for the blog, my recipe creations are inspired by conversations I have, discussions in cooking classes or demonstrations, or simply from a particular ingredient. Travel definitely plays a big role in recipe development too. I love dining out when I travel, experiencing the local fare. I like to try an recreate recipes I’ve tried with my own little twist.

This recipe was a little different. The next day to work after FNCE, I was dragging. There was no food in my refrigerator and I went into work empty-handed for lunch. The beauty of working at Living Plate, there is a test kitchen right in the office. I opened the fridge and utilized what was in there and in the pantry. This recipe creation was purely driven by hunger and fatigue.
We all loved the soup so much, I ended up making it again in a cooking class, during a community event cooking demonstration and even added it to the meal plans. Ever wonder what kind of squash to use for different recipes? I break it down here!
Next time before you start dialing for takeout, really take a look what is in your kitchen. You never know – you might whip up something delicious!
