Featured Recipe: Butternut Squash Bread
Why do pumpkins get all the attention this time of year? The beautiful butternut squash needs a little more spotlight, if you ask me. The good news is butternut squash is so good for you. Besides being extremely low in saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium, it’s a good source of vitamin E, thiamin, niacin, vitamin B6, foliate, calcium and magnesium, as well as a very good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium and manganese.
Thanksgiving is the perfect time to pull out this showstopper. Breakfast is the often-overlooked meal on Thanksgiving Day. With the feast yet to come, you definitely don’t want anything heavy. So serve this easy and delicious breakfast bread with fruit and coffee and breakfast on the big day is done.
The bread can be made up to 3 days ahead, but you’ll want to toast it or re-warm it in the oven. It’s so easy, though, you can whip up a batch before the rest of the house wakes. Now that’s something to be thankful for. Enjoy!

What you're saying..
I just want to thank you for several years of eating discovery and pleasure. My son gave me Desperation Dinners! I started out just letting the book fall open and I made whatever it fell to. Later on I started systematically going through the whole book. It took me about 3 years, but it was an exciting adventure.
