It’s that time of year with butternut squash and pumpkin recipes every where you turn! To be honest, I’m not a huge pumpkin fan (although I do have a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe that I love), but I do love butternut squash. This soup is so filling, so good for you, and the perfect fall dinner. I hope you love it as much as I do! xo
