Guys, there are SO many things I want to share with you.  I feel like my mind is constantly bouncing around ideas for recipes, workout tips, etc that I want to place on the blog.  Many of you have asked for a post detailing my Distance Dietetics Program, video blog sharing a tutorial about how I curl my hair, recipes to share with family during the holidays, and easy workouts that you can do at home.  While I have so many ideas for all of the above I have to be completely honest in saying that writing for the blog isn’t my main focus right now. 

These next few weeks, posting in my little slice of internet may be pretty infrequent due to final projects being turned in, studying for exams, rehearsing for my professional holiday singing group along with managing their social media accounts, and most of all spending time with Brian and several friends that are coming to visit us in Denver.

I’m telling you this so you know that I haven’t dropped off the face of the planet and I have not forgotten about you.  Trust me, I wish I could do it all!!

So that being said, I’m super excited to share this recipe with you 🙂

Over the summer, I took a cooking class from one of my blogging and real life friends, Marisa!

Healthy Appetizer's with Marisa via Treble in the Kitchen

Her class focus was teaching us how to make healthy appetizers, which was so fun!  While I loved all of the appetizers, my mind couldn’t help wandering as we made the Avocado Bruschetta.  Thoughts of fall butternut squash popped into my mind and I knew that I had an appetizer idea fit for a Thanksgiving gathering 🙂

Fast forward to the appropriate time of year for eating copious amounts of nutrient-dense winter squash and I have made this wonderful and SIMPLE recipe a few times.

We have enjoyed it simply with nut thin crackers, Brian likes it with crusty bread and it’s amazing over your favorite protein.
