The easy way to cook butternut squash!
This fall and winter I have really gotten into using winter squash like butternut squash in different recipes. So I am always looking for new ways to incorporate it into new meals. But one thing that I really wanted to do was to find a simple way to cook the squash for soups, mashed squash recipes. And since I like the easy way of doing things, I wanted to try using the slow cooker!
Baking it in the oven is fine, but I also wanted a way too cook it so that I could leave the house and run some errands. Here’s where the slow cooker became my rockstar appliance!
