Squash is nobody’s favorite food. Maybe a baby’s? But when it comes to adult foods, squash doesn’t fall at the top of the favorite food list. That being said, I think squash is a very underrated food that doesn’t get enough hype. Consider this my attempt to hype up some hearty, yummy, roasted butternut squash.
One of my favorite ways to roast veggies is to place your sheet pan in the oven while it preheats. Once it rises to temperature, let the pan stay in for another 5 minutes before pulling it out and spreading the veggies on. In the case of this squash, I tossed it with some olive oil and herbs before spreading it on the hot pan and roasting it in the oven. I like to use a little bit of cinnamon to complement the sweetness of the squash.
While the squash roasts, you’ll mix a little concoction of more oil and more herbs, plus a special ingredient… duck fat. Once the squash is done, you’ll drizzle the mixture over the squash, sprinkle some flake salt and serve warm.
As we’re inching into fall, I’ll be making this delicious side dish more and more, and I’m not mad about that one bit.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.
