It really has been a while since I’ve shared a recipe with you all.

Trust me, I really miss the kitchen. Between the wedding, the move and the apartment search, I haven’t had my own kitchen for over a month!

The end is in sight though and I’ve got a huge list of things that need to be made. I’m baaaack! πŸ˜‰

Anyway, brown butter is pretty much amazing. I’m convinced you could drizzle it over anything and whatever it was would taste delicious.

When you combine brown butter with squash and sage however, you are instantly transported to fall and all that comes with it. Crunchy leaves, pumpkin lattes, and brown boots. Any squash (or vegetable for that matter) would work although the acorn squash that I used was especially delicious.

And it felt like fall while I was eating it, even though I haven’t busted out my brown boots quite yet.

    This is perfect timing-I just bought an acorn squash yesterday and wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it. Thanks for the inspiration :-). Love how pretty the acorn squash rigs are!

    I really know how you feel about not having your own kitchen. I’m in the process of moving from London to Amsterdam and I’ve not had my own kitchen since September 5th…oh how I miss it. Fortunately my mother-in-law lends me hers until I have my own again but unfortunately she has electric hobs and not gas – seems there is a lot of that in Amsterdam! Is it only me who finds electric hobs a challenge?
    I’m going to make this tomorrow – looks great!
