I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Grilled Acorn Squash

Acorn squash is labeled as a winter squash, but why should zucchini get all the summer love? Change it up with these barbecued squash slices.


1 acorn squash

1-2 tbsps olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

a few drops of hot sauce and any seasonings you want like:

cumin, smoked paprika, oregano, basil, brown sugar, cinnamon


Wash, scoop out the seeds and slice the squash. Peel it if you like but there's no need as the skin is edible. Toss with oil and hot sauce, then seasonings and place on a 350°F grill. Cook 2 minutes on each side over direct heat, then move over to indirect heat and cover for 30-35 minutes. They are done when fork tender. 

Serves 2-3
