When I first started this blog it was meant to be a general craft/homemade blog, however as my love of cross stitch crept back that became most of what I posted on. Now I would like to post a bit more regularly but include some other crafty pursuits.
Recently I have been making a list of things I would like to try or learn. One of those things was to expand my cooking abilities. To that end I decided to try to make a Butternut Squash Soup. So onto the trusty internet I went and did a search for some recipes. I finally settled on one that looked nice and simple. You can find the recipe here: Easy Butternut Squash Soup
I gave it a go yesterday and learned a thing or two. While I love butternut squash I have never cooked with it before and I discovered just how difficult it is to peel. It took me a while to getting the whole thing done, however once I did the rest of the recipe was very straight forward. I did make one mistake in the recipe and added too much cream which has made the soup quite creamy and heavy but I found that it was still delicious and was quite happy with the outcome.
This recipe made quite a large pot of soup so I will be freezing some of it in individual portions for when I need something quick. I have always been really reluctant about making soup as I thought it would be a complicated process but this was so easy, other than the peeling, that I think I will be trying some other soup recipes.
I hope you have enjoyed this post about something a bit different and that you find some of these homemade item topics useful. Please let me know what you think in the comments or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
