In celebration of all things orange, it’s time for Butternut Squash Soup! Now that it’s finally colder where I live, I can bring out my stack of soup recipes. I love Butternut Squash Soup when it’s sweet and has a little kick. This recipe originally called for 3 squash, but unless you’re planning on feeding 40 people, a single gourd will do.
