Acorn Squash Stuffed with Quinoa, White Beans, Olives, and Feta Cheese. Raised in hippie Berkeley in the 1970s by a non-observant Jewish mom and a devoutly agnostic father, my religious upbringing was scant to say the least. When asked directly, my parents always insisted we were Jewish, and we did enjoy appropriately festive Hanukkah, Passover, and Rosh Hashanah dinners with family and friends, but that’s pretty much where religion ended for us. When I once asked my mother why we couldn’t have an Easter egg hunt like my friends’ families, she answered flatly, “Because we’re Jewish,” yet peculiarly we always had a Christmas tree and opened presents on December 25 (incidentally, I got the same J-word answer when I asked why Santa didn’t bring us stockings like he did other kids).

We were fair weather Jews—happy to enjoy a few extra parties throughout the year, but God forbid we should miss out on the commercial spectacle of more mainstream holidays. Maple Glazed Acorn Squash with Apple, Parsnip and Sage. This hearty fall recipe is deeply satisfying.
