Ever since we visited Cornwall earlier this year, we have been waiting for cooler weather to bake up our own version of the iconic pasty (pronounced PAST-ee). This week, a chill finally blew in and we had a winter squash from the farmers' market and a craving for buttery shortcrust... We should probably get this out of the way first: these aren't traditional Cornish pasties, and we hope not to be chastised by the pasty police!
Are you a person who cringes when your foods touch? Don’t answer that . I don’t want to ruin my impression of you because I happen to really like when my foods touch.
Recipe inspiration: My obsession with looking at the gourmet food aisle at TJ Maxx is what inspired this dish. On more than one occasion I have seen a jar of sauce labeled Butternut Squash Sauce and I have always been tempted to buy it and finally did.

I warily passed the display of Christmas trees and cringed as I heard the holiday music caroling from the shelves of CDs.
The calendar says that it is Fall, but in the South it still feels like Summer, especially since driving a little bit farther south for Fall Break. The Gulf Coast apparently has no idea that the rest of the nation is removing sweaters from bedroom boxes, carving pumpkins, and planning Halloween costumes. They’re still wearing flip flops, sporting sunglasses, and donning floppy oversized hats down here.
Abstract: Beta recipes are my own experiments that I've only tried once.

I know what you're thinking: I already know the trick involving smashing a garlic clove with a knife to quickly remove its skin. Well this is a new, and rather incredible trick.
Measure the butter, sugar, flour, baking powder, eggs, milk and vanilla extract into a large bowl and beat with a hand-held electric mixer for about two minutes, until well blended. Spoon half into another bowl and set aside. In a small bowl, mix the cocoa powder and hot water together until smooth.

When you throw out food, it ends up in a landfill. Duh, right? Except I bet most of us don’t really think about that when we toss a head of wilted romaine in the bin, which is why 27 percent of all food we bring into the house ends up in the trash. (That’s the official number; I bet the real number is much higher.) Once in the trash, it doesn’t “biodegrade”—mainly because it’s in a landfill , where it produces methane as it decomposes.
