Pumpkin Bread

Adjust the oven rack to the lower third position and preheat the oven to 350°F degrees. Lowering the oven rack prevents the top of your bread from browning too much too soon. Spray a 9×5 inch loaf pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.

Butternut Squash Soup a la Olmedo!

Preheat oven to 425°F (230°C). Toss squash and carrot with olive oil and arrange on 2 rimmed baking sheets, being sure not to overcrowd the sheets.
