The Ultimate Butternut Squash Bread Pudding

I love, love, love cooking this time of year. It is usually raining outside (ahem, that Seattle life) and we’ve got a cozy fire going inside. Rooms are lit by candlelight and everything I cook seems to make the house smell that much more festive. It is the epitome of hygee. It is magical.

And I suppose the best part of cooking this time of year is that butter, heavy cream, bacon, chocolates, and booze are all wildly accepted, if not a must. I appreciate that most people set their diets aside to partake in the sinfully joyful act of sharing food and spirits with one another. Oh the merriment it brings :)

Fantastic Fall Harvest Terrine.

Believe it or not, I don’t have a million and one things to say leading into this recipe!!

Shocking, I know.

I just love fall. Though I do adore every season as they are all so different, there is something about fall. The leaves change colors and begin to fall, the air gets crisp and feels more fresh, the sun still shines while the rain starts to make a few appearances, and life in the garden winds down allowing you to reap the benefits of a final harvest.

Fall is natures way of showing us how to gracefully let go and plant seeds for the spring to come.

I’m all about it. It is a beautiful thing.

So, with that, I give you my Fall Harvest Terrine.

However, I’m not sorry because while I was busy not posting this, I was working away on my cookbook!!  The last 6 weeks have been filled with cookbookery (yes, that is now a word…) and I would not have had it any other way!
