  1. I love the combination of butternut squash and sage, so I'd be sure to love this dish. Great that your little one likes the strong flavour of chorizo!

  2. Oh wow that sounds like such ann amazing combination...another one from you I have to bookmark

  3. Beth that sounds like a wonderful combination of flavours and something I would love! A definate must try, thanks for sharing ;o)


  4. This sounds like a great combination of flavors!

  5. I saw something very similar a couple of days ago. Looks delicious and well worth a try!

  6. I made a similar dish last autumn, but with cherry tomatoes instead of pinenuts. I can easily imagine how they'd elevate the dish with all their wonderful flavours.

    (You could always just add some tomato sauce to hubby's portion!)

  7. Oh yeah me like :) Butternut squashes are in season here and I will definitely give this a try.

  8. I love butternut squash. I actually got one today! Perfect timing with this recipe. It looks great!

  9. Ah, you and I were both thinking chorizo! Now I know just what to do with my leftovers. Thanks for a great idea!!

  10. Oh, that sounds perfect for this time of year! Yum!

    thanks for stopping by my blog!

  11. Might just do that Angela!! Or tell him if he wont eat what I cook then he'll have to get his own dinner!!!

  12. This looks great, although I was struggling to think of the connection with Scotland. Then I thought doh! It is about eating whar you want. I did that during the week. Spaghetti with lot of garlicky pesto and parmesan. Lovely!

  13. That looks and sounds fablicious.

    I agree, Beth, let hubby get his own dinner, he'll soon come round to your way of thinking. :-)

  14. Do you know how much I love butternut squash? I'm crazy for it.
    Especially in pasta!

  15. Beth-ha! My husband was away and I made all my favorites too. I missed him, but boy did I eat well.:)
    I love this combo of squash and pine nut. Bring it on.

  16. You don't need a sauce when you use amazing ingredients. I would be so happy if I had this for dinner - can I be your neighbor?

  17. Pam - as it happens next door is up for sale!!!

    Holler - I am so in LOVE with pesto but again hubby wont entertain it ....very ofen anyway!!

  18. Mmm...looks delicious! I like the thought of the sweet squash, spicy chorizo and savouriness of the pine nuts!

  19. Wow this is all my favourite foods rolled into one dish, I'm saving this recipe it looks fantastic!

  20. what an excellent use for butternut squash! and i love the addition of pine nuts--talk about a nice crunch! :)

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
