I did not like Delicata squash the first time I cooked it because quite honestly I cooked it with the wrong method. I view this delicate vegetable in the same light as other winter squash. I cut it in half, scraped out the seeds and gave it a roast in the oven. Only to be disappointed, and vowing to not bother with it again.

But I was wrong! For the record, being wrong is completely OK, as long as you correct any errors that were your part. So I did.

Delicata squash is delicious. Mild in flavor, easy to cook (ahem, if you do it correctly...) and completely adaptable. One change I began making many years ago was "Let's eat more vegetables.". And I was serious, serious enough to give my goal a tag on this very blog. And I have spent the time since then trying and enjoying recipes for vegetables of all kinds.

This method will work with just about any other food you are baking in your oven, for the easiest dinner available, giving you time to relax or if need be, get other chores completed while dinner cooks. I baked this along side our main course at 350 degrees, putting it in the oven before the main course so it could take on a caramelized flavor.

Roasting vegetables is very adaptable, with no hard and fast rules. If you are oven sharing once the main dish is cooked, feel free to turn up the oven to 425-degrees and get the caramel action going, so everyone can enjoy dinner together.

350-degree oven

2 Delicata
1 large Onion
2-3 T oil, olive or avocado
Salt and Pepper
2-3 T sugar
1-2 T Balsamic Vinegar

Cut squash in half, scrape out the seeds, and slice crosswise into 1/4 inch slices.

Cut onion lengthwise into slices, separate.

Drizzle with the oil, and season with salt and pepper. (For me this worked best in a large bowl).

Spread out onto a large baking sheet, sprinkle with the sugar. Bake until tender 1-1/2 hours.

To serve, drizzle with the Balsamic vinegar.

Enjoy!

Sunday Supper Suggestion, Summer Fruits with Banana Creme and Toasted Coconut.

Celebrate the family with your own Sunday Supper. Sunday Supper is one of our favorite ways to bring the family together! We offer the following suggestion, and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

I have been a bit slow getting back into the swing of things...

Little did I know when I was eight posts ahead, already scheduled to publish, that I would fall prey to emergency surgery. Then Snap, quick as can be, a week went by and the posts were published. When I got back home, I was unable to cook for a few days. Worse yet, unable to eat for many weeks to come. Let me clarify, I can eat, but must be very careful with food choices, to allow healing.

This new to me process of eating for healing has taught me one thing, simple foods can be combined in wonderful ways that are truly enjoyed. Honestly it will be nice when I can return to exploring new and different recipes once again, but for now, the challenge has been accepted...

I will make wonderful meals with the ingredients that allow healing while continuing to enjoy the creative process of cooking.

Which brings us to this delicious Summer Fruit Plate with Banana Creme and Toasted Coconut. You may use any fruits that compliment the flavor of bananas. Fortunately, this is just about every fruit imaginable. Today I used a mango and red seedless table grapes, but berries come to mind for next time.

serves 2-6

2 small very ripe bananas
1/2 c honey yogurt
1 large mango, peeled and diced
1/3 c red seedless grapes
1/4 c toasted coconut - lightly salted is especially delicious for this arrangement

Mash the bananas, fold into the honey yogurt.

Pile the yogurt mixture in the center of a rimmed plate. Spread the banana creme outward, making room to arrange the fruit around and on top.

Arrange the mango pieces around the edge the perimeter.

Moving inward, make another circle with the grapes.

Top the entire plate with the toasted coconut.

Enjoy!
