Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

It has been a long time since I have shared my Butternut Squash Soup recipe so I thought I would post it again for you all. Plus, I have a new feature which makes printing my recipes easier. If you still have some chilly days in your forecast, this Butternut Squash Soup would warm you right up. I believe some people even like eating Squash soup cold. I don’t believe I am one of those people though.

  • These recipes all look amazing. If I had kids, I would totally try them with them! Cheese is my favorite food group so…..

  • This looks awesome! Glad to hear it was good with beef too, as that is what I am more likely to have on hand.
