the cooking apprentice

With the new season, comes time to try the vegetables of the season. Ben takes this as a learning opportunity for his little healthy cooking apprentice.

The vegetable of the evening... acorn squash.

The recipe of the evening... Roasted Acorn Squash and Gorgonzola Pizza.

First, they set off to play Pat-a-cake...

They rolled it, and patted it, but didn't mark it with a B...

Then came time to prepare the featured vegetable...

Once again, they rolled it, patted it, but didn't mark it with a B...

Later they took it out of the oven, for Ben, True-y and me...
This was so yummy and the acorn squash was super delicious. It kind of reminds me of sweet potato, kinda. Nevertheless, whole wheat crust, fine cheese, and autumn vegetables make for a wonderful dinner. Let us not forget my two adorable cooks!

Eating healthy is really yummy... or maybe my Ben and True are just really good cooks.


  1. Love your green mixer! And the pizza looks beautiful. Acorn squash, now that's one I've never tried. How neat of your girls to be so adventurous.

  2. Looks good and healthy. I wish someone would come cook that up for me. :)

  3. eeekkk what a cutie. and what a fab helper.

  4. oh yum! i may have to make my family be adventurous and try that. I have a whole wheat pizza dough recipe but would you mind posting yours?
