Apple pie is the classic fall dessert. It’s a rarely-modified staple that seldom sees any flavour additions other than vanilla ice cream.

I’m a little obsessed with butternut squash lately.  It’s been a bread pudding, of course, a soup, and now I’ve ventured into the…breakssert world.  What do you think of the word breakssert?  I think that a lot of my recipes can double as either.  Maybe it’s because the desserts are so healthy they can be any meal…and I love breakfast…
