Roasted butternut squash salad

I love autumn… It’s that promising smell in the air of things to come. Leaves falling, temperatures dropping and winter slowly but surely approaching.

Hungarian farmers bread

Inspired by a post that Ben made on his blog “What’s Cooking” about homemade bread I realized I had never really made my own bread. I had done it only once with one of those packages you can buy in the supermarket. The only thing you need to add is water and the rest is all pretty simple. After reading…
