Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 375ºF; line a large baking sheet with foil. Place squash cut sides up on sheet, sprinkle with salt and pepper and cover with foil. Roast until soft, about 1 hour 15 minutes. Cool slightly, then scoop out flesh with a large spoon. Discard skins.
2. In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, sprinkle with salt and cook, stirring, until soft, about 8 minutes. Do not allow onions to brown. Peel, core and roughly chop apples. When onion is soft, add garlic and chopped apples to pot and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add pumpkin pie spice; stir for 1 minute. Stir in squash and broth; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer until apples are completely soft, 25 minutes.
3. Working in batches, puree soup in a blender until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Return soup to pot and place over low heat to keep warm.
4. Divide soup among 8 bowls, drop a dollop of sour cream in the middle of each and serve immediately.

About This blog

My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, ....you get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
