As most of you know, I am an avid reader! I love reading different blogs and trying new recipes from others! I might start a series called "Blogger Spotlight" that highlights some of my favorite food bloggers! Let me know if you are interested in that topic! 

I love finding food inspiration on instagram! Over the weekend, I was looking for something different to make for dinner, and I stumbled upon Kate of cookieandkate.com Instagram. Her page is filled with delicious recipes, but what caught my eye was her Butternut Squash Soup! It's been getting cold in Dallas, so I thought this recipe would be the perfect way to warm me up! I rushed to the market to get all the ingredients , which were pretty easy to find since everything was in season!

What I love about Kate's soup recipe is how simple it was. There are not a lot of ingredients, it took less than two hours to make, and it's all made in a blender! I have never had butternut squash before so this was pretty exciting for me. I love trying new recipes. Cooking is so relaxing!

I really enjoyed this soup,. It was flavorful and perfect for the yucky weather we are having here in Dallas. Even though it was a light dish, it definitely filled me up. This recipe is great for lunch, so I plan on taking the left overs for work tomorrow!  To see the original recipe and Kate's beautiful site click here.
