Adventures in: immersion blending!

It's finally October and finally chilly outside. So what is the best way to warm up? Hot, creamy soup....

I recently moved to a new apartment and as a house warming gift I recieved an immersion blender. If you have no idea what an immersion blender is or looks like, click here:


Basically you can cook any veggie down with any stock or cream and blend it together to create a creamy, silky soup. Because I'm a fall fanatic I decided to make butternut squash soup!

-1 large butternut squash
-2 cups of milk
-1 cup of chicken stock
-2 tablespoons of butter
-1 teaspoon of salt
-1 tablespoon of cinnamon
-2 tablespoons of sugar

First I chopped the squash into cubes and boiled them int the milk and stock until they were soft. Then, I got the immersion blender out and started blending away until it was creamy. Then I added the salt, sugar, cinnamon, and butter and blended for another 30 seconds. Then I let cook for another 10 minutes.
That's it! How easy is that? Not only is the recipe pretty healthy....

...but it's so simple and very cozy, especially when it's chilly out. The soup is sweet but still has that cinnamon bite to it. It's the perfect fall dish.

Happy Fall! :)
