Roasted Squash Soup with Maple Cream

It may be short, but fall is my favorite season. It’s a time of year filled with cozy fashion, crisp air, vibrant tree lines and most importantly, delicious food! I missed autumn last year and instead, experienced a typhoon of a rainy season in the jungle. This season I have had some serious fall food […]
