Winter Squash & Fresh Sage Biscuits

This recipe is so very delicious. I’ve made it 4 times in the past three weeks, each time with a different squash. Although my biscuits aren’t nearly as attractive as the creator’s biscuits, they are scrumptious. Like most of my recipes, I alter them from another recipe. This one was altered from Kitchen Vignette’s Delicata…

Review: “The best book ever made.”

Hyperbole. I use it often for emphasis, especially when overwhelmed with joy or another passionate emotion, so I deeply appreciate this glowing 5-star review by reader K. A. Schaefer for the 5th book in the Rowan of the Wood fantasy series: SPIRIT OF THE OTHERWORLD. Awesome! The best book ever made. The ending is the…
