Most of the time on my site I have delicious desserts, however there are times when my husband and I like to sit down enjoy the dessert and a glass of wine. This is a time where we get to talk without interruption and reconnect with each other. A wine we were recently introduced to is Sonoma Cutrer. Sonoma-Cutrer has been producing the finest quality wines since it opened as a vineyard company in 1973. Its foundation is built in the hillsides and rocky foothills in the region recognized as the Sonoma Coast Appellation – this region experiences long, even growing seasons thanks to the cool, foggy coastal climate. In the 70's, the company planted several different grape varieties and virtually overnight Sonoma-Cutrer’s Chardonnay grapes had gained a reputation for exceptional quality and were in high demand by many premium wineries.

My dad gave me a squash...not just any squash; a squash that weighed 13.6 pounds! He grows them every year although he's not quite sure what kind they are. They're somewhat like a zucchini, but they really don't have any seeds, they're light orange inside and green on the outside. I was eager to try it so I got right to work! The first recipe I made I just chopped some up, added some sausage and cheese then baked it in the oven...nothing special, but that's what my daughter wanted. I wanted more of a stuffed style so I cut a chuck off, filled it with chicken, bacon and gouda...scrumptious! Then I made two desserts and froze the rest. This Squash Crostata is a simple recipe, it tastes delicious and it's a great way to sneak some veggies into your diet. Honestly, I never told my family it was squash in the desserts. They tried it, thought it was fruit and I left it at that...if you don't tell, I won't either ;)
