Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy
This absolutely has to be heated to 295-300, otherwise it's somewhere between taffy and brittle. Also, it's too light in color at 285. Otherwise, excellent. Try it with pecans too.

Flaky Food Processor Pie Crust
This is it. If you are frustrated by inconsistent pie crust results, here's the recipe to use. Do make sure you freeze the "fat" and process as little as possible. The result is a well marbled crust that flakes up perfectly. Again, don't over process (the fat and flour should not be blended) or add too much water (stop while it still looks dry). Other than that, this is a fool proof way to make a perfect pie crust.

Butternut Squash with Onions and Pecans
Outstanding way to prepare Butternut Squash. If you are a Sam's Club or Costco shopper, they have 2lb trays of precubed squash this time of year. This makes preparation non-existent. If you can, substitute a couple of good sized shallots for the onion. Otherwise, don't change a thing. Great way to prepare squash.
