I grew up beneath the perpetually sunny skies of California. I didn’t have the idea of the air cooling and turning into crisp, of the leaves altering and overlaying the streets in pink and gold, and of the necessity for spice and heat, making you wish to bake. This fall in Milwaukee has been unseasonably heat. My fall vest remains to be within the closet, however the urge to bake remains to be sturdy and has led me to my assortment of squash. There’s pumpkin pie, however that’s too predictable. So, I made a decision to experiment with butternut squash!
It solely made sense to pair my butternut with the fragrant spices of chai and since I really like chocolate, I mixed all of them to make Butternut Chai Chocolate Chip Muffins!
