Some mornings call for digging into a slice of pie or cake dolloped with yogurt, but for most, these indulgences are the exception rather than the norm. While the latest addition to the Thomas' lineup, Thomas' Gingerbread Bagels ($5), doesn't aim to serve as a stand-in for a slice of dense, sweetly spiced gingerbread, we were curious to find out if these rounds ticked some of the same boxes.

Butternut squash is incredibly versatile; it lends an autumnal, pumpkin-y flavor to everything from salad to soup to macaroni and cheese. Unlike the seasonal produce of Summer, many cold-weather vegetables cannot be enjoyed raw. However, once you know the simple steps to roasting butternut squash, you can put it to use in just about anything.
The roasted chunks can be tossed with arugula and white beans. Or, blitz the squash in a food processor, and use the puree to make lasagna. Not only are there unlimited ways to cook with roasted squash, there are also plenty of ways to season it. Fresh sage, thyme, or rosemary add an earthiness to the squash, while honey or maple syrup caramelizes the flesh. Doesn't experimenting with different flavorings and preparations sound like fun? To get started, check out our basic recipe for roasted squash.

This risotto recipe looks restaurant-grade, but it couldn't be easier. The fried sage takes a matter of seconds to make, the roasted squash is a simple technique to master, and the risotto just involves stirring the pot constantly!
The result is a recipe you'll happily make throughout the cold-weather season. The recipe tastes as if it's heavy on the cream or butter, but it's the chicken broth and parmesan cheese that give the starchy arborio rice lots of body and depth.
