Apple Cranberry Squash

I am excited to be able to post for a second time in November for The Secret Recipe Club. My assignment is Angela's Kitchen.  I had the privilege of posting Angela's Blog in April when I made her fabulous Black Bean Salsa Chicken. Angela is a dedicated Gluten and Dairy Free blogger, providing great recipes and tips for people who really need help with special food allergies.  Angela is very involved in her Gluten and Dairy Free Community, speaking for various organizations about Gluten and Dairy Free issues.  As a gardener and home food preserver I really appreciate that Angela is a Master Food Preserver. When I went to her blog to pick a recipe today, I knew that I would find a delicious recipe right away and I did.  Please stop by and say hello to Angela and tell her that Miz Helen said Hi!
