My favorite type of recipe is one that I can keep transforming over and over again. My Caramelized Butternut Squash is one of those recipes. Not only is it a tasty side, but I have managed to sneak it into a few desserts too.

First I made an amazing Butternut Squash Swirl Ice Cream with it. If you like dessert but aren't a fan of super sweet things, try it. You will LOVE it. Well, since I had all that ice cream ... I figured why not an ice cream float? Oh, and why not add some bourbon while I'm at it?
