Over the weekend I wanted to cook up a butternut squash for dinner and worried about chopping my fingers off while I worked, but I found a FABULOUS tip I had to share!

“It is very simple to prevent rolling of squash. Just fold up a small towel into quarters so there’s some padding and put the squash on top of the towel, this will help prevent the squash from rolling around upon the initial cut. After that, use the flat surface of the initial cut for the rest of the cuts”

Another tip? Use a very sharp knife!
