Tips Of The Month

Each month we share small bits of practical advice that you can implement to improve your life or that of others.


Spiced acorn squash

Fall is upon us and this spiced acorn squash recipe is a fall favorite. It's an easy yet delicious dish to prepare and it makes a nice addition to any holiday meal.
  • Gather the ingredients. You will need 3/4 cup packed brown sugar, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 2 small acorn squash halved and seeded, 3/4 cup raisins, 4 tablespoons butter and 1/2 cup water.
  • Prepare the ingredients. In a bowl mix the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Spoon the mixture into the acorn squash halves. Top each half with 1 tablespoon butter. Once you've done all this, wrap each half in heavy duty foil and seal it tightly.
  • Cook the squash. Pour the water into a 5 quart slow cooker. Place the squash in the slow cooker. You will want the cut side to be facing up. You can stack the packets if need be. Cook on high for 3 1/2 to 4 hours or until the squash is tender. Once cooked open the foil packets carefully to allow steam to escape.


Autumn mason jar luminaries

Mason jar luminaries are a fun, colorful craft that can help make the time change feel brighter. It also serves as a decoration, and can be easily changed for the seasons. Read on to learn how to make some.
  • Gather what you need. For this craft, you'll need modge podge, mason jars, tissue paper, brown construction paper, and a candle.
  • Rip your tissue paper into small pieces. Next, start applying your modge podge to the mason jar, and stick your tissue paper pieces to it.
  • Make your tree. Cut the shape of a tree (or multiple trees) out of your brown construction paper. After that, attach it the same way as the tissue paper.
  • Clean up the excess. Use your modge podge to go over any loose pieces of paper, and then allow it to dry. Finally, light a candle and put it into the mason jar. If you don't want to use a real candle, try a battery powered one instead.
