One of the first really cold nights I ventured off to the dining hall for a cozy meal. I went to an extremely small college in Northern Colorado and we had an amazing dining hall (lucky, I know!). I marched straight to the pasta station because I knew I needed some warm carbs to help curb the 30-degree temps. The option that evening was butternut squash risotto. I took one bite and had no idea what I was eating but I was completely obsessed with it.
