Just in Time - Squash Recipes

It's that time of year. The time of year when squash takes over your garden and fridge. We only have one squash plant, and it is supplying us with many, many squash.

Here are the ingredients for a delicious pie using squash - Just add a deep-dish pie crust.

PS: Don't you just love my little rooster egg holders. I made them from the cardboard egg cartons. I am told that the large 2-egg-holder one also works good for holding your salt and pepper shakers. This was a craft I had the Crazy Crafters at the senior center make a few months back. They loved them.

 Without any further ado, here is the recipe.

2 cups of shredded yellow squash
1 ½ cups of sugar
3 eggs
½ stick of melted butter                                                                                   
1 teaspoon of lemon flavoring
1 teaspoon of coconut flavoring
1 tablespoon of self-rising flour

Mix and pour into a deep-dish pie shell.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or a little longer until set.

This is a really good pie. Give it a try if you are being overrun with squash. I use yellow squash, I'm nor sure if it would work with zucchini or not.

I have already made four squash bread loaves, fried squash, made a squash casserole and now this morning have made this squash pie. I have yet to make squash patties, but I think that will be next on my supper menu. I am waiting anxiously for my tomatoes to get ripe to make my squash-tomato dish.

As another life safer for you, below are links to other squash recipes on my blog.

If you like these, there are many more great recipes in my cookbook. There is a link to it on my sidebar. It is filled with a lot of simple, old-fashioned recipes, even a few you can't eat --- and, it shows you how to make aprons from blue jeans and has empty recipe pages in the back for you to write down your favorite (or handed-down family) recipes on so they are not forgotten.
There are recipes for blackberries, too. Another favorite summer ingredient of mine.  I have lots frozen in my freezer and I have been taking a blackberry dessert every Wednesday to the Senior Center for them to enjoy.

I hope you are enjoying your garden this year.

Are you being overrun by vegetables, too?


  1. I've never tried squash recipes other than squash casserole, and I pan fry it. I like blackberries better...;)

    1. Hi, Charlotte. You need to try this pie, it is delicious. You would never know you were eating squash. But, I also love blackberries, too!

  2. yo have my mouth watering. Now I am going to use those brown bananas on the counter to make banana bread

    1. Ha, ha, Linda. I think squash bread ranks right up there with banana bread.

  3. Hi Janet, Our garden is filled this year with squash as well. I'm always looking for new recipes. We like Zucchini Bread and we make a lot of it but will surely try the pie. Thanks so much.

    1. Hi, Susie. We only have one plant, but it is providing me with an abundance of squash. I always use yellow squash for my squash bread and it is very good.

  4. Our tomatoes have been hit or miss, but we have *so* many extremely hot chili peppers. I don't know what we'll do with them. When I seed them to work some up, my face feels like it's alive and going to move on its own, haha. Have you ever tried to puree them and then freeze into cubes in an ice cube tray? Then you can just plop a cube into a soup or curry. Wondering how it turns out.

  5. I like you header photo very much. This squash recipe sounds delicious. It's time to try out squash bread and pumpkin bread as fall is coming soon.
