My parents turned me on to olive oil years ago when my dad started using it to lower his cholesterol. But even though I knew it was healthier for us to use rather than butter in the frying pan, sometimes the flavor of it combined with what I was making just seemed off.
Thanksgiving dinner is about the only time I can get away with serving squash at the dinner table - I love it, but the rest of my family not so much.
