      My Daughter LOVES Her New Oven For Roasted Butternut Squash Recipes

      Breville Smart Oven with Air Fry, Brushed Stainless Steel

      Are you ever out of oven space? Do you only have one oven and wish you had another.  My daughter, Haley, called me and said her life has changed when she got this new Breville Smart Oven.

      The perfect size to fit into a small kitchen but this smart oven is big enough to cook whatever she wants too and it is so multi-functional.  Perfect for an apartment and takes the place of a toaster oven

      You’ll Enjoy This Smart Oven

      I told you how excited my daughter Haley was to have her new Breville Smart oven.  She lives in San Francisco and there’s not much kitchen space so this second oven works great for her.  Much better than a toaster oven we both use to have.

      So, I think I will have to get this new multi-purpose oven too even though I already have a double oven. Sometimes, I prefer the smaller oven so I don’t have to heat up my big oven. Here’s another roasted butternut squash recipe, Chicken, Quinoa, Butternut Squash Stew to make in the new oven!
