    Dear LORD butternut squash. I feel like I need a chainsaw to cut that baby in half. Otherwise, I spend 10-15 minutes with a giant knife hacking at it hoping I don’t cut off part of my hand.

    I’m awful at peeling just about everything, but I recently tried with a butternut squash and found it quite impossible so I’d love some tips.  I voted on Shape as well!

    I’d love to win one of these!  I am not great at folding (as in egg whites, etc in baking), it takes technique and gets tedious!

    And I don’t have anything in particular I need help with, for me it’s all trial and error.  for example, I learned the mandolin was not for me when I sliced a huge chunk out of my palm cutting sweet potato fries.  And then missed around 5 days of work since a nurse can’t work with a big cut in her hand! (no possibility of keeping your mitts clean!)

    My husband LOVES onions–I could live my life without them–I would love any ideas on how to prep them without the tears–I swear, I start crying as soon as the knife hits the onion. Also, anything that makes dicing up potatoes faster–I don’t know if it’s my knife, or static or what, but when I cut through them, they end up stuck on the knife. 

    I voted on Shape.com!

      My wife holds a slice of bread in her mouth while she cuts. Claims it keeps her from tear-ing up. I just stand back as far as possible while cutting and it seems to work for me. 

  • Christine

    Squash of any kind..brutal.

    • joe

      Biggest, heaviest knife.. sharp. Rock the blade and it will do it. Just watch the fingers. Once it goes,it goes. Don’t want the digits anywhere near when it does.
