I know it's squash, and I'm guessing by the outside that it is not a slice and cook, but I am not sure exactly what variety, and am looking for some good recipes as well as squash identification :)!

Come check out !

I know it's a little out of the realm of first time moms, but I figured we all have to feed our families!

Ask my husband since he is the cook he can't tell what it is. And said it's easier to tell how to cook it by cutting into it

We call these gourds.  I've never tried to cook one.

They are yellow crookneck squash, a winter squash.  Cut in half, scoop the seeds, and bake until tender.

Add a little butter and some brown sugar and it is wonderful> My dad used to make it that way when I was little

I agree with crookneck squash.  My mom used to call them Big Bird squash when we were kids.  I've never cooked them.

I thought yellow crookneck squash was smooth skinned, and a summer squash.
