Rated 5 out of 5 by from A SIMPLE WAY TO ENJOY THE BENEFITS OF ACORN SQUASH Recipe was simple to understand. As a self taught chef/foodie and someone who teachers others how to cook vegetables (I volunteer in a food bank and a lot of the clients have never eaten or tried some of the vegetables we give out) that they would not ordinarily eat, this recipe is something I would definitely pass on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this... I tried this recipe but made mine in the microwave....just poke holes in squash then cook in microwave for about 6 minutes longer if needed....then cut in half, scoop out seeds, and the trivia brown sugar and I used spray butter for less calories....delicious

Rated 4 out of 5 by from YUM !!!! I usually fill my squash with unsweetened applesauce and bake, but this adds a nice buttery flavor that compliments the squash wonderfully. My son loves it and i can know that he is getting his vegetables......he even asks for more! Win win!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Acorn Squash Awesome recipe. I sometimes use a pinch of sea salt, cinnamon, and the baking blend or packets if I don't have the baking blend. Eat as a treat and sometimes as desert or for breakfast.
