You'll love this sinfully good side dish that works with just about any meal. With brown sugar, butter and honey, what's not to love? One tester even said that it's so good it tastes like candy. We think kids will agree. -Kara de la Vega of Santa Rosa, California

I did cut down the salt and pepper as I review suggested and added some cinnamon. It was wonderful and my husband even thought it was great!!! paired it with BBQ'd pork chops. Definitely making it again!!!!!!!!

Acorn squash is 1 of my favorite veggies. I think this will be in my rotation of how to fix it for a long time.

MY REVIEW

Acorn squash is one of my favorite winter squash. I love eating it with butter itself, since butter already contains a bit salt I just don't add any to it. To make more flavorish I would add a pinch of cinnamon to it and it just tates so great. There are so many ways of eating it, whether from plain to spiced or sweet, they all taste great. I highly recommend it. :-) yum

MY REVIEW

Loved this recipe, but my kids found it a bit "spicy" (which was from the pepper). I like spicy foods, but in my opinion, the pepper interfered with the wonderful sweet taste of the acorn squash and the honey / brown sugar "dressing". Would make it again in a heartbeat - fast, easy, nutritious and delicious.
