I'm a free-lance writer who sometimes needs a break from a long session of working on a story. That's when I escape to the kitchen to whip up something that's good to eat, yet easy to prepare. This is one of my favorites!

"I prepared this delicious recipe tonight and it is a winner. My hubby, who does not love squash, asked for seconds. Remember, acorn squash are hard to cut and you do have to remove the seeds from the center of the squash. Once cut, it is easy to prepare and pop into the oven. We will be having this delicious dish again. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home."

"terribly hard to read. directions skimpy. obviously you don't put the brown sugar and cider on top of an unpeeled squash but there is no indication if you top it to remove the seeds or what. poor quality for TOH."
