"Very flavorful. But I'd really like to know if anyone can tell me what the beautiful place setting is! Gorgeous!"
"This is, by far, the best butternut squash soup recipe I have made. But I doubled the chicken broth to make it less of a paste and I didn't peel the apple; left in all that fiber. Made a 1/2 recipe and my family of 2 nearly finished it off! I served it in homemade bread bowls with apple pie for dessert."
"My first time cooking w/ butternut squash - such an easy recipe - and incredibly flavorful. We like spicy food, so added more cayenne when served. Very delicious - and filling! Can't wait for leftovers tonight!"
