"This recipe is so good! In addition to making it with butternut squash, I've also made it with Heart of Gold and Sweet Dumpling squash. The results were equally delicious!"

"this was a nice twist to butternut squash. I didn't taste the honey much thought and I would cut back the cream to make it a thicker consistency. All in all good and a keeper."
