Sweet Acorn Squash


Yum! Yum! Yum! I love the harvest season of fall for its squash! I love squash, especially acorn squash. It truly can be turned into a dessert!  This is one of my favorite recipes for fall, particularly, for squash! Mr. B is finicky, when it comes to squash. It is a hate-love relationship; either he entirely hates a recipe for the same squash, while completely loving another one. With him, you truly just do not know!  So, when I first baked this recipe, it took too much prodding for him to take a bite. When he did, Mr. B declared his love for it!

This recipe is truly a dessert as it is so sweet, warm, and comforting. Plus, it is extremely allergy friendly and so easy to make!
