Hi Jodi. I’m also struggling with getting my little ones to love acorn squash, but I’m not giving up! At least my husband will have it occasionally, so I’m still hopeful.
This recipe is simple, healthy, and delicious. I love to let the natural flavor of the foods come out, instead of drowning them in butter, sugar, etc. It helps me keep to my healthy commitment to myself and my family, too.
Thanks for keeping it simple!
