    Derf's Note:

    I finally found a squash recipe that DH likes and enjoyed. This is so simple, revised to suit our taste, from Chef Micheal Smith, my favourite TV chef.

      All I have to say is this recipe is fabulous and easy! The only addition I made was to sprinkle top with a touch of cinnamon & brown sugar.... DELICIOUS! This one had DH proclaiming at the table... "I love Gourds!" LOL! Thanks for a seasonal & delicious side dish, Derf!

      I have a similar recipe except that it has a sprinkle of brown sugar and it states to garnish with currant jelly!

      Wonderful recipe! I had two tiny acorns; they were so cute filled with applesauce! My homemade applesauce was a little tart, so I added some brown sugar, but not much. Easy and different recipe I will use often! Thanks!
