I enjoy squash and Barb your recipe did not let me down. Great combination of flavors. Next time I will cover the squash for the first half hour of baking and uncover for the last 45 minutes. I basted the edges of the squash for the last half hour to get them browned Thankd - I'll enjoy this one again

This was an intriguing combination - I would not have considered using Dijon mustard on acorn squash - the honey balanced it out nicely. It was tasty.
