"I really liked this! My husband doesn't like sweet side dishes much, but still ate all of his, which I think is a good sign. I used maple syrup instead of brown sugar (and left out the butter). It was so easy!"
"Great recipe! I might increase the amount of apple and brown sugar. This is a good twist on acorn squash."
"This was soooo good with braised pork chops and fresh green beans. I used Craisins instead of fresh cranberries and fresh orange zest instead of orange rind. It was delicious."
"Where are you Tonkcats? I love your recipes and this one was no exception, I loved it! .Instead of fresh cranberries I used some left over brandied cranberries and cut back on the sugar. The orange rind gives a nice subtle flavor. Excellent recipe thanks Tonkcats"
"I reduced the amount of brown sugar and melted butter, and added cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg. A delicious addition to an early fall dinner plate!"
"This was really good. My daughter said it tasted like dessert! The orange zest really adds to the flavor."
"WONDERFUL!! My mom absolutly loves this recipe. I have to make it at least once a week now."
"AWESOME! Nice blend of flavors...especially liked the addition of the orange peel and used double the amount called for. This is an easy and special dish."
"This was very very good, a nice way to bring in the fall. I think I have a sweet tooth...but this was way to sweet for me! I think maybe I will cut down the brown sugar and cranberries next time--there will be a next time! I added some spinach, sage, rosemary, skipped the butter, and garlic."
"I have never been a big fan of acorn squash and have only had it baked with LOTS of butter and brown sugar. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the combination of the tart cranberries and the flavor of the orange rind with the squash. I think my daughter may have added more than the reccomended orange rind, but it was just fine. The cranberries added beautiful color to this dish also."
"We love this! Thanks so much for sharing."
"Oops- sorry. I forgot the stars and this is a five star all the way!"
"This was a pleasant change from the usual sweet squash recipes - the tartness of the cranberries was a perfect contrast! I cut the recipe back to 2 servings with no difficulty at all. Thanx Tonkcats!"
"Wonderful! Delicious, easy to do, quick to prepare and it looks gorgeous. The perfect recipe. This tastes more like dessert than a side dish."
