Baked Acorn Squash with Spicy Maple Syrup

Southwest Spaghetti Squash

"This recipe was AMAZING! I used two cans of organic black beans, two cans of Ro-Tel tomatoes and garlic. This was also one of those recipes that was even better the next day!"


Butternut Squash Bread

"Absolutely divine! Because of the eggs and butter, it's similar in taste/feel to a brioche or challah."

"I have made variations on this salad before. The combination of roasted butternut chunks and feta is always a winner!"
