Acorn Squash

Acorn squash comes into season just as the nights are getting cool and people start thinking about dinners by the fire. My kids love eating dinner by the fire, we have been doing this since they were little and they all have such fond memories. It is not uncommon for one of the kids to ask if we can have dinner that way at our house.

This recipe adds a slight twist to the traditional version of roasted acorn squash. A sweet, buttery squash with a hint of cinnamon, allspice and hazelnut.  Great for a holiday or anytime.  This is relatively easy to make and the kids love it!
