Fantastic, it is delicous. I made this and served it with spiral ham
Pretty good. Really easy to make!
In stead of boiling the squash I roasted it, added less salt due to roasting the squash, and added some fresh tyme as well. But still a great recipe.
I made this recipe last week for my family. I had a butternut squash that I got from my local farm (and it was free of charge - can't beat that). At first I as going to use it to make a butternut squash bread that I make on occasion, but decided to look for a different type of recipe. Found this one, made it and the family liked it a lot. The only change I made was to use applesauce instead of the butter. Found this dish to be tasty and healthful.
Instead of cooking the squash in water, I halve it, scoop out seeds, cover each half with waxed paper and microwave until cooked. Much easier! I plan to try this receipe! Love your receipes, etc.
I made this for dinner tonight and they came out great. The honey adds a nice little sweet taste. Fast and easy.

Let’s be honest – I’m always looking for quick meal ideas. By the time I get home from work, I have about a half hour to throw dinner together and get it on the table. Most (okay, ALL of the time) I have an unhappy one-year-old pulling at my leg as if to say, “Mom, why is there not food on my high chair tray yet?!” So, when it comes to meals, the quicker the better.
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a

Sweet corn on the cob is one of summer’s best treats. It’s my go-to stop at the Minnesota State Fair where they grill the corn in the husks, then peel back the husks and dunk them in vats of melted butter…mmm, is it late August yet?! More ...
