  1. I love acorn squash so I was really happy to find this list of recipes. I want to try them all! I started with the stuffed acorn squash with cranberries and apples because I had a bunch of apples in the refrigerator. It’s so good! I was skeptical about the kale but now I wouldn’t dream of leaving it out. Its bitterness is the perfect compliment to the sweet and sour apples and cranberries. I’m going to try the nourish bowls next. I feel healthier just reading that recipe. Thanks for a great collection!

  2. Had no idea there were so many acorn squash recipes! So far I’ve made the hummus and curry with chickpeas which came out amazing. Looking forward to making more of these in the coming months. Thanks for this!
