Recipe for family meals :

Baked Brown Sugar Squash

This recipe comes from Steph's website, Country Kitchen Goodness. Steph and her husband Don live in Idaho as Don, who is in the Forces, is stationed there. One of Steph's great loves in life is cooking hence her website which is well worth a visit - click here.

In the introduction to her website Steph had this to say:

"Nothing quite compares to the satisfying feeling of preparing your family a delicious meal they all enjoy. My passion for cooking surfaced when I began experimenting and reading cookbooks as an adult. I am trying to instill this joy in my children so they will hopefully appreciate the art growing up. Cooking is one of my favorite forms of creative expression".

"I usually pair this sweet side dish with meatloaf and baked potatoes . . . a real comfort meal (especially since all three bake simultaneously!)".


2 medium acorn squash, halved and seeded
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

  • Place squash in 11x7-inch baking dish.
