  1. Rick says:

    Halle, is the nutritional information listed based per serving or for the entire recipe?

  2. Halle Cottis says:

    It is based on per serving. So half of an acorn squash is what the nutritional info is for.

  3. Rhonda Harader Cain says:

    Bought acorn squash today just for this. : )

  4. Catherine Garbus says:

    am making this right now i actually had all the ingredients and i am much better at cooking than baking :)

  5. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    LOL Catherine :) Let me know how it turns out. I just had my leftovers for dinner tonight…YUM!

  6. Catherine Garbus says:

    smells great so far :)

  7. Debbie Banks says:

    Although this acorn squash looks awesome, I had to tell you I made your zucchini cookies today and omgosh! were they ever delicious! I too will get an acorn squash as soon as I see one. Thanks again Halle for all of these wonderful recipes!

  8. Catherine Garbus says:

    yum its great :)

  9. Debbie Banks says:

    I have to tell you Halle, my daughter LOVED your zucchini cookies (we all did!) but she just called and said ‘Do you have any of your cookies left, I mean Halles’ cookies?!!’ That was classic. She loves YOUR cooking!

  10. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    LOL Debbie…Huge smile on my face, thanks :)

  11. Debbie Banks says:

    Oh since I have you here, I just messaged Rhonda about making a butternut squash recipe. I was going to make the soup but don’t have any heavy cream on hand. Do you have a good recipe for it. I want to make it for dinner tonight.

  12. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Hey Debbie, You can also use milk or half and half for the soup. Last year I made a butternut squash casserole where I mashed some squash, added some pumpkin spice and some cubed chicken and topped it with some chopped pecans and drizzled it with some butter. It was delicious. You could try something like that?

  13. Debbie Banks says:

    Yes! Minus the chicken since I am having chicken cacciatore with it. Thanks Halle!

  14. Debbie Banks says:

    I did that Halle but I decided to add a sliced apple with the squash. SO good!

  15. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    oh yum!! Will try that! did you mash the squash?

  16. Debbie Banks says:

    No, I didn’t mash it, I just cut it into pieces and the apple into 1/4″ slices, mixed the pumpkin spice and a little bit of organic sugar and some melted butter and stirred it in, covered it and let it bake for about 50 min. After it cooked I sprinkled macadamia nuts on top.

  17. Rhonda Harader Cain says:

    Had this for dinner and will have some for lunch tomorrow….LOVED it!
