    Such a cute stuffed squash! I love this idea =D. I don’t eat a ton of squash, but my favourite way would probably have to be in a soup =D.

    @Lauren, I tried a squash soup this weekend and dumped it right down the sink. It was just not that great. It used butternut squash and apples so it was sweet – I found out I’m not a sweet soup person. If you know of any great recipes, I’d love to see them.

    @Amy, Honestly, I’ve never made squash soup at home! Mom always has a couple of boxes of soup in the house, so thats what I have! Over the years, we’ve had Gardenay soups or Knorr ones (my current fave). They’re really rich and creamy!

    I know the salt is fairly high, but I need that – I take salt pills anyways, so its not an issue (more of a bonus!). I’ll keep my eye out for recipes though – I’d love to try it myself!

    I’ve roasted pumpkin twice now using your how-to and you made it so easy. I peeled a Butternut Squash using your instructions and that was easy too.I cubed it and made a delicious soup. This week I will bake this wonderful baked and stuffed Acorn Squash. I need carbs too but not white ones (potatoes, rice,etc.) Thank you for helping me stay on my goal of eating SF,GF,DF and lots of veggies and making it so much fun! Blessings!

    @Sandy Gillett, Let me know what you think – I loved it. Joe ate it (not the skin, though – but I always eat the skin) but he didn’t go for the leftovers. I was grateful because I got them all to myself.

    @Amy,
    I made this tonight and my mom and I loved it. I ate all of my half, my mom is saving half of her half for lunch tomorrow. Another winning recipe Amy!

    I have a recipe similar to this, filling an acorn squash with yummy apples. I know how good your recipe is.

    Check my recipe and you will find another way to fill acorn squash with cabbage and cheese. It was good. Completely different from the apples.

    My peeler keeps getting stuck on the drawer and got bent! I could cry…I’m pretty picky about the style!

    Your stuffed squash recipe looks delicious as do your Kale Chips in the previous post. Will definitely try those! Thanks so much for linking to me. It was a great way to start the day today — to get up and read your post this morning and see a link to me in it:) Have a great week!

    I love all these stuffed squash recipes I’m seeing around. Sounds wonderful! I used your Y-peeler idea the other day for my butternut, by the way – I just never tried, seeing as how my other peeler was just not working – and the Y-peeler was awesome!

    I made butternut squash soup on the weekend and used your technique, wow did it work great. My peeler is a Y type but bought it at Ikea so very cheap. After using it on the squash Im determined to find a better quality one for my kitchen or maybe I will win yours..???

    Thanks for the great blog

    @Karen K, What kind of butternut squash soup did you make? Do you mind sharing? I made one over the weekend, too, with leeks, apples, and curry. I dumped it right down the sink. It was too sweet for me.

    [Reply]

    Karen K Reply:

    I think I made the same one as you from Gluten Free for Good. I didn’t mind it but would maybe not put the apple and curry in it next time and a few more herbs to make it a bit more savory. I liked the leeks in it though.

    Cute idea to serve it in the shell! It’s fun to serve soup like that as well.

    Your squash sounds great. I’ve never tried acorn squash, but since we’re branching out in that area I’ll have to give it a try.

    I just started getting posts from your blog and would love a new peeler! Your recipe looks tasty, in fact I may just try it tonight! I have made something similar in the past using applesauce, agave and butter to fill the squash. I like the idea of the diced apples and nut, though! Yum!

    Amy,
    I made pumpkin soup last week with coconut milk and ginger. Very good, but the taste was so unusual I like the butternut squash soup taste better; maybe because that is what I am used to tasting. That peeler would make life easier and be an encouragement to peel more squashes. :>)
    Your recipes continue to be great! Barbara

    A nice giveaway. I sure could use a safer peeler in my kitchen. I just found your blog the other day. My husband needs to eat gluten-free and I’m trying to find some “good” gluten-free recipes. There are a lot of disasters out their. Yours look yummy! I’ll definitely be checking this site out! Thanks!

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Jenn C., I’m so sorry that you’ve had some bad experiences…part of it might be that gluten-free baking requires an unlearning and relearning process. Please let me know if you run into any bumps and I’ll do my best to help you along.

    I still have some disasters myself…it’s never fun to have to dump an entire pan of muffins in the trash.

    I’m with you on enjoying squash (and sweet potatoes) very simply normally, but it is fun to dress them up from time to time. Yours looks lovely! How cool you’re giving away your nifty peeler! I cut and peeled two sugar pumpkins this morning. I’m guessing if it works on squash that it works on pumpkin, too. Certainly would come in handy! I absolutely adore cushaw, but can’t find any around here. I’m so envious that someone else has cushaw to use for a pie.

    So much good stuff here, Amy–thanks! It seems the blogosphere in general is way busy with great things going on these days–love that! :-)

    This sounds great, and I have all the ingredients on hand already. I didn’t know you could eat the peel though…?

    Amy Reply:

    @Iris, I love the peel. It has a great texture to it. I also love mango peels when the mango is perfectly ripe – if it’s not quite ripe is has a bitter flavor.
