    An easy side dish. Wonderful flavors. We love it!
    The first time I made this I substituted ground allspice for the coriander. This also came out well.
    The acorn squash has variations in flavor. Once, because the vegetable was bland, the dish did not turn out so yummy.
    The skin comes out surprisingly crispy and good to eat. Martha said on her show that the skin contains a lot of nutritive properties.

    I made this last year from the magazine and I was hoping to find the recipe again on the website. Here it is and I cannot wait to make this tonight for dinner.
