    This recipe is GREAT! Most of the recipes I found are kind of bland, but this one is packed with flavor. The citrus and spices are wonderful. Highly recommended.

    So delicious...just what I needed for a cold rainy day. I used artificial butter and skim milk but still GREAT. I may not puree it so much next time....leave a few lumps of squash, apple and pecans..
