Apple Cranberry Acorn Squash Recipe
I love fall. Not because it means winter is coming (don’t care for winter lol) but because of all the tons of different colors and flavors. If you are looking to try something new, check out this tasty Apple Cranberry Acorn Squash recipe!
Another great thing about this recipe other than the flavor is it helps to heat the house too. That is because you have to bake it in the oven and that helps to make the house nice and toasty. Fall baking really is the best!
