Baked Acorn Squash

I love acorn squash, but for some reason it’s always been a difficult vegetable to cook. I’m not sure why because it seems like such an easy one: just cut in half and roast in the oven with a little olive oil and salt and pepper. It’s delicious that way, of course, but today we’re making something different: baked acorn squash with maple syrup and pecans! If you’ve never tried this recipe before then you need to add it to your list of Thanksgiving recipes immediately!
