With 4 TBSP maple syrup and 4 tsp brown sugar, it is criminal to omit sugar content in the nutritional info of this recipe. A real blunder.

Sometimes cutting a squash in half can be a real challenge. I have found that by pricking the skin and then microwaving the squash for 2 - 3 minutes (depends on size), it helps with cutting.
