I don't know what sort of pumpkin I bought but it was torture to clean and cut it. However the finished product was good; sweet and savoury at the same time. But it's a little too ordinary for a meal. Great as a snack while watching TV or reading a book. Read More

Delicious recipe - my kids loved them. I added sweet potato and potato to the mix and used wholemeal flour which gave it a little extra crunch. Great way to get kids to eat their veges! Read More

I was quite impressed with this simple idea. It really was quite good. Even my fussy 9 year old liked it. It is sweet and very filling because of the fiber. I will make it part of our regular meals. Read More

This is really yummy. My kids don't like it but my husband and I ate the whole thing. I use olive oil instead of butter and I added sweet paprika and garlic powder too. Similar to sweet potato fries. I left the pieces in the ziploc bag while doing other things and it started to get a little watery but I proceeded to cook the pieces and they turned out fine. Will definitely make again. Thanks!

This wasn't as 'crunchy' as I had hoped I'm not sure where I went wrong. But it tasted very good. It's nice to have a little variety with your veggies. Oh yeah and it works well with butternut squash! Read More
