Well, I love all the ingredients, but didn't care for the final outcome. It reminded me of yellow split pea soup. If you love split pea soup, maybe this is a good alternative? My husband said it reminded him of heated squash babyfood. Perhaps I did something wrong? Sorry about the not so good review but I know I like to hear when other people here try the recipes. Thanks for the submitting though!
