  1. I’ve tried a few of your recipes thus far and this one is my favorite! Thanks for sharing such a yummy recipe.

  2. On the stove now : ) I added a little bit of curry and a little bit of cinnamon as my family loves those flavors.

  3. If you don’t want to use orange juice, just substitute a pear for a slight sweetness. That is what I use when making butternut squash soup.

  4. do you actulayy need the orane juice in this rescipe? I don’t ever buy or consume that beverage – is there an alternative to that ingredient or can I just leave it out?
