Butternut Squash Soup with Caramelized Onions and Apples
Bill Wavrin, Rancho la Puerta, Baja, Mexico

Nancy F from Houston, TX wrote: "This soup is wonderful! It was a fabulous addition to my dinner party, and I received complements on it all night. I used sour cream as a garnish for my less health conscience husband and guests, but I prefer the tanginess of the yogurt."

Sautéed Green Beans with Mushrooms and Pearl Onions

Maril from Maine wrote: "Very good! This will easily become a regular. It was easy to make and delicious. A good dish for company."

Fall Salad with Asian Pears and Sherry

Sanjiva from from Boston, MA wrote: "I love Asian pears, so I'm always looking for recipes with them. This salad was outstanding and quite elegant too."

Pumpkin Bisque

An anonymous FoodFit cook wrote: "This is really good—rich and satisfying. It's hard to believe there is no cream!"

Sweet Potato Soufflé

Shelly from San Antonio, TX wrote: "This was fantastic! It's perfect for holiday dinners, especially with vegetarians at the table."

Hearty Maple-Wheat Bread

Judy from Stoneham, MA wrote: "Everyone liked this's an excellent choice."

Wild Rice with Dried Cranberries and Walnuts

Pam from Virginia wrote: "Even the kids liked this one. The cranberries gave it a nice texture, as well as the apples. You could omit the apples and add mandarin oranges for a cold salad. Very versatile."

Cranberry Salsa

BA from Oklahoma wrote: "Yummy as a chip dip, served over grilled pork tenderloin or wrapped in a flour tortilla with leftover turkey!"

Simply Roasted Turkey

Lucy from Seattle, WA wrote: "This is an easy turkey recipe, so it's great for beginners or people who don't want to get too fancy with their bird. Plus, it's delicious!"

St. Supery Pumpkin Pie
Sunny Cristadoro, St. Supery Winery, Napa Valley, CA

Anne H from Alberta, CA "I loved this recipe. I doubled the batch, and made one pie with crust, six tarts and one crustless pie, which was just as good. So good, I took the pie with crust to work for coffee break and everyone loved it—even people that normally don't eat pumpkin pie. This is definitely a 'make again'."
