I love my slow cooker because it's so easy to make dinner with one! This flavorful curry was first created for a potluck and since then, the recipe has been requested often.—Jess Apfe, Berkeley, California
"The recipe for this tender and flavorful squash came from Russia," writes Natasha Kearns of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. "My mom used to make this colorful side dish often in summer. It's especially hearty when served over rice."
This squash soup is nicely flavored and tastes wonderful on cool October days. The combination of chili powder, cumin and cayenne pepper gives it just enough kick. You can make different kinds of spooky Halloween images with the sour cream! —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
