Most of the year, my family runs a pretty garden-variety vegetables stand. Come October, however, it becomes a popular Halloween haunt, where I showcase our pick-of-the-patch pumpkins.

I'm a wife and mother of eight children. I like baking more than cooking, so I enjoy dressing up a spice cake mix with nuts, canned pumpkin and a homemade cream cheese frosting to create this fabulous dessert. —Joyce Platfoot, Wapakoneta, Ohio
"The recipe for this delicious spice cake originally called for cooking and mashing a pumpkin and making the cake from scratch," writes Laurine Lockwood of McGregor, Minnesota. "With my large family, I don't have time for all of that. I much prefer this easy version!"
If you like curry, you'll love this unique soup from Kathy Hill of Catlettsburg, Kentucky. She generously flavors it with that spice, as well as garlic, red pepper flakes and coriander. For extra flair, serve each hot bowlful with a dollop of sour cream.
I love this recipe because it is so full of wonderful flavors. A little spicy and a little sweet, these fabulous meatballs score huge at tailgate parties or holiday buffets. —Joyce Conway, Westerville, Ohio
I have to give my husband credit for this cheesecake. He found a recipe like it and asked if I could make it for him. I always make it for his birthday, and my four-year-old daughter loves to help.—Monika Walsh, Monterey, California
