Warm Camembert Salad
I'm sorry to say this dish just fell completely flat for me. Nothing about it was appetizing enough to try it again.

Roasted Squash Soup
Verona’s recipe is delightful. You’ll get excellent results if you just do everything per her notes. It’s a beautiful golden yellow colored dish, with good tummy warming flavor. First note: As written you get a bunch o’ soup, almost a gallon in my case, so, if you build the full recipe keep this in mind. Might be a very good idea to change the serving size to smaller level before you print it all up. Verona’s very specific in her squash types. Personally, I find that as long as the squash types are all yellow, you’ll come out fine. Big note: Please, anytime you cook squash, do it in the oven, just as Verona suggests. If you boil squash you not only pull all the water-soluble vitamins out of it, you pull the sugar. You’ll be amazed to find that if you cook squash properly, it’s so sweet you NEVER add sugar, syrup or whatever. You see “add sugar” constantly in squash recipes, and honestly, it’s ridiculous. Try roasting it just once, and you’ll almost certainly agree. Oh, great “guy recipe” here, dudes. It’s not only virtually bullet proof but it has a Manly Mess Rating of at least 7 out of 10.

Apple Bacon Tomato Soup
This one just didn't work for me. The dish is fine, and as a bean soup, it's pretty good. But the apple/wine thing did nothing for me at all. These are the ingredients that attracted me in the first place. Made up the dish just as written looking forward to some magic. But, it simply wasn't there. Frankly, if I were to make this dish again, I'd forgo the wine/apple thing, and just build out an good, thick soup. I'd rate that dish at least a 4 star.
