Spiced Butternut Squash Soup
Excellent soup! I omitted the onion and doubled the leeks (because I had them) and left out the sherry (because I didn't have any) but it was still marvelous! I made mine with 6 cups of chicken broth and it was the perfect consistency. Very pretty served with a swirl of sour cream and a sprinkle of fresh snipped chives. Will definitely make again and again...

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie
Very good as is. I agree with those who say to wait and try it before adding spices. The only thing I added was a sprinkle of coarse sanding sugar over the crust. The crust on the pie is delicious and beautiful! If your pie is turning out mushy and runny, it could be because of the apples you are using. Tarter apples hold up better in pies...a lot of apples will just turn to mush. So stick to Granny Smiths or other very tart apples. I used Red Haralsons from the tree in my yard and they worked perfectly.

Stephanie's Freezer Spaghetti Sauce
Due to mixed reviews, I cooked my sauce on the stovetop until it was the desired consistency (about two and a half hours). As other reviewers have mentioned, peeling the tomatoes first is a good idea. I thought the recipe was pretty fantastic. Only changes I made were to use fresh herbs instead of dried (because I had them) and I added a couple of bay leaves. Also, I'd recommend cutting the salt in half. You can always add more later. I used the sauce last night for baked ravioli (beef ravioli layered with the sauce and shredded mozzarella) and it got rave reviews.
