Soups offer soul-satisfying contentment. In fact, they should share top billing with the usual choices of best-loved comfort foods. These recipes use a variety of fall and winter produce, such as squash, apples, and pumpkin, to create rich flavors that are perfect for the season. What's more, the soups can be frozen and then easily thawed and warmed for those upcoming chilly days.

"Creamy Fall Soups" is from the October 2003 issue of Southern Living.
