A homemade soup is the perfect complement to a chilly fall day. Better still when you can save time by preparing it in the slow cooker! Whether you’re looking for comfort food or an easy weeknight dinner, we’ve sourced three hearty, easy-to-prep soup recipes.

I'm diabetic so I substituted equal parts of Truvia honey for regular honey in the Butternut Squash soup and it was delicious!

I recently discovered an awesome tip for dealing w/ things like squash. Cut the butternut squash in thirds, drop the pieces in boiling water for about 3 minutes, remove from water, let cool slightly, remove seeds, then peel, cube as needed. This honestly works very well and eliminates the worry of cut knuckles and such.

I agree with @brainpup about the prep time for the Butternut Squash Soup. But I have to admit that I like to use the packaged re-cubed butternut squash when I can find it.

I would use Heavy Cream because I normally have it available in the fridge anyway. If I were trying to cut back on the fat, I would use Half and Half.

Prep time is out a whack on the Squash Soup, it took me 40 minutes to get everything chopped and peeled and deseeded and then I got stuck when the recipe said to cover the veggies with Vegetable broth and I went and bought Chicken broth like the ingredients told me to !! so what am I suppose to do with the chicken broth I bought ??
