Entertaining the Bakersfield Way
This colorful soup has a velvety texture and delicious, albeit slightly sweet taste. Roasting the squash delivers deeper flavor and fried sage-butter brings extra nuttiness to the dish. Enjoy this sweet and earthy soup now and freeze any leftovers for later.

Entertaining the Bakersfield Way by Miles Johnson
Hors d’oeuvres need not be cheese and cracker plates fussily attended to with just the right sprig of dill on each delicate wedge of Lacey Swiss. Who has that kind of time? Sometimes, a simple, fiery dip is all it takes to whet the appetite in preparation for the meal and evening ahead. Served with blue corn tortilla chips, Italian bread sticks, or sliced vegetables, a bowl of this ultra-simple spicy dip will please everyone, especially the host.
