Tuscan Savory Sweet Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2011
This is really quite good-- I only made it the first time because I was looking for a recipe that would use up a strange combination of ingredients in the fridge, but it turned out to be a new favorite around our house. I'm not sure how big the sweet potatoes are supposed to be, but I've taken to only using TWO fairly large ones -- otherwise, the "soup" is basically "flavored mashed potatoes". I recommend doubling the Italian seasoning, and I always go hog wild on the garlic-- I buy the stuff in the jar and huge add a big spoon of it. I don't think that the original recipe mentions it, but using the half-and-half to help when you are pureeing the sweet potatoes is a good trick-- you'll get much smoother results.

Dough Ornament Recipe

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2012
Over all, the recipe works well. I did need to add more water to keep the dough soft. I use small eye screws with a dab of craft glue as the hanger.

Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Stuffed with Spinach and Ricotta

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
Ummm... well, this is "okay", especially if you are the Atkins diet, I suppose. It's actually pretty tasty, but I would strongly disagree with the claim that this is pretty on the plate. I worked really hard to get this right, and yet it still looked distinctively like Shai-Hulud: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandworm_(Dune) If you make MUCH smaller portions than this gives each person and serve it with something a bit "brighter" or "lighter", it would be fine.
