Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies
I made these with the three types of sugar as suggested, but found them too sweet and sort of oily. perhaps because I used real peanut butter instead of hydrogenated peanut spread? Made these to accompany a thank you note, but seems like a waste of ingredients and three hours. As a gluten-free, flourless recipe this would be okay, but for the average diet I'm sure there are better out there.

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup
Not sure I'll ever use canned soup again. If you don't like the skins in your soup, blanch the tomatoes in boiling water for about 30 seconds, until the skins crack, then drain in a colander and rinse in cool tap water. The skins will slip off easily. Used an immersion blender instead of a food mill, and it worked well. Delicious with a grilled gruyere and cheddar sandwich and carrot/celery sticks.

Lamb Madras Curry
Oh. My. GOODNESS!! This made my house smell like heaven, and was absolutely delicious! As per other reviews, I went easy on gthe tamarind, and since the instructions don't say when to add the curry leaves, I added them with the cardamom and fennel. Funny thing about the curry leaves. HAving never made curry before, I went to an Indian grocery store and asked if they had them. "Yes." he said, and went back to his bookkeeping. "Um where are they?" "In my store." I tried not to laugh. I had no idea where to look. Smart aleck. Finally asking if he could be a bit more specific, he sent someone to show us where they were. (In the refrigerated sectio, for those of you that don't frequent Indian grocery stroes) Served this over basmati rice with premade naan, mint chutney, and plain yogurt. I would have made mango salad if they were in season, but cucumber salad would have been good too. YUM!
