Butternut Squash Soup
Simply amazing! This soup will become one of my favorites. I halved the cream cheese because I didn't want the soup to be too heavy. Next time I will use only a third of the cream cheese. Also, I added a little garlic, and a touch of curry powder and it was divine. Rich, smooth, creamy, and comforting. A perfect winter soup.

Thai Beef Salad
Absolutely delicious! The lime dressing with cilantro and mint was so fresh, with the hint of fish sauce and chili sauce. It had a slight kick that everyone loved. Very authentic flavors.

Baked Flan
Absolutely fantastic! I made it for the first time today, for my Mexican Fiesta dinner party for eight people. I usually try to make a recipe ahead but didn't get around to it this time, so I was keeping my fingers crossed the whole time that it would turn out. I followed the recipe exactly and was not disappointed. I did bake for a full 60 minutes, and next time may add 5 more mins. to set the middle just a bit more. The middle should be jiggly but not wet. The water bath is important to keep the custard smooth and velvety the whole way through. I let it cool to room temperature, then put it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to really set. I pulled it out about 30 mins. before serving. It was a hit.
