Chocolate Syrup
I normally have a very strict rule about NOT reviewing a recipe unless I make it EXACTLY as the author wrote it (a real pet-peeve of mine!)...but, I'm making an exception this time, and here's why: I *almost* didn't try this recipe because of several revews claiming that it doesn't "thicken." But, I was desperately in need of some chocolate syrup, so I made a half-batch (just in case it didn't go well!), and afterward I decided that I MUST write a review because it would've been a shame to have NOT satisfied my chocolate craving because of misleading reviews! Here's what I did that differs from the original instructions: 1) I only made a HALF batch, and 2) Per other reviewers' suggestion, I mixed the water and sugar together, heated until the sugar was completely dissolved, THEN added the cocoa powder and salt (and vanilla at the end). I don't know if the sugar-and-water-together part is what makes the thickening-difference, but after I added the cocoa powder (which was a GENERIC brand, by the way), and the mixture started simmering, it seemed to have thickened enough that I was satisfied, so I stopped there. I'm not EXACTLY sure how long that took, but it was not more than 5-7 minutes. This mixture DOES thicken slightly more after a good while in the refrigerator but is still "pourable" (like Hershey's syrup), even after a night in the fridge. I also did not find this to be too bitter. NOTE: if you're looking for FUDGE sauce, that is a DIFFERENT recipe altogether. :)

Mahogany Chicken Wings
Super-yummy! But, watch them carefully in the oven. If they're in too long, the sauce turns VERY sticky-- like glue! But, the flavor was still out of this world. :)

Butternut Squash Soup
This is excellent. I DID roast the squash in the oven and cooked the onion in broth (rather than sauteeing); I only had enough ingredients to make a half-batch and only used 4 oz. of cream cheese. However, as other reviewers have stated, it would be delicious withOUT the cream cheese! It's a simple recipe, but the results are phenomenal. Thanks, Mary!
