Lentil Soup
I really enjoyed this soup. I've made it twice now, both times I use a mixture of the red and green lentils, but once I used a can of crushed tomatoes, and the next time I used a can of diced tomatoes. I have to say I enjoyed the batch that used the diced tomatoes more, I found the crushed tomatoes tended to overpower everything, while the diced tomatoes nicely complemented all the other flavors. Just my personal preference, either way the recipe is still really tasty. Thank you for sharing it! :)

Healing Cabbage Soup
This was a really good soup. I added chopped carrots, celery, green and red peppers to the onion and garlic as it was frying up, and then used low-sodium chicken broth instead of the water and bouillon. I had a bag of coleslaw mix that I used for the cabbage, and as I didn't have italian-style canned tomatoes, I chopped up fresh tomatoes and added some dried basil and oregano to the soup to make up for it. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

Pumpkin Pancakes
This was a really good recipe. I followed the recipe almost exact, the only thing I modified was the flour. Instead of 2 cups white flour, I used 1 cup white flour, 1/2 cup whole wheat, 1/4 cup minute oats, 1/4 cup wheat bran, and about a tbsp of ground flax seeds. It makes for a really thick batter, but I just made sure to spread it out on the griddle instead of thinning it out with extra milk. The only thing I wasn't too sure about was the ginger, as you can feel the heat from it. I haven't decided whether I like that aspect yet or not. I may just decrease the amount I use in the future, but overall, this was a really tasty recipe. Thank you! :)
