Cranberry Sauce I
I just finished making this version and love it! Even warm! -- -- Little variation . . . I used 3/4 white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar with a very light sprinkle of cinnamon as others recommended. -- -- I used the stick blender to break the berries up a bit (because I don't think my family will like it too chunky). -- I was surprised to see it setting so quickly as it cooled. The key to it setting up properly is not to overcook it. -- Watch out the berries POP as they're cooking and splatter a bit. Wipe it up so it doesn't stain.

Ultimate Double Chocolate Cookies
Only change I made to this recipe was to roll the dough balls in powdered sugar before baking. Baked 10 minutes and the let them cool on sheet for 10 minutes. Very Very Yummy - Good coffee cookie! Printed and put in recipe book for future use.

Garden Fresh Tomato Soup
I used the recipe for techniques.....I already had homemade canned tomatoes from the garden so all I had to do was open the (5) quart jars and heat them to a boil along with the (2cups)chicken broth....I sauteed a medium onion and a poblano pepper in lots of margarine (1/2c)....I pureed that and then put it back in the pan to add the flour to make the roux.....I added about 3 tbls (a little at a time) of hot tomato/broth mix to the pan of roux and wisked.....I then put that into the big pot of tomato/broth mix (while wisking)....Pureed it one more time to make sure all the pieces were gone.....Tasted and added 2 tbl sugar....May add a can of cheddar cheese soup...haven't decided yet...will wait for more opinions on how this basic tomato soup tastes! Thanks for posting it!
