Strawberry Torte
Very good, but I thought it needed a greater proportion of lady fingers to cream filling to be balanced. I lined my pan with ladyfingers and put a middle layer of strawberries and ladyfingers as other posters suggested, but it still felt like too much "creamy" in every bite. Next time I make this I will make this a four layer dessert, with ladyfingers on the bottom and another three layers of cream and ladyfingers. Be sure to serve very cold; this dessert "melts" quickly. Good flavor and presentation.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini
Very good and easy to substitute ingredients if you're missing something. I also cut a few minutes off the cooking time and it was still excellent.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread
Excellent! Tender and moist. I used a 9-inch pan and baked in for 30 minutes and it came out great. I always use Bob's Red Mill Stone Ground Cornmeal and it worked perfectly in this recipe. A keeper!
