Vegan Broccoli Soup
This was pretty good and super easy. I usually read all the reviews before making a recipe from this site, but didn't have time. So I just followed the recipe. I didn't have potatoes, so chucked in two big carrots instead. And I misread the recipe and used 6 cups broth. Overall, it was good (and SO easy) but it needs a little tinkering. I mixed it with pre-cooked rainbow quinoa, and it was super delicious that way, but as a soup alone, I think it needs another ingredient (maybe the potatoes the recipe calls for :-) Anyway, great stuff! Thank you!

Caprese on a Stick
Delicious and easy. Trickiest part is pronouncing it (I always forget how to pronounce this word for some reason.. "cah-PREHY-zay": for my future reference :-) I used a marinated mozzarella so didn't add salt, pepper, or oil. Will chuck on a splash of balsamic next time. I used fancy cherry tomatoes which were a variety of types/colors but the best tasting were definitely the red cherry tomatoes- so I will stick with red in future. I used slightly-longer-than toothpick-length, skewer size (fat) wooden picks and they were perfect. Quite yummy! Thank you!

Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Blue Cheese
Amazing! I put brown sugar on bacon after wrapping and let them sit overnight in the fridge before baking- divine. Put one half marcona almond in each date (along with the blue cheese). Bacon held them together fine- no toothpicks needed. Cooked 20/10. Also served the chevre figs (which were much quicker to make- these took 1 hour total to make & bake- the figs took 6 minutes total)- both were equally adored. You can make both for the same event and daze & amaze people- TWICE! If you get the fancy nitrate free etc... bacon, it will only make about 20-24 appetizers. So you will have lots of leftover dates. I used my extra dates to test this recipe out with turkey bacon (note: nowhere near as good as with regular bacon, but still tasty) and the turkey bacon made a lot more appetizers. But I still have leftover dates. So maybe adjust recipe to say 1/2 pound dates. Final note: definitely use a 2 tier system to bake (I used cooling racks over a baking sheet), and definitely put aluminum foil on the bottom tray, as otherwise it will take forever to clean the bottom pan. And be prepared for a giant huff of smoke when you open the oven at the end. It's pretty wild. Have windows open and/or fans on. :-) Amazing recipe! Really sensational! Thank you!
