Tomato Barley Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
I really like this soup. I made the soup exactly as the recipe was written the first time. Then I changed a few things. I sautéed the veggies in 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of canola oil until almost tender. I omitted the fresh tomatoes and used 2 cans of the canned tomatoes. I omitted the water and used a 32 oz box of chicken broth. (Veggie broth when my vegetarian nephew comes to visit). I also increased the barley to 3/4 cup. After adding the barley I reduced the heat to low, covered the pan and let the soup simmer for 45 – 60 minutes. I wasn’t ready to serve right when it was done so I turned the heat off and let it sit, covered, for an hour or so and the barley absorbed more of the broth and the soup was thick like a stew. My family loved it that way. I will be making this a lot.

Honey Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
I didn't like this corn bread at all. It took twice as long to bake as stated in the recipe. In fact it never did get done. It fell apart trying to get it out of the pan. I won't be making this recipe again.

Ultimate Maple Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
I could not have been more disappointed. Maple Syrup and Maple Sugar are very expensive and my cookies had NO maple flavor at all! I had 8 friends and family do a what flavor is this taste test, not one of them guessed maple. The only reason I gave this recipe a 2 rating is because they were really easy to make and everyone liked the soft consistancy of the cookie . I'll try the recipe again but with some good maple extract.
