Barley, Lentil and Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
This soup was just delicious! Simple, hearty, and flavorful. I followed another reviewer's recommendation and reduced the barley and lentils to 1/2 cup each, which I thought gave it the perfect consistency. I was out of porcinis, so just substituted mushroom broth. Will definitely make this again!

Beer Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
Totally delicious and not too sweet! What kind of beer you use makes a difference here (guiness is prob the best choice) - I used a belgian-style white beer because it was what i had on hand, and it ended up with a lingering alcohol taste (not in a good way). So instead of fighting it, I went with it! Just before icing, I brushed on about 1/4c of SoCo and a bit of homemade apricot liqueur. It was DELICIOUS! I'm sure any liquer would work... Grand Marnier, perhaps? Substituted a Cream cheese icing also - Cream together 1 pkg Neufchatel or Cream Cheese & 1/2 stick butter, then mix in 1 to 1.5 cups confectioner's sugar (depending on your sweet tooth) and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. This was a big birthday hit :-)
