Leek and Onion Vegetable Dip
I took this to a New Year's Eve Party and it was a huge hit. I've tried many veggie dips and have liked them (like Barefoot Contessa's is very good or Beau Monde, etc) but this one is just the right combination, I think. I used KNORR mixes for both the Onion and the Leek soups and surprisingly found it not to be overly salty...AND it's something you can keep the ingredients on hand for AND throw together easily...AND it's liked with veggies AND chips. One of my friends, grabbed the dip off the buffet and brought it to the table where we were eating to keep everyone from having to get up to get more. That should tell you something right there. As far as prep...I increased the dill to probably 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons and just a FYI you might not think about (I didn't)...this dip does have to sit for a bit (i.e. chill) not just for flavor but because you need the crunchy components of the soup to soften. I made it at 3p and we ate it at 7p and it was fine. EDIT: As much as I like this dip, I did find that finding the leek soup mix became a bit of a challenge.

Absolutely Ultimate Potato Soup
The soup was delicious! But it was brownish, I guess I had visions of cream colored soup. But that might have been my fault. I browned the bacon, deglazed the pan with a very small amount of (white) port wine. When I pureed 1/2 of the soup and added it back in the soup was not cream colored it kinda looked more like a light gravy. Hmmm. But still delicious. I'm thinking that if I want a cream colored soup :-), I should use smoked ham for the smokey flavor and cook the bacon separetly from the soup and sprinkle crumbled bacon on top? But however you make it its GOOD!

Crisp Anise Seed Butter Cookies
My hubby likes Jingles cookies at Christmas time, I thought I'd like to find a recipe that would not have all the partially hydrogenated stuff in it. He likes these. I knew I wasn't very good at rolling stuff out. So I tried rolling them into balls and then rolling them in cinnamon sugar. Came out yummy. Even if you roll them in cinnamon sugar you don't need more than the 1/4 cup you make in the recipe. I think next time, the only thing I would try is rolling them into balls and flattening them slightly. Rolling them made 54 cookies. But that isn't necessary just something I might try.
