Pumpkin Black Bean Soup
So glad I tried this! It was unique and delicious. Here are my changes: first, I read the recipe wrong and only bought one can of beans. I just added them undrained and did not purée any. I imagine this made my soup less thick than what it was meant to be, but I liked it. Three cans sounds like overkill to me anyway. I'd think all you'd be able to taste was beans! Anyway my result was a thick broth. The "cover" picture shown with this recipe looks like the consistency mine had. I also did not add any salt since the canned broth, beans, and tomatoes and butter and ham are all pretty salty to begin with. I used apple cider vinegar and only two tablespoons. I thought it was lacking in depth flavor-wise so I also added two pinches of nutmeg and about half a teaspoon of ground coriander. I garnished with fresh cilantro which really brightened up the final product. Very good soup! I'm betting it'll taste even better tomorrow. :)

Coconut Macaroons III
Loved! Followed recipe exactly. These taste just like the inside of a Mounds or Almond Joy candy bar. Perfect for dipping in chocolate fondue or fountain, which is what we used them for. It was everyone's favorite dipper!

Sour Cream Pound Cake
I doubled the recipe, added a pinch of salt & 2 tsp of vanilla, and baked in a Bundt pan. It was a perfect pound cake, moist and buttery. Everyone loved it!
