Potato Leek Soup I
This soup was fantastic. I took other reviewers' suggestions and made the following changes: I only used 4 lbs. potatoes and boiled them in about 8 cups stock with 2 carrots and 1 stalk of celery, and I used a hand mixer to blend the potatoes, carrots, and celery in the soup pot instead of the food processor. I sauteed 4 leeks in 1/4 c. butter and a couple tablespoons of olive oil, and added 3-4 cloves garlic and one onion; I also increased the wine to 1 cup. I garnished this with some grated cheddar; my boyfriend said he would have loved some sausage or bacon crumbles as well. It was so delicious!

Italian Vegetable Soup
I am OBSESSED with this soup. I make it at least once every other week, and we always have some individual servings in the freezer for lunches. The only changes I make are: I use a potato (or 2, depending on size) instead of the pasta; I eliminate the meat to make it vegetarian; I use vegetable bouillon instead of the beef granules; I use fresh green beans and tomatoes when possible; and I triple (at least) the amount of water that's called for. This soup is amazing, though--hearty, nutritious, and delicious! It's fantastic served with the Buttery Corn Bread (recipe from this site).

Vegetable Quesadillas
Seriously delicious. I did make a few changes, based on personal preferences: I didn't add the carrot; I added a (very large) clove of garlic as well as a bit of cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper; and I added extra cheese. My boyfriend requires meat in his meals, so we added some shredded chicken to his, which turned out quite well. I will definitely be making this again.
