Chocolate and Almond Biscotti
These turned out delicious. I added 1/4 cup of butter after noticing many other recipes also included oil or butter and had no problem with it being crumbly or too dry to work with. Subbed butterscotch schnapps for the whiskey. After cooling I dipped the ends in melted chocolate and coated in chopped almonds. Tasted and looked great!

Pumpkin Soup
Simple hearty flavors make this pumpkin soup. I was looking for something that wasn't the typical cinnamon/nutmeg/sweet spices. This was right on target and the recipe is VERY FLEXIBLE. I added some extra garlic & red pepper flakes, left the salt out, and for the second half of the cook I added some chopped vegetables with a little more pumpkin (would have added other squash also if I had some). It turned out delicious and my husband would even eat this (he normally shies away from all veggie dishes)

Chewy Granola Bars
I was very disappointed in these, not at all what I think of as a granola bar. The Ingredients seem good but both my attempts turned the bars into mush. The first I used quick oats & WW Flour & added strawberry bits. They came out very dark and mushy,(assumed fault of the strawberries, quick oats, and overcooking) The recipe is rated well so I gave it another try this time with long cooking oats, and used dried fruit & nuts. I also added a dab of peanut butter for flavor and used less flour They still ended up crumbly but not as mushy--to my dismay the nuts and crispies still lost their crunch. :( These looked & tasted better before baking. After two failed attempts I'm moving on to look for a better cooking method.
