Butternut Squash Soup
I didn't read the comments of others to first roast the squash until after I had it cubed. So I went with the original recipe, except I used butter instead of margarine. Also, I didn't have marjoram, so I substituted 1 tsp coriander, 1 Tbsp curry powder, and 1/2 tsp nutmeg. I also used only one (8 oz.) package cream cheese instead of 2 as the recipe called for. It was very tasty! Although I think next time I will try only 4 oz. cream cheese. This recipe is simple, forgiving, and can easily be tweeked and experimented with to suite personal taste.

Hot Chocolate Mix
Looking for something to put in spaghetti sauce jars I've been saving all year for Christmas gifts and choose hot cocoa. After looking at lots of recipes and comments, I chose this one because of its simplicity and preference not to use powdered creamers (unhealthy and full of ). Unfortunately, the cocoa tastes much better with the powdered creamer. However, it can be made as is, and then add real half-and-half to the cocoa when making it. I increased the sugar to 1-1/2 cups, increased the cocoa powder to 2/3 cup, and added 2 cups powdered creamer. I also blended all the ingredients in a food processor to make more refined. Next I'm going to try a batch and add crushed up candy canes while in the food processor. Thanks for the great recipe!

Stuffed Green Peppers I
Followed the recipe except for three suggestions: (1) fill peppers halfway, add tomato soup, then continue to fill the pepper, (2) increase Worcestershire sauce, (3) use 5 peppers instead of 6. I love that everything for the filling is done in one pan and the rice cooked beautifully. I cooked the stuffed peppers in a stoneware Bundt pan - they stand nicely packed together.
