Vegan Split Pea Soup I
A couple of tips that might help folks, based upon what I see in the reviews: This is an excellent recipe -- and you don't have to be vegan to love it! Notes on prep: Split peas, like lentils, do not need to soak overnight. In fact, they do not need to soak at all. Doing so will seriously affect the texture of the soup. Carrots won't cook till soft? Years ago I learned the trick of getting a beautiful looking pea soup -- coarsely grate the carrots. They cook in a wink, and those little flecks of orange with the green peas make for a great presentation. Happy cooking, and thank you Deborah Sah for a great recipe!

Scottish Shortbread I
Excellent shortbread, very tender. Rolls nicely, but be sure you have PLENTY of flour on your board, it sticks pretty quickly. If you are using cookie cutters rather than making bars, the extra time it takes can let the flour absorb into all that buttery richness!

Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce III
I make this often -- fave bread pudding. I use day-old cinnamon bread. I wanted a non-alcoholic version, so I substitute a boiled custard sauce instead of the whiskey sauce. Makes it even richer, and not too sweet.
