Black-Eyed Pea Gumbo
Very good. I used Jamine rice and topped it with a dollop of sour cream and shredded pepper jack/with red/green jalapenoes cheese. Serve with cornbread for a hearty Sunday football fare.

Sweet Potato Souffle
fantastic! I did alter a bit. 2 eggs cause I do not know how to do 21/3 eggs and I omitted coconut/nuts from topping as my family does not care for these. I added a bit of cinnamon to sweet pot mix and also added large marshmallow toppers bout 15 min toward end of cooking time

Chicken Pot Pie IX
My husband is a chicken pot pie conniseur and he gives this one a resounding 10. As usual, I did make a few revisions. I used organic carrots, celery, chicken broth, and chicken. I used Marie Callander's deep dish frozen pie crusts. Brushed egg wash on pie crusts and there was absolutely no sogginess. Also, we do not like frozen peas and only use Le Seur peas. I subbed frozen for that brand with 50% less sodium. I added the canned peas last 5 minutes of boiling. Recipe is easy to fix too. Also, I used organic range free chicken and had the butcher cut it into bite sizes chunks. A bit of a timesaver. Will definitely store this one as a keeper!
