Maple and Ginger Baked Beans
I needed a baked bean recipe that did not call for ketchup or "pork and beans" due to an allergy. This was perfect! (although the picture that shows this recipe being white did not look appealing to me and I nearly didn't try it. How is that white when there is molasses in this recipe?) I didn't have time to soak beans over night (for dinner tonight), so I used the canned beans I had. Roma, Navy, white Kindey beans and a Mixed variety used for salads. Rinsed them, tossed them in with the listed ingredients and a big smoked pork hock and they were fabulous! Mine also had lots of extra liquid at the end, but a quick fix to that is using your stick blender to puree some of the beans up which will turn the liquid into a nice texture. (DO NOT DO THE ENTIRE POT! JUST MAYBE 1/2 CUP TO 1 CUP!). Thank you for this great option. :)

Unbelievable Fish Batter
this was certainly a 5* in our house. I did alter the baking soda amount as suggested to 2 tbsp baking powder and wrote to All Recipes asking them to make the change on the recipe before others ruin their dinner using the 1/4 cup! I did add 1 tsp of onion powder though which I feel is needed for flavour. Otherwise this would be a pretty bland batter. I also had to thin with a little more water. I only had 2 Haddock Fillets so cut the recipe in half (1 tbsp baking powder) and I had enough for both pieces plus 4 large mushrooms. Thank you so much for sharing this great recipe!

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup
I used the entire ham bone and simmered everything on the stove. I'm not sure the broth would have had an intense enough flavour for me with just the ham pieces, but that is a personal preference, and I also used diced tomatoes. That doesn't change the flavour, it just adds a different texture. Another personal preference is that I prefer my soups to have a little body. I don't like a liquid broth. So I added 1/2 cup of instant potato flakes at the end and simmered for another 30 minutes to give it that little "extra" stick to your ribs texture. :) Thank you for sharing.
