Lentil Soup with Lemon
I didn't have tomato paste, and I skipped the blender step. This soup was heavenly. It was very simple to prepare and was ready to eat in 45 minutes. I made it two servings by cutting the lentils to 1/2 cup, still in 4 cups of liquid. One serving came out to 179 calories, with 11.6 g protein and 12.6 g fiber. I am extremely impressed with this one! Thank you for posting it!

'Momma Made Em' Chicken and Sausage Gumbo
You can't "simmer" veggies in roux for 45 minutes without adding liquid. I made some common sense corrections to this recipe, and used fresh everything except for frozen okra, and we liked it that way. My spices (I never use pre-mixed): 1/2 tsp each thyme, paprika, cayenne pepper, black pepper; 1 tsp oregano; 1 Tbsp. chopped garlic; 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce. I made the roux from butter, and it was done to my liking in 20 minutes (a little darker than chocolate milk). Thanks for posting this recipe, it was a very good base to start with!

Honey Glazed Ham
Juicy and tender, great flavor. I used a 6 lb. Bluegrass jubilee ham. Five hours on low in the crock pot, basting every 30-60 minutes, was perfect. Microwave the glaze - no need to mess with a double boiler.
