Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
Made this soup for Halloween. :) We had both acorn & butternut squash so I used combo and made double batch. Children seemed put off by the taste of the sherry -- maybe they would have liked it better if I'd remembered to offer sour cream to top it off. But the 3 adults enjoyed it. I am happy to read another reviewer say that the spices were even more satisfying after freezing, as I will freeze some of this soup!

Yummy Bok Choy Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
We also receive a good deal of bok choy or similar greens (tat soi this week) and have found limited favor from the kiddos in stir frying them with our other veggies. So this recipe was a great way to ENJOY every last bite of the strong-flavored green! We were serving to father who is diabetic, so used Splenda in place of sugar, and I would use less sweetener or sugar in the future, as we added naturally sweet cranberries and drained can of mandarin oranges. Skipped the almonds this time, due to son's nut allergy, but we would have liked having those in the salad, too! We had so much dressing left at the bottom of salad bowl, that we poured it into a jar to save for the next time we make it! Oh, and I just dressed a tiny sample of the greens for my youngest, who was hungry sooner than dinner was ready, and the bok choy/tat soi didn't wilt enough to make her dish of salad as palatable as the salad tossed with the dressing, I think.

Javi's Really Real Mexican Ceviche

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
Perhaps really fresh seafood necessary? I had such high hopes & was so excited to make it for our family's cinco de mayo supper. But we were disappointed! Followed recipe exactly -- except made the recipe calculated down for only "3" (that is, using 1/4 of all ingredients). In our family of 6, only one enjoyed it. The rest of us found the shrimp too tough. Just bought my shrimp today, so it was as fresh as I can get at my grocery store, but husband says we might give it a go again when we source some fresh-caught shrimp. Also, we've enjoyed ceviche at restaurants in the past, but usually with fish only vs shrimp & scallops. Might try the fish suggestions that other cooks listed in their reviews if we revisit this recipe.

Taco Soup VIII

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
This was a hit with husband & children! We didn't have kidney beans, so I substitute one can each of garbanzos and black beans. Hubby suggested we combine this recipe with our stand-by vegetarian chili, because the consistency of this taco soup was more satisfying to him than our runny veggie chili. So I'm putting the crock pot to use again tonight with a second batch -- this time trying to add the chunks of zucchini that we put in our chili & see whether we like the tastes together!
