Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
Made this soup without any additional changes knowing that I could save this if necessary by making changes after it was done. It did come out a bit thin in consistency for a ham and potato soup for my liking and did taste a bit bland though I was aware that the author suggested to add extra ingredients to improve it to our liking. Did add ingredients to thicken the soup by mashing some of the potatoes till the consistency was just right (you may add 1/4 cup 10%cream in place of 1/4 cup of the milk when making the recipe.) I topped off by adding savoury, and fresh thyme. It is important to add the pepper as freshly ground from a pepper mill. As well, a good recipe done as is without any changes – compliments to Ellie.

Kingman's Vegan Zucchini Bread
I am not a vegan and coming from India I love vegetarian and bake my own bread for 3 years now. Was very excited to try this at first but on reading the ingredients was shocked by the 2 cups sugar, never mind the uswt. apple sauce! I thought it might be too sweet as in my baking I use no more than 2 TBSP sugar for the proofing of yeast. I decided to try this hoping that the ingredients would balance out and offset a bit the sugar. Very disappointed that it turned out much too sweet and mushy – even for a cake! Sorry but this was a waste of ingredients, time and electricity. Diabetics and overweight Vegans beware! To be noted with a bit of humor that there is a video posted on top of the reviews of this recipe "5 minute blood sugar killer!".

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I
The beef was dry and fibrous even though it was cooked on low for 10 hours and was falling apart nicely! No body ate the beef but the sauce and veggies were gone even though the potatoes and veggies were over cooked, discolored and mushy!
