Pressure Cooker Cream of Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
I made this yeaterday for a crowd, there was none left at the end! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Sorry to say that I made a few minor changes, they are as follows: I did not use heavy cream, (coffee cream was all I had, and I didnt use quite as much as the recipe called for, maybe 2 cups?) I did not put in the green onion as there was enough with the original chopped onions in base, and I added a little cumin with the curry. I also grated in about a 2 inch knob of ginger root, and only used about 4 cloves of garlic but probably could have been braver and tried using all 8! I was a bit afraid of it being overwhelming. It pureed beautifully, and was a warm and hearty soup! Also, if you enjoy a garnish....we swirled some yogurt that had been mixed with a bit of curry on top. It added a nice swirl of colour to the orange hue of the soup. Culinary, and visual art! It was a great dish, and could be a hearty meal with some rustic bread or croutons. I keep forgetting to use my pressure cooker, and this soup worked amazingly well in it. Quick and easy.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
Tried this last week with some scarey looking bananas (always the best kind!) These turned out wonderful. I especially liked the topping, the muffin was soft and full of banana flavour and the topping was crunchy and sweet. Everyone who tasted them really enjoyed them. I re-read the recipie a few times because I was surprised that there was no liquid such as milk in the recipe, however none was needed as the banana and egg provided enough. This will be marked as one to keep!
