Brothy Shrimp and Rice Scampi

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
I give it 3 or 4 stars as is - as soon as I read it I knew what I would do different. I was looking for a broth based soup and not a cream soup and this was good! I chopped half a large onion and minced 4 cloves of garlic and sauted in a large sauce/soup pan. Added Old Bay to our taste and then added the broth once it got going. Added rice to broth, then 1/2 bag of shredded carrots, at the end added 1/4 fresh chopped parsley and 2 chopped green onions (great colors in this one) and then added the shrimp and cooked a few minutes more until they were pink ( cut them in bite size pieces - easier to eat with a soup spoon). I see I omitted the lemon juice - didn't intead to, but I just forgot it. I will make this again. Old Bay really gives it more depth of flavor. Served with hot crusty garlic bread.

Spicy Tortilla Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
This was great! I added a little more cilantro and a handful of FINELY shredded cheddar cheese - only because I had some and wanted to use it up. After reading another review, I added 1/2 of a ranch dressing seasoning packet. This helped pull it together a little (a lot of the ingredients add water even if you drain). I also found that it cut the "sour" taste tobasco sauce has for me. I think this recipe is a 5 star AS IS - but if you tweak it to your personal taste - can't go wrong!!

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
This was fabulous! I would say the best I have tasted so far. I used leftover squash that I had cubed and roasted in the oven the night before with brown sugar. I sauted onion and added a clove of minced garlic until tender, then started adding chicken stock, then the left over squash until it was all cooked through. I pureed in food processor with cream cheese, then just heated it through again right before we ate. Taking into consideration other comments on the cream cheese, definataly add the cream cheese about 3 or 4 ounces at a time, that way you can get to the richness that you prefer before you have taken it too far. I added less than half the recipe called for. Lovely!!
