Curried Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
This soup rivals any soup in a high end restaurant. I followed the recipe exactly except I did not add the half and half. It was so rich and creamy without the added fat of the cream. I did add about an axtra cup of chicken broth to thin the soup. My husband stated that I could have thinned it a little more. This is definitely going to be made again. Wonder how well it would freeze?

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
My family hates spinach! Not now, I used baby spinach and omitted the sesame seeds as I did not have any on hand. My family now requests this salad. I have been making this for several years and it is always on the Thanksgiving buffet.I also have used toasted pecans in place of the almonds. The dressing is what really makes this salad pop.

Mom's Island Treasures

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
What a great version of chocaolate chip cookies. My husband usually does not like nuts in cookies. He thought these cookies were very good. The mix of coconut, chocolate chips and pecans were wonderful just the right amount.

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
Another great recipe from this site. My husband and I loved the dressing which I served on the side. I used shreds of parmesean cheese as I do not care for Swiss. This is as good as Jamies Spinach Strawberry Salad. Will try a spring mix blend of lettuces next time.

Tortellini Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
I have made this soup twice. The first time I followed the recipe exactly.When I made it Halloween night I added another pound of hot Italian sausage and used two cans of diced tomatoes with chili peppers, used red and green peppers and added summer squash to the mix. Instead of tortellini, I used spinach ricotta ravioli.I also added the rind off of parmesean cheese chunk as I had seen that on the Food Network. You remove the rind when the soup is done. This an enormous amount of delicious soup.Parents of my trick or treaters were asking what the aroma was and even asked to try it. I ended up having to print off several copies. My husband loves this soup. I served it with an spinsch garlic artisan bread from When Pigs Fly Bakery the first time and had leftover cheddar garlic biscuits the second time. This is a keeper for sure.

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
I used a spicy bean dip instead of the refried beans and taco mix. I also added gucamole on top of the sourcream/cream cheese mix. I also added colored peppers to the chopped tomatoes. Took this to Thanksgiving and it was a big hit with the family.
