Butter Pecan Rounds
I made these for my mother-in-law who doesn't like chocolate, and she loved these! Everyone did. They are very buttery and not overly sweet. I added toffee bits - about half a bag, because I love "chunks" in my cookies, and I call them "butter brickle bites." I may cut down on the sugar this time because the toffee sweetens them up even more.

Dad's Pumpkin Chiffon Pie
I have to say that this was NOT a success for me. From the numerous good reviews, I think it was my fault... the egg whites would not stiffen, and for someone with less chiffon experience, it would have helped to know that you have to whip the whites in a metal bowl and allow them to come to room temperature before they will firm up. Also, I did what one reviewer suggested and made a gingersnap crumb crust rather than just using whole cookies. It was very tasty, but turned to mush when I added the filling. Overall, good ideas - but a disappointing result!

Apricot Lentil Soup
I love this! The only two things I do differently: I don't puree it. Wish I could, but I don't have a blender! Also, I use veggie stock (I'm a vegetarian). Very good... sometimes I crave it!
