Salmon With Scalloped Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
I served this to my Dutch husband and stepson, and his new Croatian girlfriend, and everyone liked it quite well, even my husband and me, who don't really care for sweet potatoes! I followed the guidance of other readers and reduced the orange juice to 1/2 cup and added 1/4 cup of water to that. I also reduced the orange marmalade to 1 Tblsp to the sauce and 1 on the salmon. I added a chopped clove of garlic and used powdered ginger instead of fresh, as I was all out of fresh. I left the salmon steak in one piece, so it took an extra five minutes to get it cooked all the way through. We served it with a fresh Belgian endive salad (w/ apples, oranges, walnuts, and a balsamic vinaigrette dressing), which was a very good complement to the potatoes. Overall, a very good recipe that we will enjoy again!

Harvest Sweet Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
This turned out quite a bit better than I expected, as I'm not at all a fan of sweet potatoes. First, I added an extra cup of water after reading all of the baby food comments, Then, I tried to get away with mashing the potatoes in the pot rather than running it through the blender - that didn't turn out well at all. Finally, I puree'd it as suggested, and couldn't believe the difference in flavor! I added a dash of cayenne, and topped it with chopped cashews. Delicious! My husband even had seconds, and he's less enthusiastic about sweet potatoes than I am! Will definitely make this again.
