Cucumber Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
I halved the recipe, so I don't know if that threw off the ratios, or what, but I did not care for this at all - and I have had cucumber soup before and enjoy it. I feel like the vinegar is what ruined it for me, although I usually like red wine vinegar as well.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
Delicious!!! Super yummy. :) I never really follow recipes to a tee, and most of the time just eyeball the measurements. Worked great here. End result: fingerling potatoes and butternut squash coated in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, Rosemary, thyme. I cook for one, so I'll be looking forward to this for dinner for the next few days!!

Curried Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
My soup turned out a little thicker than I'd like, but super creamy and SO yummy. The pear gives it that weird pear-y, granule-y texture which is a little weird for a creamy soup. But, as I said, it's so delicious, and a hearty, but lighter meal for a cold night. Takes a long time to make! Also, the squash did take longer to roast soft enough to scoop.

Winter Fruit Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
Delicious! I made it just as it's written, and it was great! I also like salads with other types of cheeses and nuts, but the swiss and cashews make fantastic flavor combinations in this salad and in your mouth! Next time I will decrease the amount of sugar I use - it was a little too sweet for me, but still soooo delicious. Yumm!!!

Elegant Pork Loin Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
I LOVED!! this pork recipe. I am always nervous when trying new recipes, but this was sensational. The sweetness was just right for me. I did alter the recipe, and cooked mine in a crock pot as some suggested. I still mixed the mustard/brown sugar as directed, and then mixed the rest of the ingredients and poured in around the pork loin. I cooked it for about 4-5 hours on low, and it was sooo perfect - juicy and tender! I wasn't totally crazy about the bits of dried fruit - they gave great flavor, but for fruit to eat with the pork, I think I might try apples next time. DELICIOUS! Thanks for sharing!

Feta Cheese Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
These were super yummy! We loved the salt/feta ratio of the original recipe. We did use half and half instead of heavy cream, and increased the volume of that by 50% of the original recipe. Mmmm! Can't wait to eat the leftovers for lunch this week!
