Curried Apple and Leek Soup
This is an easy and fine recipe. Having said that, some folks found that it tasted like apple compote. I didn't... I thought it had a three tiered flavor, starting with apple, having leek in the middle and curry as a pleasant aftertaste. You could still taste the apples rawness with the suggested times, I'd probably cook them slightly longer next time...

Crema de Calabazines
This is one of those dishes common in every Spanish household that never makes into cookbooks. My mother serves this soup cold in summer, and it's so refreshing after a day in the beach!

Cottage Cheese Roast
I love eating meat, but I realise it's not really healthy to eat it every day. So, living alone as I do, I had ruled out meatloaf out of my menus (try do it for any less than 4 portions!). I am quite glad about this recipe. The only things that leave room for improvement in it were my own fault, as my cottage cheese wasn't creamed, and I didn't really crush the walnuts as much as I should have. Also, I used some herb infused oil but won't bother next time, as I couldn't really taste the spices. But the recipe is all in all easy and tasty. Oh, by the way, following other readers advice I used a full cup of cereal for four portions. I'm really looking forward to start tinkering with this recipe. Sun dried tomatoes? Mushrooms? Pepper? Chickpeas? Another type of nuts? Olives? Mmmmmmmm...
