Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup
2nd time making this. Only changes...I roasted peppers AND tomatoes, cooled, pulled skins off, and seeded peppers. Kept peeled tomatoes whole.Threw all into pot, as is, no need to chop, as they're going to be pureed anyway. Cooked down as written. Added 2 of the 6 Cups Of broth, pureed with immersion blender. Added rest of broth, (chix, veg, turkey, any will be awesome...I used half chix, half veg) then proceeded as written. Added about 12 oz half and half at end for depth, but we love bisque like soups, you may not! Thanks for an awesome Recipe! My family and paddle team thank you!

Peanut Butter Vegetable Chicken Soup
We REALLY liked this soup! My bf said it eats more like a STEW! HEARTY MEAL. I left out zucchini, but added cauliflower and mushrooms. I sauteed the onion, green pepper, celery, garlic, and 4 sliced mushrooms in 2Tbsp butter. When serving, I added a few dashes each of curry powder and ginger powder to bottom of each bowl. Man, did those additions enhance an already GREAT recipe. Thanks, Annie!

INCREDIBLE Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies
THESE COOKIES ARE DANGEROUS!! I got the 'tidbits' on sale feom Prepared Pantry website last Friday, and made these twice already! One 12 oz bag makes 4+ batches. The 2nd time around, I rolled by hand like thumbpeints and flattened slightly with my fingers. These turned out the best based on cooking time given. I even left the second sheet in for 10 extra minutes (for sidetracked outside talking to neighbors) and they just would not burn! AWESOME! LOVED BY ALL. I may try adding a tap of lemon juice next time for real cheesecake flavor! Oh, U also sprayed parchment and tips of cookies with Parkway and this helped to brown SLIGHTLY! A real hit at my home!
