Quick Hoppin' John Soup
This soup is fantastic! Very easy to prepare. I had a difficult time finding the black-eyed peas in a can. I looked at three stores and was about to buy a bag of dried black-eyed peas (finally the last store at least had them that way) when I remembered a reviewer said they bought them frozen. The store did have them frozen (thank you Joe G. because I would not have even thought to look in the frozen foods). I prepared them the way the bag said, drained them, and then added them to my soup. I also took the advice of viewers and added onion and celery to the sausage while it was cooking, about ½ cup each. My sausage was just regular sausage so I just added sage to it while it cooked. I used Uncle Ben’s long grain and wild rice mix and did not think the end result needed any added salt. My whole family liked this soup. We had never had black-eyed peas before, but we all liked them. I think this soup would also be great with spinach or kale dropped in the last few minutes of cooking and will probably try it that way the next time I make it – and there will definitely be a next time.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies
These are good cookies. I really wanted mine to turn out with the crinkle look. I did not have margarine so I used butter. I refrigerated the dough for 1 hour. I followed the directions and slightly flattened the dough balls and they turned out good, but not crinkly. But the second pan of cookies I forgot to flatten the dough and they turned out beautiful. Note my photo – the cookie on the left was flattened slightly before baking and the cookie on the right was baked as a ball. That is the only difference. I prefer the crinkle look. I will definitely make these again.

Beer Sausage
This dish was okay. My husband is a cabbage fan and just said this was okay – not wonderful. He didn’t really like the Italian seasoning. My son loved the kielbasa and potatoes. Kielbasa always tastes good cooked in beer, and the vegetables were good cooked in the beer too. But I think the onion would be better in large chunks instead of chopped. I doubled the carrots, onion and red potatoes and thought it didn’t look like enough beer in the pot, so I added another bottle. But in the end, I think one bottle would have been fine because even the cabbage (only half covered in the beer) cooked up great with the lid on the pot. I did not layer the ingredients; I just mixed everything together except for the cabbage which I was trying to keep in the quartered chunks.
