Butter Chickpea Curry
Very yummy =) A really good option for when I don't have a lot in the fridge, since pretty much all the ingredients are things I have in my pantry. Not too much work either - not a lot of chopping compared to most vegetarian recipes I've made! I did adjust it a bit but nothing major, would be a great recipe as written! Changes: I started by simmering the spices in oil, so they got nice and fragrant. I also added the boiled potatoes early on (before the liquid ingredients) so they disintegrated a bit and made the sauce nice and thick! In fact I had to add a bit of water afterwards to make it saucy again, oops! But I liked the texture that way. I used a bit of minced ginger instead of powdered; I subbed crushed tomatoes for the soup; and I added a touch of lemon juice, sugar, and cayenne for kick. I agree that tomato soup wouldn't be as nice as actual tomatoes. I did find I had to add extra spices, but I think that was my fault 'cause the potatoes soaked a lot up at the beginning. Tasted fabulous!

Black Bean Vegetable Soup
Super yummy soup! After reading other reviews, I did mess with the recipe a bit. I used fresh chicken broth instead of veggie (about three cups) and boiled the soup for about half an hour to reduce the volume a bit. I used two cloves of garlic, some beef bouillon powder, and lots of cumin and cayenne pepper for extra flavour. Also, rather than using canned black beans I used about three cups of my own cooked ones, half pureed and half whole (I cook large amounts of organic dry black beans in my crock pot every few weeks, then portion them into ziploc bags and freeze them). This soup tasted fantastic served with sour cream and cilantro. Next time I would probably sub frozen corn for the canned stuff, and I'd add at least another cup of beans - I really like the texture added by the whole beans and I think it could have used more. Thanks for a wonderful recipe =) it will be a winter staple!

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies
Fave chocolate chip cookie recipe so far! I agree that 10min baking time is just right - mine ended up crispy on the edges, soft in the middle - mmm mmm sooo good! I did change the recipe a tiny bit. I swapped the white and brown sugar quantities as suggested, and I subbed marg for butter. My peanut butter was really runny/oily for some reason, so I used a tad less than 1/2 cup. I wonder if that's why some reviewers found these dry - just really dry peanut butter? Mine were super moist and good. But between the runny peanut butter and the margarine, the batter ended up very soft and sticky. They were more like drop cookies, and they spread a lot. Not complaining though since that's just the way I like them =) I've only got one criticism: I think a full cup of chocolate chips is way too much for a recipe than only uses one cup of flour! I cut back to 2/3 cup, and it was still almost too much for me, even with my strong sweet tooth. Overall, fabulous recipe. I've been searching for ages for the perfect chewy chocolate chip cookie, and I think I may have found a winner =)
