Pantry Puttanesca
A wonderful use of pantry staples. Followed as written, other than increasing the hot pepper flakes to half a teaspoon. Topped with Parmigiano-Reggiano and served with a tomato bocconcini salad. Great. Best of all, we have leftovers for tomorrow.

Banana Muffins II
Perfect for what it is - a nice simple banana muffin recipe. I doubled the recipe with good results (added some pecan pieces and vanilla). Moist and delicious. Look no further.

Cream of Mushroom Soup I
I used the ingredients shown, but changed the methods. To concentrate flavours, I sauteed the onion and sliced mushrooms in a shallow pan with the butter until they were lightly browned (I added one clove minced garlic towards the end). I transferred the mixture to a soup pot then added the flour and cooked for a couple of minutes. Whisked in the broth, added thyme, salt and pepper, then brought to a boil. Added the half and half, then reheated slowly before adding the sherry. Before serving, I used a stick blender to roughly chop the mushrooms. I then added some chopped Italian parsley for colour and a bit of texture. If the soup is too thick, a splash of chicken stock would be useful. It is good to offer salt and a pepper grinder at the table in case anyone wants to correct the seasoning to their taste. Delicious.
