Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup
This was fantastic. I considered tweaking it, but decided to make it as listed above. It turned out GREAT! Such a yummy recipe. I read at least 100 of the 800+ reviews.I think I only came across two reviews that gave it less than 5 stars. One complained that the cream ruined it. Um... The title indicates that it is CREAMY Tomato Basil Soup. Yes, it is a very rich and creamy style. YUM! I typically make my Tomato Basil Soup non-dairy, but decided to try this for a change. It was scrumptious. I did taste it pre-cream and it was super yummy at that stage too. I would use it in either form very happily. The 2nd bad review gave it 2 stars because they weren't told to be careful when they puree -let the hot cool enough to not explode, etc.. I am very sorry they got burned, but even they said the recipe was all the 5 stars and more and that the only reason for the low rating was because of their lack of knowing how to handle hot foods for puree. Not fair. SO.. ALL that to say... SUPERB recipe as is. It is one I will keep and remake. It will be fun to play with it also. I would love to experiment with some Italian sausage and cheese accents, but that is just because I like to experiment. The recipe as is works great. Kudos to the chef of this recipe! ps. I made a monster batch using 20+ tomatoes for freezer portions. Even super sizing the recipe worked well.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
These were delicious and I made them without any changes to the above recipe. I was looking for a new twist on an ol' standby and really enjoyed this. I liked that it was not an overwhelming pumpkin flavor. It was mild and balanced nicely with the other flavors. It was a soft batch type of cookies that disappeared quickly at my church function and at home!

Juicy Thanksgiving Turkey
This was a screaming success. I am a rookie turkey baker and this was easy and fabulous. I was cooking for pros and they raved. Thanks for the recipe!
