Cream of Mushroom Soup I
Really yummy! I altered the recipe a little because I was actually looking for a homemade cream of mushroom gravy for smothered pork chops. I sautéed the 1/2 onion and 16 ounces of mushrooms with a little EVOO, salt, thyme and pepper. I puréed the mixture in the food processor for no more than 5 seconds to keep the mushrooms slightly chunky. I put the mixture back in the pan with the butter and dusted it with the flour plus a little extra and whisked it together. I added about a cup of whipping cream and about a half a cup of chicken broth until I got the desired consistency. I didn't have the sherry, but that would have been a nice addition. I will use this recipe again, adding more mushrooms and I can just keep adding the liquid at the end to make a nice soup.

Super Squash
Great flavor!! I made a huge pan of this for Thanksgiving and I think every member of the family complimented me on the dish. My husband and I could not stop eating it and he requested more less than a week later. I have a pan in the oven right now but I made it with slightly boiled potatoes this time. I'm positive it will taste as good as it smells.

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce
Better than anything you can find at the store. I make it all the time for my family. Goes great with a pork roast in the crock pot for some bbq pork sandwiches.
