Cream of Sweet Potato Soup
What did I think of this? I think that it's awesome! Since becoming a widower, as much as I used to enjoy cooking up nice dinners for the two of us, cooking for one most nights became almost a bit of a necessity rather that a pleasure. So I just look for easy, relatively quick and at least somewhat healthy things to whip up- and this fits the bill to a T. As one person suggested, I just cook up the sweet potatoes in the chicken both- much easier and still as tasty, and then follow the recipe from there. I've also started to add a good-sized shallot, diced up and simmered it for the last couple of minutes before blending it all together in the pot. Subbed dried red pepper flakes for the cayenne- personal preference only- and it all turns out wonderfully. Quick, easy, tasty. What else is there? Thanks, Zoe!

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce
So ask me if I'm surprised that 42,000+ have saved this recipe. Not! I frequently have made something close to this, using a bit of thyme instead of the mint, a little white wine, as another reviewer (probably lots) mentioned, and sauteing some mushrooms in the pan before added the wine and cream. Now have tried it just as written here. And have added it to my short list of quick and easy chicken dinners that I have to fall back on when the need arises. Definitely a keeper!

Foolproof Rib Roast
So. I'm the type of fellow that can take the easiest recipe going- and find a way, in spite of everyone saying that it can't POSSIBLY go wrong- and find that one way to to make it do exactly that. Guaranteed. Except, as it turned out, with this one. 'Nuff said.
