Ham and Bean Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2014
Incredibly bland as written - but that's exactly what my mom used to make! I wanted something with some flavor, so I followed some adjustments from others and LOVED them. 4 carrots, 4 celery stalks, 3 cloves garlic (instead of powder), 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1 1/2 tsp paprika, scant 1/8 tsp cayenne red pepper, 2 tbsp brown sugar. Used just water, no chicken stock. AMAZING.

Delicious and easy! Made for a small winter party, and this was completely gone before anyone touched the soda!

Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
With a little tweaking, this made the moistest muffins I've ever had! When I first followed the recipe, I found the pumpkin flavor too muted, so I doubled the pumpkin and spices, and stuck with one box of cake mix. As another reviewer noted, you have to even out the thick batter in the muffin pan - it bakes up exactly how it starts in the pan, jagged edges and all. The muffins are great plain, but I also added a rum icing to some of them. Mix 1/4 c. spiced rum with 1/2 c. powdered sugar, poke holes in the warm muffins and spoon the icing over top, letting it soak in. Makes a great holiday treat!

Carla's Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
Excellent companion to my fruit plate at brunch! I used 8 oz cream cheese instead of the recommended 3 oz and it turned out very rich. The adults all loved it, but the kids proclaimed it "too sweet" and wouldn't touch it. Next time I will use only 3 oz for a lighter flavor. Tastes fantastic on grapes, strawberries, cantelope, and honeydew.
