Cream of Asparagus and Mushroom Soup
I gave 4 stars as I had to add some flavor - a little extra sea salt, fresh ground pepper and a couple dashes of cayenne really brought out the flavors. I used leftover steamed asparagus (added later in the process) and kept aside the tips (also added later to the mushrooms). I sliced the mushrooms super thin on a mandoline, used fat free 1/2 &1/2, and bumped up the flavor of the chicken broth with a little chicken broth paste (awesome stuff). yummy recipe!!

Chef John's Sweet Potato Casserole
Absolutely the talk of our Thanksgiving dinner! Out with boring sweet potatoes and the sticky sweet marshmallow topping...this recipe is going to be a family tradition. The only thing I changed was the preparation of the potatoes: Bake those bad boys for 1.25 hours on a baking sheet at 325 degrees. Then follow the recipe exactly...perfection. I did use pecans instead of pistachios but to each his own on that.

Mom's Zucchini Bread
Amazing! base recipe was very good- hence the 5 stars...I made a few mild adjustments to the next few loaves:1C white & 1C wheat flour, 1.5t nutmeg & 1.5t cinnamon, 1/2 C oil & 1/2C applesauce, 1C white & 1C brown sugar. As a crunchy addition: 1/4C flax seed. Cook 60 minutes at the very least...ovens vary, so be aware.
