Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2013
Wonderful soup. I cooked the squash with the potatoes adding them to the sauted leeks, onions and garlic. I also added two stalks of celery. I covered the mixture with 32 oz of chicken broth, as another reviewer mentioned the thinness of the final product, brought to a boil, covered and simmered for about 20 minutes. This cuts the cooking time in half (especially if you buy the peeled and cut up squash at the grocery store). I pureed with an immersion blender. I used 1/2 cup heavy cream instead of half and half. The potatoes give it the thicker texture even though I'm sure the apples provide another level of sweetness. I make a mushroom and bacon soup by Ann Burrel using a similar process. I will definitely make again!!! Maybe next time I'll add some spicy sausage!

Chili I

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
Love this recipe. When I made it the first time last winter I made it according to the original ingredients except for the sirloin, I used shaved steak because that what was I had, that cooks down and almost melts into the chili! However, it was too hot and way too many beans. So, now I cut back the chili to 3 T mexican chili powder, 1/2 tsp of cayenne, I can of red kidney beans, 2 fresh jalapenas without ribs or seeds, and my husbands request of 2 15oz cans of hominy. I used Sam Adams Holiday Porter. We top it with sour cream and grated cheddar cheese. This chili is so rich in taste! The chocolate, the coffee, and the brown sugar balance the spices and the heat. Absolutely fantastic!!

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
I made this recipe for Christmas Eve in 2009. I did double the spices and added one half cup of apple sauce. I baked this recipe in the Williams Sonoma Nordic Ware Christmas houses pan. It makes six individual houses - a perfect serving size! I sprinkled them with powdered sugar and served with freshly whipped cream. WOW! My family loved it! Cakes were wonderfully moist and "gingery." This year I plan to double the recipe and add the Christmas train to the Christmas houses. Hopefully it will last long enough for me to take a picture!!!
