Heavenly Shortbread
I am giving this a 5 star rating because it is a simple, tasty recipe. I halved the recipe and rolled out the dough, cut out 2 dozen cookies and baked on parchment paper. These are great with a cup of tea. My husband said to make them again and add some chopped pecans; his thinking is they will resemble a famous pecan cookie by a well known company. I also think this would be good baked on a pizza pan and used as the "crust" for fruit pizza. Thanks for submitting this recipe! It's a keeper.

Butternut Squash Soup
I've made this soup twice now. The first time, exactly as specified. It was good, but I felt like there could've been another layer of flavor added. Tonight, I tweaked it a little and WOW! What a difference. My husband loved it so much, there wasn't any left over to freeze this time. First of all, let me say that I halved the recipe as there are only two of us - it still comes out beautifully. Here's what I did: After sauteeing the onions in (real) butter, deglaze the pot with 1/2c. white wine. I substituted Herbs de Provenc for the marjoram and I roasted the squash. The biggest difference is that I added about 2Tbl honey to the soup after it was blended. It adds a subtle sweetness that compliments the soup without making it sweet, and I grated fresh nutmeg over the top of the bowls before serving. What a lovely soup on a cold, rainy fall day. I will definately make this again.

Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Perfection
This was an excellent stuffed chicken recipe. The only changes I made were to marinade the chicken in Greek salad dressing (I thought with feta cheese, Greek dressing would be a nice compliment) and drizzle melted butter over the crumbs before baking, this way it gets crispy and stays moist. Thanks for sharing such a yummy dish!
