About this Cook
I have worked in the hospitality industry for the last 20 years with the last 10 years in catering. I have been told I should have gone to culinary school as I have a flare for cooking. It's my favorite hobby.

Baked Potato Soup V
Thank you for the base of the soup. Made this gluten free by using GF flour and a tablespoon of arrow root. Made the rough, added a diced yellow onion, sauteed for a few minutes and added some minced garlic. Baked the potatoes in the over for an hour prior to beginning. Lastly subbed out a cup of milk (1%) with a cup of homemade vegetable stock. I cook a lot and normally need to tweak recipes. This was a really good one and only required a few changes for me.

Strawberry Jam
Made the recipe exactly as instructed. PERFECT! Tastes a bit sweet testing with a spoon. But it is AWESOME on toast and I love not adding extra pectin!

Cranberry Sauce
I just made this...2 batches actually. Having read the reviews after I made and tasted the first batch (followed exactly as written), it was a tad too sweet for me. The second batch, I made, I only decreased the sugar to 3/4 cup, some might want to go to 1/2 cup of sugar. The second batch was perfect for my tastes. I did cook the second batch for 13 minutes. All in all...EXCELLENT recipe. Simple, flavorful and many thanks for sharing!!!
