Cream of Cauliflower Soup I
Just finished enjoying it! I made a few minor changes. I omitted the tarragon and cut the thyme in half - only because I have a very potent jar. I also substituted an additional cup of chicken broth for the white wine because I didn't have any. As far as the milk/cream addition, I added some cream cheese instead, as another reviewer mentioned. It came out fabulous with some crusty home made bread. Almost forgot, I also added a stalk of chopped celery. Didn't even need the cheese! I'm looking forward to the leftovers for lunch tomorrow... Thank you for a delicious recipe!

Lamb Osso Buco Slow-Cooked
Richard, if you give this recipe another chance, with a little tweaking, I think you might change your mind. Nancy, I gave this 5 stars because I don't usually like lamb, but I really liked this recipe. I only make lamb occasionally because my husband likes it so much. I did make a couple of very minor changes as follows... 1. I diced my own fresh tomatoes - 1 plum, 1 heirloom, and 1 medium size round, instead of using canned. 2. I substituted a full-bodied red wine instead of white. 3. I used a few sprinkles of dried thyme instead of fresh. 4. I added 1 Tbls. of fresh chopped garlic and 1 small fresh peeled finely diced beet. The only change I made in the directions was that I cooked it on high in my slow cooker for 4 hours (I was short on time). I served it over parmesan cous cous, and it was absolutely delicious! I'm saving this to my recipe box. Thanks Nancy!

Best Bread Machine Bread
I've used this recipe many times and it always turns out good. However, the last couple of times I made it I used semolina flour to make semolina bread. I didn't make any changes to the recipe, other than using semolina flour instead of all purpose flour, and it turned out perfect! The first time I did it, I thought it might be a fluke, but after today, I know this is the perfect recipe for semolina bread too! I set my machine on the basic setting with a medium crust for a 1.5 lb. loaf. I don't know why one reviewer said to not use Canola oil. I use it all the time without any problem. I use a Cooks bread machine, and I get semolina flour at an Amish market in Columbus, New Jersey. Thanks for a great, easy recipe that ALWAYS yields a perfect loaf. I'm going to try rye flour next!
