Lentil Soup with Lemon
This soup was amazing. The flavor was great. I didn't have any cilantro, so I can't wait to taste it next time I make it with cilantro added! I added 2 stalks of celery to it, as well. The only thing I would suggest to do different is to cook it a little longer than the 30 minutes. The veggies were crisp tender and the lentils were still a little crunchy. But the flavor and texture was great!!!

Cherry Pie III
I gave this 4 stars only because the ingredients need to be altered, as said in other posts. I baked this last night and it was soooo yummy. However, 2 cups of cherries would not have been enough filling. I used 4 cups of fresh sweet pitted cherries, and only 1 cup of sugar with all the other filling ingredients remaining the same. The crust was delish! I thought I had a good pie crust, but this one beats it, hands down! Very flaky, even the bottom crust remained flaky with the gooey filling, which is sometimes a hard thing to pull off. Also, I was a little concerned about the crust when I first made it because it was so soft and sticky, so I added a good bit of flour to the pastry sheet I rolled it out on to prevent sticking. Came out perfect! I'll definitely make this one again!

Quick Quiche
Wow! This was great! I substituted cheddar and mozzarella for the swiss cheese and ham instead of bacon. Phenomenal!
