Baked Potato Soup II
Just made this soup, and served it to my family who spent hours sledding, playing and shoveling our 24" of snow today. It was a big hit, with some changes as mentioned by other reviewers. 1. I used about 5 potatoes, or 3lbs. 2. I sauteed 1 onion, 2 stalks of celery and 3 large cloves of garlic in the butter until onions were transluscent, celery soft and garlic fragrant. Then I added four to make roux. 3. I mashed potatoes before adding to milk mixture. 4. I added cup of chicken broth to thin out. 5. I pureed soup with immersion blender. 6. I added some frozen peas after pureed soup. 7. I added Bacos (imitation bacon crumbs) to each bowl when serving. I think I would not puree as much, and leave some chunks of potato. I will definitely make again. Very good with the changes.

Gazpacho II
I made this soup for a bbq today, and everyone really liked it. I made one mistake: I added the ice cube in each person's bowl too early, and by the time everyone sat down, it melted and there was a puddle of water in the center of the bowl. Otherwise, the flavor was excellent. One question: Why wasn't the color a brighter red. It was dark redish brown. Anyone know how I can get it a nice bright red??? Thanks.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad
I did NOT have good luck with this recipe. I've made it twice now, and the same thing happened. The spinach got very soggy, even though I added the dressing at the last minute. I think it might be a problem I have in drying the spinach leaves. I bought fresh bunches of spinach, and washed them thoroughly and dried them in a salad spinner. I tried to dry the leaves, but they never got really dry, rather they became wilted. I added the sliced strawberries, candied sliced almonds, minced red onion, and poppy seeds. Then I added the dressing. I must be doing something wrong, because I seem to be the only person with this problem. If I can't figure out what I did wrong, I will not make this salad again. What a shame, sounds like everyone else has not had the same experience. I'd love to hear from anyone on this. Thanks.
