Italian Wedding Soup I
I applied a number of adjustments recommended: reduced the amount of pasta & cooked it separately, used frozen spinach, added celery. Rather than being unkosher and mixing beef and chicken, I used vegetable broth and added the extra beef broth to provide a fuller flavor and served with a sprinkle of shredded parm. These being tough economic times, I doubled the recipe and got about 12 servings in all. This is definitely a filling, one-pot meal but if you can, serve it with a nice crusty bread.

Carrot Cake III
I made all the alterations to the recipe suggested by gneebeanie (Dec. 8, 2006). Draining the unsweetened, crushed pineapple, I soaked 1 cup of raisins in the juice then drained them before adding. I also reduced the nuts to 1/2 cup, using walnuts. The cake is so flavorful, the next time around, I'm going to replace the 1 cup of granulated sugar with 1 cup of Splenda to help reduce calories. With all the alterations, in the end, it's an entirely different recipe but a gourmet treat.

Corned Beef and Cabbage II
I was dismayed to learn the fruit I bought for this recipe was consumed by a household member as a lunch, so had to do without! Even without the citrus, the corned beef was very good. I cut up Yukon Gold potatoes and added them to the bag to roast in the oven and be flavored by the meat. Yum. Instead of using 1/4 c. water to steam the cabbage, I used 1/4 c. vegetable broth to add flavor since I was apple-less!
