Black Bean and Corn Salad II
Great recipe! I love how colorful it is. Taste is great - the lime juice and cilantro are zingy & fresh and nicely balanced with the creaminess of the avocado. Agree with others about decreasing amount of olive oil. I am making this my go-to recipe for any potluck or gathering.

Rich and Creamy Roasted Eggplant Soup
I really like this recipe - made it twice in a week. Made as written except I substituted low sodium chix broth - which could explain why it seemed a little bland. I doctored to my tastes - 1st batch added red pepper flakes; 2nd batch added roasted red pepper. Goat cheese or gorgonzola gives a nice punch. Very easy to prep. As for blowing the top off the blender - don't fill it too much and hold the lid with a kitchen towel.

Corn, Sausage and Pepper Chowder
Very tasty - even better the next day. For the most part, I followed the recipe except... In step 1 - sauteed the veggies in a skillet, transferred to pot. In step 2 - browned kielbasa in same skillet, transferred to pot. Mopped up excess grease from skillet with paper towel then deglazed with chicken broth to release the fond then added to pot. I used a bag of diced potatoes which seemed to take a long time to soften. Next time I will use red potatoes the recipe calls for. I also found I needed more chicken broth. I will definitely make again. Thanks for the recipe!
