Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars
I'm sure this recipe is great, but I made some modifications and mine didn't turn out well so here's what NOT to do. I doubled the recipe and like other reviewers I subbed applesauce for half the butter. In the end the cookie crust mixture was not crumbly but more like a paste. I was concerned it wouldn't cook completely but it did. However, the flavor was bland. I even added a little extra sugar but it was still bland. The raspberry filling was very tasty. I added the zest of several lemons to the jam and it was delicious. So I guess the moral of the story is to make two batches instead of trying to double when making substitutions. I will try it again because it got so many great reviews.

Grandma's Sour Cream Pound Cake
I have made this recipe several times and it always turns out great and gets rave reviews. This time my 14yr old niece helped and was a little rough with the "folding" in of the dry ingredients but the cake turned out perfectly. I added 1TBS of vanilla. It was so moist we ate it straight off the plate without whipped cream! Next time I'll try adding some orange or lemon extract for a change.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup
My family loved this soup! I am vegetarian so I used Not-Chicken CHicken stock. I added some celery and doubled the carrots. To thicken it I used about a teaspoon of corn starch and a tablespoon of flour, mixed with the half and half. This was for HALF the recipe. I wish I'd made it all! My husband is a devout carnivore and added bacon to his, but tried mine and said it was great even without! I will definitely be making this each fall/winter!
