Vegetable Chowder
Really loved it! Served the cheese on the side for those who wanted it, as some family members don't care for cheese cooked in this manner. Cooked mushrooms on the side, and added them at the end of cooking. Varied the veggies a little in accordance with what I had on hand, but I think that any veggies would be good. I added a little dried thyme, but think that spices could be as desired.

Curried Chicken and Rice Salad
We enjoyed this very much in the run-up to Christmas. I wanted to make gravy and bought a rotisserie chicken, I chopped the meat from the bones & made broth from the bones. Then I chopped the chicken & made this salad. It was delicious - just the amount of spice my husband will accept. Next time I will double the ingredients except the rice to have a richer salad. I served it lukewarm and chilled - both good. Forgot the pine nuts - oops!

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup
I made this recipe a week ago - we all loved it. I was out of butter, so used olive oil instead. Also, I had Plevrotus mushrooms (otherwise known as oyster mushrooms I believe) which I chopped in the food processor. Next time I would chop them a little finer, as larger pieces did not cook through - they actually reminded me of oysters, which was not the texture I was expecting in the soup. I cooked this early in the day, and left to rest for a couple of hours which allowed the flavors to blend. I served sauteed sausages on the side - added the leftovers to the soup leftovers. We enjoyed it for 3 days.
