The Best Thai Coconut Soup
I followed the recipe as written, but doubled it to make a huge batch for a large group potluck. First of all, the pot was scraped clean, with many folks coming back for seconds and even thirds. Second of all, I served this to my mother-in-law (gluten free, health-nut, etc.) She had just had a version of this soup at an excellent Thai restaurant in town and said that my soup was better. Also, I can't count how many people asked for this recipe, including mother-in-law. Next time I make this for my family I will cut the curry paste a bit- my kids don't like spicy foods- but for my husband & me it was just perfect. Try it. It is excellent.

Grandma's Baking Powder Biscuits
I usually just make the biscuit recipe on the side of the baking powder can, but I bought Trader Joe's baking powder, which doesn't have a recipe on it, so I turned to allrecipes for an alternative. My whole family loved these biscuits. I subbed butter for the shortening, but followed the recipe exactly otherwise. I made them as a drop biscuit, using an ice cream scoop to drop them on the cookie sheet. They were moist and tender, with great flavor- buttery, just barely sweet. I wonder a couple of things: if those who ended up with a dry biscuit rolled & cut their dough, which would add extra flour to the mix, and if the reviewer who complained of an overwhelming baking powder taste used 4 Tablespoons instead of teaspoons of baking powder, because these were great! Great as a side with dinner, for breakfast with jam or honey or sausage gravy, and I wouldn't hesitate to use this as a shortcake for strawberries & whipped cream. Thank you for a great biscuit recipe! I have added this to my recipe box!

Sugar Free Mocha Cheesecake
I made this for our Easter family gather since I signed up to bring desserts and there are a couple diabetics in the family. Even after searching 2 grocery stores I couldn't find some of the ingredients, so I did have to make substitutions- I used standard graham crackers instead of sugar free cookies, and Truvia instead of brown sugar substitute. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. I also brought a home made blueberry-rhubarb pie and an apple crisp to the event. Guess what disappeared first? To my surprise, everyone enjoyed this cheesecake. I think I've found our go-to low sugar diabetic friendly dessert option! Thanks Jenn for sharing this recipe!
