Butternut and Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
Fantastic recipe! I did a couple of modifications which I think made it amazing! While roasting the squash, I roasted a head of garlic and added it to the blending part of the process. I also only added a dash of cinnamon, but added about a teaspoon of fresh grated nutmeg. Nutmeg with Butternut squash is just so wonderful. Also, I used palm sugar instead of brown, to lower the glycemic index & sweetness of the soup, and reduced it to a scant 1/4 cup. This is now one of my very favorite soups - period! Delicious!

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
This is a phenomenal rendition of this favorite of mine! As is typical of me, I made a few alterations, but only to suit my palate, not to modify the integrity of the soup. I prefer to flip the broth quantities (14 oz of chicken, 48 oz of beef) I also double the wine and add a touch of ruby port. I also make roasted garlic parmesan crustini's for the bread, instead of just plain bread, but I like an adventure. Fantastic soup!
