Cajun Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2010
I am very impressed by this soup. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out due to the mixed reviews, but it's one of the best soups I've ever made! I did make a few small changes to the recipe- used hot Italian sausage, added one medium leek, kept the skin on the potatoes (to add a rustic texture, plus nutrition), and I added about 2 teaspoons of chili powder to bring up the spice a little more. Also, I reduced the amount of chicken broth (only 2 cups) and simmered it a little longer (about a half hour) in order to thicken it up. Overall, a great recipe that will be no stranger in our household!

Ukrainian Red Borscht Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
What an amazing soup! I made a few changes to it though and think it still came out beautifully. Instead of using pork sausage, I used about 6-8 slices of bacon (chopped) and a half pound of ground beef. This gave it a wonderful smoky flavor and reminded me of my grandmother's recipe. Also, I didn't add any of the tomato paste or canned tomatoes. I felt that the beet flavor would be more distinguished this way. Will absolutely make it again, my husband won't stop talking about it!
