Trying out a new recipe, then not following it exactly and being disappointed in the results. Lesson: Follow a recipe exactly for the first time. Then you can make changes.

Vegan Brownies
I like the flavor, but the texture was off. I measured exactly per the recipe, I tend to make it that way on the first try. But it didn't hold together, it was a bit cakey and the bottom layer kind of slipped away from the top. (A thin bottom layer stayed on the spatula as I put the brownie on a plate.) Maybe it was the cup of oil. Next time I will use some applesauce to replace some oil and use a non-dairy milk vs water. Then add in chocolate chips or chunks. But by then its NOT this recipe anymore. I think it can definitely be improved upon.

Roasted Red Bell Pepper Soup
I shouldnt rate this only because I didn't follow the recipe exactly. But the recipe as written sounded a little bland and I didnt have fresh tomatoes. So in its place I used 2 cans - one diced can and one stewed "mexican" can. I also added fresh chopped basil. I also did not use the roux, it seemed like a step it didnt need. Plus, I only had 2 cups of chicken broth so I used veggie broth for the remainder. But -It was VERY good. I even reserved a small portion of the soup to experiment with and added a little buttermilk to that small portion and it was good as well. Glad I tried this one!
