About this Cook
I'm currently living in a small town in Albania so I have to cook seasonally which can be interesting at times. Cabbage for several months can be a little much.

Spicy Black Bean Soup
Delicious! I added more spices than called for (may just be that mine are old) and used bacon instead of ham and no celery (no celery or ham in Albania) and used extra garlic instead of adding so much garlic salt. I also took Karen's advice into account and cooked everything but the bouillon, salt, and tomatoes until the beans were just about cooked through and then added them. I put some yogurt on top when serving it to help with the heat (I made mine pretty spicy). Great winter meal and super easy

Sourdough Scones
Not bad at all. I didn't have apple pie spice so used a mixture of cinnamon, cloves, allspice, etc., and then I put cinnamon sugar on the top. I think I'll add some fruit next time for some extra texture.

Yummy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce
Thought it was great. I added some salt, pepper, and a clove of crushed garlic to give it some extra zing. Would have been ok without but the consensus in the kitchen was that it could do with a little extra something.
