Great Grandad's Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2010
This is it! The recipe I've been searching for! I know everyone's taste in sugar cookies is different, but I love those soft Lofthouse sugar cookies, and wanted something like that I could make at home. This is the one! The one thing I noticed is they are easier to decorate when you cut them into smaller shapes. I had a mix of bigger and smaller cookie cutters, and the cookies are so incredibly soft that the larger cookies were a bit hard to handle. Delicious though! And totally easy to make. I sometimes think the simple approach is the best, as in this case. I wish I had an excuse to make them again sometime soon!

Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
I made this for the first time last night. Oh my gosh. It was fantastic! I actually couldn't believe that I made something that tasted this good! I'm a bit of a novice in the kitchen but am trying to cook more. This made me feel much more confident! I made it exactly as prescribed, except I couldn't figure out the chicken broth quantity either so I used 1 box and 1 can. I also omitted the sherry (being a non-drinker and not generally having alcohol on hand) and it was still just about perfect. Reading the recipe, the amount of spice looked a little light but it was perfect. Very subtle but I didn't want to overpower the flavor of the squash. Oh, I did forget to put in the salt and pepper but I didn't miss them at all. I pureed the heck out of it with my immersible handheld blender and made sure there were no lumps. Divine. My husband was also amazed at how great it was. We ate it as an appetizer before filet mignon, but it would be great standing on its own, too. I'm so glad I took a chance on this recipe! It's definitely a keeper.
