Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup
Great! I used purple potatoes and didn't have leeks so I sautéed an onion. I also just sautéed the mushrooms with the carrots and onion in the first step so it would save time. I also used 1/2 c. Sour cream and 1/2 c. Half & half. Delicious! Will definitely make again!

Best Ever Muffins
I just made these and loved the simplicity. I followed the recipe exactly and to half added frozen blueberries and half chocolate chips. I have only tried the blueberry ones and they taste wonderful. I did bake them at 375 degrees (my oven cooks fast...this time didn't use convection) and they were done in 15 mins. The tops really rose higher than my usual muffins (thought that would be the opposite w/o convection...but this was a first for me turning off convection!). Could be the 3tsp of baking powder. Either way this is a keeper.

Sheryl's Baked Potatoes
I needed a last minute recipe for baked potatoes for guests and decided to try this out...and turned out great! I did not have the seasoning so next time I will have that on hand which I think would make them taste even better. I baked them in the allotted time but pumped the heat up to 450-475 to ensure they were done in time, which they were. I may try microwating them some beforehand next time and keep the heat down to ensure they are done within an hour. My husband LOVED these and are perfect for a dinner with guests because they look so fancy!
