Canadian Maple Scones
These were okay, nothing exceptional. Not really a maple flavor even though I used pure maple syrup. I wasn't impressed by the topping, ended up adding more brown sugar because it was bland and too flour-y. Some cinnamon in it might help. Personally, I'll just be moving on. Thanks, anyway.

London Broil II
Yum!! Garlicky, salty, very flavorful!!! However, this is not a "rub", so I doubled it (and added extra garlic. Try the frozen chopped garlic at Trader Joe's--it's excellent) and used it as a marinade. I tried to cook my hunk of meat in the crock pot, as mentioned in a different LB recipe, and that did not turn out so well. Still very tough. Nothing against this recipe, just sharing my experience. I also made another batch and put a second hunk of meat in a large ziploc and tossed it in the freezer. Loved this!

Turkey Taco Soup
Wonderful! Delicious!! I used my Thanksgiving turkey,cooked-down carcass and broth from it. The few changes I made were mostly personal preferences. I used pinto beans, because I think they're more taco-y than kidney. And hominy instead of corn, again--more taco-y. I put in a chopped red bell pepper, and a chopped, seeded jalapeno. This would make a wonderful soup to serve a crowd! Yum, yum!!!!

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
