Sweet, Salty, Spicy Party Nuts
Yummy! Made this twice over the holidays, and everyone loved them. First batch used almonds and walnuts (still 4 cups total) with smoked paprika instead of cayenne (only because I'd never used smoked paprika, and wasn't sure how much heat it had already). They were really good ... my husband's first comment was "tastes like bacon" ! Second batch used cashews and almonds, with all seasonings as listed, plus a teaspoon of smoked paprika. We liked this batch even more, and can't stop eating them! For the people that mentioned them "sticking together", I suggest you missed watching the video, which explains that when you take them out of the oven to stir, it's a thorough 3 or 4 minute process ... not a quick stir like when you're making party mix. After that cooling and stirring, I had no sugar/spice mixture left on the parchment sheet I used, meaning it was all adhered to the nuts as it should be. After the final baking and cooling, every nut was perfectly coated and separate as they should be. Great recipe!

Black Bean Vegetable Soup
Yummy! I made it just like the recipe, other than adding celery just because I had it on hand. Sometimes serving sizes ate a little skimpy, and I wanted leftovers, so I made 1.5 (12 servings), and it made lots! Not sure why people thought it was too much broth ... the bean/tomato purée thickens it perfectly. My only negative comment would be that calling this "vegetable soup" is a little misleading ... this is much more a black bean soup, and a lovely one at that!

Strawberry Cobbler I
This was ok. We really liked the cobbler topping, but weren't crazy about the strawberry part. Might be better with a combo of fruits. I used 3/4 c water and 1/4 c lemon juice, and doubled the cornstarch. Still very juicy ... Might cut by 1/4 if I try again.
