Butternut Squash Soup II
I made this today. The first time I make a recipe I try and follow it exactly before I make changes so my review is based on the original. However, this time, I made a few (very few) changes but I don't think it made that major a difference so I will rate away. I began by piercing the squash and microwaving it for 10 minutes. Easy-peasy pealing. I did not use celery as I do not like celery in things and I did not use the regular potatoes. I used a sweet potato as my squash was kind of small and I thought this would help. I did the rest the same, but added about a tablespoon of freshly ground ginger and a dash of cayenne pepper. I served it with a dollop of sour cream. The soup was amazingly good. Oh, I used my stick blender to puree. I don't think the changes I made took that much away from the original recipe. It was excellent. Thank you for sharing. I will not buy Trader Joe's in a box any longer.

Slow Cooker, Easy Baked Potato Soup
Thank you. This is one of the best recipes I have gotten off of this site in a long time. Made this for the first time today to serve to company and everyone loved it. I followed the recipe almost exactly. I substituted low sodium chicken broth for the water and bullion. I did make a mistake though. I was on a roll adding ingredients and put the half and half (non-fat) in the soup for the full cooking. It made the appearance of the soup a little different but the taste was still very, very, good. I did have to add some instant potatoes at the end to thicken it up. Very, Very good stuff. I served it with a Caesar salad and beer bread. Next time I am going to double the recipe to have more leftovers. Actually, we are going away for the weekend and I think I will make some of this to take with us. Excellent.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
Did not like this cookie AT ALL. Based on so many positive reviews I made them to take on a family camping trip. They did not flatten out, but they were bland and almost overly "chewy". After everyone tried them they asked if there was anything else. I pulled out the store bought cookies which were a big hit. These cookies were a waste of time and ingredients.
