Potato Leek Soup III
This soup is simple and fantastic. I got comps. from hubby on this. The only thing I did different was to wait until the potatoes were tender to add the cream. I don't think you should boil the cream too long.

Velvety Pumpkin Soup With Blue Cheese and Bacon
Very good and quick to prepare. The longest part was browning the bacon! It was just a bit spicy for my taste, so I will cut the cayenne in half next time and put out hot sauce on the side. My husband loved it just as it was.

Barm Brack
Not horrid, but.... Mine was done baking after an hour, and hour-forty-five would have definitely been too much. All of the fruit settled to the bottom, even though I mixed it all up and poured it and put it right in the oven. The batter was very runny, and I suspect not thick enough to support the fruit. The overall taste was fine. I used Constant Comment tea from Bigelow. It is an orange spice tea. I think next time perhaps more flour.
