Lentil Soup
This was a delicious soup! I did use many of the suggestions mentioned (doubled the garlic, basil, oregano) and used a good white balsamic vinegar at the end. I didn't have any celery, so substituted red/yellow bell peppers. I also used 2, 26 oz cartons of chicken water. I added another 8 oz. of stock at the end to thin it down. I added a can of drained corn (it would be better with fire roasted corn),some shredded chicken breast and a few shakes of cumin and smoked paprika too. Great, hearty dinner!

Pumpkin Bread IV
This is a great recipe. I made it as written.... delicious, but not very healthy. But no one knew that my new version was good for you. The pumpkin and spices are what makes it so good (and the chocolate chips of course). I substituted white, whole wheat flour for the all purpose flour. You can always use a combination of the two to equal the 4 3/4 cups. There is way too much's not necessary. I used 1 1/3 cups each of white and dark brown sugar (I might try all brown sugar next time). I used 2 whole eggs and 7 egg whites (again, you can change the combination). I also substituted 1 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce plus 1/4 cup oil. And of course, I added a handful of mini chocolate chips. Delicious!

Mom's Italian Beef Barley Soup
This is a great, thick beef barley soup. I usually add a 1/2 bag of frozen spinach and sometimes a splash of red wine and thyme. As we are trying to limit the amount of red meat we eat, I tried this using chicken (or vegetable) stock (no bouillon) and cooked chicken or turkey (use dry, white wine for this version). It's healthy, hearty and great tasting!
