Butternut Squash Bisque
Thank you for the comments - they were very usefull. I followed many of the suggestions as well as added my own small changes to make the soup more flavorful and full bodied: I roasted all the vegetables including carrots, a red pepper, of course the butternut, as well as a whole head of garlic in olive oil. Added a few chillies to the onion when sautéing and added the roasted garlic purée (which was squeezed out from the whole head of the roasted garlic). Once all was combined I added 1/2 cinnamon stick to the soup with the flavorings after the broth was added (I used homemade beef and chicken broths). At the end I adjusted for taste by adding some honey, since I found the final product not quite sweet enough. It came out a very flavorful bisque and definitely not flat or tasteless as some commenters may have found. This recipe is an excellent starting point and definitely holds its own. Enjoy.

Maple Salmon
Best cooked salmon I ever tasted. I always liked salmon just as sashimi or in sushi - never cooked. This recipe changed my mind. I'll make it again and again.

Baked Whole Cauliflower
I just made this recipe and immediately, upon trying it, ate half of the cauliflower. To put it simply, this is very good. I intend to make it again and again. Thanks for sharing.
