Ground Beef Goulash
WHY in God's name do people rate a recipe and admit they changed all the ingredients! They aren't rating the recipe, they are rating their own! That isn't fair to the person posting their recipe! Post your own recipe!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
It was GOOD potato soup, but I don't understand what all the five stars is for. If you want potato soup, go ahead and make this one but it's nothing I'd say you HAVE to try. I do a lot of cooking, and I guess for me, it was a little bland. I wasn't crazy about the texture either, kind of thin with cubed potatoes! I hit it with my immersion blender for a few seconds and that helped a lot. Hubby really liked it!

Cranberry Orange Cookies
Like everyone else, I thought these cookies were very good. I read the reviews before I started and took the advice of "Brooke Salt" and added 1 1/2 teaspoons of orange zest, cut fresh cranberries in half, addded 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract and I used slivered almonds instead of walnuts. After baking the first tray, I found out "Loves Cheese" was also right! The first tray flatted out too much unless you like really, really, thin cookies. I had the next batch ready to go in the oven and threw them back in the bowl and added about a half cup more of flour. The next thing I saw she was right about, was baking at 350 instead of 375. I am selling mine on cookie trays and don't want dark brown edges! If you like dark brown edges, bake at 375! They were sweet and didn't need frosting, but since they were going on cookie trays, I felt they needed to be dressed up a little and didn't want the added sweetness so I melted some white chocolate and drizzled on top. Now, all that being said, isn't it amazing that over 300 people rated this cookie, most of them with 5 stars and so many of us still find fault with it? :)
