Creole Gumbo

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
I had messed up another recipe and was looking in '' for a way to rescue our dinner, and used this as the basis, and it worked out fine and we're still married. Instead of using water for the 2nd part of the recipe, I used a box of low sodium chicken broth to good effect, coming out with a nice, thick, gravy-like liquid. I also didn't have shrimp, so didn't need to use the final hour of simmering (after all, the initial 40 min. of boiling plus the next 1 1/2 hrs. more than cooked that fowl) but did add already cooked rice (Chinese leftovers, what can I say?) to the chicken and sausage until the rice was thoroughly reheated. Probably should have just reheated the rice and put the dish over that.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
This soup certainly delivered the goods according to my wife and I. On soup recipes like this, we tend to omit the cream, or 1/2 & 1/2, not on any principle, but because we haven't found that it adds to the flavor.

Hearty Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
My wife said she wanted a hearty soup tonight, giving me short notice. Finding this recipe on the site made the evening for us. Since 'hearty' for me means meat, I cooked some sweet Italian turkey sausage on the side and dumped it in for about the last 10 min. There are myriad ways of successfully altering this recipe, and always coming out on top, I would suspect. Thanks.
