Grandma Johnson's Scones
After 786 mostly rave reviews, there's not much more I can add that hasn't already been said. These scones are FAB! The dough is a little dry, but it's supposed to be... that's the nature of a scone dough (as opposed to biscuit dough, which is very wet). Make sure your butter is ice cold when you cut it into the flour mixture - those hard little nubs of butter are what make the finished product light and airy. I can't say enough about the recipe - it's pretty perfect as is.

Black Bean Vegetable Soup
This soup is really delicious and came together very quickly. I substituted 2 3/4 cups cooked black beans for the canned ones. Next time I will try frozen corn instead of canned as one of the other reviewers suggested to reduce the amount of sodium. I prefer to add my own seasoning at the table to punch up the flavor. By adding a squeeze of fresh lime and a bit of salsa into my bowl, I found that it perked right up without adding any additional salt. I will definately be making this again.
