German-Style Beet Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2005
This recipe is great! I used only 1 tbsp of Caraway seeds instead of 2 and I added a bit of fresh dill, but mostly I followed the recipe. It was very great the 1st night, but was even better 2 days later! It definately reminds me of the flavors of my German grandmother's cooking.

Creamy Butternut Squash With Cinnamon Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
This might have been the best thing that I have ever made. It was our first course at our Thanksgiving meal and it got absolute raves from everyone (including my 5 year old!) I mostly followed the recipe except I only used 1 tsp of cinnamon instead of 1 1/2tsp (although the full amount probably would have been fine, I worried that it was too much). I was very lucky that I had all the veggies from our local organic CSA and I used my own chicken stock. I also added leeks because I had them, as well as a sprig of fresh thyme. I used a quart of chicken stock and about 2 lbs of butternut squash. It made a good consistency soup that needed almost no half and half at all (I probably used about 1/2 cup). The cayenne gave this a wonderful kick. I garnished with fresh thyme instead of apple chips. My family said that it was "restaurant quality" soup. It is a great recipe that I am sure will become a T-day tradition in our house.

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2006
A tender and delicious muffin. I was looking for as simple a recipe as possible since my "helper" was a 3 year old. I added about 1/2 cup chocolate chips so I reduced the sugar to a generous 1/2 cup and the butter to 5 tbsp (just under 1/3 cup). I made these into mini muffins and baked for 15 minutes. Perfect! I love a simple recipe that comes out great.
