Easy Chickpea Curry
Fixed it very close to described, but added a large fresh minced (seeded) jalapeño pepper for a little extra 'oomph.' Also parboiled the (small quartered gold) potatoes. Also used light coconut milk. It was mild but delicious, served over white rice.

Butternut Squash Soup II
Outstanding basic recipe, with full credit to Maplebird for the original inspiration! Like many others, I took some liberties according to my (and my wife's) taste - and tendency to want to change things 'just cause.' I vertically halved a fairly large squash and microwaved it (high) about 15 min in a half-inch of water - it was easy to scoop out the flesh with a grapefruit spoon. I cubed one Idaho potato and one sweet potato, and parboiled them briefly before adding them to the skillet (olive oil) with the sautéing onion - to which I had added two cloves minced garlic. I omitted the carrot due simply to taste, and added a minced fresh jalapeño (seeded) pepper to the onion/garlic/potatoes mixture. I transferred the sautéed mix and squash to a soup pot, along with about four cups of hot vegetable broth (I'm vegetarian). Brought to a boil with salt, some white pepper, and a shake of red pepper flakes. (Add water/broth as needed to desired consistency.) After about 45 minutes on medium low heat, uncovered, I added half a cup of half-and-half, reduced heat to very low for five minutes, and did not puree. And the required dollop of SC - sour cream - in the bowl...Loved it!

Herbed Rice and Spicy Black Bean Salad
I fixed this exactly as stated, except had to use dried thyme -- and it was fantastic! It was easy, quick, and the result was spicy but just like we like it. I did use a good olive oil that we hadn't yet opened, and I always think that makes a positive difference. Also used a good red wine vinegar. But neither the olive oil or the vinegar was especially rare or expensive. Very flavorful right off the bat -- didn't have to wait a day for the flavors to fully blend -- even fifteen minutes after fixing it was tangy, tasty, and filling. This will become a standby for my wife and me!
