Scalloped Tomatoes
I used tomatoes that I had blanched and froze from last year's garden, and drained most of the juice. I followed the recipe, adding additional brown sugar because we like them sweeter, basil, garlic salt and parmesan cheese. Instead of white bread cubes, I chopped up garlic herb rolls my hubby had bought at the bakery. We loved this and it will be a go-to recipe for our tomatoes this year!

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls
Wow. I doubled the recipe and I was able to make 28 good sized rolls. I used two 12 hole cupcake tins and one small square pan. The centers rose quite high while baking on the rolls in the tins. I'm not sure why, but it didn't matter. These are wonderful. My EMT class will enjoy them for breakfast in the morning, that's for sure! Thank you so much for this recipe.

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II
I've never used leeks before but I heard they make a great soup. I found this recipe and because of the ratings decided to try it. I used baby reds and a few gold potatoes (since that is what I had on hand), 8 cups chicken broth, 2 bay leaves, and a pinch or so of thyme, parsley, rosemary and dill seed. I fried half the bacon suggested to a nice crisp. I rinsed three medium size leeks and used part of the white bulb and most of the green leaves, chopped thinly and used the bacon grease to sauté the leeks til tender. And as others suggested, I added 2 chopped garlic cloves with the leeks. Then I used half and half and 2% milk. A little pepper, didn't add any salt, and this is delicious. Next time I'll add chopped celery and carrots with the leeks. This is definitely a keeper.
