Curried Butternut Squash and Pear Soup
This is a very delicious soup. I will be making it again. Thanks for the recipe. I substituted 4 cups of water with two veggie broth bouillon cubs in place of the chicken broth. Also the 30 minutes of cooking is not necessary. while you are sautéing the onions garlic and spice cook the pears with about 1/3 cup water on a low simmer for 5 minutes or until soft. Then add them to the pot. Next add the broth and squash. You can use a hand blender or pour it all in a glass blender and blend before you heat it all up. You do not need to cook just let it get to the desired temp and serve. the less you cook the soup the more nutritious and colorful it is. Also you can skip the half and half. It is just as good if not better without. Taste it before you add it and you'll see.

Chef John's Salmon Cakes
Fresh (wild) salmon is the healthier choice. Canned foods are typically ridden with bpa. Bread crumbs are also healthier than saltines. Most Saltines contain hydrogenated soybean oil and high fructose corn syrup. Not to mention loads of refined white salt.
