Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
I received a large butternut squash in a box of organic produce, and found this recipe to make last night. I made some of the suggested adjustments - instead of the suggested veggies, I used one small carrot, one sweet potato, half of a large yellow onion, and a clove of garlic. I also poked holes in the squash, and roasted it for 40 minutes of 400 degrees before peeling. After using my immersion blender (which, in cases like this is a godsend!), I found it to be a little bland. I salted, peppered, nutmegged, and cayenned, but it still wasn't quite as flavorful as I'd like. That's where the sour cream saved the day. I added a few dollops to the pot to thicken it up a bit, as well as one in each bowl after serving. It was AMAZING. Sweet, spicy, and tart, all at once! I'm reheating some tonight for dinner!

Herbed Corn

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
I knew that I wanted a corn side dish with the BBQ chicken. What I wasn't expecting was for the corn to upstage the main dish so much. Even without fresh parsley, dill weed, and thyme, the corn was so flavorful and delicious! I'm making it again tonight!
