Grandma Coffee's Beef Barley Vegetable Soup
I halved the recipe as there are just my hubby and me. I gave this four stars because I made several changes to the original recipe based on others suggestions. I also have certain dietary restrictions. I didn't use the rutabaga or white corn, and I didn't have any bay leaves. First of all I cut the recipe in half as there are only my hubby and myself. He loves homemade soup. I used 3 cans of beef broth, 1 can diced tomatoes with it's juice, 2 carrots and 2 celery stalks, 1/2 sweet onion, the green and lima beans, 1/4 c. barley, 6 cups of water and 4 beef bullion cubes. I found that I needed to add the extra water because before I added the beans and barley as the soup was not covered with liquid. The soup is very thick but my hubby loves it so with those changes it will become a staple in our home. Thank you, jmbwarner, for a good recipe.

Irish Soda Bread in a Skillet
I have made this twice now with very positive results, but with the help of many suggestions made by others. I made it Friday night and it was gone in one day. There are just my husband and myself. I made it again Sunday morning for a special dinner after church. It went well with tossed green salad and Grandma Coffee's Beef Barley Vegetable Soup also made with changes. The reason I gave it four stars is because I needed to make those changes. It would have been very bland without them. For the first one I ended up using 2 tsp apple vinegar, 1 tsp baking soda, 2 tsp sugar, oregano and basil. For the second one I used the 2 tsp apple vinegar, 1 c. regular four and 1 c. whole wheat flour, kosher salt, 1 tsp. baking soda, 2 tsp sugar, oregano, basil, and parsley. This one didn't make it through Sunday. I also heavily buttered a medium sized cast iron fry pan for both and baked it for 25 minutes. The dough is very sticky but I kept taking it off of one hand with the fingers of the other hand and kneaded it with lots of flour. The second one will be a staple in our home. Thanks, Canadian Girl, for this recipe.

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas
We don't keep the spicy stuff around, so just used medium Pace salsa. Had extra sour cream and cilantro from a different recipe that had to be used up. So I found this. Used up what I had left of an onion. Only had Costco Panco chicken breasts. So I had to make lots of substitutions. But they turned out great! He loved them!! :)) Just goes to show a recipe like this can be used in a variety of ways. I was grateful for it.
