Pumpkin Soup
My husband and I really liked this soup! A lot of the low reviews say that it is bland, we didn't find it bland, but its flavors (other than the pumpkin) are subtle. Also, its a good idea not to use this as a main course because it is a bit light; we paired it with homemade bread and that worked well for us but we were hungry later that evening. I made a few modifications: I added about 1/4 tsp nutmeg, I only used 1/3 c heavy cream, I added an extra 1/2 cup of onion and 2 extra cloves garlic (because we love onion and garlic) and the onion and garlic still did not overpower the pumpkin. I also added 1/2 a tbsp of sugar. I would NOT add the sugar again, we aren't a fan of sweet soups and this addition brought it close to our sweet level limit. If you give it the time the recipe recommends to let the garlic and onion cook down in the broth it'll give nice flavor and release the sweetness in the pumpkin. One more note! I used an emersion blender instead of spooning it into my food processor. Its so much easier, if you make a lot of soup I highly recommend investing in one! I will make this for my family when they come visit for the holidays. =)

Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever
The cookies were more oil than anything else, the taste is awful and they don't keep their shape at all!
