Chewy Caramel
I am giving it a 4 only because I screwed up...so, it could have been a 5 if I were a bit braver! I let it reach 'soft ball' temp as written on my candy thermometer (which is 230 deg. F), and kept on stirring for 2 minutes. But it looked like it was going to boil over at any second. Well if at any moment I looked away, and didn't stir, it would have boiled over. So I figured, it can't possibly get any higher than this and took it off the stove. Instead of being chewy, my caramel came out gooey ;) But, it was okay...it became chocolate filling, and it was still delicious! I am definitely going to try it again...but will be a while since I have sooo much gooey caramel!! And this stuff ain't exactly kind to your hips!

Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing
Wow, way too sweet! And I even halved the amount of sugar! I had to add more vinegar and oil just to be able to use it! I should have listened to the other reviewers and 1/4 the amount of sugar. I still have some left, and it is still way too sweet...I think I will add more balsamic vinegar, just to give it a bit more zing for the next salad.

Mulligatawny Soup II
Note: It's very hard to get fresh curry leaves in North America. You have to get it at specialty Indian stores. You can substitute a Bay leaf instead, as recommended by my Indian friend. It isn't anything like the curry powder, which is a combination of the spices used in this recipe (tumeric, ginger, corriander, cumin...etc) This soup was excellent, but very spicy. I can usually handle my heat...but this was quite hot! The recipe calls for 2 green chiles chopped up, but it doesn't say whether to include the seeds or not. So I included the seeds for one and not the other, and I think that made it extremely HOT. We had to eat it with bread...but it's still very yummy. I'll make it again, with just one chile next time.
