Sherry Chicken Curry
For all of the exotic sounding food combinations in this recipe, I found it quite uninspiring and disappointing. I added another tablespoon + of curry powder and it still didn't seem enough. I also added 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper which did liven things up a bit, but there seemed to be just too much too thick liquid to seem right. Sorry, because it did look simple enough. Here are a few suggestions. Lightly sautee the onions and garlic in the oil. Add the curry powder and ginger and toast until it is fragrant, then add the chicken to be coated with the spice mixture and sautee that a little. Bee certain to lightly coat the chicken with cornstarch or you'll have a lumpy mess on your hands! Then add the beef bouillon which you have dissolved in 1 cup or more of hot water (important!) and sherry to deglaze the pan. Then proceed with the peanut butter and water adding coconut milk toward the end.

Spiced Butternut Squash Soup
This was fantastic with a few additions! Like another reviewer, I added the puree from an acorn squash. I also doubled the spices with the exception of the cayenne pepper. It seemed still to be lacking something, so I tried a small amount with some finely ground rosemary. What a finish!! One word about the ingredient list. Even I, a seasoned (no pun intended)cook was momentarily confused by the listing--2 (49.5 oz) cans of chicken stock; and further interested in how the 49.5 oz. was arrived at since no combination of the popular can/box sizes (14, 28, 32 oz.) would total that amount. I settled for a 14 oz. can and a 32 oz. box of vegetable stock to good results. Who's going to quibble over 3.5 oz. anyway?
