Skillet Corn Bread
Three-star as written--to bland. After trying it and being meh about it, decided to try other reviewers suggestions and adding sugar. Decided to average it between the suggested 1/4 and 1/2--so went for 1/3. Four star after that. Loved using my cast iron skillet to make this to go with our cold winter's day five bean soup which had simmered all day.

Ham Bone and Vegetable Soup
Thank you for submitting a delicious and fabulous base recipe. I am glad to have found it since we had a large ham bone with a lot of meat left on it that I had simmered the heck out of and then had to figure out how to use. Vegetable soup is supposed to be forgiving and to use up what one has in the house, and this particular recipe is true to that principle. I had no bacon and no celery. I think all soup is best with celery, so would ordinarily use it (but vegetable soup is supposed to prevent one from needing to go to the store so I didn't). Instead of peeling and chopping carrots and potatoes, which I ordinarily would do, I used 2 bags of frozen soup vegetables. Then omitted the frozen corn because the vegetables included corn as well as the carrots and potatoes. I don't use bouillon (too much sodium) and somehow we had three open low sodium organic chicken broth boxes in the fridge to use up, so in they went. Needed to use half a head of cabbage, so I sauteed it with the onion and garlic til done. Wanted to give it a minestrone-effect so added the remnants of a box of whole wheat spaghetti and a drained can of organic garbanzo beans. Then seasoned with a bit of dried oregano and basil. I apologize for changing the recipe and then rating my own, but again the whole point of vegetable soup is to improvise and use the leftovers. We enjoyed this more than I could ever tell. For speed, just cooked on the stove top. Again, thanks for a fabulous base recipe.

Amazing Lentils and Kale
Maybe not amazing, but good. My husband and I each rated it a 4, while my mother rated it a 3. Made it as directed, except used chicken broth as opposed to vegetable broth. Served it on rice which was good as it cut the heat quite a bit and made it more interesting. I liked the suggestion of one reviewer to season it with curry as opposed to the cumin. If I make it again, I think that I will try the curry to give it an Indian flair.
