Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
Loved this soup! I did make changes based on other reviews and my own preferences. First, I only precooked the beef; everything else just went raw into the crock in the morning. I cut the beef into large pieces and seasoned with Montreal steak seasoning, cooked ~3 hours the night before and then cut into bite-sized pieces. I left out the frozen veggies but used a whole 1-lb bag of carrots, added 3 large red potatoes in bite-sized pieces, and about 1 cup of butternut squash pieces as well. Left out the sugar and tomatoes, added a splash of soy sauce, upped the barley to 1 cup, and made about 10 cups of beef bouillon but only added enough to fill the crock. I kept the extra 2 cups or so to add to leftovers. I think this recipe was even better as leftovers. Easy and delicious, smelled great to come home to!

Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
This was absolutely perfect. I was a bit worried that the batter didn't look like the same consistency as boxed cake mix (the only other cakes I've ever made, I'm new to baking), but the cupcakes turned out so moist and tasty nobody could eat just one. I did have to use dry ground ginger instead of crystallized, but it still tasted great.
