Carrot Dill Soup
WoW - so, so good! Totally surprised! I couldn't stand to lose all those nutrients from the boiled carrots, so I made a standard soup base by sauteeing the onions and carrots for about 8 minutes, then added the garlic, then sauteed for another 3 or so and added the chicken stock. Boiled for about 15 minutes until carrots were quite tender. Pureed as indicated, and honestly at this point with a tad more liquid this is an awesome soup on it's own! I did add extra chicken stock vs milk, and then the herbs - fantastic! Thank you for sharing this surprisingly wonderful recipe!

Sweet Dinner Rolls
Very good! Made into pull apart buns for dinner (7 small rounds in a circle pan) and froze the rest. Excellent flavour, would be so awesome for cinnamon buns. Oh, and made the old fashioned way (see previous reviews) and it turned out great.

Szechwan Shrimp
I doubled the sauce as per other reviewers and we were happy with the finished product. I added minced fresh ginger to the garlic and green onions, and sauteed raw shrimp with that mixture before adding the sauce - I think that made a big difference, it had a very nice taste of shrimp. It was delicious but a bit too thick for our liking, next time I will add less corn starch.
