Re:Old-Fashioned Gingerbread

WOW - finally a moist yummy Gingerbread.I took the advice from another reviewer and doubled the spices which everyone really liked.My alteration: I substituted King Arthur Gluten Free flour and added a teaspoon of Xantham Gum.Baked as directed, and it was amazing. Day two it's still super moist!

Re:Classic Lattice-Top Blueberry Pie

Wow - what a delightful pie. Having tried numerous blueberry pie recipes over the years I have found THE ONE.I cheated and used frozen blueberries since I had them on hand and a Trader Joe's frozen pie crust (this is truly amazing ready made crust - almost as good as homemade) - the pie was amazing !The only change I would make would be to omit the lemon juice and/or lest from the filling as our pie was too "lemony".

Re:Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes

This recipe was ok. Nothing different from the method I usually employ. I made it the day before, which should have intensified the flavor - it did not.If you are used to bland potatoes this might be a new spin for you - try it.When I make mashed potatoes, I warm the milk, butter, cream, garlic etc in a separate pan to avoid the gummy results.

Re:Herb-Roasted Chicken with Lemons

I chose this recipe after reading the reviews and while I found this to be a good recipe, I didn't find it to be exceptional. The herbs scorched on the bottom of the pan - we do not use non-stick pans for health reasons, so the glass pan didn't work as well. It was good, just not great.

Re:Roasted Sweet Potato Soup with Sorghum Butter and Duck Cracklings

WOW - my family went nuts over this soup. Definately a keeper. The balance of the sweet, slightly salty (bacon) and satisfying weight of the soup was delightful.Variation - used crumbed bacon as it's an easier step than the duck cracklings; didn't have any buttermilk so I used heavy cream exclusively; and I used an immersion blender as it's easier than blending in small batches.
