    Reviewed Low Fat Potato Soup

    "As my first attempt at potato soup, this came out pretty good! Instead of onion, I used two chopped leeks which were much milder in flavor. However, I made the mistake of using red (waxy-type) potatoes instead of white (starchy) potatoes -- the red potatoes held their shape even after 7 hours in the crockpot ... not that big of a deal, since th..."

    "Excellent cookies! I used a caramel cake mix, and added chopped walnuts and milk chocolate covered Heath bits -- yummy! I found that leaving the cookie dough in mounds made a softer cookie, which I liked better than the flattened ones. Can't wait to try other cake mix flavors -- thanks for posting! -M =D"

    "As usual, Kittencal never disappoints! These are extremely good cookies for anyone looking for a "chocolate fix". I only had dark brown sugar on hand, but it did not seem to affect the taste -- especially since I added both semi-sweet & white chocolate chips and roughly chopped macadamia nuts. I found the baking trick was to take them out of my..."

    "These are soooo good! I made the first batch exactly as written, but they were still too wet even after the 45 minute baking time (and stirring every 15min). I reduced the water to 1-1/2 Tbsp on the next batch, and they came out perfect! These will be so pretty in cellophane bags with a holiday ribbon in addition to my cookie tins as gifts. Th..."

    "Just made two batches of this using Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate chips, Hershey's Premium White Chocolate chips & crushed candy canes. Had some separation of the layers, and I don't think it's quite peppermint-y enough -- next time I will add a touch of peppermint oil to the dark chocolate. Thanks for posting."

    "Wow - are these ever good! I only made a couple of changes -- added 2-3Tbsp of brown sugar to the cream cheese mixture (thought it might be too tangy on its own); added 1/4 c old-fashioned oats to the streusel mixture; reduced the sugar in the muffin batter to 1-1/2 c; and used canola oil (instead of olive oil). Toasting the pecans - in a small ..."

    "I love scones, and these are no exception. This is a good, basic recipe that you can leave plain or add whatever you please. The dough was very easy to work with; neither sticky nor too dry. I added a 1/2 tsp of orange extract, the zest of one orange and 1/2 cup of sweetened dried cranberries. When they were cool, I made a simple powdered suga..."

    "Made these last weekend when my sister was visiting. I cut down the cinnamon chips to 1/2 cup, and sprinkled the tops of the scones with cinnamon sugar before baking. The dough was easy to work with, and the house smelled heavenly while these were in the oven! So good for breakfast, a snack or dessert. Thanks for posting! -M =)"

    "Absolutely delicious! Made this for Easter dinner at my brother's house. I did make a few changes/additions: I added some lemon extract & a little yellow food coloring to the frosting ingredients, and used lemon curd between the layers (instead of frosting). Also used raspberries & sugared lemon rind strips for garnish. Wonderful presentation,..."

    "Wow -- is this ever good! I made it to take to Easter dinner at my brother's house and it was gone before anything else on the buffet. Everyone raved about it & wanted the recipe. I did omit the onion (bro' can't eat them), and the salt (per another reviewer) -- added some chopped garlic and diced water chestnuts for some crunch. Wish I had ma..."
