Bridge is at our house tonight. I don't play, but I usually "help" Gary make dinner and snacks. He almost always suggests brownies. I thought Valentine Cookies would be more fun.
I'm not a baker, but this dough seemed fairly easy to roll. Didn't give me any trouble.
This is a nice healthy soup with butternut squash and kale. I used tiny pasta shells instead of potato. Unfortunately, it was the most bland thing I have ever tasted. I kept trying to "fix" it. I added a can of stewed tomatoes, and that helped, but not enough. Then I added some homemade chicken stock that I had in the freezer. That helped a lot, but this still isn't a recipe I'd ever make again.
