    Elegant Mushroom Soup (p. 69): A thick, creamy soup that's very tasty from generous amounts of butter and cream. There aren't a lot of other flavors competing with the mushrooms so their flavor comes through clearly. I forget to buy scallions and substituted 1/3 c red onion. I also added more dried tarragon than called for in the recipe to boost that flavor but would try to use fresh tarragon instead in the future. Recipe directions are scant - I was glad I've made soups like this before! Recipe doesn't have you cook the mushrooms very much and it tasted a bit raw to me - I ended up simmering the soup covered for ~15-20 minutes before adding the cream. Also note that although the recipe says it yields 6 servings, it makes ~4.5 cups of soup so each portion at that number of servings is quite modest.

    Almond Poppy Seed Bread (p. 246): Very nice - rich, moist, tender, close-crumbed. Definitely a cake versus a bread! The orange juice concentrate-based glaze works really well with the almond and poppy seed flavors. I made half the recipe (1 loaf vs. 2) and that worked fine. The batter's pretty liquidy and the top of the cake was well-browned by the time the cake center finished setting but didn't turn bitter. Some of my ingredients were cooler than room temperature so that probably contributed to the center taking a bit longer to set. Doesn't have a ton of poppy seeds - I'll probably double or triple them in the future since I like their flavor and the cake is moist enough to handle extra without drying out. Recipe says to mix glaze to "spreading" consistency and spread it on top of the cake. Mine was definitely a "pouring" consistency and there was more than would coat/soak into the top of the cake, so I coated the sides with it, too.
