Great love it and used up my husbands last bunch of carrots he grew in the garden. I too used an immersion blender to puree the soup and it works out great. I also throw in a teaspoon of either cumin or garam masala for a little kick. We have this for supper with a ceasar salad and garlic toast... makes a quick evening meal. "

Great recipe.... I made it ahead of time as we were out with guests and then coming home for dinner so made this up the day beforehand and then re-heated for dinner. Was delicious and the recipe feeds a lot of people. Def. a keeper for my recipe file."

I often add in wedges of onion sliced through the root to keep them together and sliced zucchini and squash. I let them get crisp and brown all together, and voila potatoes and veggies done "

Ok I did this for a "wine and beer" Meet & Greet - gone in 60 seconds. Everyone loved 'em. Only change was that I did use Stilton and only used 1/2 tsp of salt and it was great. Flavors nicely balanced. Never use as much salt as they say as blue cheese has salt in it anyway. Have taken these to a lot of pot lucks and they always go down well....

Made this cake this past weeekend and was very disappointed. First off like the previous reviewer the batter was very thick and heavy. Virtually unspreadable and worse did not cover all the cake pan or apple. Consequently it came out as a very "holey" cake, not at all as in the picture. I double checked the recipe and yes I added all the liquid ingredients...
