Lentil patties: I was more than a little intimidated by Taymer Mason's instructions on getting the perfect short crust pastry crust for these, and I admit to being a bit frantic when folding up the lentil patties, but the end result was worth it! I'm hoping to perfect my ability to prepare this recipe. Rather than being a lame alternative to a traditional yucca-based empanada dough as I feared, the short crust pastry crust was really lovely in its own right - flaky and light. My only note for future use is to make a double pastry crust for the appetizer-sized patties; I had a lot of filling left over.

Pumpkin soup: This squash-based soup (Caribbean pumpkin is actually squash) was really easy to make and perfectly spiced. I will make it again, particularly if I want to dress up a dinner for company.
