Hoppin' John Skillet
I was looking around for something to use my black-eyed peas in and came across this. It came out really nicely, and quite tasty indeed! I did end up replacing a few things based on what I had on hand. Lacking bacon, I browned up a couple of spicy beef sausages (diced) and a bit of ground beef to make it a little more dynamic. I also added in some diced green pepper and went with white instead of brown on the rice (a preference thing). I used dry peas that I soaked and cooked beforehand and skipped on the tomato, and only used the cheese as a topping (which ended up getting mixed in anyway). It struck me as a sort of a down-home Southern style jambalaya. It's definitely going on the menu again!

Hot Italian Giardiniera
[FIRST TIME:] I let it sit for most of a day before trying it for the first time... and now I can't stop eating it!! [MANY MOONS LATER:] It's been forever since I made this the first time, and have been looking forward to having the time and workspace to do it again. Reading another review and remembering my first batch, I did a little research. Safflower oil ought not to solidify in the fridge. I'll let you know in a few days.

Beer Pancakes
Well, let me tell you... the batter tastes awful, but the pancake tastes delicious! I made mine with half-white, half-wheat and a Bud Light. It occurs to me that these might also be very good with a jam or jelly.
