Bigos (Hunter's Stew)

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
Um, it's a very generic, salty dish that doesn't bear much of a similarity to the Polish hunter's stew, contrary to what others wrote below. As an authentic bigos, it should at least have 2 chopped green apples, a couple pounds of venison, shredded ham instead of bacon and pork, a couple of cubed potatoes, and no sauerkraut. You need to have a thick, rich, beautiful brown base. Napa cabbage should replace the sauerkraut so that it cooks down and soaks up the flavors, instead of making it salty. There is no "one" recipe for bigos, but it is a hunter's stew and it should be meaty and rich...and shouldn't be salty. This is a recipe for kiel and sauerkraut, not bigos.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
Like some of the others, I had a real problem with these getting hard enough to take off the cookie sheet. I ended up adding more flour, increasing the temp 10 degrees, and the time by 2-3 minutes...and I followed the directions to a T. In the end, they were good. But much too much work to get them right and 2 wasted batches before we got there.
