Clark Gable Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
These were so good. I was out of milk so I used half a cup of cream and half a cup of water and they still turned out beautifully. I used the 2 TBS of baking powder and they rose up to 2 inches while on the griddle. The outside was crunchy and the inside was bready. No need to buy mix from the store. These are delicious, easy and fast.

Red Pepper Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
Very easy and good. I added a little salt, parsley and basil. I also pan-seared sea scallops and added three to each bowl of soup. Easy and impressive.

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
Changes: I left out the carraway seeds and I used about two cups of mixed raisins since that is how much came in the bag. The dough was very gooey and difficult to knead so I just stirred it. I forgot to carve the "X" in the top. The bread baked in about 50 minutes. It was VERY GOOD! I was afraid it would be crumbly but the crust was nice and crisp and the bread was sturdy. It was not too sweet but makes a good dessert. I'd like to try it as French toast.

Beer Cheese Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
Very good! I used dark beer one time (Shiner Bock) and Budweiser one time. The dark beer gave it a much more complex, interesting flavor. The Bud didn't do much for it at all. I also followed the advice of another commenter and dissolved the cornstarch in the chicken broth then added it and brought it to a boil, then added beer and brought to a boil, then slowly added the cheese by the small handful (I used sharp cheddar) and let it dissolve before adding more, stirring very often. I also cooked and crumbled some bacon for sprinkles and bought a loaf of dense, dark German bread which I toasted. Very delicious and easy! 2/26/09 I just noticed a mistake: I add the cream before I add the cheese. But, I have changed the way I make this soup! I make it all the time. I have been cooking 1/2 lb. of bacon in pot then cooking the onion and garlic in bacon grease. I changed it around and now use the beer to deglaze the pan, then bring to a boil for 3 minutes, then add chicken broth and cornstarch and bring to a boil. Next I turn the heat down and add the cream or half-n-half. I do slowly add the cheese by sprinkling it over the surface of the liquid and letting it melt. I stir that in and then repeat til I used all the cheese. I serve the crumbled bacon and sour cream for toppers. I also put a whole yellow onion in and I think it makes the soup more filling. My soup is usually pretty thick so I just add more chicken broth to make it the consistancy I like and that includes
