Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2006
This came out great...I did customize it...used a pound of beef and more fresh carrots plus I threw in a can of green beans and a can of corn a few minutes before serving. I always coat my beef in a mixture of flour, a pinch of salt, and 2 teaspoons black pepper. Also, I used a product called: Better than Boullion, more convenient than the hard cubes...I, like some of the others, like a thick stew so I added 2T. more cornstarch. Rosemary is one of my favorite spices, but next time I will decrease it. I added a bay leaf as one reviewer suggested, great flavor addition...One suggestion: cut carrots very thin, same with celery and potatoes..or else pre cook as another person recommended...First time I made this and cut the carrots in 1 inch chunks as directed, they were hard after 2 hours of cooking. I used six cups of broth as I add lots of veggies. Served with cheesey biscuits once and with a pesto french bread several times...very hearty.

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2006
A big WOW! My entire family loved this recipe. I used dried mango and apricots for the dried fruit...Loved the consistency...this sauce was the star of what can be a rather mundane turkey dinner....will probably bring it to mom's again this Thanksgiving...

Chicken and Apple Curry

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2006
I liked this recipe..I had three large chicken breasts (which I seared prior to placing in baking pan), to the exact amt. of sauce from the recipe...I added raisins and about 1/2 cup extra apple and one potato cubed , served this over a small bed of rice with a side of pineapple...(the latter was the perfect compliment)...DEFINITELY needed an extra tablespoon of curry, (which I will add next time). Great comfort food.
