Best Fried Green Tomatoes
Never had fried green tomatoes before, perhaps I'm just not a fan of them in general, but this really didn't taste good at all. They did look beautiful, and the batter worked perfectly, crunchy and it stuck to the tomatoes well, but ultimately the cornmeal was too hard and gritty, and even after frying them, green tomatoes are simply sour. Fried+sour is not a combination that appeals to me whatsoever. So three stars for the recipe coming out as it should (I think), but I really didn't like this at all and my husband and I threw away most of what we made.

Botercake (Butter Cake)
Lots of confusion... let me (a Dutch person) explain... First of all: I have no idea what this recipe produces, but the picture looks like "boterkoek". In The Netherlands, we have both "boterkoek" and "botercake". Botercake = pound cake. (A dense, rectangular yellow pound cake, made with butter) Boterkoek = A kind of thick buttery cookie, always round in shape. Very dense. Softer than dutch cookies, little firmer than American cookies usually are. The word 'koek' can mean 'cake' in Dutch (old fashioned), but nowadays almost always means 'cookie'. The word 'cake' is most commonly used in Dutch for pound cakes (the rectangular kind). Large round, frosted cakes like in America are often called "taart" in Dutch, which means "pie". (So used for both round cakes and pies)
