Sourdough Starter I

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2013
This is a really good starter, but like with anything that is fermenting, you cannot seal it up tight, ever... One of the byproducts of fermenting is carbon dioxide, which occurs with, wine, beer, sauerkraut, yogurt (slightly), kefir, starters using flour, and so on. While not due to any fermenting, the bubbles in soda are the same carbon dioxide. Get the book "Wild Fermentation" for more information on fermenting. Great book.

Caramel Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2013
Very good. The safest way to make caramel from swc in the can is to put the can(s) in your crockpot, Add enough water to cover the can(s) by an inch,then cook on LOW for 8 hours. No danger of water running too low and having to repaint the kitchen.

Ginger Liqueur

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2012
This is not a liqueur in any sense of the word, simply ginger and brandy flavored sweetener. I don't blend the ginger after slicing it, but put it in a jar with the brandy, orange juice, and vanilla. I steep it for a 3-4 weeks , then strain the solids out. Place back in the rinsed out jar. I then make a syrup with the water and sugar, cool it completely, and add to the jar. Stir, and age at least a month.

Baptist Grasshopper Pie

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
Not bad at all, and will make again. Oh, there is alcohol in it - the two extracts are made with it, and they aren't cooked in this recipe which would cause the alcohol to burn out.

Maple Liqueur

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
This one is good. I've made honey liqueur like this, using brandy vs rye, and this tastes a lot like mead (honey wine). Brandy would also go nicely with the maple syrup. Warm the maple syrup a bit and it will mix in quicker.

Slow Cooker Collard Greens

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
I've never cooked greens before, so didn't realize there the recipe didn't have any liquid added to the slow cooker. I never realized this until I came home to find my slow cooker too hot to touch -on LOW! - and the greens cooked completely dry. I will make this again, but next time I will add some water or even some chicken stock, two or three cups worth.

The Real Mojito

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
Love these things! Sugar syrup is a great idea, and you can make it a good while ahead since sugar is a natural preservative. The idea of less soda and more rum is one fine idea ;) @nance m - Splenda has the sweetness of sugar, but it doesn't have the physical characteristics of sugar, so you can't make a simple syrup using it. I know, I tried that making homemade liqueurs with Splenda, and it just doesn't do.

Tandoori Fish

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2009
I had a dish very much like this at a Taste of Atlanta many years ago. I've wanted a recipe for it ever since then, and here it is! Buying the few items I need tomorrow, and will be enjoying it in the evening.

Polish Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2009
I really like this soup which is not only very easy to make, it also hits the spot quite superbly. And, I certainly use my own chicken stock instead of water, just like my ol' Granny did many years ago.
