Curried Cream of Cauliflower Soup
About this Cook
Real name Julia, middle name Dawn. I work from home, kids have flown. It's great learning to cook more precise, more gourmet stuff, not the everyday fuel-funnelling into overactive, uncritical young 'uns that only want to leave the table as soon as possible - and yet still manage to be picky.

McIntire's Lamb Stew
A standard slow-cooker lamb stew with the addition of a shot of booze. Hardly original, but the booze does not spoil it - nor does it add that much to it. An edible dish, but not worth MY time to change from my tried and trusted recipe I have been using for years. I emphasise that this reaction is based upon MY taste characteristics. Others may find this good, particularly those who have not had a lamb stew before.

Mexican Shrimp Cocktail
As written, this recipe is good. I personally have a problem usually with canned juices and all the unnatural ingredients that go into them. Also preparing horseradish can produce such different degrees of "heat" that I can't see how this can be the same each time without specifying which prepared horseradish. I made it exactly as written twice - the second time to be certain I hadn't mucked up the first time. I then made it a few more times trying different combinations and not using canned or prepared stuff like ketchup. It was a bit better to MY taste with natural products but I never managed to get a "Wow" taste. Maybe when I have a few more hours to experiment, I will try this again, but so far my 3 hours of trials have not substantially improved it.

Mango, Orange, Grapefruit, Avocado, and Pistachio Salad
Actually I want to give 4.5 stars. It doesn't get the final 1/2 star as I like a bit more bite of chilliness in a salad like this. So this is MY personal taste opinion. This is very good and is the second most popular salady item on the menu in our Café
