Oven Baked Zucchini Fries
Completely unimpressed. The flavor was okay. The zucchini was soggy, even though I followed the directions exactly and baked until the crumb coating itself was crispy. I'll find another way to cook zucchini.

Refried Beans Without the Refry
I've been trying to make refried beans that had some flavor, and these really do the job! I made a couple of small changes: doubled the jalapeno, and increased the cumin to 1 tsp. Next time I will decrease the salt by at least a teaspoon, as my family agreed it was too salty for our tastes. I made a full batch of this recipe and put away leftovers in the freezer, where they kept very well. I'll never buy canned refritos again. Thanks for a great recipe!

Black Lung Braised Brisket
This brisket met with approval when I served it to family and a guest. The meat was tender and tasty and the pan juices made a nice addition on the plate. I had hoped for a little more flavor in the center of the meat, so I sliced the leftovers and sealed them up in a container with the juices poured over the top. The next day, the flavor was a lot more consistent. Next time I make this, I will seal the marinated meat and the marinade in heavy foil, place in a roaster, and bake at 350 for about 4 hours, as I do with another brisket recipe, in hopes of working the flavor deeper into the meat. We will be trying this again - it's well worth the experimenting time!
