Oven Baked Zucchini Fries

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2012
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

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
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

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
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!
