Mocha Coffee

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2012
Oh my gosh. I *never* review recipes, even though I use this site all the time. I have to say something about this one, though, simply because it's day 3 and I've found myself unconsciously reaching for the cocoa powder every morning. I rarely drink coffee-pot coffee; I prefer AeroPress or an espresso. However, my roommates make a pot every morning, and there's always a cup or two left when they're done. This recipe is quick, easy, absolutely delicious, and almost as good as making a real mocha with the fuss of the espresso machine and milk steamer. Plus, I don't have to clean all that up. The recipe isn't finicky, in that you can just use a large spoon to guess at 1 Tbls of cocoa instead of pulling out your measuring spoons. I also use 3 cubes of sugar instead of measuring that out. One thing I did change: I use half-and-half instead of milk, because that's in the fridge and no one here drinks milk. I've found that going over 2 tablespoons is fine.... I just fill a cup about 5/8 full of hot coffee, stir the cocoa and sugar into the coffee and make sure they dissolve, and then fill with half-and-half until it turns the creamy colour I'm looking for. Mmmm. Divine.

Frank's Favorite Slow-Cooker Thai Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
Amazing! Usually my attempts at slow cooking are bland failures, but this turned out incredible. The *only* problem I had was that the sauce never thickened... but that easily could have been my fault. It was still delicious over jasmine rice
