The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2013
Amazing lemon bars. I added the zest of one lemon, plus 1/4 tsp of salt. I couldn't fathom not including them. Anything with lemon juice is elevated to the next level with zest and salt is necessary to enhance depth of flavor. It did not alter the consistency of the batter whatsoever. Oh man, they were yummy.

Honey Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2013
This had the potential to win me over. The absence of salt in the recipe perplexes me as it enhances flavor and counters sweetness. Not a deal-breaker, I added 1/2 tsp of salt. It came out soft and just sweet enough but it was too crumbly for my taste, even after letting it cool. This was absolutely tasty and easy to make, but I will be trying a different recipe next time because I like my cornbread to not turn into breadcrumbs on top of my chili.

No Beans About It - Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2013
I didn't like this. After letting it simmer, it tasted like nothing more than a very acidic pasta sauce. The red wine vinegar was incredibly strong, so much that even the chili powder couldn't shine through. I had to counter it with beef broth, dark brown sugar, a squeeze of honey, Worcestershire sauce, cinnamon, onion powder, cayenne, and extra chili powder and cumin for it to taste like chili. I cook for a man who does not enjoy food that is ultra spicy but he likes some spice, and before doctoring it up he tested it and felt it was too weak and acidic even for him. In the end, it resembled nothing like the original recipe.
