Original Irish Cream
Oh my! I'm sitting here sipping this sinful thing trying hard not to chug it. I'm giving it 5 stars even tho I had to change it. I used half heavy cream and the rest was half and half. Only had 1-1/4 cups of Irish whiskey and used amarreto instead of almond extract. Also used a dark chocolate syrup and a decaf instant coffee. I added the instant coffee to the vanilla, amaretto and chocolate syrup and microwaved it for about 15 seconds to dissolve the coffee. Cooled it a bit then added to the blender with everything else. I might up the whiskey the next time. I know I will never buy the original again. I'm having another glass now.

Portobello Pot Pie
The filling was very good with some minor tweaks but like some of the others reported, it came out runny. I added veggie Worcester sauce and a sprinkle of red pepper. I also added a couple of cloves of minced garlic and since I didn't have any sage I used a similar amount of herbes de provence. I used homemade veggie broth and a tablespoon more of rice flour. The gravy was a good consistency in the pan and I hoped it would thicken up more when baking but it didn't. So it looked very nice until cutting it when it fell apart. But it would make a very good stew by adding some peas or other veggies.

Delightful Indian Coconut Vegetarian Curry in the Slow Cooker
Good enough to make again. I used 3 unpeeled russet potatoes and one large sweet potato. Added about a tbsp of cumin to the spice mix. Added 1/2 each of green and red pepper, 3 cloves of chopped garlic, onion soup mix, chopped Vidalia onion and 2 cans of coconut milk. After a couple of hours in the crockpot I added about a cup of cauliflower, the carrots and about a cup of homemade veggie broth. After another hour I added the peas and about a cup of salted cashews. All in all it took about 5 hours in the crockpot. Actually I think you could add all ingredients at the start and let it go. Because of the added ingredients, I would add a bit more curry but keep the rest of the spices the same.
