Pastitsio II
Overall, quite tasty, but there are some alterations I would make to this recipe in the future. I found the dish to be lacking the nutmeg flavor, and using freshly grated nutmeg makes quite the difference. Additionally, the meat sauce was lacking in flavor and was more liquid-y than I was expecting. In the future, I would add additional tomato paste. Freshly grated pepper at the end is a good addition as well as freshly grated nutmeg, as cooking decreases the intensity of the spice flavor.

Curried Coconut Chicken
followed recipe exactly, except cooked oil with curry powder and onions longer than suggested (about 5 min with curry power alone and 15 min with add'n of onions, as another reviewer suggested), and added tomatoes immediately after, before chicken. used 3 fresh tomatoes instead of canned. it was delicious. will make again. Went well with rice I flavored with cardamom and turmeric (see recipe for saffron rice, but feel free to experiment with spices and flavors you like). and naan bread.

All-Day Apple Butter
loved the recipe. replaced the reccommended 4 c. sugar with 1 c. sugar and 1/2 c. honey. found this to be sweet enough. also probably used at least 3 tbs cinnamon. and added a tsp. each of allspice and nutmeg. took about 5 more hours than suggested in croc pot. finished on high instead of low. boiled jars in water to can after making, instead of refrigerating.
