Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce
Very tasty! I added a bit more vinegar and chili to give it some added oomph, and I cut the sugar by 1/3. (It was still VERY sweet--I may halve it next time.) It goes very well with pot roast/brisket, as the thick texture of the sauce helps complement the texture of the meat.

Coconut Curry Tofu
Oh, man. This is just what the doctor ordered, especially on a cold day! Only change I made was to keep an extra can of coconut milk on hand, as there did not seem to be enough liquid. If you aren't vegetarian, I'd also add a little fish sauce ("nam pla" is the proper term) for flavor. If you're into a zippier curry, adding some Sriracha also does wonders. (This recipe is very tasty as is, though.)

Buttery Soft Pretzels
Pretty good, and a lot more economical than mall pretzels! It takes some practice to roll them properly, as the dough contracts considerably while baking. Note: as the recipe stands, these hve no butter flavor. As per previous reviewer, I substituted butter for the oil, but the favor was still quite subtle. Perhaps next time I'll add 2 tbsp, or do a butter wash before baking.
