Grilled Pineapple

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2013
I've made this side many times since discovering the recipe. I often substitute a bit of brown sugar for the honey and it makes it caramelize nicely. I've also taken to adding a dash of Chinese five spice to the marinade, it takes it up another notch :)

Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
This brisket was divine finished up in the oven with a brown sugar, vinegar, mustard glaze. I used a whole bottle of Guinness Black Lager, a can of beef broth and about a cup of water. I used the pickling pack that came with the brisket but I also added a bay leaf, a two-inch piece of cinnamon and two cloves. All of that was folded into a paper coffee filter and sealed with a metal twist tie. My crock-pot is small so the brisket had to be cut in half to fit in with the onion. I cooked on high for 3 hours and then added the potatoes and carrots. Those all cooked for two hours on high. I didn't have enough room for the small quartered cabbage so I fished out the brisket and put the cabbage in the crock-pot. The brisket was placed in a roasting pan with two cups of the crock-pot broth and sealed tightly with foil. It was braised for 1 hour at 300degrees. I then removed the brisket from the oven and brushed on the glaze. Oven temperature was increased to 350 and the brisket was baked, uncovered, for an additional 15 minutes. The glaze was simply 1/2 c brown sugar, 1/4 c apple cider vinegar, 1/4 c prepared mustard, 1/2 tsps each of onion powder and garlic powder and 1/4 tsp cinnamon. Bring ingredients to a boil in small saucepan, lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes to thicken. Since my brisket (4.5# total wt) was cut in half to start out with, 5 hours on high and one hour in the oven were perfect. Carrots and potatoes perfect at 2 hours, cabbage for 1 hour.

Spicy Chicken Thai Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
Absolutely delicious! My boyfriend could only say "Oh wow" at first taste. He then started planning our next dinner party:) I used Thai Kitchen brand red curry paste and I have to agree that it was pretty mild. I added 2 Tablespoons of it along with a dash of cayenne pepper. The flavor was spot on even though it had only mild heat. I decreased the fish sauce to 2 Tablespoons thinking that I could add more to taste if needed. But, it didn't need it. I added some thinly sliced mini sweet-pepper rings and a few raw, peeled, deveined shrimp when I added the onions. They were not needed at all but I had them on hand and they sure made the dish looking even more appetizing. I will be making this again. My boyfriend insists.

Naan

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
Very, very good recipe. I had to omit the egg and I used 1 tablespoon melted butter to replace it for the moisture. I didn't have bread flour so I used all-purpose flour but decreased the amount to 3 1/2 cups. I also added 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. I hand flattened the dough rather than rolling and cooked in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. I covered the pan while they cooked for 3 minutes on the first side. I then brushed with melted butter with a dash of garlic salt added, flipped them over and then continued to cook for an additional 2 minutes. They were delicious!
