Serbian Pork and Beef Casserole
I really like beef, pork, sauerkraut, and rice, and I also enjoy trying new recipes. My expectations were modest, mostly due to the lack of seasonings in this casserole (which, according to Wikipedia, is typical for Serbian cooking). But wow. This casserole is amazing! The ingredients themselves provide ample flavor. The only changes I made were cooking it entirely on the stovetop instead of baking it, using a pork chop instead of pork hocks, and using a good-quality chicken stock instead of broth. I'll definitely make this again--in fact, I'm going to get up and do that right now!

Wild Rice and Beef Casserole
I was skeptical of the curry and cheese combination, as many other reviewers mentioned. But they insisted that it was great and should be tried. I really should have gone with my gut on this one--one bite of this was one bite too much. I do like the idea of a casserole that combines beef with wild rice and brown rice, but the flavoring was way off. You gotta think there's a reason that curries topped with cheddar cheese have not taken off in fusion restaurants across the nation.

Gluten-Free White Bread for Bread Machines
I just made this bread for the first time, and it is so good! I do own a bread machine, but so far, I haven't had much luck making gluten-free breads in it, and I decided it would be simpler to make this bread without the machine. I proofed the yeast with the milk and honey, put the rest of the wet ingredients in my mixer and mixed them, then added the yeast mixture and mixed some more. Instead of the flour mix suggested, I just used Domata Living Flour, which is an all-purpose gluten-free mix that already contains xanthan gum. I add the salt to four cups of the Domata flour, mixed with the wet ingredients until just combined, put it in a 9x5 bread pan, smoothed down the top, and baked at 350 for 50 minutes. It turned out beautifully!
