Bada Bing Bada Banged Potatoes
Four and a half stars. I made life a little easier by putting the olive oil and butter in a glass bowl, with 3 cloves diced garlic for flavor, and nuking until melted. Then I gently lifted the smashed potatoes with a slotted spatula and dipped them in this mixture. Once on the lined and greased tray, I added the mixture of spices (good mix, only added fresh thyme as I happened to have some on hand). I made these ahead for tonight's dinner, so I haven't yet tasted them (they smell divine), but I can tell they will be great. Thanks for a great recipe, CJ.

Tangy Mustard
WOW! I barely know where to start...thanks to Can_it_Rachael's review and rave in the buzz, I knew I would try this recipe. Try as I might, I simply could not find ANY of the type of mustard seed this recipe calls for, but since I was too impatient to order online, I used simply "mustard seed" from my bulk store, and "hot mustard powder" to replace the Oriental seed (as I gather they are the spicier of the three). The taste is simply incredible, and like Rachael, I couldn't wait two weeks to try it! I doubled the recipe, and got perfectly enough to fill three 500 ml wide mouth jars. I used 1 tsp of "hot mustard powder" for the doubled recipe, and got a very noticeable ZING (no complaints here!), but for those that prefer a milder mustard (and couldn't find the original mustard seeds called for and must substitute) they may want to start with 1/2 or even 1/4. I am so thrilled with how this turned out that I too, will never purchase a grainy mustard again! Thanks so much, I am so pleased! Update: This tasted spicier at first, now after maturing, it is more mellow...still 'tangy' but not hot. So, next time I won't reduce the hot mustard powder, and may even add more!

Sausage, Spinach and Ricotta Calzone
Oh my...where to start. First, I'll say that without the many technical errors, this might have been a great recipe. In no way possible did the recipe for the crust make enough for four calzones. I got two, but with one cup of flour (the other 1/2 cup in recipe is for kneading) I should have known. Because of this, I had wayyy to much fillings. I had to throw out almost half of the sausage mix and more than half of the cheeses mix. What a waste! I also had to scramble to figure out what to do, since we are a family of four and I have only two calzones! I had to order a pizza and after all that work I feel a bit frazzled....Sorry, but this recipe just doesn't work as is. I have the two in the oven now for another day....hope they reheat well!
