Beer Braised Irish Stew and Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
First let me say that ANY stew that gets 5 stars from me is outstanding...I'm NOT a stew lover! Add to that, I'm not a fan of things braised in beer. And that's ALL this is braised in. But boy, we both loved this; did not change the recipe at all. And it will be repeated...in fact I'll probably double the recipe next time so I can freeze it!

Bittersweet Chocolate and Stout Beer Ice Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
It was simple to make, but the texture once you added the beer (I used Guinness) became grainy. Still tasted good, but just didn't like the texture.

Texas Pralines

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
The ingredients in this are correct, but it will take MUCH more time than is posted and you cannot rush it. Also, it makes MUCH more than 2 sheets of aluminum foil on 2 pans will hold...prepare 4. And make sure it is a LARGE sauce pan...the mixture will expand as it bubbles and cooks down somewhat. I agree with one of the other reviewers...240 is the proper temperature, not higher as it continues to cook and will go beyond the caramel stage. But don't attempt this without a candy thermometer or you will either have rock hard pralines or runny ones. They do taste remarkably like Lamme's Pralines!

Classic Whiskey Sour

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
Hadn't had a Whiskey Sour in YEARS! But found this recipe and really liked it. No mixes, just straight sweet/sour and whiskey! It's the real deal!

Tuscan Sausage Ragu

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
This recipe is simply brilliant on a number of levels. I made it exactly as written...questioned why it needed to slow cook since everything WAS cooked before it went into the slow cooker for 5 hours...the taste difference from the start to the finish was incredible...mellowed out considerably. But when you add the cream at the end...oh my. I could really get hooked on this recipe...going to double the batch next time so we have plenty to freeze!

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
Delicious and easy recipe. The only change I made was to remove the pork from the cooking sauce; and refrigerate the sauce until the fat came to the surface and skim it off...our pork shoulder had quite a bit of fat. Then I shredded the pork and added it back to the sauce. Whether this comes out as a "sweet" pulled pork or a smokey one is going to depend on the barbeque sauce you use. My husband felt the one I used was too sweet for his taste so I'll adjust that for the next time...because there will be a next time for this one!

Delicious! We also dipped the rim in Bailey's Irish Creme and then in chocolate sugar!

Chocolate-Filled Crescents

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
VERY easy and perfect as a kiddos project. Be sure to have extra chips on hand if you do let the kids do it because some of the chips will be eaten! I've also used chocolate baking batons (I get mine from King Arthur Flour) instead of chips. And once they are baked and cooled on a rack, I drizzle with a confectioner's sugar icing. Mixing in a touch of Kahlua in the icing makes it a super "adult" version that's perfect with a cup of coffee in front of the fire on Christmas eve.

Classic Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
There are lots of variations on this pie, but this is the classic that our family loves the best. I do add a pinch (1/4 t) Kosher salt to the syrup mixture. I think it brings out the flavor of the nuts better!

Raspberry Peach Crumble

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
Have made this twice...the first time with just peaches and I added walnuts to the topping to give it extra crunch. The second time I substituted blueberries from our backyard (what the bears and the turkeys had left for us!) for the raspberries. Even better. I can't wait to try this with apples!
