Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread
I've tried this twice. The first time was exactly as written and directed and it came out fine, though I thought it was too crumbly and didn't think it would hold together. It did tend to fall apart while cutting and while trying to put butter on it, but it still tasted fine. My husband declared it the best bread he's had in years. Also, the cooking time is WAY off. Not sure who was able to get it done in 30-45 minutes. Mine took well over an hour before it was a lovely crusty color on the outside and done on the inside. I did continue to baste the butter/buttermilk mixture onto the bread every 15 minutes or so. Keep in mind that if you continue to baste then you'll probably get a burnt crust around the bottom edge of the bread where it drips down. My husband called it "caramelization", god bless him. I also added a sprinkle of turbinado sugar ("Sugar in the Raw") to the top to add some extra crunch. The 2nd time I made it I also used the KitchenAid stand mixer which really assists with making it easier and less messy to prepare. I also added an extra 1/2 an egg, which I thought would help hold it all together better. That worked but it changed the color to a slightly more yellow color from the bready white I had before. No matter because in both cases (even with the "caramelization" on the bottom) the bread disappeared before I knew what hit me. Definitely a keeper!

Asian Coconut Rice
I followed the directions exactly, because it's pretty much the same way I make my perfect rice: Mix rice and water, bring to boil, give it a stir, cover it, let it be for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes this was just a gloppy mess with crunchy rice. I guess the coconut milk doesn't allow the rice to cook.

Hawaiian Coleslaw
I'm not really a big fan of cole slaw in general so the addition of these extras (mandarin oranges, pineapple, ginger, and nutmeg) sounded like a good version that was perfect for a luau themed pot luck coming up. However I must really be used to the taste of ginger and nutmeg because I could barely taste either one! But overall it was a good version of cole slaw that disappeared quickly and I would definitely make it again. The oranges and pineapple are really what makes it special. I used a bag of pre-shredded cole slaw mix, which I highly recommend doing, unless you enjoy the act of shredding cabbage. I also added about a tablespoon more mayo than the recipe calls for since it seemed a tad lacking when I mixed it up at first. Next time I'll use a touch more ginger and nutmeg too.
