Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
A reviewer warns against salting beans until the end of cooking. This is wrong. Even the soaking water should be salted. Scroll down to the relevant part of this excellent article

Fusion Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
GREAT--zesty, interesting, unusual--chili! The reviews are so impressive that I tried to follow the recipe closely as possible, though toward the end I started taking some reviewers' suggestions. *I hate fennel's anise-y flavor so I used a lb. of Gaspar's Hot Chourico and a lb. of the good pork breakfast sausage my butcher makes. (Five lbs. meat total; 6 lbs. is too much, IMO.) *I had only yellow onions, so used three med. ones. *I had only one sad little stalk of celery so I added a cup of froz. chopped green peppers and 6 oz. chopped canned green chiles. *Was doubtful re:carrots in chili, but grated in a scant cup. Undetectable, really, & healthy. *I can't even remember how much additional liquid I added; as written, the chili (even leaving out a lb. of the sausage) is more a fork-food than a stew. I added 2 cans beef broth, 2 cans chix broth, ~a cup of strong coffee (great suggestion!) *I worried about the honey, but the sweetness is subtle and interesting. Next time, though, I might try 1/3 cup instead of 1/2. *For the hot sauce I used mostly Chipotle Tabasco, the rest reg. Tabasco. *Same w/the chili powder; mostly Penzey's ground Chipotle, the rest chili powder. *When it was nearly done I thought it needed a little more chile flavor, so I added 2 more tsps. cumin, dash of Mex. oregano, Tbsp. of Penzey's dry Adobo seasoning. It's an artful blend of flavors. I'm a native Texan and like my chili authentic, but this is lovely. My compliments to the chef!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
Throw away all your other banana bread (OR BANANA CAKE) recipes! This is the only one you'll ever want. I've made this a dozen times and it's always perfect. The only slight change I make is to add another small banana and smash the bananas w/a potato masher instead of slicing them. I make the recipe into bundt cake size by adding add half-again the amt. to each ingredient. (1.5 cups sugar instead of 1 cup, 3 eggs instead of 2, etc.) I've frosted it on occasion but it really doesn't need anything but maybe a dusting of confectioner's sugar. Perfect, perfect, incomparable recipe. (I've used both pecans & walnuts; love both. And I always toast my nuts lightly for all baked goods.)
