Christmas Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
I made this Christmas cake last year for my husband who is obsessed with Christmas cake. He (and I) loved it! I used the exact recipe except I used gluten-free all-purpose flour (had no problems with texture or crumbling). I soaked the fruit in brandy for a week, baked the cake around Halloween, and fed it 2 tablespoons of brandy every week. About 2 weeks before Christmas I covered the cake with apricot jam, homemade marzipan, then with homemade sugar paste one week later. My British in-laws tried some when they visited in March and gave rave reviews. I will begin the process again this weekend and plan to make several cakes to give as gifts.

Coconut Curry Cabbage

Reviewed: May 30, 2012
Delicious! I made some slight adjustments: I used 2 tablespoons Indian curry powder and 1 tablespoon regular curry powder (regular curry powder has less heat than Indian curry powder), I put the tomato into the dish when I added the coconut milk, I used 1 can of coconut milk, and I doubled the garlic. My husband is South African and is therefore the curry expert in my house. He thought the recipe was fantastic (but said he would have used 3 tablespoons Indian curry powder). This recipe will be a staple in our house!
