Fantastic Black Bean Chili
This recipe made a pretty good chili. I substituted turkey for diced tri-tip (about 2/3 lb), and used 1 can of black, and 1 can of pinto beans. All other quantities remained as stated in the recipe. I like this recipe because it excludes cumin - a favorite of mine, but not shared universally at our house. While I generally prefer a heavier chili (with cumin), this recipe still brings a distinctively chili flavor and is very satisfying.

Beer Biscuits
I've made beer biscuits before, and expected these to turn out much the same - tasty, but very dense. Instead, I prepared these exactly as directed and found them to be much lighter than anticipated. I used a very light beer (Tecate) and absolutely minimized the blending and kneading process. I also used fresh baking powder and baked them for only 12 minutes and did not attempt to brown them. Very good.

Simply the Easiest Beef Brisket
This was very good, I enjoyed it, my wife thought it was fantastic. I intend to use this as the basis for my next brisket, but will think hard about how I can add some complexity into the flavor. Perhaps a careful study of the other reviews will inspire me.
