Christmas Eve Beef Stew
OK, I gave this five stars, but I did make some additions. I know how some of you frown on rating a recipe that you've modified. First I substituted venison for the beef. I did not per-cook or brown it, although I may the next time. In addition to the frozen peas, I added frozen corn and frozen beans. I didn't thaw any of these, just popped them into the mix. My wife got me pearl tapioca and I didn't know what to make of that, but I just added the same amount. After cooking a while (crock pot) it seemed quite thick so I added a can of Campbell's beef consumee and a can of water. This thinned it out to more of a stew than like the pudding it was. Like any recipe I think one has to be able to adjust it to their way of cooking and tastes. I made this the night before and then kept it overnight in our garage which was at about 50deg F. We served it the next day (Christmas) along with Butternut Squash Chepotlie Bisque and it was great. I'll definately make this again.

Baked Denver Omelet
I've been making something like this for years. Sometimes we bake it and sometimes we cook it up in a pan and scramble it all up like scrambled eggs. Then we call it Scrambola. Try adding a little beer in place of the milk (the alcohol cook off). The variations of this are endless. Try different cheeses, meats, and beers to vary the taste. Yummmmmmmmmm.

Cinnamon Raisin Bread I
I only gave this a four, but not because it's not good bread, just because I had to tweek it to get the results I wanted. Ok, I cheated. First of all I didn't want 3 loaves, so I changed the "servings" from 36 as listed to 24, so I acutally made 2/3 of a recipie. I followed the recipe exept that I used 3 teaspoons of Active DryYeast instead of the Breadmaker Yeast I use in my machine. I also added 1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon to the dough and increased the raisins to 1 cup. I put it in my bread maker (Panasonic SD-RD250) on "basic dough" and it rose so much that it hit the lid of the machine. I poured it out onto a bakeing mat, rolled it out and added the sugar/cinnamon mix and rolled it up. This amount of dough made three nice loaves in 5x9 pans, so if you make the full recipie you could easaly get four loaves or more from it. I baked fo 30 minutes as recomended by others and I now have three nice light perfectly done loaves of bread. I noticed that some of the photos showed bread that was flat and heavy. I think that might be due to trying to make too few loaves and not letting it rise enough.
