E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
I chose this as my first recipe for baking biscuits--I'm a cook, not a baker! I grated the butter as much as possible and baked them in a cast-iron pan, which produced the crispy bottom I was craving. I had to use non-sodium baking powder due to dietary restrictions, so they didn't rise as much as they might have otherwise, but the texture was very, very nice. I gave the dough a little gloss of oil before putting into the oven so that the tops were as crispy as the bottoms. Served them with coconut-curried butternut squash soup for Christmas Eve dinner. I'll be happy to use this recipe again.

My wife wanted this for dinner and came back with diced instead of crushed tomatoes, but in the end, it doesn't matter. This was easy to do, tremendously tasty, and very cook-friendly. I like the proportions. To the person that suggested more bacon: if you want bacon, just eat bacon. Don't overpower the tomatoes!

Spicy Honey Mustard Pork Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
I think that it's best to sear off a roast before taking it to the oven. I did that with this recipe and the outcome was spectacular. The glaze works perfectly with the combination of temperature and time, and the spiciness suited me and my dinner companions. You will do fine to take the roast to 165F only--it will be much more moist than a 170F roast, and won't be any less safe. (The bad stuff doesn't make it past several minutes at 147F.)

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2006
A completely superior recipe. The pancakes were very fluffy, and the recipe even tolerated the addition of bananas and chocolate chips for my son (in a 1/2 cup portion). Mrs. Can Cook added a teaspoon of vanilla to the recipe (we like that flavor in pancakes) and the results were nothing short of spectacular. They were easy to manage on the griddle, cooked uniformly, and it was far to easy to eat too many. ;)
