Jalapeno Bread II
This was a 4+. The only thing keeping me from giving this a 5-star rating is that it needed more cheese flavor and just a wee bit more salt. However,it is just delicious as is. It came out of the bread machine prettier than any bread we've ever made . The texure was lovely. I'm not as brave as my husband with heat, so we used the Mezzeta brand "tamed" jalapenos in a jar. They appear to be seeded and deveined. They provided just the right kick for me, and the jalapeno flavor really came through. We've been very happy with the results we get with the Gold Medal "Harvest King" bread flour, which is what we used for this.

Pork Chops in White Wine
I never use "cooking wine" as I think that a wine labeled with that title is not of high enough quality to drink by itself. If it doesn't taste good by itself, it won't make your recipe taste good. You don't need to buy anything expensive, just something halfway decent. I used a chardonnay I had at home with tasty results.

Eggnog Quick Bread
Delightful and subtle in flavor. I had to hide it after my son pronounced it "totally awesome." I knew it wouldn't be safe from his ravenous appetite!
