Danish Meatballs with Dill Sauce
Even after many mishaps (not reading my directions quite thoroughly enough), these turned out great. Turns out that you can accidentally skip the heavy cream and the meatballs will still turn out fine. I'll try it the right way next time, though. I think also in the interest of cutting down the expense, I might not use all three meats. I'm not sure how this will change the character of the meatballs, though. I followed suggestions to put the breadcrumbs in directly with the meat, which also seemed to work well.

Apple Cider Stew
This was a big hit, and the best thing is that it got better with age. If we had self-control we should've let it sit a day. Oh well. Leftover were awesome. I fudged and used more potatoes than I should have, and added some mushrooms. The way I thought of this recipe was that it was pot roast, plus cider minus the crockpot. And more potatoes for me is always a good thing. But that meant I had to add more liquid -- a bit more cider and a bit more water. I really wasn't sure about the apples in the stew itself, but it turned out perfect. I think some of the amounts seemed small, like the amount of flour needed to coat the meat, or the black pepper. I'm a fresh black pepper fiend, so I made sure to add lots more pepper. Mmm. Tasty. Good counterpoint to the sweet.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
At work, they called these my crack muffins, because they were addictive. And the first one is free, and you can't eat just one. I recommend doubling or tripling the recipe so you can bring some to work or give some away and amaze your friends.
