Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry with Whole Grain Brown Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2013
I was looking for an easy beef and broccoli stir fry, with not too many extra fancy ingredients. That's why I saved this one. But I have to say it lacked soooo much flavor!!! I added a teaspoon of Knorr vegetable bouillon, more soy sauce and a bit pepper. It came out good but only after seasoning it. Since my husband doesn't eat broccoli I set some beef aside and used orange and green bell pepper instead. It was just as good, again with my additional seasoning. Will definitely do it again but not according to the original recipe posted here.

Authentic German Bread (Bauernbrot)

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2013
I too have been on a quest to find good German bread here in the US. I have been to specialty stores, international food stores but none of them had the bread I was looking for. It was close sometimes but it was not what I was used to from Germany. So I tried this recipe. I have to admit I was a little bit scared since it was the first time making bread for me. Also the huge amount scared me a little too since I didn't want to throw everything away should it go wrong. So I only took a quarter of the amounts stated above, also because no one else will eat the bread since my husband is a soft white bread lover. I was not sure about the texture of the dough either but I just kept going according to the recipe and I have to say it turned out wonderful. I had to cut off a slice before it was even cool. The crust was so delicious. When the dough got too stiff while kneading I just wet my hands. That was enough to soften it up again. I also put a bunch of sunflower seeds in it since I always loved grains in bread. I also used highly active dry yeast because I couldn't find any fresh yeast. Used the conversion that one of the users suggested in the reviews. Next time I will try and bake it in a loaf pan. I already used it to shape the bread and my mom always baked bread in one of these.
