Slow-Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage
The slow cooker is the only way to go for corned beef as far as I am concerned, but putting the vegetables in the pot with the meat made everything taste too much alike. Absolutely no contrast in flavors! The beer was an awesome way to reduce the saltiness you can get with corned beef but it lent an odd flavor to the cabbage and potatoes. I think next time I would use the beer and water and cook only the meat in the slow cooker. The potatoes and cabbage can go back on the stove with little effort and a better variety of flavors in the meal. I'm not one for cooked carrots anyway!

Irish Soda Bread
This was a great launching point for the soda bread recipe of my dreams. The result was much more moist and tender than most soda breads I've tasted so that was a big plus. I think three cups of raisins was overdoing it, so I used two but it was still heavier on the raisins than I like. The full tablespoon of flour dusted on the top was also too excessive since it never really dissolved into the dough as much as pictured. I ended up with lots of raw flour on top. Next time I think I will reduce the raisin content to a more typical one to one and a half cups, grease AND flour the pan for a crustier bottom, and either reduce or eliminate dusting the top with flour.
