Very Chocolate Ice Cream
Very wonderful chocolate ice cream! Thank you for the recipe. After reading the more helpful reviews we used 3 oz. of chocolate (nothing fancy, just baking chocolate I had on hand) and we added a step of straining the chocolate base after adding eggs and before adding the semi-sweet chocolate to the pan to melt and incorporate. There were some small lumps just from the egg white remnants that were clinging to the yolk when we added them for tempering. We were concerned we hadn't tempered properly, but straining did the trick. The result was fantastic and we will definitely be making this again. We have been making vanilla and variations for a long time but we are happy to now have a go-to recipe for chocolate.

Milk Tart
My homesick S'African sister-in-law from P.E. said the taste was "spot on". She told me the crust was a little thick and not to be afraid to really smash it down when pressing it along the sides and bottom. It did puff up considerably as was mentioned by another reviewer. I am not South African and this was only my second time enjoying melktert and I thought it was wonderful. I know there are 1001 ways to make these with wide variance in crusts across recipes, but I particularly enjoyed the sweetness and crumble of the crust with the creamy custard. 5 stars for a reliable recipe with easy to follow and accurate instructions and a delicious result. Next time I may lightly butter or grease one of the pie plates to see how that goes. It was not impossible to get slices out cleanly, but it took some working at it. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I will definitely make it again when someone special is pining for home.

Irish Soda Bread Cookies
Very good cookie. Didn't change a thing. I beg to differ with the reviewer who said this has a "hint" of sweetness. With 3/4 cup of sugar it's quite a bit sweeter than soda bread. If you have to bake this in batches, be sure to divide and chill dough well wrapped in plastic wrap. It's a little difficult to cut these with the currants, so next time I may try the cookie scoop method and flatten them slightly. Thanks for the idea. Thanks for the recipe.
