Reviewed Irish Soda Bread
"Incredibly moist. Beautiful, crisp crust. Fantastic right out of the oven with butter I used 2 cups organic stone ground whole wheat flour and 2 cups all purpose flour. I didn't have orange zest or currants, so I used candied orange and lemon peel - about 4 tablespoons total - gave the bread a light citrus scent and flavor. I also used my food processor with the large cutting blade (not dough blade) - incorporates the butter well. Was very wet dough. After kneading it only about five times, it formed a nice, lightly flour-dusted round loaf. I baked it on a Silpat mat instead of parchment paper. Turned out great! Would be very easy to make for a dinner party and is sure to impress.
Reviewed Banoffee Mess
"I’ve always wanted to try this technique with sweetened condensed milk. As soon as I saw this dessert on Claire’s show today, I decided today was the day and ran out for the ingredients. Tending to the simmering water level for 3 hours couldn’t be easier, and the pie crust takes minutes to make using a food processor. Toffee and banana are amazing together, and unsweetened fresh whipped cream makes a perfect topping. Once you’ve made your toffee, it’s a quick and easy dessert to assemble. My guy’s resounding “Yum!” and nod of approval said it all.
Reviewed Baked Herbed Polenta
"I made this recently to support my fellow Minnesotan chefs! The morning after baking it, I cut the polenta into triangles and pan fried them to a nice crispy crust. We topped them with poached eggs, and they were a crunchy-cheesy addition to our breakfast. Yum!
Reviewed Beef Stew with Beer Biscuits
"I’ve made the beef stew four times now, and it turns out great every time! It’s very easy to assemble before I start my workday, and it offers a wonderful aroma of home-cooked stew when we get home. I like to use different potatoes each time for a little variety. I prefer sticking to the hot sauce measurement recommended, because it adds that bit of heat while retaining the brightness of the broth. I tried adding more hot sauce (Tabasco) once, as we love spicy foods, and it just wasn’t as flavorful a meal. I definitely recommend doubling the recipe so you have leftovers!
Reviewed Baked Tilapia with Tomato and Basil
"This is a simply delicious recipe, and you can get it onto the table quickly after a workday. I used dried minced onion instead of the onion powder, and they hydrated well during cooking. I also used dried herbs, since I didn't have fresh on-hand. I look forward to using fresh herbs next time!
