I'm sure this idea is not even so original, but that doesn't matter, really. I recommend you try them. Recipe posted here at my other blog--gig!
In other news, I'm working on a book review of My Best Friend Named Chocolate - I mentioned this little book at the beginning of the year. So far I've tried three recipes in it. One dessert and two main course meals. I've got a dessert scheduled to try out Friday when we have guests for dinner - The Elders - missionaries from the Church - it's my charity thing I do to feed these guys once in a while, plus it gives me an extra excuse to bake ;)
And I'm trying out another main course meal next Monday. It's going to be my thing over the next couple weeks to try out some recipes on Monday nights until I feel like I've tried out most of the book.
You know what is really lame, one of my peeves I guess, when you go on Amazon and you read the book reviews and some people give a book like 1 star and they've only tried one or two recipes. I don't think that's fair. I think you should try out at least 50% of the recipes before you can fairly judge it. That's just me I guess. So that is the plan here.
One last item here: Babi Pangang. I mentioned it last week. I made it last Friday night - at least one version of it. It wasn't that bad but it wasn't that good either. So, now from here on out on Friday night we will be eating Babi Pangang. A different recipe every week until we find the one that we like.
So, note to self: do not use that version again... no good. Too sour. And for some reason the pork was very dry. Gotta figure out how they bake it so crispy on the outside and tender inside. Perhaps with the slow cooker?
