Mr. Smoky's Chipotle-Mustard Hot Sauce

A friend of mine gave me some piri piri peppers that I used with this recipe in lieu of some of the guajillos. Very spicy and tasty. The mustard seed really shines in this.

Things That Are Hard to Find in the Grocery Store

Pectin for canning send me on a wild goose chase a few years back. That and ladyfingers. I almost had to order them online.

What's the Deal with Ceramic Knives?

I have a ceramic knife that I love. I mostly use it for fine chopping and mincing though. Steel is better for every other use, but there's nothing like a nice, super sharp ceramic blade for finer cuts on veggies. It does stink that it doesn't work with my knife magnet, but I bought a little IKEA thing that works great.

Strawberry-Cranberry Charlotte Russe

Made this for a Christmas get together. Everyone was so impressed with the presentation and I was happy that I could make a dessert that looked this good. However, no one was a fan of the all-creamy texture. The booze-soaked ladyfingers helped, but the amount of Bavarian cream overwhelmed whatever they brought to the table. Good, but I'm moving on to other cakes...

Savoy Cabbage Soup with Buckwheat Dumplings

Made this for my German husband who loved it! I'm a veggie, so I omitted the bacon, but it was a hit.

CHOW Veggie Burger

Made these a few times. They're delicious but let's face it: making these burgers is like having a second job. Please Chow, try again with something that is less like a project and more like something I can make when I'm home from work.

Hangover Helpers

I agree with onefaller. B-complex and a glass of water right before bed and you'll feel less queasy and weird the next day.

Spicy Skillet Cornbread

I like the recipe, but it was too salty. I think next time I'll make it with only 1 teaspoon salt.
