Irish Soda Bread

Never having eaten Irish soda bread I don't know how it's supposed to taste but I wanted to try it.  I was looking for something to make with buttermilk and decided to try this recipe. It didn't have the caraway seeds or raisins like some recipes call for but that okay because the complaint i had wasn't about the taste but the hardness of the crust.

Perhaps it was because I cooked it on a pizza stone but the crust was almost inedible. It was hard to cut through and almost impossible to chew. The middle was okay, kind of bland. It was slightly better the next day after it was toasted and slathered in butter but I don't think I'll be trying another for awhile.

Panko-Crusted Fish

I don't like fish. Let's get that out of the way. I don't like it but my parents do. At least fried fish, at restaurants. Instead of a plate full of greasy deep fried fish I was hoping I could find something a little healthier for them. Unfortunately this was not it. They said it didn't have any taste. I used frozen cod, maybe fresh fish would have been better. I guess if you like the looks of it you should try it yourself with the fish of your choice.

I found the recipe Mrs. Sac's Purple Kitchen.
