So WG put out a statement that seems to put the SirFoch brouhaha to rest: http://forum.worldof...#entry11007272. It's fine, but the only reason that the controversy had legs is because of the underlying tank-balance problems and the pay-to-win direction of the game.

well, threatening the livelihood of your main source of advertising probably contributed a little also. But yeah, the premiums are getting silly.

I usually just visit the WoT forums but have recently been exploring the site a bit more. I have a facebook album that chronicles my cooking efforts which I started after my parents gave me The America's Test Kitchen Quick Family Cookbook, and I thought I would start a thread here as well. I'll begin with some of my more successful efforts. The first recipe I attempted was Spaghetti with Pesto Meatballs (ATK) from the America's Test Kitchen book. The cooking went pretty well and only one meatball fell apart. I enjoyed the recipe but the sauce was a little too chunky for my taste.

Rustic Chicken Tart with Spinach and Brie (ATK)
Got fancy with this recipe. The tart was good but eating the brie rind was a bit weird, too chewy.

Spinach and Bacon Phyllo Cups (ATK)
These were time consuming but very good, i.e. bacon. Its not easy to find phyllo cups in North Dakota.

Tricolored Goat Cheese Terrine (ATK)
This recipe went surprisingly well as I'm not really familiar with using goat cheese or making a terrine. The layering could use some work. Tasted great and was much larger then I expected. From now on I will only serve the finest of terrines.

Tequila and Lime Turkey Chili (ATK)
I'm not a fan of conventional chili so this lighter and less spicy version appealed to me. When cooking with alcohol I think the appropriate proportions are one for the food and two for the cook. Chili was very tasty and served with lime wedges, avocado, and scallions.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken (Allrecipes)
Okay, this is a more recent recipe (note the No Shave November beard) and from here on out I will try and update the thread as new recipes are attempted. This recipe was super easy and I cubed the chicken instead of shredding it. The most time consuming part was chopping the fresh cilantro. I would definitely make this recipe again.

I've actually wanted to get their "Complete Book" that has all their recipes from inception through the 2015 season. That stuff looks absolutely delicious!

Their books are really good, lots of useful info. My only complaint is that they often use some rather obscure ingredients that are difficult to find where I live.

Pasta e Fagioli Soup (The Country Cook)
The soup turned out well, I think it is based off of a soup available at Olive Garden. Probably added too much pasta as I didn't check the recipe and just put in the whole box I bought, still good though.

Kumla (Family recipe)
Kumla is a Scandinavian dish that my family makes on special occasions. It is essentially potato dumplings that are boiled in ham stock. We eat them with lots of butter and salt. Most people who didn't grow up with it don't like kumla; but its not as weird as some other Scandinavian food, such as lutefisk. The photos are from Thanksgiving and we'll be making kumla again on Xmas.
