Tangy Pear and Blue Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
I made this for two parties in one day. The first salad I had accidentally bought gorgonzola instead of blue cheese and am happy to report that it worked very well, I got requests for the recipe from people before they left. I saved half of the dressing and made the salad again that day for a dinner party, used the blue cheese called for and again, everyone loved it. I was skeptical about the ketchup, but it worked very well. I would be curious to see how this tastes with the dijon mustard substitution, I think I'll try that next time. The best compliment I got with this salad was "I think I could live off of this!" It was very easy to make and I'll be making it again for sure.

Chesscakes

These were fantastic! I used cherry pie filling for the center and I still get requests to make this again and again!

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
I didn't follow this recipe to the letter, but borrowed some of the basic ideas. I seasoned the inside of the hens with kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper and then stuffed them with the lemon and rosemary and added two cloves of garlic as well. For the outside, I melted a cube of salted butter (I made eight hens, you could probably use less,) and added fresh chopped rosemary, sage and thyme with one clove of crushed garlic. I brushed this mixture under the skin making sure to get a lot of the herbs there to flavor the meat, and then outside of the skin as well. I baked them for approx 90 minutes and VOILA! My guests raved! I served the hens with wild rice with oyster mushrooms and pine nuts, and pan roasted asparagus and homemade peasant bread. It was a lovely meal, and my guests are still talking about it :)

Best Ever Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
To be honest, this was a little hard for me to work with, although to be fair it was a pretty warm day when I made it. I made the dough and put it in the refrigerator and got back to it after about an hour. It rolled out pretty nicely, and I normally do not have a problem taking a crust off of my well floured work surface, but this one would not come up in one piece. I swore this would be the last time I used this recipe UNTIL.... I ate it! WOW, this crust was so good I wanted just a bowlful of crust (the pie was good too, but this crust tasted fantastic!) I think next time if I roll out my crust on parchment paper or wax paper or a silpat or something, it might work better for me, I won't give up on it though, it was just too good!

Italian Bread Using a Bread Machine

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
This bread was easy to make and disappeared quickly. I wanted to use my new stand mixer to knead it, but it's a little too cold here now, so I used the bread machine for the first rising since it's temperature controlled and kept it in a barely warmed oven for the second rising until it was ready to bake. (Make sure you take the loaf out to preheat the oven before baking if you do this.) I made one loaf plain, and the second, I rolled pepperoni and cheese into the dough (cinnamon roll fashion) after taking it out of the machine. Easy and delicious, I'll be using this recipe again.

Basic Crepes

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
This recipe was my first attempt at making crepes, and I'm delighted by how easy they were to make and how simple this recipe is. I filled mine with slightly warmed banana slices and topped it with caramel sauce and chopped toasted pecans. It was such a hit, that I've had requests from my family to make it again this week!

Delicious Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
I cut this recipe in half and put it in my bread machine so that I could leave and come home to yummy pumpkin bread. Wow, it was delicious! I did make two alterations though, I put in a teaspoon of vanilla (for 1/2 the recipe) and I used 1/2 of the white sugar the recipe called for and substituted the other 1/2 with brown sugar. Everyone here just gobbled it up. I definitely plan on making this bread again and again, and maybe adding some raisins, nuts, chopped dates and cranberries. But even without all of the extra goodies, this bread is great.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2007
After several disappointing attempts with different recipes, I think I've found a winner! I followed suggestions from others who've tried this recipe, and added a cup of powdered sugar, one more teaspoon of vanilla and rolled out the cookies on parchment paper using powdered sugar instead of flour. These cookies were AMAZING! They held their shape well, and took only six minutes to bake six jumbo cookies per sheet. I definitely recommend refrigerating the dough until it's firm, and working in small batches while keeping the dough refrigerated. After my cookies were finished I dipped them in white and dark chocolate, although I really think they can stand on their own without decoration at all. I will make these again for sure!

Great Grandad's Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2007
I had high hopes for this recipe when I read the review that compared them as similar to Lofthouse Sugar Cookies. I've been looking for a cookie recipe exactly like that. I have to say that I'm disappointed in this recipe as a sugar cookie. It tasted more like a muffin top, as it had a cake like density. Not quite a cookie, really. Although it was quite delicious, it wasn't what I was looking for.
