Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2013
As good as takeout. QUICKER TIP: if using instant dry yeast, it can be mixed immediately into the flour mixture and ten minutes can be saved. Also next time I will double the salt, and if I have time I will let rise once first. Flat beer, I bet, would be an excellent sub for water for a yeasty flavor if otherwise following the recipe.

Gluten-Free Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
Simply amazing, especially since we've been making it DAIRY FREE also!! Using almond milk for milk and beating egg-sugar-mayo very well has made a cake that could pass for regular! WOW!

Slow Cooker Sauerkraut Pork Loin

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
Didn't use or need the broth. I do add plenty of chopped fresh cabbage to stretch the dish and lessen the saltiness, which in the end, is indetectable from the sauerkraut. My family loves this, and so easy.

Sweet Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2012
I skipped the first "sugar bath", just doing the hot pickle plunge, but this was delicious nonetheless. I also left the mini pickles WHOLE. Total success for the super-bland dills I bought on special. Will be using again!

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup with Bacon and Hash Browns

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2012
Excellent combination of ingredients. We used ham instead of bacon, but plan to try with bacon!

Sue's Hot Fudge Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
Very nice. Lowered sugar by 1/2 cup but may use all next time. Added 1/2 cup nonfat DRY milk before boiling to make it taste like Sanders Hot Fudge. May try more cocoa, but that's because I'm always experimenting :)

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
Five stars even for an excellent go-to recipe, even though I reduce the salt to about 1 tsp, and the pepper to 1/2 tsp. (the original amount was too strong for us) then I may add extra to taste. Also the addition of at least a half-tsp. chili powder and, sometimes, a bit of bacon grease for a more authentic flavor.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: May 24, 2012
Cut the sugar in half, but I was using sweetened cinnamon-crunch bagels. A half-tsp of nutmeg was a good addition. Very yummy!

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
Can't get easier! Great texture and set up perfectly after about 15 min baking. However, I miss the eggs flavor and richness in a traditional recipe, so for another recipe I will keep looking...

Mexican Botana Platter

Reviewed: May 9, 2012
Excellent! The cilantro made a lot of difference in the flavor of the meat mixture. The peppers and onions were surprisingly good, but I sprinkled with extra FRESH peppers and onions like our local restaurant was extra YUM!! I also used homemade refried beans and restaurant-purchased fresh chips.

Mujaddara Arabic Lentil Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
SO EASY!! I prepared the rice (brown rice) in my rice cooker WITH the lentils. It worked out perfectly. My 10-cup rice cooker held 4 cups of lentils and 3 cups of rice along with the water specified by the rice cooker. The cumin was too strong for my taste, and since I used only 3/4 tsp. per recipe, I will lower it to 1/4 tsp. per recipe. Added a little cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. allspice per recipe (2 tsp. for my cooker). Also left out salt (heard it toughens lentils) and added to taste later. Like my Syrian grandma, I served with plain (Greek) yogurt atop.

Chicken Jubilee

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
There were mixed reviews on this. I thought it was okay, but some guests raved! (I have to admit I did not use the brandy, though, per some guests' dietary needs). The comments I would note are: the water makes a very soupy sauce- would omit next time. The butter browns the chicken better than oil (I tried both), but in the end you could OMIT either as it make little difference in taste. Also, bone-in breasts are tastier than boneless, and were preferred over the drumstick-thighs I also used. I added a 1/4 tsp. garlic powder, 1 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

Bread Machine Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2012
This is excellent- just like restaurant or delivery pizza crust. We did bake 5 minutes before adding toppings. Will make again!

One Bowl Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2012
Four stars due to high sweetness, but good texture. I melted the butter with the sugar, boiling it briefly, then stirred in the chocolate (I used SIX ounces). Cooled a bit, then added eggs one at a time, then flour with 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp. vanilla (actually 1/4 tsp. ground vanilla bean). Really decadent- just wish they weren't so sweet.

Garlic Bread Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
Loved the butter mixture. If using unsalted butter, add 1/4 tsp salt. And don't overbroil like I did :(

Baked Ziti Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2012
An winner for a crowd. I used a mozzarella/provolone blend which was excellent. Next time I will double the sauce and increase the ricotta. As long as the sauce is a flavorful one (add in spices if necessary), the dish will be perfect. But more sauce is key. And make sure that the pre-cooked noodles are boiled only until tender to avoid a squishy baked product!

Day Before Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
This recipe has incredible possibilities. It is lacking only MILK. I added enough to make the potatoes very light and fluffy, while beating in my KitchenAid. Out of personal preference I now use about double the sour cream, more or less, and NO CREAM CHEESE (I did not like the twice-baked potato taste it gave. I want a mashed-potato taste). Used half white pepper, half black. More butter. Finally, remove from refrigerator at least an hour before baking. Bake 40 min covered, and 20 minutes uncovered. A light sprinkling of white cheddar or Parmesan (or Trader Joe's shredded Quattro Formaggio- YUM!), a bit of melted butter, and paprika ended in a restaurant-quality dish! 2/15/12

Fudge Truffle Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
A very rich cheesecake, chosen for its ease of preparation. The flavor, however, was not intensely chocolate-y, but had some caramel undertones, thanks to the condensed milk. It definitely lends itself to an additional flavor, such as raspberry, orange or maple. Being the experimenting type, I mixed in a drop of maple extract to a bite of cooked cheesecake. ABSOLUTELY excellent and noteworthy. Because of this I will be trying again with a small amount of extract (1/2 to 1 teaspoon? I'll have to taste the batter). Ten stars with a flavor boost =)

Swiss Cashew Tossed Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
Love this recipe. My alterations are less sugar (1/2 cup-more if needed), less oil (1/3 cup), 1 tsp. dry mustard instead of prepared mustard, a heaping tsp. instant minced onion instead of grated- if I am in a hurry, and 1 tsp. salt. TOP WITH red onion slices that have been soaked in water to remove pungency.

Crusty French Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
Didn't care for the flavor. Just okay. Maybe it was my fault.
