Grandma's Egg Custard Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2010
My only complaint is that the texture wasn't a thick(firm?) as I would have liked. I have a feeling this may have something to do with the fat-free milk I had to use. I bake my pies on a baking sheet that sits on a pizza stone so I didn't brush my crust with an egg white, but I did add an extra egg yolk to the custard. I also used vanilla sugar and added some cinnamon with the nutmeg. It smells delicious, and the taste is perfect. A hint of creamy egg flavor, and a nice sweetness from the vanilla and spices.

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
Amazing! I have been a little unlucky with pie crusts in the past, and I even messed up again the first time I tried this recipe. After tossing out the first crust(too much water, then too much flour) I read a lot of the tips in the comments and tried again. I doubled the recipe, weighed the flour(personal preference), diced the butter into small pieces which I froze for a bit, and kept the water in the freezer until I saw ice crystals. I used my fingertips to rub in the butter(I have a light touch and slightly cold hands), and only used about half of the water. It ended up sitting in my fridge for 2 days and it was absolutely wonderful when I was rolling it out. I used this to make a cherry pie and it was delicious and very flaky.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
Delicious! I substitued flax seeds for the eggs(it was my first time using them), added some chopped walnuts and sprinkled a little brown sugar on the top before baking. It baked for an hour at 350 degrees, and then I turned it down to 325 and covered it was some foil(I didn't want it to brown too much) to bake until it was done. I sliced into it the next morning, and it was so moist! I also enjoyed that there weren't any spices to get in the way of the banana flavor.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
I used this recipe to make rainbow cupcakes for my sister. They were delicious! I let the butter, milk, and eggs get to room temperature and I made sure to really cream together the butter and sugar, so the texture was like coolwhip. I also sifted the flour and baking powder together, added an extra 1/4 cup of milk, and made sure to beat the eggs in well. The batter was light and fluffy, and the cupcakes were sooo moist. Great recipe!

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
This was a delicious and simple recipe to cook in my new dutch oven! I put in about 2 tablespoons of fresh dill in place of the dried and substituted the half and half with sour cream because I didn't have either ingredient. I also cut the salt in half to suit my taste.

Kalacs (Hungarian Cinnamon Swirl Bread)

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
This is a wonderful recipe! I cut it in half so I only made one loaf. I decided to proof my yeast for 10 minutes in the warm milk with the sugar, and it is a good thing I did that because my first pack was dead! I added the egg, vanilla, and (unsalted)butter to that, and then mixed in the flour and salt. I don't like to use a mixer when I'm only making one loaf so I kneaded my dough by hand, but besides that I followed the rest of the directions and it was done in exactly 30 minutes. I waited for it to cool and it sliced beautifully. I will be making this again!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
These were great! They were so easy to make and were exactly what I was craving tonight. I didn't make any changes to the ingredients but I did whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder in a separate bowl before adding them. I didn't want to overcook them at all, so I checked them at 15 min and they were actually done(the way I like them) at 20 min. I also didn't make the frosting. I just sprinkled chopped white chocolate chips on the batter before baking.

Honey White Loaves

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
Very nice and I enjoy the flavor. My sister has already eaten about half of it! This was my first time making bread, and my third time working with dough(and the first two really weren't so good). I liked that it was simple to make and it smelled great as it was baking. EDIT:I cut this recipe in half and made it again, but instead of using a pan I shaped it into a large oval and put a few slices in the top for decoration. I greased a baking sheet, and spinkled a little cornmeal on the pan, which keeps it from sticking. It rose wonderfully in the oven, the texture was great, and it had a nice brown crust.

Simple Baked Apples

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
I made this for my family this morning and it was delicious! I added a little vanilla to the milk, a little extra cinnamon and some brown sugar. Also, I didn't have any raisins but I had a box of Raisin-Almond Trail Mix cereal so I sprinkled that on it as well and covered it with aluminum foil. It had a great flavor and the cereal added a nice little crunch to it. :)

Homemade Banana Pudding Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
I only made the pudding itself because my sister didn't want the pie crust or meringue. We followed the recipes exactly and it was delicious! A little too sweet for my mom though. I layered everything right after I took it off the stove and then put it in the fridge overnight. The flavor of the bananas came out really well and the wafers seemed to 'melt' into the pudding(which I like so I can mix it all up). I will definitely be keeping this recipe. :)

Coconut Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
Absolutely delicious! I made this for my sister and me and we both loved it. We used the Sriracha chili sauce(with the rooster on it) and it was nice and spicy. The flavors were great and I loved the smell of it. I used firm tofu and pressed it for 15 minutes, then fried it with some oil, curry powder, and ginger in a pan before I added it. It was still a little soft but it didn't fall apart at all. I also added a whole vidalia onion and cut back just a little on the bok choy and green onion. I'm definitely saving this recipe to make again.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
Made these for Mother's day and she LOVED them! I didn't have raspberry so I used strawberry jam. I reduced the temp. a little and none of them spilled over. About halfway through I addd a tiny bit more jam to each, then smoothed it out. When they were done I drizzled a vanilla glaze on half and a chocolate glaze on the others. They came out perfect. :)

Creamy Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
Absolutely delicious! I cut the recipe in half to make one loaf, but I guess I could've just kept it since apparently I have a very large bread pan. My sister nearly devoured the whole thing in a day! Will definitely keep this recipe.

Crisp Lemon Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
I made them with my younger sister and they turned out great. I used all butter because I didn't have any shortening. They were easy and I'll definitely make them again!
