Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
Although the cookies turned out okay, I was rather disappointed by this recipe. The dough was far too sticky after 1.5 hours of chill and I could not even cut out any shapes. I followed another reviewer's suggestion and substituted brown sugar for white sugar (3/4c) and the cookies were on the sweet side. I don't think I'll be using this recipe again.

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
Not a bad recipe, especially with the buttercotch mix and omitting of sticky molasses. Initially, after combining both the dry and moist mixture, the dough was VERY DRY. DO NOT GET DISHEARTENED!! Keep rolling the dough around--I had to get into it with my hand and finally it started to come together. I only refrigerated for about fifteen minutes in the coldest part of my fridge (I wouldn't hesitate to put it in the freezer for about ten minutes either) before rolling it out. I also noticed some red streaks in the dough; anybody else?? Not sure why.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
Absolutely scrumptious!! Prep for me took awhile chopping all the veggies up, but it was soo worth it! Instead of water, I used chicken broth and omitted adding any salt. I also added balsamic vinegar as others suggested, but I found that the base flavor was good enough on its own so only put 1/2 a tablespoon. Next time, I may even add some green beans and more broth as I do like it to be less thick.

Mussels Mariniere

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2007
Very delicious and easy recipe. I omitted the bay leaf and onions since I didn't have any on hand. I also used the freshly packed and already cooked mussels from Trader Joe's (cheap, and saves a lot of time!) adding the mussels liquid to the white wine. Toast some sliced baguette to dip, and voila, great appetizer.

Sour Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2007
This is such an easy & quick cake to make!! My boyfriend jumped in the shower, and by the time he came out, it was already in the oven ready to surprise him. I did follow other reviews and used one cup of sugar,just two eggs, and a teaspoon of vanilla extract, but did something different myself. Instead of one cup of regular sour cream, I used a light sour cream and the result was a light, but yummy pound cake. There isn't much of a rise to the cake, but it still remains moist and soft on the inside. I baked it at 350degrees for about 55 minutes, periodically checking on it after 45 minutes to desired browning. Very good! Great alone, or with fresh fruit.

Hash Brown Casserole II

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2007
Simple and delicious!! What more can I say? I am not a chef, but this I can definitely cook. I only use butter to sautee the cornflakes, light sour cream, and fat free cream of chicken. Also, I only use half of the recipe--it fills up a full 9x13 pyrex casserole dish & feeds a lot of people. I now have the perfect item to bring to BBQs and for potlucks; effortless too!
