Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
Best oatmeal cookie recipe! I made two batches so far - one plain and one with white chocolate and dried cranberries. My oven required more than the 8-10 minutes for baking - 12 minutes was just right. I didn't have quick oats and used Old Fashioned Quaker Oats and it came out fine. At first I followed the advice of one of the reviews to only use 2 cups of Old Fashioned Oats but thought the dough was not oatmeal-ey enough so I ended up using the full three cups. Also, I reduced the cinnamon to only one teaspoon and added a dash of ground clove and nutmeg. The only down side is that we can't stop eating them!

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
Lots of room to play. Used beef broth instead of the boullion. Will have to try it with lamb for sure! Added Bobby's recommendations of corn and green beans which came out nice. Would've liked some mushrooms and possibly red beans as well... but that might be too much. We'll see what happens.

Peanut Butter Brownies I

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
Depending on how "nutty" you want them, and if you decide to go with a chunky/extra chunky peanut butter, you can leave out the loose nuts. If you would rather a non-chunky-nutty brownie, add 1/4 cup of creamy PB and substitute 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract for almond extract.

Buttermilk Pound Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
I was in search for the perfect buttermilk pound cake and have been trying many recipes. This one was good but did not make the top of the list. It needed something with it - which if you're planning to serve it with some fruit, ice cream, or chocolaty sauce you should be fine.

Blue Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
I liked it better without the dill (it's just not my flavor...) and put the egg on the side for those watching their cholesterol. Added some walnuts and craisins.

Blue Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms with Grilled Onions

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
These are amazing! Also works very well with green onions and garlic of course. I could eat these by the dozen!

Feta Cheese Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
Try it with blue cheese crumbles! Of course you have to be a blue cheese fan but it is just delicious. I also added green onions.

Hamantashen

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
I liked the dough and appreciated all the good recommendations and comments that helped make this recipe work. It is a very easy recipe - make sure you use a real filling and not jam/jelly for a substitute. Jam will reduce and even run out the sides leaving thin lining of filling. The time in the freezer is a must, even with special attention to pinching the sides into a triangle. You may still have ones that open up in the oven so don't get lazy or be in too much of a hurry. I also recommend brushing them with a beaten egg and then lightly sprinkling them with some ground cinnamon.

Eggplant and Tomato Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
It needs a little something more... and would be much better without the skin.

Butter Pecan Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
These were a hit at school today! I used the sugar instead of flour to flatten the cookies and added 1/2 tsp of vanilla and 1/8 tsp of almond extrat - literally just a few drops. The cookie sheet does not need to be greased - I tried it both ways and liked the final baked shape of the "ungreased" cookies better. Cooled on the cookie sheet for about 10 minutes before moving them to a wire rack to cool all the way.

Caramel Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
Definitely put in the Candy category. This is not a cookie and seems like a fat cousin of a Twix bar on steroids. It was very rich and way too sweet for us. I really liked the caramel and plan to use it for other desserts and pies. I would also suggest using the Williams-Sonoma Scotch Shortbread recipe for those who found the "crust" to be dry and crumbling.

Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
I added 1/4 cup of dried cranberries to apples which brought a really nice flavor to the apples. The crisp topping using walnuts and pecans is delicious and gives you slight variations as you eat it. It's really good. Perfect recipe for making indvidual apple crisps for dessert... or as we found out breakfast!

Mushroom Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
I modified this recipe quite a bit. I used left over garlic mashed potatoes for the crust and used sharp cheddar cheese instead of swiss. I sauted the mushrooms and onions but also added one stalk of celery (finely chopped) and 1/2 cup of chopped sundried tomatoes. I was able to use more mushrooms and more broccoli because they reduced down while in the skillet. I'm really glad I listend to the comments about needing more eggs I ended up using 5 eggs.

Slammin' Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
To make the topping a little more substantial, I added some sliced mushrooms. Sauté them first in a bit of olive oil, garlic, green onions and a bit of salt/seasonings - not from the quantities of the original recipe - and drain the liquid before adding the mushrooms to the salmon as a topping.

Mom's Authentic Kosher Cholent Recipe

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
We thought it was strange not to have to soak the dry beans overnight but it just goes to show that Mom knows best! I added the dry beans after the meat is browned and made sure to mix it up a bit - sure enough, the beans started to shrivel and soften. I've never used pearled barley either but it is very nice and does not need to be substituted. Also, during the preparation, it seemed like there were not enough beans but it really is a nice proportion in the end. Have faith. I did add some baby carrots which worked very well too. We and our shabbat lunch guests loved it. I will certainly make this many more times!

Pepperoni Pizza Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Got rave reviews from my guests even though I made it a "meatless" pizza quiche. I also used milk instead of half & half and it turned out great. I will make this again for sure!

Broccoli Quiche with Mashed Potato Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
My husband and I ate this entire thing in less than 24 hours... it is delicious. Also, I used the crust idea from this recipe to fix-up the quiche in another recipe... made this one with mushrooms and sundried tomatoes as suggested by one of the reviews. Used 6 eggs and had a little left that wouldn't fit in my dish. It is so good.

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Gone in 48 hours! This was a very easy and quick recipe to make. Perfect as a "base" for using up any left over mushrooms or any vegtables. I like to add more cheese on top of the egg.
