Pumpkin Roll II

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
This truly is a great recipe. I've never made a roll of any kind, but my husband and I have been using this recipe for 3 years and now we have about a dozen orders a year for pumpkin rolls. The big secret (if you're new to it like I was) is to make sure you beat those eggs the full five minutes and don't start till they are room temperature (about 30 min). That is what gives it the spongy texture that makes it easy to roll. I've never had ONE of these crack. One other hint: I never have cheesecloth and have used several substitutes. One of my favorites (dont' laugh) is to cut up one of my husband's white t-shirts (make sure it's clean!!). This not only works perfectly, but it's a great excuse to get rid of more of his tattered and tacky collection (after his first bite, he usually forgets his sacrifice). I also don't bake the nuts into the cake. I just put it in with the filling. Less chance of error that way. This is a great holiday recipe and people start asking for the pumpkin roll around Halloween. . .that's how good it is.

Sweet and Sour Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
This was pretty good meatloaf. I found the vinegar to be a little overpowering. There was a LOT of sauce. I didn't really like that, but my husband did (certainly kills the need for ketchup). I probably won't use as much sauce (but keep in reserve in case he wants to pour more on) to make it more manageable out of the pan. Overall, it tasted good and was a nice change from the traditional meat-loaf.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2007
The taste was wonderful. My husband hated it. But, then again, he hates fish. I did have trouble with the paste. It didn't want to stay ON the fish. I think I will use the breadcrumb suggestion next time. Still searching for that fish recipe that my hubby will like. . . .
