Sour Cream Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
I LOVE this recipe and have made it several times in the past two weeks. I do have a few suggestions. First, I don't mix the filling ingredients. I sprinkle the walnuts, then most of the sugar, then most of the cinnamon. I DO measure the sugar--if I were doing it by eye I would never add enough! (I put only the remaining sugar and cinnamon on top). To smooth the first layer of cake on the bottom I make sure to wet my hands. For the second layer of cake I actually take hand-fuls of batter and flatten them in my wet hands before laying them out. It is quite easy to join these pieces together. Don't worry if you don't reach the edges of your baking dish--this cake expands tremendously while baking. I love it!

Cream of Chicken and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
I skipped the chives, parsley and garlic powder and I used margarine and whole wheat flour (instead of the called-for ingredients) because of what I had in the house. I also used the meat from pre-cooked chicken leg quarters, and I believe this gave the soup more flavor. I also brought it to a low boil before simmering, thinking I was supposed to do that. I pack this in my daughter's thermos for lunch at school and she loves it! Cook it on a Sunday night and you have enough for a few days! We love it!

Matzo Brei

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
I soak the matzo pieces in cold milk for at least five minutes (rather than water). I leave out the pepper and fry it in butter, too. With sugar on top it is delicious!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
I did something fun for Christmas that others may want to try: split the dough into two parts. To one part add about six crushed candy canes. (I put them in a freezer bag, wrapped this in a light towel and hammered away!) I added some red food coloring as well. Roll out each dough. Place one sheet on top of the other. I had the red, candy cane dough on the bottom. Roll the two doughs together to make a long roll or tube. Press the dough now, to get out any air. This will cause the roll to lengthen a bit which is fine. Using a bread knife, cut this into cookie slices, place on tin foil and bake as above. (I seemed to need some more time--about ten minutes). It is easiest to just let the cookies cool on the foil, using a fresh sheet for each batch. It makes the prettiest swirl cookies--perfect for Santa!
