Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2007
This was my first time making pizza! It was great! Since I am originally from New York, I made mine New York style and thinned that crust! Wow! The recipe made two pizza's. I let my fingers do the talking and added flour slowly as I kneaded/needed. However, I need a pizza stone because the bottom of the pizza crust did not brown to my taste. The recipe itself was a great success.

French Country Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
Lots of fun to make! Although this was my first time making bread by following the instructions I was able to make great tasting bread. I added a tablespoon of sugar, more salt. Just before cooking I lightly covered the tops with the mixture of an egg yolk (+ 1tablespoon water) to get a crunchy crust. In addition, instead of 1/2 wheat I used 2 cups white whole wheat flour that I made on a VitaMix blender. Because of the wheat it came out tighter but great tasting and looking. Pictures will be uploaded. My picky hubby and kids all loved it!

Hamantashen II

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2007
The taste of the dough is great. I cooled it in the frige for about an hour. I followed the instructions and used 1 tablespoon preserves: apricot for some, strawberry for others. The first batch came out awful because 1 tablespoon of preserves is too much, it boiled and ran out. I tried different amounts and settled on 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon. the kids in my daughter's class loved them and asked for seconds. I will make these again and again with my kids.

Cream of Asparagus Soup II

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2007
This is the simplest basic recipe for creme of asparagus and it can be made simpler. I omitted the flour and it still came out delish. Instead of onions I added leaks, which for the most part, I did not puree and these gave the soup some body. I used one leek, almost top to bottom. First I sauteed the leeks in the butter, then added the can of broth and half&half. I used only one can (14 oz.) of chicken broth. Then I steamed the asparagus until then were bright green but still crunchy. I pureed the asparaus (left some for garnish) and mixed in with the broth. Three really basic steps. It fed two adults and three children (ages 6,8,3)with about 1/2 serving left over. I used no other flavoring but what the recipe called for (and the leeks) and the taste was wonderful. I did not use pepper (kids might not like it.)

World's Best Scones! From Scotland to the Savoy to the U.S.

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2007
These come out delicious. I did add a wee bit more sugar because the kids like 'em sweet and used salted butter because that's what I had in the frig. I've made them with white flower and ran out of sour cream so I used a generous 1/4 cu of of Philly Cream Cheese and one time a friend, visiting, even added one mashed banana. Delish! They had a cheesy crust. I've also made them with the Philly cheese and 1/2 cu half&half instead of milk. Yum. This recipe makes 4 big scones or 6 mixed sizes. The first I made it I over blended. The next time I kneaded by hand and let the butter make a crumb-like texture with the flour. I've also made them with 1 cup each of white and red wheat I ground myself and they come out the consistency of cookies. A bit hard but greeeeaaat tasting and healthy. Can't seem to go wrong with this one. Everytime I've made them they've come out great. This recipe makes a great basic recipe to which you can add other ingredients. I believe cooking time depends on the oven. When using white flower and cream cheese I've had to extend the cooking time to 18-20 minutes.

Kids Favorite Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2007
Anything the kids will eat deserves 5 stars! Kids liked it, even the finicky 3 year old. Changes: didn't have Worcestershire sauce, added tiny pieces of red & yellow bell pepper, zucchini, leeks- all in small amounts. I had to sneak in those veggies! I did not use mustard, pepper or garlic salt (used herbed croutons instead). I didn't have cereal and used small amount of herbed croutons and quick oats equal to that called for in the recipe. Turned out great nonetheless and the smell is delish. Next time I will try with Worcestershire sauce. I cooked it in a 9x5 glass container- it shrank and released a lot of liquid- easy to dump. However, it was moist. If you cut the pieces too small it will fall apart. No biggie.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2007
The taste is great, spicy. I added more cinnamon but did not double the spices. I did add 2/3 cu apple sauce-- the batter had the consistency of glue. Not good. I added water but cut back a little to compensate for extra applesauce. The consistency got better. I baked it and it cracked like the Arizona desert- I mean big cracks! Baked in convection oven for 50 minutes and checked. The top was leathery, the upper most layer good cake-like, the middle layer more like pudding. I used a 9x5 silicon bake-ware. What went wrong? The convection oven? Should I have used regular oven instead? Too much appleasauce? Too much water? Someone please help me!!:( I will try and post of picture of my Arizona Desert Old Fashioned Gingerbread.
