Lebanese Lemon Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2013
Delicious! Fast, simple dressing - used it on a salad of mixed greens. Actually used the leftover dressing to toss with waxy potatoes & chill for a brightly flavored cold potato salad. It is very lemony, but such a clean flavor.

Four Egg Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2013
Wonderful cake - I used yolks only and added a fifth egg yolk. I think Crisco shortening is creepy so I used lard. This is an old-fashioned cake - more dense than boxed cakes. It doesn't dome when you bake it - I made it as a fudge-iced 2 layer cake so it was perfect for that. My Dad declared as good as the cake his mother used to make for his birthday as a kid - we celebrated his 70th birthday with this delicious cake.

Simple Syrup

Reviewed: May 2, 2013
Worked PERFECTLY! I made two batches... a plain white sugar syrup, and another with turbinado sugar (Sugar in the Raw). I poured the turbinado syrup over crushed mint leaves. I'll let it steep 24 hours before straining out the leaves and discarding them. Gorgeous dark mint syrup, right on time for Derby Day! I can offer my guests a mint julep... OR a mojito!

Butternut Squash Bisque

Reviewed: May 2, 2013
Simple, silky, subtle! This isn't an overwhelming soup, bold flavors. Next time, I'll make double. Leave out the cream to freeze it, then add when I reheat later. Dreamy!

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
Great recipe. Light, fluffy, perfect pancakes. Very happy - followed it to the letter (used actual buttermilk) and they turned out PERFECTLY. I made 2/3 of the recipe - fed 3 adults and a hungry 5-year-old with a couple leftover. Popped the leftover pancakes in the toaster on low heat, ate with fried apples the next day.

Triple the Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
I made these for a cookie swap with all my relatives. They were hugely popular - I like my ginger cookies with some BITE. I recommend rolling the cookie dough in turbinado sugar before baking it - the sparkle makes them feel that much more festive! This will be a welcome addition to our family traditions.
