Baklava

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
YUMMMMM! My husband is not a big fan of baklava because it's usually overly sweet for him, but he loves this baklava! This has just the right amount of sweetness without being too sweet.

Zippy Chicken Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
My husband, who is a very choosy former chef and cooks for us much of the time, said it was the best thing I've ever made and he wished he had a bigger stomach! The only change I made is one of my favorite shortcuts. Instead of cutting up and cooking the chicken, I used two large cans of canned chicken, drained and used 2 tablespoons of butter to saute the vegetables since canned chicken is already cooked. My husband said that I could have used the juice instead of draining the cans, but I was afraid that it would make the chowder too thin. Since canned chicken is already cooked, I jumped ahead to sauteing the vegetables in 2 tablespoons of butter.

Christmas Creamy Egg Nog

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
Very good! What attracted me to this recipe is that it uses the egg yolks and the whites. (What would I do with 12 egg whites?) It seemed like it made a small batch (5 servings, and only 4 eggs), so I made a double batch. But my largest bowl wasn't big enough, so I stopped at 7 cups of milk instead of 9, which helped it stay a little thicker. I wouldn't have wanted to add any more milk. At first there was hardly any flavor to it, but then I realized I had forgotten to double the sugar and vanilla! As soon as I fixed it, the taste was perfect! It was still a little thinner than store-bought, but still very good. (I don't drink, so I skipped the rum.) So my advice is just use less milk -- or try whipped cream like another reviewer suggested.
