Tex-Mex Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
I'm hopeless when it comes to making homemade rice, but this was a huge success! I think the process of making it in a skillet and cooking the rice in oil helps. My only complaint was a I found the rice to be a tad bit salty. Not a big deal since that can always be adjusted. Thanks Kat!

Hawaiian Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2004
I had 12 oz of graham crackers I needed to use up so I scaled the recipe to three fourths and baked it in a 13x9 inch pan. It was done in 30 minutes. The cake didn't rise much, but it was moist, tender, and has a uniquely delicious taste from the graham crackers. It makes a great sheet cake and goes well with a whipped cream cheese or whipped cream frosting.

Butter Cream Frosting II

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2003
When made with butter instead of margarine, this recipe gets 5 stars. Wow! The taste and texture are fabulous. And yes, this really does taste like the kind of frosting on bakery cakes. One hint. If you have some, add about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of butter extract. Purists might argue against it, but if you're looking for "bakery" taste, the butter extract will take it a step closer. Also, I found that this recipe worked best with my KitchenAid. I whipped the frosting for about 5 minutes. Without the KitchenAid, I might not have had the patience.

Vanilla Ice Cream V

Tasted icy. Not nearly as smooth as custard based ice creams.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: May 1, 2003
These weren't bad, but they weren't great either. Texture was good, but there was something lacking in the taste. They just didn't seem quite as rich as most chocolate chip cookies and they were definitely not fat.

Chewy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2003
Finally! A cookie with the perfect texture -- crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle. I used real butter instead of margarine and substituted a 1/2 teaspoon almond extract for some of the vanilla.

Indian Tandoori Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2003
This was the best, most flavorful chicken tandoori I have ever made. I used skinless breasts on the bone, marinated them for 24 hours, and broiled them for 10-12 minutes on each side.

Cheddar Bay Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2003
I made these as a side dish to fried chicken. It wasn't the healthiest meal, but boy was it good. The biscuits were gobbled up and everyone commented how good they were. They are also super-easy to make.

San Francisco Sourdough Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2003
This recipe did not have the taste nor texture of San Francisco sourdough. That is, it had no sourdough flavor whatsover and the texture was soft rather than crusty and chewy. That said, I am still giving it 5 stars because it is really good! I made two round loaves. They tasted like big, soft hot rolls.

White Russian Tiramisu

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2002
Better than restaurant tiramisu and light! One thing I did that really improved the texture was add a tub of Fat Free Cool Whip to 1/2 of the cheese mixture. I put a layer "Non-Cool Whipped" cheese mixture on top of the first layer of ladyfingers then added Cool Whip to the remaining half of the cheese mixture and topped the second layer with that.

Black Forest Cake II

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2002
I made this for my husband's birthday. Since he loves Black Forest Cake, and until now has only had the grocery store bakery version, this was a special treat. The chocolate cake part is pretty basic but the Kirschwasser lifts it up and the rich buttercream is a nice contrast to the outside coating of whipped cream. Notes: I used 9 inch cake pans so the cake was not too tall. Also, I added 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar to the whipped cream frosting. Even with the added sugar, the cake was not overly sweet -- it was just right. Finally, this is not a cake for kids -- the kirschwasser is pretty strong and the alcohol taste will probably turn them off.

Spritz Cookies IV

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2002
These were light and crispy and worked very well in my cookie press. For those who think 3 cups of flour sounds like a lot, remember this recipe uses CAKE flour -- so you'll need the full 3 cups. If you use all purpose, you could get by with less flour.

Basic British Scones

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2002
This is the only scone recipe you need! These turn out perfect every time and they're not loaded with fat like some scones. I make these with butter instead of margarine and I usually use 3 tablespoons of sugar instead of 2 (1/8 cup). Good additions are 1 tablespoon of orange zest and dried cranberries or 1/2 cup frozen blueberries.
