Spicy Oven Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2002
One way to avoid a soggy crust is to bake the chicken on a rack. Take the rack out of a roasting pan or use a self standing a cooling rack. Set it on top of or inside (depending on whether or not is is a standing rack) the pan you're cooking the chicken on. Lay the chicken on the rack. Air will circulate under the chicken and the bottom will not be soggy.

Cola Pot Roast II

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2002
I've made lots of pot roasts and this one is unique. The sauce is what makes it great. The cola really adds something -- it's sweet and snappy. This recipe is also very easy. You don't have to mix all the sauce ingredients in a separate bowl. Just throw them all in the pot, stir, and plop in the roast. Also, I didn't turn the roast over after 3 hours. No need.

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.

Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2002
This is a great recipe. Use a good brand of pasta sauce, add lots of garlic and peppers and you'll have a restaurant quality meal. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you use boneless, skinless breasts (as I did), only cook for about 4 to 5 (max) hours on LOW or else your chicken's texture will be like canned.

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2003
This is a very good, basic honey mustard dressing. Tastes great on smoked turkey wraps.

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.

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.

Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2001
This recipe was very flavorful. I marinated chicken tenderloins overnight then grilled them the next evening. Next time, I will add a few extra tablespoons of brown sugar.

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.

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.

Chicken and Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2002
This recipe was great, but the measurements on the ingredient list must be way off. 1 1/2 cups of sugar is WAY too much. So is 1 tablespoon of salt. This recipe is perfect with about 1/2 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of pepper and t teaspoon of paprika. Also, I suggest simmering the chicken with the lid off so the wine will reduce a bit.

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.

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.

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.

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.
