Michell Jenny's Challah

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
This recipe was really authentic and tasted as good as it looked! I would suggest adding an egg wash after the last rising and just before you put it in the oven. This makes it shine. The egg wash contains one egg and 1 tablespoon water beaten together and brushed over the top of the braided dough. Also, to make the bread festive, sprinkle some sesame or poppy seeds over the top just before baking!

Lemon Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2006
This recipe was very moist and melts in your mouth as you bite into it. I would suggests adding a tbls. more of confectioners to the glaze. It tends to run down the sides of the loaf and does not stick onto it really well. I would definately make this bread again. I would also suggest using fresh lemons in this recipe. It makes it sweet and tart too!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
I haven't made a lot of cheesecakes in general, but this is by far the best recipe i have run across. The consistency is heavenly; creamy, thick, and the perfect balance of cream cheese and sugar. The graham cracker crust is what makes it for me in almost any cheesecake. I varied the crust a little bit by adding some striped chocolate shortbread cookies. I also made my crust thicker by doubling the amounts suggested in the recipe. When i mixed up the cheesecake batter I ended up with an excess amount of batter which i used to make mini cheesecake cupcakes. They were perfect! I simply pulled out a cupcake pan, filled it with cupcake wrappers, put a layer of crust, then filled it 3/4 full with the batter. Baked it for 15 min or until they were firm, but still a little jiggly in the middle. When making the cheesecake I aslo used a water bath as some others suggested. I would definitely reccomend this. It seemed to even out the baking of the cheesecake. Also, letting the cheesecake cool in the oven after baking allowed it to cool evenly and prevented any cracking. All in all, this was a PERFECT cheesecake! I will definitely use this recipe again!

Mexican Mocha Mix

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006
This was a great recipe for cold winter mornings and even when you just feel like a mexican style drink. I would reccomend cutting down on the cocoa powder. It is some what overwhelming.
