Can't Get Enough Caramel Cookies!

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
SALTY! I can see that these would have potential, but as the recipe is written there is much too much salt, and it totally spoils the bars. On the other hand, it's certainly easy to whip together and the ingredients are things that are usually around the house.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
The name says it all! This is a delicious, rich chocolate frosting that's easy to make and tastes wonderful. My only recommendation is to make sure to sift the sugar and cocoa first so you don't have any lumps. It's so good you just want to forget the cake and eat the frosting!

Simple Beef Short Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
This is a good basic recipe that's not hard to make. The short ribs came out really tender. I didn't do it, but you probably could make a good gravy from the broth to serve on mashed potatoes.

Lola's Horchata

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
I've only tasted horchata once and never made it before. It was...a learning experience. If you don't have a blender and substitute a food processor, DO NOT put very much water in with the rice because centrifugal force will send the water right up the sides of the food processor and out onto the counter because there isn't a seal on the top. In spite of the mini-flood I was able to make the horchata and I enjoyed the flavor although if I made it again I would cut back a little on the sugar and use cinnamon sticks as others have suggested. I liked the cinnamon flavor, but not all the powdered cinnamon that settled on the bottom of the glass.

Raspberry Pain au Chocolat (Raspberry Chocolate Croissants)

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
These turned out very well and were not difficult to make. People were surprised that I hadn't bought them at a bakery. The crust is flaky and crisp and the filling is good. I would recommend being generous with the filling. Some of mine had more than others, and the ones with more tasted better. Some may bubble out on baking but it doesn't really matter.

Margarita Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
I loved the pretzel crust and my guests were surprised to learn what it was. I only used about 3/4 of the container of whipped topping and if I made it again I would cut back a little more to make the lime/orange flavor even more predominant. Some have said that the filling didn't set well, and reducing the whipped topping may help that problem as mine held its shape perfectly.

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2008
I was amazed at how good these were. We had to try them before they were completely cool, and then we had some more later. We preferred them at room temperature--but don't get me wrong, they were good warm too, although a good bit runnier. I would make these again.

Sunny-Side-Up Pizza

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2008
This was pretty good and kind of fun. I did put salt and pepper on the eggs before adding the other toppings. I think I would use cheddar instead of mozzarella if I made it again, simply because I think cheddar goes better with eggs.

Lemon Pepper Zucchini

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
Like others, I didn't use the full amount of lemon pepper as it would have been far too much. I just sprinkled the zucchini with what appeared to be a reasonable amount. Neither of us particularly cared for this and I will not make it again.

Rosemary Roasted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2008
Very easy to make, with good results. The meat was perfectly cooked and tender. I put all the marinade on the meat when baking it, and it thickened up into a nice sauce to serve with the pork, giving it even more flavor. The only thing I would do differently next time would be to use apple juice rather than the apple juice concentrate if I were going to serve the marinade as a sauce. As it concentrates during the baking, the apple flavor gets almost too strong. But that's a minor point, and overall the recipe gets thumbs up.

Caramelized French Toast

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
This recipe simply doesn't work as written. I reduced the heat to melt the brown sugar, but it immediately clumped when I added the water. By adding a bit more water, beating the clumps with the back of a spoon to break them apart, and slowly heating the mixture on low heat, I was able to dissolve the clumps. We both found the taste to be disappointing since it tasted only of strong brown sugar. The sauce was very sticky and unappealing, and the taste of the French toast itself was nothing special. When I can't finish something I've made I have to give it one star.

Balsamic Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
I used regular potatoes and onion since that's what I had, and I also used fresh herbs. We both liked these as a nice change from ordinary herb roasted potatoes, and I will probably make them again.

Gingerbread Biscotti

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
I've made biscotti before and understand that they are not sweet like a cookie, nevertheless there was hardly any sweetness to these biscotti, The spice and molasses flavors were good. The recipe says it will make a stiff dough. Well that's an understatement. I was afraid it was going to burn out my Kitchen Aid mixer and finished trying to get the dough together by hand. I think there's far too much flour for the amount of liquid. In addition, the whole wheat flour gave the finished biscotti the consistency of sawdust.

Chili-Lime Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
I was disappointed these didn't have as much lime flavor as I was hoping for. I also thought they were a little dry even though I put some pineapple chunks on the skewers with the chicken.

Awesome Egg Salad with a Kick

Reviewed: May 10, 2008
Wow! Was this ever good! I scaled it way back because it was just lunch for me, so I may not have gotten the proportions exactly right but they were close. I used a piece of real bacon and onion powder since I didn't have red onion. Ate it in a pita, and finished wishing I had more. Yum!

Bunwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
Wow, these were really good! I only made enough for two of us, and I rehydrated dried minced onion instead of using fresh. They needed about 12 minutes to heat through and melt the cheese. I can definitely see making these ahead of time when you want to feed a number of people at once. Very convenient.

Strawberry Spinach Salad II

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
This is a fantastic salad as well as a beautiful one. I made it as written except I didn't have any sesame seeds. The blend of tastes and textures is wonderful. By adding other things such as chicken, nuts or cheese it can be made into an entree salad. Great stuff, and I can't wait to serve it to guests.

Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce III

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
This is a very good bread pudding and I made it exactly as written. I used bread I made using the Fabulous French Loaves recipe. The texture was just right--moist but not runny, and a little crisp on the top and sides. I loved the sauce and I think the sharpness of the whiskey provides a nice contrast to the sweetness of the bread pudding. The sauce takes it from being a good bread pudding to being an excellent one. Only thing of note was that I had to bake it for an hour before it was set.

Peanut Butter Cup Grilled Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2008
I can't believe I actually ate this. We were talking about it and I couldn't resist trying it. It was okay, but I think the bottom line is that I don't like grilled peanut butter sandwiches whether they have chocolate, jelly or bananas in them.

Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2008
The addition of some Parmesan cheese on top takes this from okay to really good. I love that it's a tasty dish than can be made in a very short time. Will definitely make again.
