Braised Corned Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2014
No pot, so seared it in the oven. No rack, just laid it in the pan. No time, so did 350 degrees for 4 hours. Still perfect and amazing.

Delicious Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2013
Like others, I replaced half the oil with sugar free applesauce - great. Also I used fresh, boiled pumpkin instead of canned, and so I omitted the extra water (since the pumpkin was so wet) and also used probably 3 cups total. Used chocolate chips too.

Sugar Free Nut Macaroons

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2012
Really good! As others said, a bit crumbly (and I wouldn't call them macaroons at all, just a cookie), but really a good flavor. I would even reduce the sweetener a little. I want to try subbing apple sauce for some of the oil - it might make them stick together a bit. Used pecans - totally delicious.

One Minute Chocolate Icing

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2012
Well it took more than 1 minute, but this was easy and didn't need powdered sugar, yay! I tripled the recipe for everything except the vanilla (oops, I forgot it). Also used margarine not butter, and soy milk not cow's milk. The character of the icing did not change with beating; that is, seemed the same before and after. A tripled recipe was ample for two 9 X 13 cakes. I poured / dolloped it on like ganache, just smoothing a bit with the back of the spoon. Great recipe!

Burger or Hot Dog Buns

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2012
Fantastic! I used 80% whole wheat, 1 tablespoon instant yeast, and replaced the 1 cup of milk with a 1/2 cup of soy milk and more water. Also used margarine instead of butter. Just simply perfect, rave reviews, totally wonderful. I will be making these for my kids' lunches, much cheaper than buying them the rolls I was sending them to school with!

Sugar Free Chocolate Macaroons

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
I just couldn't get this to work. I was using a different brand of sucralose, and a liquid one at that. It just wouldn't, wouldn't work. Cookies came out like lumps of styrofoam that crumbled into ashes. Not so appealing. Maybe it was me, but I will try another recipe next.

Good 100% Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
I wanted to make this South Beach appropriate. SMade by hand. I wanted to use one kilo of flour, so calculated to 33 servings. Used canola oil in place of margarine, one cup of soy milk in place of the powdered milk and one of the cups of water, and used liquid sucralose in place of the sugar. Proofed the yeast with the remaining warm water and a tiny bit of brown sugar (so the yeast could grow), then added to the other ingredients. I needed to add extra flour, the dough was so sticky. Let dough rise twice, then shaped. Incredible texture - the lightest 100% WW I ever made. I like a sweeter flavor - honey would have been excellent - but it was really, really great. Will make again.

Texas BBQ Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
Made exactly as written, scaled for a 4.5 pound brisket (not 'flat cut', just nicely trimmed). Took about 4-5 hours on my stove, but was totally fantastic. No changes needed!

Caramel Apple Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
Fantastic. Used unsweetened applesauce for half the oil, omitted nuts, shredded the unpeeled apples... and added a bit of cinnamon and used soy milk / margarine for the topping. To die for. Will try using whole wheat flour next - it's moist enough to handle it. Amazing, amazing recipe.

Butternut Squash Supreme

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
No changes except microwaved the squash until soft, and used a more piquant cheese than cheddar (whatever I had on hand). Perfect.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
I feel like this was so close, but not quite the thing. I didn't use real chicken broth, maybe that was the problem, and I used powdered, not fresh ginger. Still, a splash of vinegar improved this, but I don't think I'll make this one again.

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
By recommendations, added extra cup of oats and vanilla. Frankly, I preferred nibbling on the dough to eating the baked cookie! Texture was wonderful, but the flavor was not as rich as I like in a cookie, and was too white-sugar-y (hard to describe!). Not bad, but I will look elsewhere for a cookie.

Sara Jane's Oatmeal Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2009
Cake was very dense but enjoyable, topping was more like a thin macaroon than a frosting? We all liked it, all ate it - but it was a bit odd.

The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
Made with whole wheat flour. Dough was coarse and mealy, cookies were nice in terms of flavor, odd in terms of texture.

Irene's Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
I was very surprised how good this was. The ingredients were not intuitive for me, and the smell of the sauce base boiling was NOT very good! I baked chicken with this sauce, reserving some for a final basting - and it was really, truly great, and I was so pleased that it wasn't heavily laden with sugar like so many sauces. Will make it again!

Asian Coleslaw

Reviewed: May 8, 2009
Just reviewing the dressing - excellent, but had to add more oil, vinegar and soy to thin it out (was scoopably thick).

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
Another corn syrup substitution: I used cheap pancake syrup, since it's basically corn syrup anyway. I also used soy milk instead of regular. It still worked (I needed about 5 tsp of milk total, still just 2 tsp of syrup - and the syrup had enough flavor I skipped the extract). I am very pleased - the icing makes up for my abysmal decorating skills...

Honey Garlic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
Very simple, very good. I added a smidgen of salt and pepper. Increasing the garlic would also be good.
