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.

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!

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
My crockpot is small - it just held a single 4 pound corn beef and the beer and spices, no room for anything else. I put it in for 10 hours on 'low', but my 'low' is VERY low - at 10 hours it was still somewhat firm. At 14 hours, though, it was LIKE BUTTER, totally delectable and perfect. So you need to know your own crock pot, but this was an ideal, ideal recipe (great for shabbos / yuntiv too).

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...

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
Quite good and flexible. I doubled it for a 9X13, and used a combination of dubious fresh (some green!) peaches and one small can of peach slices (with the juice, since I was worried about the sweetness of the fresh peaches). It was more cinnamon than I thought necessary - if I double it again, I would not double the cinnamon.

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
Plain, simple, beautiful. Used whole wheat flour (that's what I had) and microwaved all the liquid ingredients together (just a little tricky with the flour clumping). Also added fresh chives for extra color and flavor. Wonderful non-dairy ('parve') side dish, reheated beautifully.

Wonderful Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2007
Everyone loved it. Used 1 kilo of meat, so I had to round up the ingredients. Basically, did it as written except added two eggs, about 3 tablespoons wheat germ, salt, pepper, and about a teaspoon minced garlic. Used brown rice, not white, and since it was more meat upped it to a full cup of rice. Fantastic, and wonderfully simple. It held together, but I did need to cook it for about 45 minutes.

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.

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.

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!

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!

Japanese Ginger Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
Adored it, all of us. Great on romaine with some nuts - amazing. Very dietetic, since you don't need much of it, it's so strong. I used an immersion blender so skipped all the chopping, and it worked beautifully. Added some rice vinegar as per the recommendations, used regular mustard since I didn't have dijon in the house- it was fantastic, making it again now! Dumped some of it on frozen peas and baked it with a little water - also fantastic.

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!

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.

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.

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).

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
Great base recipe. Used half whole wheat, half white flour. Used brown sugar instead of white. Used soy milk instead of cow's. I didn't have enough bananas, so I used apple sauce to get up to a cup of fruit. I then also tossed in a few other things I wanted my daughter to eat :), like some wheat germ and some quinoa cereal that had dried fruit in it. All worked like a charm - they were great! My husband and I ate way more than my daughter!

Tartar Sauce IV

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
This was not bad, but you will need to play with the proportions if you downsize the recipe. Also, I tried to save time by making it all with an immersion blender; it blended the onion and pickle too far down, and the texture was too soupy. So do follow the recipe as written.
