Raspberry Squares II
I give it 4 stars because I feel it needs a little tweaking...but really, as a base recipe it deserves 5 starts. One thing I'll agree with most...use a 9x9 pan, and definitely use more jam. I did 8 oz, and ended up wishing I used the whole 12 oz jar. Definitely add 1/2 tsp salt, and either some vanilla or almond extract, or some kind of flavoring. I can imagine going lemon or orange marmalade with this too...hmmm. All in all, tasty bars, a versatile recipe with few ingredients, and sooo easy to make, a keeper!

Honey Wheat Sandwich Rolls
As advertised, these make a delicious roll/sandwich/hamburger bun. For every day use, I substitute Light Karo corn syrup for the honey, it's much cheaper and tastes less sweet than honey. I also rarely have milk on hand, but I do have half and half (for my coffee), so I use about 1 cup of water and 1/4 cup of half and half for the milk. My only other comment would be that these don't brown particularly well on their own, so if appearance is important, you might want to egg wash them. (like other reviewers, I usually don't brush on the butter at the end)

Unbaked Meringue
This is very easy, and if you need a no-fail meringue to serve to guests in terms of appearance, this does the trick. (do it same day though....it did weep overnight in the fridge). The texture is just not as light and airy as I prefer though...it is more like marshmallow fluff than meringue (fyi, I baked a blob as an experiment, and it literally turned into a marshmallow). So, for certain pies, a great option (I'm visualizing a chocolate cream S'mores pie, for instance), but unfortunately, for me, the search for my perfect, weep-less meringue continues (for lemon and coconut cream pies). One other note, I was suprised at the volume you can get with just two egg whites with this recipe. It really is plenty for a 9" pie. Also, I didn't have cream of tartar, substituted 1/4 tsp white vinegar, it worked fine.
