Raisin Buttermilk Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2011
This is a fantastically easy recipe that turns out deliciously! It was a big hit with the family and the best way to use up my leftover buttermilk. I cut back the white sugar to just under a cup, and upped the raisins to a cup and a half. Instead of melting the butter for the crumble I just folded it in - just some advice, fold it in and don't leave it there for too long otherwise the butter starts melting and the crumble becomes a gooey mess! It still turned out really delicious though, just not as even. Will definitely keep using this recipe and might even buy buttermilk specifically for it!

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
Absolutely delicious cookies - the jam on top makes it out of this world! My jam turned a bit sticky on the top after being baked but that's what made it so delicious. I opted out of the icing drizzle just because I thought it would be sweet enough and glad I chose to. Great cookies - they are always a hit!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
This is my GO TO recipe for chocolate chip cookies. I've made these probably 25 times and it always comes out delicious. I used to cut the butter (trying to be health conscious!) but seriously, if you want a treat and if you want it to be perfect, just use ALL the recommended amount and it comes out like heaven! The great thing is this is a fantastic base for a cookie so you can add in nuts, white chocolate chips, etc. to it too!

Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
A very interesting take on making chicken! I love the idea and love using beer in cooking. Standing the chicken, pulling out the can (butter the can!) was all easier than I thought. The chicken came out very tender but it was too bland for my tastes. I would say definitely make some adjustments to the spice blend and put some outside and inside - don't rely on the can to make the chicken tasty/salty.

Ham Breakfast Braid

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
Easy to make and delicious! Cream cheese with eggs has always been my favorite (not enough people know about this!) so I'm glad to see it used in a recipe. One thing to keep in mind - try using frozen (or semi-frozen) crescent roll dough because mine was only refrigerated and it got super sticky and hard to work with. I must say, the instructions to do the braid at the top got me kind of confused, but I covered it all up and then made a fake criss cross pattern with the leftover dough and it looked fine. Haha. Fake it if it goes wrong! :)

Beer and Brown Sugar Steak Marinade

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
A super tasty marinade! I usually cook up my steaks with a simple salt and peppercorn crust but sometimes you definitely want a different taste! I like the use of teriyaki sauce and the sweet balance the sugar brings to the bitter beer. I used a ziploc bag to marinate and put in some mushrooms while reducing the sauce (mushrooms on top of steak = yum). Another thing to remember is that if your steak isn't salty enough (because I am paranoid of over-salting my food), you can add salt into the reduced sauce and pour it on. I served with a side of mashed butternut squash to bring out the sweetness and a vinegar celery salad.

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
Mmm very delicious! This recipe is perfect for when you don't want to get any special ingredients at the supermarket - just make it with all the dried herbs you have in your pantry! I used some balsamic that had some raspberry flavor which added a nice sweetness to the reduction. A higher quality balsamic would definitely taste even better. Super easy, super convenient!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
This is the best carrot cake on the face of this planet - who knew it was so simple to make such delicious carrot cake when the stores charge you an arm and a leg! The entire family loved it and stuffed it into their bellies after a huge dinner. Thank you so much!

Thai Green Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
Thanks so much for a great thai green curry recipe! I also love to put in eggplant, cauliflower, and bamboo shoots, stir frying them a bit with the chicken. Obviously this recipe will depend on what type of green curry paste you get, but I've found the most popular brands at Chinese supermarkets all do the trick. Quite often I prefer my curry with a bit more kick/spiciness so I add some fresh red peppers.

Spice Cookies with Crystallized Ginger

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
Absolutely delicious! Instead of using store bought crystallized ginger, I made some myself by boiling cut/shredded ginger in sugar water until it the ginger became chewy on the inside and crispy on the outside (around 20-30 minutes). Mixing that into the batter was absolutely delicious. In fact, I would even love the chunks of crystallized ginger to be larger but I'm a ginger freak. The cookies had great texture even when cooled down - not too crispy and not too soft. Thanks for a great recipe!
