Candied Citrus Peel

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
Excellent! My first time making candied orange peel and it was a huge success. I love this! As someone else remarked, tasted almost like those orange jelly candies. Orange flavor just erupts in your mouth! I used a veggie peeler to peel the orange so it wasn't beautiful (I was using the peel in a recipe) so no pith. A little time is spent but the flavor is big. Will definitely make this again and again. Thank you!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
Excellent icing. I used it to trim my supersized gingerbread men and it works like a charm. The recipe is quite forgiving; I needed additional milk to get the desired consistency for easy piping and I kept adding it in small drops, mixing and testing small amounts until I found what I wanted. I swapped out the almond flavoring for vanilla. Corn syrup gives it a nice gloss and helps to harden it.

Vietnamese Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
The bee's knees! This is the only way I make iced coffee now. I've also made this using homemade sweetenened condensed milk. A winner either way.

World's Best Scones! From Scotland to the Savoy to the U.S.

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
Truly a very fine scone, light in both flavor and texture, not biscuity at all. I'm sure that I'll be making this again! Thank you for sharing this.

Cape Cod

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
There's a reason this drink is a classic, it's simple, delicious and beautiful. An old favorite that I am glad to revisit again and again.

Chocolate Wafer Ice Cream Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
Just the ticket for a fun, easy, pretty dessert that everyone enjoyed! I've also used chocolate chip, oatmeal, and plain sugar cookies, dipped in sprinkles of all sorts. They were all great! Thank you for such a fun submission!

The Perfect Mai Tai

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2008
This was a very nice cocktail and so festive looking; looks are deceiving though--it will kick your butt if you're not paying attention to how much you're consuming! As others, I did not use the 151 proof, and just divided equally between the dark and light rum. One cup of the almond flavored syrup was overpowering; next time I will cut back to 1/2 cup, sample the drink, and then increase the amount if needed. Same goes for the simple syrup. (I think I just have sour tastebuds.) We will be enjoying again! Thank you.

Honey White Loaves

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
I'm giving this five stars with a minor stipulation. I found the dough to be very easy to work with, the bread has a wonderful fluffy texture, rises full and high, slices beautifully. I followed the recipe and made two loaves of bread plus a pan of one dozen rolls. The rolls were some of the best I've ever had. My boyfriend commented they were like the soft rolls you can get in restaurants. The honey flavor shines through, and made the best ham and cheese sandwiches ever. Now, for the MINOR stipulation--I don't care for this toasted! It toasts a little too crisp for me, but it would make GREAT bread crumbs. (For toast, I love the Amish white bread, also on this site.) All in all, I would make this again, would definitely use it to make hot rolls for a crowd (figure about 3 dozen rolls), or as sliced sandwich bread. So good!

Sugar Cookie Cutouts

Reviewed: May 9, 2008
Really a delightful sugar cookie; not too sweet, and so tender. I used an organic butter and the buttery taste shown through brilliantly. Even after several days in a covered tin, the cookie is still tender and flavorful. I didn't have time to cut them out; I just rolled into a log, refrigerated, and then cut into slices. Dough spreads, so bear that in mind. Doesn't need any kind of icing, though the next time I make these, I'm thinking a simple icing with a touch of lemon in it. These cookies received rave reviews from all who tried them! Thank you for sharing this great recipe!

Easy Bacon, Onion and Cheese Stuffed Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
So filling and delicious! I pressed the hamburg as thin as possible and made equal sized patties. Next time, I think I'll deliberately make two diffent sized patties, putting my filling on the smaller one, and topping with the larger hamburger patty to make more secure topper and edge. I omitted the BBQ sauce (not a bit fan of it) and added the slightest bit of powdered garlic. For the life of me I can't grill hamburgers without their falling into the flame, so I pan-fried these and it worked wonderfully. Boyfriend raved about how good these are and I agree. Thank you for a fun, different and tasty way to make hamburgers!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
A very nice entree with items I often have on hand. I took the advice of an earlier reviewer and added black olives, and that was a good addition; we used a mild salsa (BF doesn't like picante), but even still, tasty and a dish that we'll have again. Thanks for the submission!

Chicken Costa Brava

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
Sweet and spicy! Fantastic flavor combination; even the BF who usually forgoes spicy foods said this was a winner. Earlier suggestions to cut chicken into bite-sized pieces seem to be a good idea, as we liked this over rice and it would've made it a little neater to eat. All in all a delicious meal. Thanks for this submission!

Hamburger Hash Browns

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
I shake my head as there is so much processed and packaged ingredients in this, but my boyfriend absolutely loves this and I really like it too. I've made it a couple of times already. As another reviewer noted, 15 minutes for the "crust" really isn't enough; I also went 30 minutes, anything less and the potatoes still have a raw, gluey taste to me. Probably not really good for you, but it sure tastes good!

Creamed Spinach II

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
So good and so easy! I was running out of oven space and couldn't make our traditional spinach casserole and found this terrific stovetop version. Based on the review of others, I added onions that were fried til golden, a small can of mushrooms, drained, added a bit of garlic, and a good handful of cheddar cheese. Very good! Will make this again!

Chicken in a Pot

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
Oh dear, I am sorry to be among those who did not really care for this as written; as others noted who also didn't care for this dish, there didn't seem to be a whole lot of flavor. I ended up doubling the tomato paste and the listed spices; it still tasted rather plain to me, and then I added basil and thyme. Much, much better! Based on my modifications, I would make this again.

Mimosa

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
For the first time ever, we had this wonderful drink at our Thanksgiving breakfast, along with Eggs Benedict. What a fine way to celebrate a holiday, the beginning of a relationshipship or the end of one...or any other reason.

Buttery Carrots 'n' Onions

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
At first glance, a sleeper recipe that one could easily overlook but absolutely should not! Just the right balance of sweetness. Looks beautiful on the plate. Picky BF ate two helpings and asked that we save the leftovers so he can have them! This will definitely be a repeat in our house. Thanks for this great submission!

Baked Apple Oatmeal

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2007
Great, hearty, and so good for you! I omitted the nuts as BF has an allergy to them, but otherwise followed the recipe. (I added the nuts to my own bowl after cooking, would've been better baked with the cereal, but still very good.) The wheat bran gives it an unusual, but not unpleasant texture. I feel positively righteous eating this! Thank you for a great submission, and one I'll be making again in these winter months.

Three Bean Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
This is so good! I'm newly hooked on three-bean salad; I had been buying it in the cans for an easy-to-prepare salad for work lunches, something easy, filling, and far less expensive than the salad bar at the office cafeteria. I found I was adding to the canned stuff and then decided to try a recipe. Based on the modifications of earlier cooks, I added finely diced green pepper, red onion, and celery (omitting the celery seed). My own flourishes were to add drained sweet corn niblets and a couple of good shakes of cumin. I am in love! Next time I'm leaving out the green beans and just using black beans, kidney beans, and garbanzo. I think I'll also add a shake of oregano. This is an excellent base. Sugar, vinegar, oil mixture was right on for me! Thank you so much for this submission. And reviewers, thank you for sharing your tips!
