Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
Have you ever tried this as a make ahead? As in prep the night before, refrigerate, and let rise in the morning?

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
I've made these twice and they turned out spectacularly both times. I omitted the raisins, used a square pan to keep them super gooey and moist, cut them a little thicker (9 rolls instead of 12, to fit the pan better), and topped them with a simple cream cheese frosting another reviewer recommended. FANTASTIC. If my waistline would forgive it, these would be at least a once a month regular. As it is, they make it in twice a year at least! Very well received and highly requested! Just as easy as it seems. Great recipe, thanks! (Tip for under equipped cooks; I used a wine bottle wrapped in parchment paper the first time, since I didn't have a rolling pin yet!)

Mint-Cucumber Mojitos

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
Good basic recipe, gives a great starting place with room to play with specifics. I generally prefer to use simple syrup in place of sugar. Simple syrup is easily made at home if you don't want to buy it (just boil 2 parts sugar with 1 part water until disolved, cool, and mix! It can be stored in a clean bottle in the fridge for a couple of weeks.) and adds a more mingled sweetness, since the sugar doesn't usually disolve completely in cold liquids. Try both and pick your preference. Also, if making in advance consider trying it with the alcohol added ahead of time. It gives the flavors a chance to mingle more than if just muddling. A possible variation, if looking for more cucumber flavor; blend cold water with chopped cucumber in a blender and strain out solids. Then you can still add the cucumber for a lovely garnish. (I recommend 2 cups cold water with 1 cup chopped cucumber if making multiples. That should mix 4 mojitos.)
