Royal Icing III

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
Fantastic. I used 1 egg white, 1 cup confectioner's sugar and 1/4 tsp cream of tartar and the results were most excellent on sugar cookies. The cream of tartar is essential for a smooth icing . For all of you looking for the perfect royal icing, you've now found it!

Beat and Bake Orange Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
This is a very good cake. To the batter I added the zest of one orange, 1 tsp of orange extract and 2oz of cream cheese (afraid it would be dry based on other reviews). As a result, this was a 5-star cake! The flavor was fabulous and it was soooooo moist! I baked it in a bundt pan generously sprayed with Baker's Joy for 45 minutes and it released beautifully. Just beautifully. I didn't use the frosting, instead I glazed it. I will make this again and again!

This worked out pretty well. I omitted the nuts and lemon juice and it was good :) I even submitted a photo :)

Old-World Rye Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
This really was great! Bought Organic Rye Flour at the market last night and wanted to find a good recipe for rye bread. This was it! I was worried about the cocoa powder at first but you can't taste it one bit. Before baking I brushed on a little bit of milk and sprinkled on some dry oats and it looks just like the loaf that's served at Outback Steakhouse... and tastes close to it as well. I halved the recipe since I was trying it out for the first time but will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing :)

Absolutely The Best Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
This really was fantastic! I squeezed in the juice of one lemon, added some capers... and then before putting it under the broiler I topped it with some freshly grated parmesan reggiano cheese. I'll definitely make this again!

Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
I made this with strawberries since that's what I had on hand. Made 1/4 of the recipe since too much of this in the freezer would just be too uber-tempting ;-) Fantastic end result!!!

Fig and Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2008
Having never eaten a fig before (and not knowing their flavor) I used only about 10 dried-then-halved figs. Also, I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts because that's what I had on hand. Fabulous flavor! After the chicken was cooked I removed the juice from the baking dish and poured it into a saucepan, added 1T brown sugar and reduced the sauce to thicken it. When I make this again, I'll double the amount of sauce because it was THAT good :)

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
I cut back on the salt but other than that I did not change a thing. Thanks for putting this out here, Bill, it's nice to have a truly flavorful seasoning mix that is not store bought and full of "stuff". Awesome!

Grilled Sea Bass

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
I found the flavors to be too mild... I suppose I just like my flavors to be more "front and center"

Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2008
Fantastic. I used boneless skinless breasts and thighs, added 1/8th cup brown sugar and 1/2T ginger. A major hit with my husband and kids (even my picky 10 y/o son who cleaned his plate!!). I will definitely make this again - not only did it taste fantastic but it made the whole house smell incredible!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
Incredibly ordinary, exceptionally flat cookies. After reading such an overwhelming number of outstanding ratings/reviews, I had high expectations. This recipe really did not work out for me. Only because it is so highly rated I will make it again and if it works out better next time I will definitely be sure to revise this review. EDITED: I've discovered the "problem" (as I see it) is this recipe calls for butter. Whenever I make a chocolate chip cookie using butter, it flattens out. I don't want a flat chocolate chip cookie, I want a chocolate chip cookie that has some height to it. The solution? I use Butter Flavor Crisco instead of real butter and as a result my cookies are not flat and they stay soft and chewy too. It has to do with the melting point of butter vs. the melting point of crisco. And don't freak about Crisco being unhealthy. Crisco has 50% less saturated fat than butter and Crisco has 0g trans fats. I still haven't made this recipe again and I probably now won't. I don't think the vanilla pudding added much... besides excess vanilla flavor.

Baked Applesauce

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
In a word... FABULOUS! I used 5 apples (2 Red Delicious and 3 Ambrosia), 5 tablespoons of Splenda, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/8 teaspoon ground clove and 1/3 of a freshly grated nutmeg nut along with a splash of vanilla extract. I checked it at the 30 minute mark and gave it a goooooood stir. When it was all baked (45 minutes) I gave it another gooooooo stir then used the immersion blender to make it smoother but left it rather chunky since that's the way I like it. Again, in a word... FABULOUS!

Spring Lime Tea Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
I found these to be rather lackluster in flavor even though I used gorgeous juicy limes right off my tree and followed the recipe exactly as written.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2008
Fantastic! I added a 1/2c creamy peanut butter and an additional 1/2c flour and these could not be more perfect. I didn't even chill the dough and these were downright fantastic!

Szechwan Shrimp

Excellent!!! I used a little over 1/2 pound of fresh shrimp since that's what I had... doubled the sauce... doubled the crushed red pepper (cuz I like it **spicy**)... added water chestnuts, bean sprouts, green pepper and onion (cuz I like my veggies)... and boy oh boy was this fantastic. Thanks so much for posting. I'll definitely make this again (and again... and again!!)
