Chewy Caramel

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Chewy, caramelly deliciousness! I used this caramel for caramel apples (and the leftovers were used to dip a few chocolate sandwich cookies :-D. I too cooked mine a little bit longer (about 245F? My thermometer is a little off, so I use the cold water test. I cooked the caramel until it formed a firm ball that holds its shape on my finger, but can be squished).

Lemony Cucumbers

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
Wow! Unexpectedly delciouso! As suggested by another reviewer, I halved the celery seed and omitted the onion. I didn't feel like measuring the lemon juice, so I just used half a lemon (including the zest). I incresed the sugar by 1 tbsp cuz I like sweet. SO GOOD! My only tip: use good cucumbers. I used cucumbers from my neighbor's garden and they are good on their own, but this dressing makes them WOW!

Roasted Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
I followed this recipe using golden beets and it was delicious! I served the roasted beets chopped and added to brown rice (along with cumin) with the beet greens on the side. Delish!

Challah I

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
SO good! I halved the recipe, but kept the original amount of honey, so it would be a little sweeter. Result was probably the most delicious challah I have ever tried. Fantastic

Mama D's Italian Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
Very good classic bread. It tastes delicious right out the oven and is good as toast & on crusty grilled cheeses (my fave). The second time I didn't need to make so much bread so I scaled the recipe down to 1/3 of the original. As well, I substituted 1 cup of white flour for 1 cup of white whole wheat flour (King Arthur). Instead of misting the bread, I placed a pan of water at the bottom of the oven. And to get a thick crust I baked the bread in the oven in a preheated enameled cast iron pot (25 minutes covered, 10 minutes uncovered). The results were SUPERB! Would definately make it that way again. The resulting bread is denser because of the whole wheat flour and the cast iron pot method, but I like it. It still tastes good as grilled cheese, so I'm happy!

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Delicious! I followed another reviewer's advice and used half butter and half oil. I did the three kernel test with the oil and added the butter along with the sugar and kernels. This added a much better flavor than just the oil alone (I made two batches). Also, I learned (the hard way) that you really have to shake shake shake that pot while its popping or you will end up with toasty kettle corn (not good). I halved this recipe using a smaller pot and the results were fantastic! Enough to share with another (or eat by onesself...), Thanks for posting this Sue202!

Southern Sweet Potato Bread with Pecans

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2008
This bread was so delish! And what a great way of using up leftover mashed sweet potatoes. I'm not a fan of raisins so I replaced them with dried sweetened cranberries and I replaced the pecans with finely chopped walnuts. Also, I was out of eggs so I replaced the eggs with "flax seed eggs" (2 tbsp ground flax seed mixed with 6 tbs of hot water = 2 eggs). SO GOOD! I served this bread the next day warmed up with apple butter on top. I will definately be keeping this recipe in my apron pocket!

E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
Delicious and easy! I had to make breakfast quickly this morning and this recipe uses few ingredients and is easy to make. I dug out our forgotten Cream of Tartar (waay in the back of the spice cabinet) and boy was it worth it! This recipe comes together in a snap and my family loved it. This is definitely a keeper.
