Marzipan Christmas Kringle (Juleskringle)

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
My family loves marzipan things, so I decided to try this last Christmas. It was a huge hit, and now I'm back this year to make it again! I wasn't able to find almond paste last year, so I made my own which was VERY time consuming. So glad I found a can this year! The nice thing about this recipe is the tube can be shaped into something other than a ring. Last year I made a heart, not sure what I'll do this year, I may attempt a snowflake. I did make mine wider, about 3-4".

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
Wow, they weren't kidding when they said fluffy pancakes! This recipe is a keeper. I did doctor it a bit to make it more healthy - I tripled the recipe, then used 1c whole white wheat, 3/4c unbleached, and 1/2c of wheat bran. I also lowered the sugar (used about 3 T in a tripled batch). They weren't heavy at all, but really filled us up!

Nana's Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
We found this sauce to really taste heavily of ketchup, it took a lot of doctoring before I was ready to use it on my chicken (cooked in the crock pot). I will have to keep looking.

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
This recipe is just what I have been looking for! I have tried many yellow cake recipes, and this one came out far ahead of the rest. I used whole eggs instead of yolks because I didn't have a use for the whites, and they don't freeze well by themselves. The batter was so fluffy and light, I couldn't believe it! The cake came out delicious, with a light and delicate crumb. Perfect. The tricks are sifting twice, creaming the butter for a long time (3-5 minutes), and mixing well after each egg or egg yolk. It did take longer to bake than I had thought, but I had done a 1.5x recipe and was baking in a deeper pan (for shaping, I used it for a castle cake). When it's lightly browned on top, and a toothpick in the center comes out clean, it's done. I HIGHLY recommend an over thermometer - I have never had an oven that cooks at the exact temperature you set it too.
