Mashed Potato Cakes

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
These were AWESOME! After reading the reviews, and having leftover potatoes from Thanksgiving I used the remaining green onions from Tday, the remaining fresh parsley, gourmet seasoned salt, fresh ground pepper (instead of onion, salt pepper and hot sauce in rcp.) Everything else was the same, added 1/2 c sharp cheddar cheese and fried in pan in olive oil. A+++ a keeper. I'd also like to say. . . if it's a good recipe, rate it as such, personal preference should make no difference in the recipe. I too, prefer them fried, but baked is healtier, and I will probably try that also. Thanks for the great recipe !!

Fresh Yeast Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
This is a GREAT recipe!! I used two pkg of active dry yeast and started in one cup warm water with a tsp of sugar. I also added 1/4 c. honey, and 1/2 c. safflower oil instead of the shortening. I whisked in 7 cups, then stirred and stirred. I made three large loaves and 6 mini loaves, for those times when a tiny sandwich is just right :). Thanks!!

These are soooooo good. This was the first time I ever made meatballs. I always just threw the mix in a casserole and made meat loaf. My son would now rather have meat ball. Thanks!!!

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2009
This was our salad tonight, Christmas Eve. It was AWESOME and I will be making it again. I used Romaine (personal preference) and doubled the dressing (not the oil, it was fine). My fellow diners didn't want avocado, but I did, so just added some to mine. It might even be my favorite salad (since I can make it at home). If you like these ingredients, you will LOVE this salad. Thank you!

Caramel Liqueur

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
AWESOME!! I didn't want to go out and the only alcohol I had on New Years Eve was about a 1/3 of a bottle of Amber Brandy but I did have a can of sweetened condensed milk. I was skeptical (and a little scared) but it worked wonderfully. I peeled off the paper and boiled the can in a 3 qt. covered Farberware pan covered with water for 2 hrs and 45 mins. It was perfect. It did take some mixing to combine the brandy with the caramel. Very smooth. Looking forward to trying it again with spiced rum, also in my coffee. Happy New Year!

Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
Delicious! Only changes made by necessity and health. Used honey mustard (all I had) bread crumbs from homemade bread, seasoned with paprika, onion powder and a dash of garlic powder, olive oil for butter, and probably only 2 T. GREAT dish!

Home-Style Brown Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
Very Good! I used a Gourmet Wild Rice Blend cooked in chicken broth. Green Peas instead of chickpeas and I didn't have cashews (darn it). Will make many times.

Simple Carnitas

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
oh - my - merciful - heavens. Here's what happened. I got a deal on a bone - in shoulder. Over twelve lbs. I really do not like to fool with great big pieces of meat. Trust me, it was worth it. It's probably 30 mins away from removing from the oven. My daughter and I couldn't resist (I mean, the SMELL is amazing) So when I went to turn it, we picked off some done parts and threw them in the skillet with onions and peppers. We ate this on homemade tortillas with cheese. (I'm stuffed) It will have taken it 6 hrs. and 15 minutes at 325. I cut the yucky stuff off. Cut the oranges, onion and 1 lime in the bottom of my roasting pan ( I would have thrown the bay leaves in here, but I didn't have any.) I made a rub of the kosher salt (and yes, there is a huge difference. It will be too salty with table salt), cumin, garlic and peppercorns. I turned it a couple of hours after sticking it in. Before it all fell apart, I got the fruit and most of the onion and pepper corns out of the broth and added another cup of water. It wasn't quite totally off the bone last time I checked, but it had been shredded into the flavorful broth and I'm looking forward to enjoying this for quite awhile. Thanks, Ken. AWESOME recipe.

Home Made Mozzarella Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
I was Nervous Nelly about trying this. AND when I did it, I thought I'd over stirred because my curd was small. So I did my gallon of milk in two batches, the first, the curd that I could get out with the skimmer, heated, kneaded and it got glossy and stretchy. The second I drained the whey through a towel and it TOO got glossy and stretchy. It's very GOOD and EASY!! I'm going to do it again tomorrow, then make pizza :) I'm also looking forward to using the whey. I've frozen it in freezer bags. I think it could be mixed with powdered milk or buttermilk and used in recipes. Thanks so much Baking Nana!! I feel so accomplished!!

Fabulous Focaccia

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
Just made these this morning. AWESOME!! I made the mozzarella last night, so I have WHEY!! I used whey (with a little bit of honey to counter the acid) instead of the water called for in the recipe (not the poolish). I DO NOT have a KA and found I just could not stir in all the flour ( I was at least a cup shy). I oiled my pans WELL! It does like oil. Put Asiago on top before baking. That big one in front is nearly GONE!! My kids can't stop eating it. Very good!! Thanks again Baking Nana!!

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
Amazing indeed! Snowed it and this came up in the RE. . . couldn't hurt to try it. Delicious. I used the peeler, sprayed the plate and potatos with olive oil. The first batch took 3 mins. in my microwave, the second 2.30 mins. That was where it stayed until the potato was gone. Gonna do it again, try some spices :)

Imitation Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
I like this recipe. It's very versatile. I made it for a friend, left out the thyme and hot sauce and added paprika, and used less ketsup (she's diabetic) added alittle liquid smoke and used sharp cheddar instead of the mozzarella. After its refrigerated, it slices nicely and reheats well for a sandwich.

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
I used Kosher salt, a canola/soy oil, 4 cups whole wheat flour, and kneaded in about a cup and a half of all purpose flour. I will use this recipe often. Very good bread (I painted butter on top when it came out of the oven).
