Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2003
Crazily enough,this recipe is rated higher than the plain "Beer Bread" recipe which is also on this site, but I found it to be much less pleasing. I found that the whole wheat recipe was OK right out of the oven, but as it cooled it became more and more tough (could be because I used freshly ground whole wheat flour rather than regular bagged whole wheat flour)...I don't know, I was just looking for a great tasting beer bread so I saved both recipes and tried them both and found the regular "beer bread" to be much tastier and much easier to prepare than this whole wheat version.

Beer Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2003
I found this recipe to be excellent as well as being exceptionally easy to prepare! I, like a few other people who have rated this recipe, find that it tastes exactly like the "tastefully simple" beer bread mix and is just about as easy to prepare (can't let my neighbor know though as she is a tastefully simple rep.) Also, I have made the whole wheat beer bread which is also on this site and I didn't like that one at all...it got too firm and stale-like before the day was through.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2003
Totally "Delish" My husband daughter and son liked it very much. I'm not a bacon/cheese eater, so I only tasted a bit of the chicken (minus all of the embellishments) just to try it out. I thought it was quite tasty and plan to make it when we get company! Great Recipe!!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2003
I have a good chocolate chip cookie recipe of my own that seems to be a hit with everyone, so I felt compelled to challange it by making these cookies...I was totally impressed. They tasted as good as mine, but I liked the fact that they stayed soft (unlike mine). They even tasted fresh after several days! I will try this one out for my chocolate chip "groupies" to see what they think!

Greek Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2003
Totally Delightful! I specialize in doing specialty cakes from Birthdays to Weddings and I must say that I am extremely pleased with this recipe. It is so moist and light and down right delicious. I drizzled some thin icing/glaze over the top as well as a slight dusting of powdered sugar since the cake on its own was not as sweet as I usually like, but other than that it's perfect! Just a tip...Don't Throw Away Your Yolks!! I am so used to separating my eggs and discarding the yolks for making white cake and I wasn't paying attention when realized I had, by habit, thrown away the yolks instead of using them for the first part of the batter...Ughhh!

Greek Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2003
The recipe sounds tasty , no doubt, however, I think it was a bit on the bland side. When I made it it was very dry and I had to add an additional batch of the cream sauce. Perhaps actually layering, as with traditional lasagne, would be better as it would keep the cheeses from melting and "disappearing" with the rest of the ingredients....I don't know, I just think that all of the flavors were overpowered by the pasta...I may try again but add some diced red and green peppers as well and then try the traditional layering rather than casserole method.

Mardi Gras King Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2003
I made 2 of these...one for my daughter to take to school and one for home. As far as the dough goes...it was wonderful to work with. It baked well too. I thought that the finished product was a bit on the dry side though (perhaps spreading softened butter on the dough before sprinkling the sugar/nut mixture. Also, I thought it was a bit "yeasty" in flavor and smell...perhaps it was the type of dry yeast I used though?? I would definitely make it again with just a few "tweaks" to take care of the areas dryness and over yeasty flavor. Overall a good recipe though!

Luscious Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2001
This cake was average. I didn't care for it's texture...it was too crumbly and spongy (in my opinion much like a genoise). I was looking for a more moist, firm, dense cake...
