Sparkling Holiday Jam

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
I am guilty of modifying the recipe a fair deal because I didn't think it was quite festive enough as is. I used two 12oz bags of fresh cranberries and 2lbs of frozen whole strawberries. I also added the zest and juice of one lemon and several healthy dashes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. I only added about 5-6 cups of sugar and it turned out tart and delicious. Also, don't waste your time chopping anything, the heat will break down all the fruit and it will be nice and chunky and rustic looking. Enjoy!

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
I subbed whiskey for brandy and it turned out fine. You could probably use vanilla instead, but the brandy/whiskey gives it a fantastic flavor.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
These cookies are delicious as is, but if you like more flavor add more spice (a little of allspice/ginger does the trick). I usually add cinnamon and a dash of vanilla to the glaze as well. Will store for a few days out on the counter quite nicely.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
This is a great base recipe for lentil soup. I used half vegetable broth and half water, doubled the spices, and added cumin, paprika, and some hot sauce. I also used double the veggies. It's really easy to add your own flair to this soup. Also freezes well.

Spinach, Egg, and Pancetta with Linguine

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
I debated giving this 4 stars, but it's so easy to make, so 5 it is. I have made this twice, once true to the original recipe and once with some modifications. The original recipe is good, but it lacks some flavor. I sauteed some halved cherry tomatoes and some garlic with the rest of the sauce mixture, and added some fresh mozzarella, and it was delicious

Chocolate Fudge Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
If you love hot fudge, you will love this frosting! It's delicious. I added about a 1/4 cup more of powdered sugar just to thicken it up a bit. I'm not sure that it would pipe well, but it may work if you stiffen it up. My new go-to chocolate frosting.

Lemon-Cream Cheese Cupcakes

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
These cupcakes were delicious! Based on the other reviews I only cooked them for 18 minutes and they came out perfect. I also added some fresh lemon juice to the batter. As for the icing, I used more powdered sugar, about a 1/4 cup more. I also added the rest of the juice from the lemon to make it extra tangy. The frosting turned out nice and thick.

German Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
I left out the raisins because I just don't care for them. These are the easiest cookies to make and always come out with the perfect chewiness. I have made them 3 times already, they are great!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
I left out the red wine and added spinach and celery. I also used hot sausage and threw in a little hot sauce. It was absolutely delicious! This is a great meal for a cold day.
