German Brotchen Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
I am German and a Broetchen lover, so I had high hopes for this recipe. I made only half of the recipe, but otherwise followed it. It was a lot f work! The texture and taste turned out pretty good, and quite German, but they don't look very German and you have to leave them in the oven until they are dark to get them to be "knusprig" (=crunchy). I took my first batch out of the oven when it had the golden color (20 min) but they were too soft. The second batch I left in 23 min and they turned out much nicer. Not sure if I'll make them again (they were a lot of work, and similar to the take and bake ones from my grocery store).

Margaritas

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
Usually I make "original" margaritas with freshly squeezed lime juice, but needed something quicker for a party. I was glad I picked this recipe! It was so easy and the margaritas are wonderful!!! I did not fill the blender with ice all the way to the top with the first batch (was afraid it would overflow), and the margaritas were too strong. The following batches were perfect. Recommend making before the guests arrive (especially if your blender is really loud), put in a plastic jug and put in the ice in your beverage tub. It keeps better than you would expect. Make sure you buy enough limeade! Would recommend to calculate 1 batch per every 4 guests, more if there are no other beverages (we used up 4 batches for 18 people, despite offering also wine, beer, and non-alcoholic drinks)
