Cheeseburger Soup I

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
Good solid soup recipe. Made as directed with two alterations. Omitted celery and used goose stock in place of chicken since that's what I had on hand. Overall, a decent recipe if a bit too traditionally Yankee bland for my family's taste buds. Will definitely be playing with the recipe in the future. For anyone having trouble with the soup being too thin: let it cool slightly before serving. Cheese thickens as it cools, so simply turn the heat down for a few minutes to cool and serve when warm- not piping hot. If still too thin at that point, you can try adding a slurry of flour/cornstarch and water -or- simply reduce it down if you have the time. Next time, add less liquid or more potatoes. Again, an average soup recipe that works as a decent meal.

Homemade Apple Cider

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
Great recipe and very simple to do. After simmering I double strained the cider with a mesh strainer and than again with cheesecloth. After that I simmered again for an hour or so. I doubled the amount of apples (had a lot to use) and should have at least a gallon of cider. For everyone who is reporting less than a quart yield, I suggest reducing boiling time to 10-15mins and allow to simmer for the remainder. Also, make sure you're adding enough water. I pressed down on the apples while adding water to make sure I had good coverage.

French Herb Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
Excellent recipe and my new favorite for making french bread. I have trouble mixing and kneading heavy dough, so I let my bread machine do the work with the dough cycle. Only other change I made was to use Lemon Juice rather than vinegar to clot the milk since I find the vinegar flavor will sometimes come out in the bread. Great recipe, thanks for sharing it with us.

Perfect Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
Excellent recipe and super simple. I was very surprised at how quickly it set as well- less than the given time at medium heat on my electric range.

Irish Tea Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
Great recipe! I made this for St. Patrick's Day this year and served it with sweet cream and strawberries- best cake I've made! I had some egg whites left over from making mousse and didn't want to just toss the perfectly good egg whites- so I whipped to them into soft peaks and folded them into the batter. I noticed some reviewers commenting that they had found the cake heavy or dense- try folding in some soft peak whipped egg whites. End result was light and spongy- perfect!

Lemon-Lime Mousse

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
Very tart and smooth recipe- excellent dessert for summer! Only substitution I used was to whip heavy cream instead of whipping cream- its what I had on hand and came out great.
