Sugar Cookies VI

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2015
The brown sugar totally makes these. My husband claimed that these were the "least boring" sugar cookies he's ever had (especially compared to store-bought). Would definitely make again!

Scallops with White Wine Sauce II

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2015
Went easy on the lemon, but don't forget that a sauce will always taste too strong when you test it by itself. I thought the sauce was overly lemony, despite adding only a tbsp of juice, but it tasted great over pasta and sautéed veg. Nice and light and easy!

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2015
Made it with real whip instead, and added white chocolate chips and fresh strawberries to the top. If you don't have a trifle bowl, like me, try using wide mouth mason jars instead for personal-sized portions!

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2014
Legitimately fast and simple to make. Comes out looking great, and they were a massive hit with my husband. No question, will make again!

Chef John's Buttermilk Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2014
Doubled the spicing in the flour mixture for dredging out of personal preference. Makes a great-looking, fabulous-tasting fried chicken!

Sausage, Peppers, Onions, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2012
A bit bland for my liking. It wasn't bad, just not memorable. Could use some extra spicing to improve flavour, but probably would not make again.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
So easy; I use this for pizza or halve it to make one panzarotti. Only problem is that it puffs up a bit more than I would like for a crust, but you can't beat the time it takes to make.

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
Always a hit! I've thoroughly impressed my mother-in-law with this recipe. I recommend covering the pie crust with a tin foil circle after the first 15 minutes (when the temperature is lowered) to keep your crust from getting too dark.

Churros

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
I didn't have a pastry bag, so I simply rolled them out by hand and dropped the churros into the oil. Delicious!

Watermelon Lemonade

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
Such a great idea! I don't have a blender, so I gave the watermelon a rough chop, then put it in a large bowl and used a potato masher to get the juice out. I then strained it through a sieve, using the back of a spoon to make sure I got all the juice out. My only problem with the recipe is that the lemon juice got completely masked by the watermelon flavour; there was just no tang! I added another lemon's worth of juice to the mix, which seemed to help.

Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
Several people complained that the loaves didn't rise too much, which I experienced as well the first time I made this recipe. The second time, I tweaked it to 1.5x the original recipe (ie: 6 cups of flour instead of 4). This resulted in nearly perfectly-sized loaves. I also found the butter-sugar-cinnamon filling to be very runny, so I decreased the amount of butter used to turn it more into a rub than a liquid.

Fabulous French Loaves

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
Used this recipe to make bread for the very first time, and it turned out fabulously! The instructions walked me right through it and I didn't have a single problem, although I kept expecting something to go horribly wrong. Found that it rose incredibly well (doubled in 40 minutes) when left on the counter beside a pot simmering on the nearby stove. Served it with a homemade spaghetti sauce, and was a total hit with the guys!
