Mary's Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
Made this recipe for years and watched it deteriate over time. Problem: I was using the same jar of cream of tarter for the last 6 years. Buy some fresh cream of tarter everyone!!!!! and if you don't have almond extract remove a 1/2 of the flour and replace it with a 1/2 cup of Red Mill Almond flour (or grind your own almonds in a food processor). The almond flour gives it just the slightest meaty kind of a texture but the cookies are delicate (with or without the almond flour) and these are not good for shipping to Iraq or Afganistan

Fruity Fun Skewers

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
expensive but a great alternative to one of those edible arrangements. A box of strawberries, a honeydew, a cantelope, grapes, a pineapple ....pricy! but a beautiful addition to any table. Kids grabbed them before they reached for the cupcakes if you can believe it.

Braided Easter Egg Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
Not thrilled. I made it 3 times just to be sure I hadn't made a silly mistake but I came out rather consistently dry. Loaf 1: Had to add almost an extra cup of flour to get it dough to a kneading consistency. While it looked pretty but overcooked it was dry. Loaf 2: Worked with an incredibly sticky dough and cut back on the cooking time. Looked pretty but still was a tad tasteless and dry. Loaf 3: Gave up when I was kneading it and rolled the dough, poured 4 tablespoons of melted butter, a half a cup of sugar and 2 tsps of cinnamon , rolled it jelly roll style, formed the ring, cut slits on top and turned into a king cake....better, but I've had better king cakes.

Royal Icing III

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
Having worked in Gingerbread construction for many years I would say this is the standard 'Royal icing' recipe. To cement walls and roof tiles you want a firm icing. To create 'snow drifts' you'll want something softer. Think about where you're going to use the icing before you add all the sugar. It will be a little thick for piping with a small tip if you add all the sugar.

Key Lime Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
Cake disappeared immediately so there was no way to go back for a second opinion. It may call for more lime then it should but I think some limes are more tart then others.

Absolutely outstanding. Nice alternative to the typical salads you see on a buffet or at a barbeque.

Oatmeal Apricot Squares

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
I think perhaps a little cinnamon would help and if I swap out 1/3 of the flour for ground almonds I think I'd have a fairly nutritious little snack without changing the consistency.

Jalapeno Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2011
This recipe is straight out of Chef Paul Prudhommes Louisiana Kitchen cookbook . I recognized it right off the bat...right down to the size of the loaf pans. I had this bread at Chef Pauls restaurant in New Orleans and he apparently likes a nice soft dinner roll. Chef Paul RULES but I like a crispy crust. Baking this at a 475 temp with steam ...gives me a nice crispy crust but the inners are damp and uncooked. So I add the disclaimer...Do NOT try this at home. Either accept it as a soft bread or be prepared for a few near misses til you get it right.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
I read several reviews that said the batter was more doughlike. I think you folks forgot to put in the milk. The recipe tells you to put the egg and oil in a cup and a enough milk to measure 1 full cup. Batter was quite what I expected...NOT a dough. I filled 12 regular old cup cake pans and they were all a good size so I think making 8 they would have over flowed. An of course....after I popped them in the oven and was cleaning up I stared aghast at the bowl of blueberries I forgot to stir in...no sweat I pulled my tray out and stuck about 10 berries in each. No one was the wiser. Used all the topping on my 12 muffins. Would have to say this was more of dessert then a breakfast item ....Delicious but very sweet and the topping was kinda crunchy ...almost carameled...YUMMMMMMM. Next time I'll try to remember the blueberries in my blueberry muffins and I will cut back on the sugar unless I'm making these for a dessert buffet.

Berry Mallow Yam Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2013
This a better looking and tastier twist. It's almost like a yam/cranberry crisp. It looks festive and doesn't have. The uber sweet taste that is associated with the yam mallow side dish. Great for thanksgiving. Great for Christmas. I did not measure my marshmallow. I believe I used a handful or two in the photo.

Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
Perfect I used cod (it was wild caught in the USA and the tilapia was from some 3rd world industrial waste pool) cut into strips about 3/4 by 2 or 3 inches and it didn't fall apart on the grill. (My fear was that it would fall apart or fall thru the grill and we would be eating cabbage tacos instead). Way more cabbage then we needed. Anyone gotta good coleslaw recipe? I only marinated the fish for about an hour. I have to wonder - wouldn't sitting in lime juce for 6 hours turn fish into ceviche? 1 hour was plenty and if anyone says the fish was bland the must have skipped the spices and lime or have some kind of taste disorder. The fish by itself was terrific. The sauce by itself was great. Will make this again soon .
