Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
I LOVE homemade tea -- unfortunately restaurants rarely get this right. I usually use a six quart pan of water and 3 teabags (2 decaf, 1 caf) steeped for 4 minutes. the tea is light and not bitter at all. still, i love the idea of being able to drink stronger tea with the addition of the baking soda. I'm going to start carrying it in a baggie and try adding it to bitter restaurant tea. Thanks so much for this hint!

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2012
really nice frosting. using a kitchen aid really made it a snap. I goofed and added cocoa that makes hot chocolate -- and since it was sweetened with white sugar it left a little grit. I made up for it by adding a little coffee to replace the milk, and that made it amazing. I think I could have used the hot cocoa chocolate if I would have heated it up to melt the sugar first and then cooled it to use in the frosting. Very tasty!

Chicken Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
My version includes roasting a small chicken. I use the pan and the drippings to cook celery, onion and garlic, then add the neck, and the wings, and two cartons of broth for my soup. I add herb de provence for seasoning. Then I strain the broth, and add Wild Mushroom tortellini (or Agnolotti)and cook them in the broth and served with garlic toast or biscuits. Amazing.

Cinnamon Apple Syrup

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
I loved this recipe and served it tonight over vanilla ice cream for dessert. I used light brown sugar and thai cinnamon, which has a deeper, richer taste. Turned out amazing -- simple, quick and yummy.

Chicken in Tarragon Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
I made this tonight, though I oven roasted the chicken separately -- using only the juices for the sauce, plus some extra chicken broth. I also used half and half instead of cream, dry tarragon, and a little flour to thicken it. The sauce was delicious. I'll be using this recipe a lot. Thanks!

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
Recently moved to Vermont from the west coast and find that we are enjoying the cooler weather and the beautiful colors of the fall. Needed something hot and filling though, and this soup is fantastic. I didn't change much -- left out the basil, hot sauce -- doubled the recipe (to six servings) and added sour cream. Oh, and we used Cabots Seriously Sharp White Cheddar Cheese. If you haven't tried it, OMG! I do not typically like cheddar cheese, but this stuff is incredible -- especially in this soup. I'm freezing half of it (there's only 2 of us) and plan to puree it and add the half and half later. Probably before the weekend! Thanks for this great recipe!

Sausage-Stuffed Eggplant

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
I love eggplant, but my wife hates it, so when I make it I'm usually the only one who will eat it. Not with this recipe. It was so fantastic that she couldn't get over the fact that it was eggplant! Really, it tastes like an excellent Chicago deep dish pizza without the crust! And it only gets better the day after. Along with the original recipe, I sauted 1/2 onion and 1 lg clove garlic before adding the sausage. Then a pinch of basil, sage and oregano. I layered everything -- sauce, meat, a layer of sauted mushrooms and parmesian. Then nice big blobs of ricotta covered with mozzarella cheese. Then I mixed in 1/4 cup sauce with the remaining sausage, and topped it with parmesian. Baked for 25 minutes, then the last 5 minutes I added more mozzerella and baked until golden -- not burned. Fantastic. (I used a total of 3/4 cup of sauce since I don't like too much -- yum!)

Savory Kale, Cannellini Bean, and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
Great Soup! But I'm giving it 4 stars because the recipe timing should be flipped -- the kale needs to cook longer than 20 min and should be put in before the potatoes and beans or they become mushy and overcooked. (I used canned beans.) Just flip the last two instructions and make a great hearty soup. I also added a little parmesan cheese to each bowl before serving and also added beef kelbasa (sp?) when I added the beans and potatoes. Delicious!
