Cream of Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
My first attempt at creamy-squash-type soup, and it was great! It was kind of an impromptu thing, basically I had leftover pumpkin after baking a "Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake" from this site, and looked up a soup for fun. I didn't have a lot of ingredients (no onions or heavy cream), but added minced garlic and just used milk instead, and it was nice and simple. Followed other comments to add brown sugar too, and it turned out really good. Personally, I might like it a little thicker, probably where the heavy cream comes in.

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
Very good, but not quite great. With about a billion Christmas cookie recipes out there, there is tough competition though. On the plus side, with the powdered sugar and all, these are really easy to make look really good - less effort for a good impression!

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
Excellent! This is an amazing twist on traditional pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving dessert, and a great balance if you have family members who aren't so hot on the pumpkin-y ness of regular pie.

PHILADELPHIA Smarter Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
To make this even easier, I used the garlic herb variety of the cream cheese spread. Basically you boil the broth, then add the cream cheese and parmesan, simmer down a bit, and done!

The Most Incredible Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
Easy "cheating" way: use Garlic Herb Cream Cheese instead. Spread it on your bread, top with parmesan and oil as indicated, broil and you're good to go.

Spaetzle I

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
This recipe was a good jumping off point. My husband's mother is Swabian, so I had some big shoes to fill the first time I made Spaetzle. As others suggested, I used milk instead of water, but didn't really measure how much (added splash by splash till the hubby said it "looked right"). Nice and easy, but rewarding!

Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
Thank you! I'd only ever made Bisquik dumplings for my soup before, and I'm so glad I found a recipe that has liberated me, haha. Recently I made this as a topping for individual chicken-pot-pies (was feeling too lazy to make a proper crust), and it turned out wonderfully!

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
Maybe it's because I didn't have molasses and used honey and a little brown sugar instead, but this recipe was just alright. An OK starting place if you are feeling holiday-ish. I think if I tried again (other than wanting to have molasses) I'll follow the advice of others and at least double the spices.

Real Italian Calzones

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
Awesome! My husband LOVES when I make these. I usually make a double-sized batch of the dough and freeze it to have on hand whenever we want. Also a fun thing is I divide the basic insides (chicken, cheeses) into individual bowls so we can add what we like separately (mushrooms for me, pesto for him). They are VERY big, though. I keep making them earlier and earlier so we can eat half of ours for dinner and the other half as a late night snack! I gave the recipe to my mom to cook for her, dad, and my younger brother and told her to just divide in 3, don't make more. Overall, a wonderful recipe!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
Deserving of a rare 5-star rating from me, because this recipe works "as is", does just what you want it to do, and tastes great. I love baking bread, and while I have no problems kneading dough, this happily brought pizza back into the "what is something quick and easy for dinner" category, instead of having to plan for rising time. It really can be done in 30 minutes, which from my experience is basically the same as frozen or delivery, but with the goodness of homemade, flexibility of toppings, and all those other wonderful things that come with baking! Don't be scared, go for it!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
Very good, very easy, if you are ready to make the leap into the world of good old fashioned kneaded homemade bread, this would be a great place to start!

Honey White Loaves

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2010
A delicious recipe! I made it into rolls, and wow! To make it even a little more yummy, I added just about a tablespoon brown sugar. Hubby loved it.

Warm Blue Cheese Dip with Garlic and Bacon

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
This recipe is delicious! AND great as it is. Might be a little salty for some people, but if you're looking at a recipe for blue cheese and bacon, you shouldn't kid yourself, haha. BONUS: I took a small portion of my dip and stuffed it in some mushroom caps, baking for 10-15 minutes, AWESOME!

Quick Gnocchi

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
Very good, very easy. When I made these, it didn't take anywhere near 1.5 cups flour (I used maybe 1/2 c., but could have used a little more), so don't be afraid to try again and tweak it to get it just right.

Supreme Strawberry Topping

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
Simple and delicious! I was looking for something to marble into my cheesecake, and this was perfect! I didn't have a blender, and don't like fruit chunks, so I spooned the mixture into a fine sieve and pushed through with a spoon - it got all the syrupy part through and I just had to scoop out a small amount of the leftover pulp. EDIT: I've also used this recipe for raspberries and blueberries, and worked just as great every time! Don't be afraid to up the sugar a little if you are buying tart off-season fruit.

Strawberry Cheesecake Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
These were nice for something different, and would be the sort of thing to impress at bake sales/family gatherings, though they aren't quite as hard as they seem. The dough is a little sticky to work with, but the cream cheese/strawberry middle is delicious! I used fresh strawberries via the *Supreme Strawberry Topping* recipe from this site. I could almost imagine mixing blueberries into the batter also for a Fourth of July patriotic treat!

Honey-Oat Pan Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
These rolls were great! Not too sweet, and what more can you want than honey, oats, and wheat? However, I don't know what universe gets 24 rolls out of this recipe - maybe I just make huge rolls, but I only made 12 from a batch, so don't be afraid to double the recipe if you are feeding a large hungry family!

Perfect Lemon Curd

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
This was exactly what I was looking for - like lemonade but goopy, haha! I might have been a *little* generous about the sugar, I didn't want to risk puckering. Very good directions in the comments to help the process go easier, I had never had to deal with tempering eggs before, and this turned out perfectly the first attempt!

Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
My first time cooking lamb, and it came out pretty good. I think maybe a little overcooked, but that would be user error. I really liked this marinade because of how well it stayed on the meat, some marinades are so watery that most drips off and is wasted. I made *Rosemary Red Potatoes* off this site as a side dish, and it was a perfect compliment! I'd also recommend lining your pan with foil - it makes clean up so much easier.

Rosemary Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
Nice n' easy recipe that is a pretty compliment to meals. A great step up to graduate from mashed potatoes. I cooked these as a side to *Roast Leg of Lamb with Rosemary* and just tossed em on the rack with the lamb. Mine cooked for more like 35-40 minutes though to get tender enough.
