Ciabatta

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
Sponge: The water/flour ratio was a little off; due to high altitude. Had to adjust to 2/3 c. warm water to 1 c. flour. Didn't get alot of CO2 action (large bubbles/holes) but got a few; the texture however was awesome. Crispy, chewy and so yummy.

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
Not a dead ringer for the "munchkin", but darn close. Simple recipe, with basic pantry ingredients; how can you go wrong? Kids loved 'em. Thanks for sharing.

Blueberry Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
I used blueberries, blackberries and raspberries; which was a wonderful combination in these bars. I would have given 5 stars, but I found the crumb topping too dry and lacking flavor. Next time I will substitute butter for the shortening. Very easy to make; recipe is a keeper.

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
Very melt in your mouth, but dough was extremely difficult to work with. Too sticky to drop, so I opted to put the dough in a round cake pan for petticoat tails. Even with this option, it was very hard to get the top smooth because it was so sticky. Small price to pay for flavor and texture though...

Children's Gingerbread House

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Good recipe; held together well. The royal icing recipe is very strong mortar and couldn't be more simple to make. We crumbled butterscotch candies and filled the window openings prior to cooking; this made very realistic looking windows. For high altitude cooking--increase baking time by at least 4 minutes and for the icing; it was 3 egg whites to 5 cups of powdered sugar. Please see uploaded photo/girl with blue shirt on right side of photo.

Canned Apple Pie Filling

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
Great recipe. Took the advice of other cooks--I doubled the cinnamon and nutmeg; also added 1/4 tsp. ginger and cloves. Instead of using the lemon juice in the syrup; I used it when I was preparing the apples to keep them from turning brown. I also had a little difficulty with the lids not sealing, but this has nothing to do with the recipe. Just remember to leave headspace in the jar. The volume in the jar will actually increase as the apples cook and release their liquid when in the water bath, if you have no room the lids will not seal. UPDATE: 11/9/09--I have used this apple pie filling in an apple pie and also apple crisp--very good fresh flavor! For those of you who are skeptics about using corn starch in a canning recipe in that it would somehow alter the ph level==have no fear, just follow standard canning protocol by using sterilized jars and processing as long as the recipe indicates; you will have no problems.
