Cinnamon Syrup

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2011
I added a pinch of salt that I always add to anything sweet, added less white and more brown sugar, and a 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract because it always enhances the aroma for me. I am glad someone had an idea for a syrup that doesn't contain high fructose corn syrup.Very nice indeed!

Best zucchini bread I have tasted. Make sure to double on the zucchini and nuts as some have suggested. You should really try this one!

Really, Truly Gorgeous Dried Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
My grandmother added some spices that really enhanced the flavors and made the whole house smell divine: She would add a few sticks of cinnamon, 2-3 cloves and sometimes when available- 2-3 crushed cardamom pods with seeds while simmering. She served it hot in winter and fall and called it "hot fruit compote". We would top our ice cream with it, and when cold we would top it on cottage cheese. and dip with plain or graham crackers. She did not add nuts or cranberries to it, I think that is a good idea Pixie!.- Thanks for reminding me of this recipe I haven't made it for years.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
I have made this recipe like how many times since 2009? I can't remember why I never left a review maybe because I was so excited about the results! ---I increase the cumin to 1/2 Tbsp and also add 1/4 tsp garam masala, it rocks. This is is my go to recipe for beans, refried or not. Thank you ChefClaude!

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2011
I did not have sour cream so I added an equal amount of plain yogurt and an extra 1/2 tsp of baking soda to adjust. I had homemade candied orange peel that I chopped and added instead of the raisins. I followed CalJane's lead and used the food processor, super easy! The house smelled like heaven. I loved these scones! they were very simple, flakey and delicious. I will be making this again and again.-Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Sweet Candied Orange and Lemon Peel

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
Here are tips to making excellent peels: Boil the peels 3-4 times each for 5 minutes: you don't want the texture to be mushy. Drain and rinse after each boil. Simmer the peels in the sugar syrup for approximately an hour till the peels are translucent. I would not recommend doing the lemon and orange together I would do that separately. once you strain the syrup from the peels, save the syrup adjust sweetness and add to iced tea. DO NOT roll the peels in sugar while they are hot, they will be clumpy and use up extra sugar that will fall off. let them cool for about an hour and roll in sugar. let dry ( takes a day or two) and you can keep them in an airtight container for weeks.( You can still use them for baking after a few hours of drying.)

Olivier Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
My mom's version: she uses leftover chicken, turkey or ham(smoked is awesome!), adds a tablespoon of lemon juice and a raw shredded carrot. Canned peas are OK but she uses frozen-they cook in minutes. We do not use onions, it will take a strong overpowering onion smell and taste, especially if you're planning to keep the leftovers for a while in the fridge. Best if chilled over night to let the flavors blend:you can really taste the difference. Store in air tight containers and it will last for a week in the fridge. (DOES NOT freeze well) Great as a sandwich spread or side dish. your favorite chicken wing or fried chicken dish will go well with it. :)--For those who rated the recipe without reading the directions: tomatoes are NOT used in the recipe, they are only the garnish--

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
I would give this more stars if I could!. I have been making recipes off of websites for years without rating them,I just HAD to rate this one! I used all purpose flour because I didn't have any whole wheat, I cut the salt by half as reviewers had suggested. I used dos exis beer, and very old expired baking powder because that was all my bf had. Poured 2 Tablespoons of melted butter on top ONLY, it totally covered it. I was very skeptical about the results. I was soooo wrong in an extremely yummy way! My boyfriend and I ate it hot right out of the oven! Made some more the next day because it didn't last. The consistency of the bread was as of zuchini or banana bread when hot and it was crusty on top. It was great! had it with butter and honey. Next time will cut out the suger, and try rosemary and olive oil!- thanks Blchrisman for this wonderful recipe. I am officially addicted!
