Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
I didn't have bread maker so I had to change the recipe... This is what I did: 1. I used warm milk with sugar to dissolve the yeast 2. I do not use margarine, since it is super unhealthy (yes, it is better to use butter) 3. I run out of sugar and had to use some brown sugar in the dough Despite all these changes and my worries, these turned out great! Good luck!

Jalapeno Snacks

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
I had to change the recipe a little bit, because we do not eat bacon, so I just left it out. It turned out great! and it could pass as vegetarian dish now :) I didn't have any Ranch dressing, so I skipped this one too. I did however substitute garlic powder for the frozen minced garlic by Dorot (which is pretty close to the fresh minced one) - I think it made a great twist to the recipe... I would advice to try it... Beside that - we LOVED it!!! Thank you for sharing :)

Rainbow Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
I prepared it yesterday for a party - and everyone loved it! it looked so nice and fun. I used reviews and did one at the time, let it sit for 40-60 min and added another layer. I used grape jello too - and didn't like it. There was 2-years old kid at the party- and she asked for second :) We had the "argument" if it is better to keep all layers without the milk. Still didn't decide...

Easy Herb Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
Made a great turkey! Was my first and I was very nervous about it, so I followed the recipe to the T (I did put the spices under the skin). I added some paprika on top of the "bird" for the color and turned my oven for 400F for a couple of minutes to "brown" it a bit. It was very tasty. :)

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
I loved the recipe – and its simplicity :) (I did use food processor!) I really wanted some savory scones (like some I tried at a nice coffee shop) This is what I did for the savory ones: I halved the recipe, put the dry ingredients (I omitted the sugar) in the food processor, added butter and run the food processor. I added (all very approximate, since I used my eye and didn’t think to measure it!) ½ tsp Italian seasoning, ¼ tsp rosemary and 1/4 tsp basil, 2 TBSP mozzarella and some parmesan cheese and run the food processor again. I mixed 1 egg with ½ cup of sour cream and spooned about 2/3 of it to the food processor, I added as much as I needed to make the dough to form. I baked these on lower temp (350F) for about 20 min. Turned really well! I did increase the salt a bit and I feel that if you are using parmesan, you shouldn’t increase salt. All in all – the recipe really helped me to created really good savory scones! I actually did the sweet ones too, following the exact instructions – these were perfect, we loved them!

Muffin Frittatas

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2010
The only small issue I had with those - was taking them out of the pan... But I slided the knife around the edges and could take them easily after that... Beside that - the taste was very nice, very light. Will definitely do again, especially if I have guests (after taking these out - they look very pretty)

Peach Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
We loved it, didn't change the recipe at all, it was a little bit runny, but I think if I let it sit longer it won't be. The taste was great!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2010
We loved it! House smelled amazing for long time and couldn't wait to eat this one! I read reviews and made some changes, but very minor ones: 1. I used cubes and water instead of broth (this is what I had) 2. I added 1/2 cup of red wine but I did not brown the meat 2. I increased garlic, because we love it 3. i was almost out of paprika so I added hot paprika and cayenne pepper - it turned out with a tiny bit of spicy flavor - which is perfect for us. Overall - we absolutely loved it! Very recommended...

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
I used fresh basil and cooked it on the stove for 5-7 min. It was great. i used the original amount of cayenne pepper (doubled it since I had not pepper flakes) and it had a very nice spicy kick to it. I reduced the amount of honey, but ended adding some more. So as a conclusion, I wouldn't change a thing (aside of adding fresh herbs if you have these). It is spicy, s take it into account.

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: May 27, 2011
I'm from Israel and a good pita is a MUST! I read a bunch of Israeli websites and tried to get that "home" style pita I'm used to. Things I changed according to other websites: I added a bit more water. The dough should be very sticky. I added more flour when I worked with it, but that was mostly for my hands. I used the whole (or almost the whole) packet of the dry active yeasts. Let it rise for 1.5 hours, then made balls and let these rise for 40 min. The biggest difference I found that the best pitas were the one i just flattened with my hands and didn't use the roll pin. Real pitas have to be "meaty" and have a lot of dough and not thin :) good luck!

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
Actually my husband is the one who made these, he is the pancake master in our house. He followed the recipe exactly, no changes - and it turned out amazing! Fluffy and light and absolutely great. We did use the fresh pumpkin I pureed (I baked the pie pumpkin on 350F until it was tender, scooped it out and mushed it util it had puree consistency) Absolutely worth trying!

Raspberry Lemon Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
We loved these! I used vanilla fat free yogurt (this is what I had) and fresh raspberries - and it turned out perfect! very light and juicy. These looked very "pale" and I was a little bit scared they are not done yet - but 17 min was perfect time!

Blackberry Puff Pastry Tarts

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
Made these yesterday, turned out great! My hubby said - it is "just like from a bakery" :) I followed the recipe exactly. These were great the next day, didn't warm them, just kept them in the plastic container over night.
