Red Raspberry Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2015
I needed a good raspberry vinaigrette for my dinner party, and was pretty sure I had a jar of seedless raspberry jam. When it came time, I found out I was wrong. However, I did have a jar of apricot jam, so I used that. I got numerous compliments on this dressing, it really was easy and fabulous. Keeper!

Creme Brulee II

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
Recipe needs a few adjustments. I agree with the folks who say add one more egg yolk. Also, the cooking time is WAY off. I'd say I ended up leaving them for about 50 minutes before they were set. All in all, though, it was delicious. UPDATE: I’ve made this recipe roughly a dozen times with very good results, though I stand by it needing a longer cooking time. I recently made it with the quantities verbatim, for my husband’s colleagues. It was so good, one man ate FOUR servings. I think all the hubbub about egg yolks is due to large eggs vs. not-large eggs. Probably 9 times it turned out fine with three yolks. After switching to organic eggs, though, I found out they are not consistently sized the way other eggs are. It would be nice to come up with a weight for the yolks to take away the guesswork, but I’ll probably go with 4-5 yolks in the future.

Scrumptious Frosted Fudgy Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
The recipe sounded great, but I wanted to take into account the few comments where people said the brownies turn out too rich or too "dark." I whisked a teaspoon of baking powder and a half-teaspoon of salt into the flour before adding it to the chocolate mixture, and they came out just about perfect, the way I like them. The baking powder makes them cakier, and the salt cuts the sweetness just a little. Next time I will add between 1/2 and 3/4 teaspoon of the baking powder, because I do like them on the fudgy side. ALSO - seemed like baking the recipe in a 9 x 13 pan would make them too thick, so I made them in a (roughly) 12 x 16 bar cookie pan I have. They were the perfect thickness, and it made about four dozen 1+1/2-inch squares.
