White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies IV

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
The is a wonderful recipe, but I, like others, did make some changes. I doubled the recipe, except the nuts and white chocolate. Instead of 1 cup butter, I used 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup Crisco. If too salty for you, either use unsalted nuts or use salted nuts and do not add any salt. I did not chop the chocolate and roughly chopped the nuts (almost like cutting the nuts in 1/4s). I baked 1 heaping tablespoon that I rolled in a ball on parchment paper for approx 8 min. until lightly browned. Let cool on pan 2-3 min., then move to a cooling rack. Perfect! By putting in to a ball, it doesn't run at all. Hint: when making that ball, keep the nuts inside the dough so that the nuts don't get too dark on the bottom.

Hot Crab and Jalapeno Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
Yum! I followed most of the recipe. I used roasted red pepper from the jar-not marinated with oil. Chopped it up and mixed all the ingredients in, except that I substituted celery salt for Old Bay and used 2 tbs. jalapeno - I like it hot. Not too oily, but has anyone thought of using panko bread crumbs on top?

Worked great and now I can make them for all my recipes for a lot cheaper. One question though. Can these get darker somehow? The ones I buy at the Italian bakery are a dark carame color.

Peanut Brittle - kicked up a notch

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2010
Would someone please try making this? I know it's begging, but when people ask for this recipe and try making it, they say it's just not the same. Thank you

Maple Walnut Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
Just to comment and this might help. The scones should not be crumbly. This is why I do not grate the butter. If you put the dough together with some of the butter in small pieces (not all), the butter will melt in baking and create a moist scone. One other thin, if you have the dough out longer than ezpected, put in the refrigerator again. That way the butter isn't all melted when you go to bake them.

A very flaky pie crust made easy

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
One major thing wrong with recipe. It actually calls for 1/4 c. ice water, not 1/2 c. Try using the butter flavored Cristco too. I liked it better for apple pie!

Curried Vegetables

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2012
Loved it! just the right amount of spice. My daughter had it with Pad Thai noodles. Twas a great side along with The Indian-style shrimp with yogurt sauce on the Cooking Light web-site. Both recipes call for cilantro, but I suppose you could use parsley. Won't have as much kick. Try to leave "as is." You will miss the spices.
