Sourdough Bread I

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
I think I had a bit of a weak starter, but the bread still came out fine. It browned awfully quickly, so I think I took it out a tad too early, but it was still okay. Even though I only used 1/4 cup of sugar, it was still a bit too sweet for my taste, but then again I have spoilt German taste buds when it comes to bread. ;) Overall, this is a nice and easy recipe which is suitable for sourdough newbies like me.

Slow Cooker Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
I had large pearl tapioca, but if worked perfectly with pre-soaking them in one of the cups of milk overnight. The flavour was a tad too eggy for my taste, and the pudding was a bit thicker than I like it, but those are things I can adjust in future. Other than that, thanks a bunch for the awesome idea, it works quite well in the slow cooker!

Chicken and Red Bell Pepper Salad Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
This was very easy to make, and since it is very basic, you can add whatever you like to spice it up a little bit. The perfect recipe to fill those hungry mouths if you don't have many ingredients at home.

Boiled Bagels

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
These are WONDERFUL, and this was the first time I ever made bagels! I replaced a little less than half the flour with whole wheat, so I needed 1/2 cup of flour less than stated in the recipe, and as other reviewers had suggested, I made 8 bagels instead of 12 and they look, smell, and taste PERFECT. I am completely happy. I boiled them in a deep, wide skillet. This way I fit 4 big bagels at once, which was very convenient. Thanks so much for the easy and awesome recipe!

Ann's Dirty Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
This is a wonderful basic recipe! I did it pretty much exactly as stated, only added some Worcester sauce later and a bit of grated cheese and the man loved it. :) I will definitely be making this again, and also experiment with the ingredients.

Cran-Dandy Cooler

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
This was awesome. Sweet, but awesome. The cranberry juice added the necessary balance to the sweetness.

Mock Champagne

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
This was a great deal too sweet for all of us. So for those who want something even remotely reminiscent of a champagne-like tartness and complexity, I do not recommend this. It is probably a good choice for a kid's party though.

Lusty Lime Virgin

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
This was great! Very sweet, but balanced out with tartness and the slightly funny taste of the diet coke - which was perfect though! Next time I think I might try and substitute the coke for something else, but I liked it as it was.

Authentic German Bread (Bauernbrot)

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
My starter is kind of weak I guess - even though it's all bubbly when warm - but I have tried this bread twice and it never rose sufficiently. I suppose I will have to try it with the starter in the recipe at one point, but the thing is, for people who already have a starter, this recipe lacks the quantity you will really need of it, and a lot of people may in fact already have a starter and are just looking for new and different recipes. Thus the 4 stars. The taste is good though, I think if it is nicely risen and moist, it will probably be just like good old German bread - provided you add some bread spice.

Lemon Pepper Cod

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
Simple, basic, foolproof - and easily customizable. I used lemon pepper plus a little bit of lemon juice. Everyone salted it on their plates for their own taste. It is a simple recipe and helps people who have absolutely no experience with fish. Everyone can do it, so it is a solid, basic guideline and thus a good recipe. 5 stars!

Mike's Mushroom Bread

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
I didn't really follow the instructions, but this recipe deserves 5 stars anyway, because it is an awesome idea and inspiration - and it is very simple. I used Raclette cheese and dehydrated minced onions, and also dehydrated diced garlic, because I didn't have very much at home. I sliced the bread into thick diagonal slices instead of cutting it in half, and piled the mixture upon every slice. It was absolutely wonderful, and my roommate and I loved it so much, we made it again the next day. Oh, I also added salt and pepper, and some oregano. YUM!

Cream Puffs

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
OH MY GODS!!! This is absolutely irresistible! It was a bit messy filling the dough into the pastry bag, because I had never done that before, but it was SO worth it. I also made one with a spoon, just to see how they would come out, but the ones made with the pastry bag are so beautiful in comparison, I'd rather go through the whole ordeal again. ;) The dough is a little hard to handle, because it is very sticky and pasty, but I think that just takes some practise. Other than that, this is a foolproof recipe and I didn't think making those delicious little treats would be so easy. I beat the dough with the dough hooks (rather than using the whisk adaptors) on my hand mixer, that way it was easier to scrape off the dough later. Oh, and I only used half the amount of filling, because I love the unfilled shells with stews and soups instead of rolls or bread - just as a tip. Considering the length of this review, I hope it was somewhat helpful. :)

Wild Rice Pecan Waffles

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
These are wonderful!! I used hazelnuts instead of pecans, and since I do not have a waffle iron, I made them into small pancakes, which worked excellently. I'm sure they would be at least as good, if not better, in the form of waffles. :) I served them with field greens and tomatoes, and my traditional family recipe salad dressing. A light but satisfying summer dish.

Spring Lime Tea Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2010
A little too sweet and soft for my taste, but they are a nice little treat with some strong tea. Very simple to make, and definitely the right treat for somebody who likes soft cookies. They do turn a little soggy due to the glazing though.

Spritz Cookies II

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
I bought a cookie press in a thrift store a while ago, and researched on the internet for spritz cookie recipes. I read a lot in forums about how cookie presses suck in general and are complicated to use, how the dough sticks to the cookie press but not to the sheet, and so on. However, using this recipe for my first time with the cookie press, I have no idea what all those people did wrong, but I bet it was that they used the wrong recipe. This was fantastically fast and easy, and absolutely no hassle whatsoever. Using the cookie press was lots of fun with this recipe and I can’t wait to do it again!

Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
This is a quick and easy recipe if you have a microwave (for the butter and milk)! I only omitted the vanilla, since I didn’t have any. I also don’t have a waffle iron, so I made fat little pancake triangles in the sandwich maker! It works really well, and they are tasty and fully cooked through, despite the thickness. I like that these are not too sweet, so you can add the condiment of your choice. I am certainly going to be making these again, hopefully one day with a waffle iron. ;)

German Baby

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2010
This is a great basic recipe! I made it this morning, and it was quick, easy, and yummy. The only thing I will try next time is adding a wee bit more flour, as it was rather eggy, and some salt/sugar or maybe even some dried herbs for flavour, as this is pretty bland. At the same time, it still deserves 5 stars because it works out, and allows for creative changes according to your personal taste. I will be making this again.

Very Popular Bubble Tea

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
As others have suggested, I cooked the tapioca for about 30 minutes. The thing was, I should have stirred more, because a layer of tapioca pearls got stuck to the bottom of the pot, and could easily have burned and ruined the taste. So stir, people!! Anyway, this works, it’s awesome for homemade bubble tea! I love the taste, I love the bubbles! Oh, one more thing! I only used like 3-4 ice cubes. That’s enough to chill the beverage to my liking.
