Real Sopapillas

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2013
I did not see it mentioned, but the secret to having a puffy hollow sopapilla is to push it under the hot oil or to spoon hot oil over the top. If it is just laying on top of the oil, it will be flat instead of puffy.

Olive-Cucumber Finger Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
Made these for a church reception. I used colored bread in pink, yellow, and green ordered from a bakery. I used mini-cucumbers and a small circle cutter just larger than the cucumber slices to cut the bread. I piped the spread onto the bread from a bag with the corner snipped. Hold the stuffed olives firmly between the thumb and forefinger to cut neat slices quickly. I used the stuffed olive circles on top of the cucumbers. I scattered leaves cut from the green bread among the sandwiches on the tray to make it resemble flowers. They assembled quickly. A big hit!

Strawberry Spinach Salad I

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2012
I made this for a potluck luncheon and followed several suggestions. I used balsamic vinegar, half the sugar, blueberries, cutie tangerine slices, and bananaswith the strawberries. I did not add the fresh pineapple as i felt the juices would clash with the dressing.This recipe feeds more than four ladies. After dressing the spinach wilts fairly fast; not usable after a couple hours. So definitely dress only what is for immediate consumption. Pretty in a glass trifle bowl.

Italian Fig Cookies I

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
Grinding the filling means to put it in what is called a meat or sausage grinder. The manual ones clip onto the edge of the table or cabinet and a handle is turned. There are some that have a vacuum base. There are electric ones and Kitchen Aid has one as an attachment for their mixer. A food processor will not substitute for a grinder. The texture will be different and much coarser, which is why your filling was too thick and dry.
