Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2006
This was a good base to start off of, but the recipe as is needed tweaking for my tastes. I used a whole wheat baking mix so I left out the baking soda and baking powder. I just used 2 cups of the mix. I hate allspice so I deleted that too. I ended up using a whole can of pumpkin, but I really like pumpkin. I doubled the cinnamon and the ginger. I also added more brown sugar, about 1/4 cup. I also used skim milk and cut the oil to 1 Tbsn. I kind of just tasted the recipe until it was how I liked it. As far as the vinegar, use cider vinegar. I have made these 3x and used no vinegar first, used white the second, and cider the 3rd. The vinegar makes them fluffier I think, but white vinegar I could taste. I used a lot of pumpkin so mine were very moist!! I loved it though because I love the pumpkin pie flavor. Also, the batter was a bit thick at the end so I added water. My advice, taste the batter because if you do not like it in the bowl, you won't like it when it is done. You can adjust from there.

Apple-Cinnamon Farfel Kugel

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2006
This was good but too sweet for me. I tripled the recipe for a large seder I attended. It fit nicely in a 13x9 baking dish and I was able to make it the night before. We put it in the oven covered with foil at 250 while the seder was going on and took it out after about 45 min. It was still moist and great. It was served on the buffet with everything else instead of as a dessert. I think that was my first mistake. It was really good and the consistency was great, but I felt the sugar overpowered it. It actually had a sugar taste. There is a difference between something tasting sweet and something having a "sugar" taste. It did not go well with all the other food on the table. With apple and cinnamon you cannot go wrong, so I am not sure that I would go as low as half the sugar, but for tripling the recipe I would use just over a cup. I also took the advice of another reviewer and added an extra apple. I also opted to use Granny Smith apples. I cannot wait to make this again, just with lower sugar.

Passover Rolls II

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2006
These are decent but pretty bland. I just looked up other Passover Roll recipes on line and they were about the same as this with one tablespoon of sugar instead of 1 teaspoon. I think that is probably more to my liking. This is definitely worth making, but I am definitely adding more sugar next time. I also only needed to cook it for 50 minutes and that was a little bit too much. I would set your timer for 45 minutes and watch closely. **OK I made them again today and added the sugar and it was great!!! I added a little more than a tablespoon and the rolls taste like funnel cakes. My only complaint is that I used extra large eggs this time and it was too much egg for me. It made the inside like a kruller doughnut. Although that sounds good, it was so airy it was like their was nothing there.**This is my last update I promise!! I froze both batches of rolls I made and defrosted them the day off. In the second batch with extra sugar and extra large eggs, the airy quality of the center was toned down a ton. It was perfect and moist. The first batch was slightly dry to me. Everyone raved over them. They were a huge hit.

Easy Raspberry Lemonade

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2006
This was fabulous! I had a party of about 35 people. I tripled the recipe and it still wasn't enough. I didn't want to deal with the mint, so I just put some raspberries in ther and sliced up a lime to float in there. Highly recommend!!

Italian Restaurant-Style Salad Dressing I

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2006
It was great!! I used Ken's Light Olive Oil Vinagrette. I actually even poured a little more oil out of that. It is great to marinate chicken with.

Saltine Toffee Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
Very good! I served it at a party today and got rave reviews. I did use light butter. Here is the lowdown on that decision... As far as taste it was still amazing! It was a bit wetter on the bottom than it would have been if I had used real butter. If you plan on keeping it for awhile or giving it out in tins, light butter is not an option. If you are making it to serve within a day, just cut parchment paper neatly, or use doilies in between layers on your platter and you will be ok. You must also keep them in the fridge. The taste is still great and it cuts the fat tremendously. Also, for anyone who celebrates Passover, this is going to be Matzah Toffee Crisps for me! I know it will blow everyone away! I have a similar recipe for that but this is easier and I am sure will be better.

Anniversary Chicken I

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2005
The flavor of this was excellent. I used Just 2 Good low fat ranch dressing and low fat cheddar cheese. The only complaint my husband had was that all the topping slid off and was gone before he was done with the chicken breast. The taste was so good he wanted it in every bite. I think next time I may cut the chicken breasts into big chunks and then put all the toppings on to get better coverage. You would have to adjust cooking time but I am going to give it a try.

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2004
This was the best fudge I have ever tasted. The first time I made it I messed it up by adding a whole cal of evaporated milk. I ended up using as a chocolate fondue and served it with bananas, pineapple, graham crackers, marshmallows, and pound cake. It was amazing! The next time I followed the directions and it was perfect!! I already have a ton of ideas for next CHristmas on how I will make different variations of this. A Rocky ROad version, maybe broken pretzels into it, incorporating peanut butter somehow, etc. Not sure how it will work, I will update my review then I guess. This was my first time making fudge and I got such rave reviews people thought it was my specialty. I will hold on to this recipe forever!! 12/12/05 I made it again this year and it was all gone in minutes. It is amazing!

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2004
Awesome!!! I don't even like canberry juice mixed with orange juice. It definitely needed to be made the night before because at first I thought it was too bitter, but by the next day it was perfect!!

Cranberry Chutney I

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2004
Major disappointment. Not sweet enough for me, and I usually don't like things that sweet. The cider vinegar didn't help either, my husband hated the smell. I think substituting for that would be a good idea. I double checked make sure I did it right since all the reviews were so great and I did. It was just a weird flavor. I will not make again.

Potato Latkes I

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2002
This was a bit eggy for me. I will definitely only use 1 egg next time. I prefer to be able to taste the potato more. Also, I read an article about the perfect latke and it said the best temperature is 350 degrees. I used my metal thermometer to make sure it was that hot before I started and it made a big difference. The cooked perfectly. I have had them fall apart before in the past.

Layered Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2002
My husband loved this. I thought it was good but a little dry. Next time I will use more sauce and I may try flour tortillas. I used light cheese to reduce the fat.
