Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
Very easy to make and the perfect ratio of lemon curd to meringue. Make sure when you add the meringue that the curd is still very hot. This will allow the bottom of the meringue to cook and not be runny when the pie is complete. You can make the meringue first and then the curd to ensure this. I added about 1t cream of tartar to the meringue after adding the sugar, just to make sure that it stiffened up. I used meyer lemons and it wasn't sour enough for me. Also I don't think 2 lemons was nearly enough. I used the juice from 4 and the zest of 2, the consistency was perfect. This pie is better the next day!

Brown Rice Breakfast Porridge

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
Very good comfort food. Everyone in my house enjoys this. I usually omit the butter and add a little bit of brown sugar. And fresh blue berries on top. Some nice variations are to cook in some banana slices along with the blue berries. Or use cranberries instead. Next time I make I'm going to use blackberries. If you use frozen berries and it makes it runny, allow to boil for around 5 minutes to get rid of excess water and then simmer.

Holiday Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
Delicious! These were a huge hit with my family and friends. I'm a slow worker but these took much longer than 10mins of prep time if you're cutting the butter in. Definitely want to use cold butter, it will crumble up nicer and not get stuck to your knife. I followed another user's suggestion and pricked with a fork after 5mins in the oven. I'd say 7 mins would probably have been better because some parts were still a little crumbly. I baked in a 9x13in pan and there was much more than 30 servings. Cut them small, these are rich!

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
I used pecans instead of walnuts. They came out amazing. Huge hit at my house, I need to make another batch for Christmas. Make these at least a day in advance, they're better the day(s) after. I followed the recipe exactly and they came out perfect, some people might have had problems with the dough staying together because their chopped nuts were too big. I chopped pre-chopped nuts and got lazy towards the end so there was a variation in size. Cakes with smaller nuts stayed together better before and after baking. Definitely roll in the sugar a second time, they look prettier that way.

Spring Lime Tea Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
These were very good. I substituted lemons for limes and they came out great. Perfect dunking cookie because they don't fall apart when wet. Very light and fluffy, a huge hit with everyone in the house

Greek Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
These came out delicious. I doubled the amount of almond and vanilla extract after reading others' reviews. The "S" shapes were easy to make but most of them did not bake with the design clearly visible. If the dough gets sticky while you are rolling it with your hands, just wash or wipe off your hands and you're good for another 15 or so cookies.
