German Spaetzle Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
I use a ziplock bag with holes poked in it to make the spaetzle, and have served it with butter and onions each time for Kaese Spaetzle. It's absolutely perfect.

Panna Cotta

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
Absolutely amazing. I don't bother to use skim milk; once you're using heavy cream, the calories from fat just don't matter. Also, I find that this makes eight muffin cups worth. I've tried topping this with lemon curd, or with blackberry syrup (boil down blackberry wine), but it's pretty awesome by itself, too.

Ethiopian Cabbage Dish

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
Doubled the spices and the onion, but still not enough flavor to this one. Add more salt!

Ranch Oyster Crackers

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
My mother's made these as long as I can remember! We tend to mix it up with the spices, but dill is the most important part.

Arancini III

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
The rice for this was a little bland, but can be used with any combination of fillings. My house likes mozzarella with ham and peas. Fried up perfectly, save well, great recipe.

French Spring Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
Made this for my group of college students, without the asparagus, because there was none in season and I didn't want to use canned. It's just as well that I didn't, though, because this was really thick, despite using extra broth on top of the water.

Challah I

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
A little more difficult than I was expecting, and takes some significant experience with bread doughs. My friend and I made it together and hers was much better, though.

Roasted Garlic Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
Fine, not exceptional the first day, but the leftovers of this were awful.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
Doubled these in an 11x17, and let them sit before we cut them. They were perfect without the icing. If you wanted a hard, chewy brownie, overcook them or use an edge pan. If you're like us and wanted a good chewy fudgy brownie, follow the directions and they'll be perfect.

Urban Legend Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
These are my absolute favorite cookies. We don't include the nuts, but you can vary the chips/nuts as much as you want. With milk and semisweet, it's great, but with white and dark, or with butterscotch and toffee chips, it's divine. The chewy texture is perfect, and the dough itself is irresistible. We always make extra to have raw.

Pork Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
This was fairly easy, though I definitely prefer it with thin rice noodles rather than with the ramen. If you're willing to put forth the extra effort, it could be a five-star recipe.

Quick Gnocchi

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
We've tried this several times and I've yet to find anyone who didn't like it. With the egg, it's chewy and great, but without it has a much gentler texture and still holds up just fine. Either way, it's perfect.

Hard Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Used this to ice doughnuts, and used semi-sweet chips instead of squares of baking chocolate. Perfect texture, beautiful high gloss, and the taste is divine. Definitely would recommend!

Jelly Doughnuts

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
I did everything wrong, and these still came out beautifully. I made them by hand, instead of with a machine. I forgot to mix the yeast and the milk before I mixed everything else, so I added extra water to start up the yeast. I had to add extra flour in order to stop the dough from sticking, and made them too big. We fried them by sight rather than timing them, and used blackberry jam. Some of them we didn't fill at all. We glazed them with Alton Brown's recipe (.25cup milk, 1t vanilla, 2cup powdered sugar) and they were marvelous! These were an after-dinner dessert, and the rest will be breakfast. The centers are a little doughy around the jam, and that's how I like them. Absolutely perfect, and apparently fool-proof!

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
Used double the cocoa and vanilla, as per suggestions, and the flavor was spot on. The texture is still a little thin, even using full-fat milk and simmering it for a while. Still, the flavor was so good noone cared.

Poached Orange Pears

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
Followed the recipe exactly (using canned pears) and it was awesome the first day. However, in the fridge we kept it in the syrup we served it with, and they dried up and turned into rocks. Store separate from syrups, and add them when you serve.

Cheese Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
Complaints about the roux are unfounded. 1T butter, 1T flour, and 1c milk makes a thin pasta sauce, which this is not. This is nicely thick, perfect on toast or baked potatoes. Honestly, this became solid once it went into the fridge, but melts again when we reheat it, because of the really nice aged cheddar we used. That's the other thing: always use a nice cheese in a dish like this. It makes all the difference.

Lemon Pudding Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
Made this exactly as described, no changes, and it was gone in minutes. Mine is a family of college kids, and this was a perfect hit. The next time I made it, I did a double-batch, and the leftovers were even better cold the next day for breakfast!

No Bake Cookies V

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
Absolutely perfect! I used to eat these with my lunch in elementary school, and this recipe is chocolatier than those, but just right. My family is a group of college students, and these disappear whenever I make them!
