Cinnamon Rolls II

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
These are great! They are 5 stars with minor changes. I cut the dough recipe in half b/c I have a 1-2 lb bread machine. It would have been too much for my machine. The submitter must have a larger bread machine. Second, for the filling I used 1 cup brown sugar, 2 Tbs cinnamon and 1/3 cup melted butter. I made the full amount of frosting, but added about a tsp of vanilla. I softened the butter in the microwave. After slicing them and putting them in a 9x13 glass baking dish, I put saran wrap over the dish and put it in the fridge until I was ready to bake. It rose in the fridge, so I skipped the second rise. I baked for 20 minutes, but put it in the oven as it preheated. The rolls were slightly browned and a toothpick came out clean. I then dumped them in another 9x13 dish so the sugar middle would slide back in. I iced and served hot. The leftovers went in the fridge. YUM!!! Thanks for a great recipe. I am glad I tried this one over the Clone of Cinnabon recipe after reading all the reviews. These are better than store bought!!!

Italian Bread Using a Bread Machine

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
This was really good. I used 2 cups bread flour and 2 cups all purpose flour. I skipped the cornmeal. I made rolls and froze half before the second rise. These are great! Also good if you sprinkle some garlic powder on them before baking.

Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
This bread was really good. It rose a little too much for my bread machine. It hit the top. I deflated it and put some Pam oil spay on my hands so it wouldn't stick (I read the suggestion on another site, it worked and I didn't have to add more flour). I did substitute 2 Tbs canola oil for shortning and white sugar instead of brown sugar(I didn't have shortning or brown sugar). I didn't put the raisins in the dough, I rolled out the dough, put on the sugar/butter mixture and sprinkled on the raisins. I than rolled up the bread. I was out of butter and eggs, so I brushed the top with water and sprinkled on some cinnamon and sugar. I might us an egg wash next time. I froze one loaf and baked the other. Oh, mine only needed 1/2 hour to rise. I then set the oven to the temp and left the bread in for 30 minutes. It was perfect. This bread was great!!! I would definately make it again.

Shabbat Challah

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
This came out flat and hard. I halved the recipe. I am glad I didn't make the whole thing. What a waste. I don't know why it got such rave reviews. I like the taste of the ones with honey better anyway. Thanks anyway.

Soft Giant Pretzels

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
This recipe was good. I did throw all the ingredients in my bread machine, so it had a 1st rise. I was surprised it didn't need to sit for a second rise. Much easier to roll out than another recipe I have used. After baking, I brushed with melted butter and then sprinkled salt on some and cinnamon and sugar on the others. Next time I will follow Bobby Flay's suggestion and brush with an egg wash (1 egg and 1 Tbs water) and bake with the salt or cinnamon and sugar. That made a crisper outside. The taste was good. Will make again.

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Good French rolls. Not sure if it really did much, but I followed someone else's suggestion and sprayed water on the rolls while baking. I baked 15 minuters, misted with water and then baked 5 more minutes. I didn't put the second coat of egg b/c I didn't want bits of egg on my rolls. Don't bake as long as the recipe says or it will burn. Would make again. Might cut down on the yeast to 1 tsp, rolls tasted a bit yeasty.

Scott Hibb's Amazing Whisky Grilled Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
This is just for the sauce. The sauce was very tomatoey. It did have a zing to it. I made it on steaks. I will try a different BBQ sauce recipe.

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
These are very good. It is very close to the recipe Bobby Flay used on the Throwdown show. I threw the ingredients in my bread machine on the dough setting. I put it on a lightly floured surface and cut into 6 pieces (I only made a half recipe). It was kind of hard to roll out. They were very thick. I might try one of the suggestions and roll, then let it rest and go back to it. I boiled 4 cups of water and added 4 tsp baking soda. I dropped in for a few seconds and then put on a greased cookie sheet. I let it rise for 20 minutes in a warm oven. I brushed it with an egg wash and put cinnamon and sugar on some and salt on others. Then baked for 12-15 minutes in a 425 degree oven. They were very thick (my fault for not rolling it out more) but tasted very good. Will definately make again, but next time with all purpose flour.

Chile Garlic BBQ Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
This was good. I left off the lime zest (b/c I didn't use a fresh lime) and the green onions b/c I didn't have any. I only used a 1 lb of salmon. Next time I need over a 1 lb, we could have eaten more. I thought it needed a little more garlic and ginger. Overall, very good. My 5 year old loved it and was disappointed when it was all gone.

Korean Barbequed Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2009
Would not make again. There are many other Korean recipies on here that are much better. Try the Korean BBQ chicken. My family liked the marinade better and beef and chicken.

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
I didn't use the weigh method, I weighed the round pieces. 3 oz each makes 8 pita breads. I baked some on my pizza stone. They didn't puff the same as the ones I baked on the cooling rack in the oven. I put in large brown grocery bag with a towel inside and put a heavy bottle on the end to seal. It was kind of thick. I might make 10 next time and roll it thinner. Left it there until dinner was ready. Served with homemade hummas and greek chicken.

Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
Definately easy. I was looking for a recipe that didn't have tahini since I didn't have any and didn't want to go out to the store. I took other's suggestions and used 1 tsp olive oil and 2 tsp sesame oil (instead of all olive oil). I also added 1/2 Tbs lemon juice.

Bread Machine Challah II

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
After reading the other reviews, I added an extra 1/2 cup of flour. Other than that I followed the recipe. I don't have the instructions to my bread machine, so I put in all the dry ingredients and then the wet. I set the dough setting and left it. I let the dough rise in my oven, covered in a dishtowel. (Preheated the oven to 120). I made rolls instead of a large loaf. The rolls were good, kind of dense though. Challah is a little lighter. The flavor is very good though.

Korean BBQ Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
This was very good! Would definately make this again. I used a little less than a cup of soy sauce (just didn't fill the cup). I added some worchesteshire sauce and garlic powder (probably close to a TBS - didn't measure). I also added extra onion powder and ginger (probably about a TBS of each too). I couldn't find chile paste. I used red pepper flakes and some crushed cayenne pepper (about a tsp at first). After marinading, I cooked on my stovetop grill and boiled half the sauce to use later (10 min to kill anything from touching raw chicken). I added some extra red pepper flakes to the sauce (we used it, the kids don't like spicy). Served with rice, broccoli and fries.

Cookie Dough for Ice Cream (Eggless)

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
This was pretty good. I didn't add it to ice cream, just ate it. I used milk instead of water like others suggested. This would be good rolled in balls and dipped in chocolate!

Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
This was very good. My husband doesn't like balsamic vinegar so I used white wine vinegar. Marinaded for about 3 hours and cooked on indoor grill. Update: We didn't like the leftovers. After sitting in the fridge for a day, the vinegar taste was very strong!

Microwave Popcorn

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
I can't believe this worked. I have made this twice. My son loves it. It tastes like air popped popcorn. The second time I cut the kernels to 1/3 cup. 1/2 cup had too many wasted kernels. I might even cut it to 1/4 cup next time. It filled a brown lunch bag. We added some salt before serving. UPDATE: I made kettle corn. I put 1/4 cup kernels, 1/2 tsp oil, 1 Tbs sugar. Popped in brown bag until popping slowed. There were hardly any kernels unpopped. Added some sea salt to taste while hot. YUM! Tastes just like the Kettle Corn you get at the fairs!(Definately think 1/4 cup kernels is perfect for my microwave and paper bags.
