Lebkuchen I

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
Dense, spicy, not too sweet, excellent with black coffee. The spiciness mellowed nicely after two weeks. I didn't have enough honey so I substituted molasses, and it worked fine. I didn't like the store-bought dried peel that I used, so next time I'm going to experiment with other options. A really nice recipe, and I'll definitely make this again.

Extra Gingery Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2012
I took this to my office and it was gone by lunch, with a lot of people asking for the recipe. It's really wonderful and very gingery, which I like, especially the candied ginger. It's fantastic with black coffee. I baked it in two loaf pans for about 45 minutes, and served it over the next two days with butter. I didn't have apple juice so I used white grape juice, and I ran out of molasses at about 3/4 cup so I topped it off with maple syrup. Otherwise the recipe stayed the same. I'll try this again, and I'd like to see how it turns out if I replace some of the oil with applesauce. Thanks very much!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
This, for me, is the perfect way to prepare Brussels sprouts. It's easy and flexible. I cut the sprouts in half, which cut the roasting time down to about 20 minutes. I also finished off the dish with toasted sliced almonds and some fresh lime juice.

1-Dish Taco Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
I'm giving this five stars because it's everything the recipe says it is. It's a little heavy for me, but that's personal taste. It was very easy to make. I used the Qorn brand soy-based ground beef substitute, that worked great. ALSO I got home and realized I didn't have any quick-rise yeast. I used 1 tsp of baking soda + 1 1/2 tsp baking powder instead, and that worked just fine. The cornbread base rose well and tasted good. I made it in a 9x9 inch square baking pan and had no overflow. Were I to make this again, I'd probably try less cheese and meat (or whatever) and add beans and corn, maybe some cilantro.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
This is a great recipe and I don't think I'd use another when I want to make good, basic cinnamon rolls. I absolutely love the dough - it's light and sweet and would make very nice french toast from loaf form. Thanks!

Mexican Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
I'm making this a second time right now. I chose the recipe initially because it sounded good, even though I was looking for something different. I ended up loving it and forgetting what I was looking for in the first place. I even messed up the ingredients the first time I made it, and I still loved it. I use the home blend another reviewer suggested instead of the taco seasoning mix, and the avocado really makes the soup. This is now on my list of Recipes I'll Probably Make Forever.

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
Excellent. I used fresh cranberries instead of blueberries and baked it in a 9 x 13 pan for 50 minutes. I also cut butter to 1 1/2 cups, and increased the berries to 1 1/2 cups. I made the changes to work with what I had on hand. This recipe leaves a lot of room for interpretation, and I will make it again.
