Miracle Baking Powder Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
FIVE stars and I don't even LIKE pie crust - so believe me if I say this one comes out GREAT! I've made a LOT of pie crusts with various fillings (juicy berries, quiche, chicken pot, etc.) and tried numerous recipes, and everyone raves about them - but I never liked mine or anyone else's for that matter and I've eaten pies all over the US and Europe. Pie crusts were always a disappointment and not worth the calories to consume...but THIS ONE IS AWESOME!!! I made two to see if how they differed - one with butter-flavored Crisco and the other with lard and I did have to add a bit more ice water (drops at a time). As always with pie dough, I barely handled it and I also ONLY use an iced marble rolling-pin to get it thin and lovely - so that is my only "trick" but hands down - this came out incredible - flaky, tender and above all TASTY - my hubby rolled his eyes and acted like he'd died and gone to heaven with his first bite. I can't wait to try it at my next dinner party. Forget fancy desserts - I've fixed labor intensive layered and decorated concoctions before and yet everyone I've ever had over practically swoons when they see me bring a slice of "pie from scratch" to the table. They are gonna LOVE this one!

Sweet And Sour Glazed Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
I made the sauce (w/o the pkg of onion soup - too salty!) and added 1 clove crushed garlic and finely chopped onion instead and stirred them all together - then nuked it in the microwave. We put this over Turkey Meatballs (yep - the frozen store-bought kind) which had already been heated in the Microwave. Poured the sauce over the top of those and heated it for a couple minutes more. Served it with rice and got rave reviews from the family. It was AWESOME, and only took me about 10 minutes to make (not including the rice) and we LOVED the Russion Dressing and Apricot Preserves though - was an excellent "base" to get the right "sticky-ness" and flavor for the sauce.
