Italian Wedding Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2012
Oh yeah baby..good stuff! I "accidently" made the meatballs quite spicy; was short about 1/4 C. on the regular bread crumbs and remembered that I had some spicy Japanese panko bread crumbs, so I added those. Pretty good mistake! After that, I decided not to add the spice to the broth, thought it would be too much flavor "fighting" and I think it turned out just fine that way. With the spinach, I cut the stems off and stacked several leaves together, rolled them up cigar fashion and cut them into ribbons. A little extra work, but I think spinach looks nicer that way in soup.

Soft Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
If you like a soft cake-like cookie as I do, this is the one for you. And if you're also like me in that you hate rolling dough, you'll like them twice as much! Definitely want to chill the dough before working with it. I just made them for the first time, and made 24 as the recipe suggests and they were huge and it was a bit difficult to get them baked in the center! Next time I think I'll make 30 cookies. I took one readers suggestion and rolled some of them in cinnamon/sugar and the rest in plain granulated sugar. Of course, the sky's the limit there; they'd be wonderful with colored sugars for the holidays and, as some other readers did, they can be frosted as well. I'm thinking too that I might try adding some cocoa to the dry ingredients (perhaps 1/2 C. to make them a chocolate cookie. Has anybody else done that? If so, how did that turn out?

German Chocolate Cake Frosting II

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2009
Oh yeah..."yumo" as Rachel would say! Delicious frosting. I'm one of those cooks who thinks a cake mix is OK, but frosting from a tub...unforgivable! So I was recently looking for a good frosting recipe for German chocolate cake and I found it in this one. Thanks Carol B.! As with some other readers I added 1T. of corn starch to the ev. milk and that worked out very well. I would recommend that. Also, I let the frosting sit a bit after cooking and before frosting the cake so as to let it thicken up a bit.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
Pretty good little lemon cookie. I agree, however, with a couple of other readers who said it has a bit of a "Fruit Loops" taste..kinda cloying; guess it's the artificial lemon flavor of the cake mix. Also agree with the readers who said to chill the dough before forming it into balls..gotta do that or it's pretty much impossible to work with.

Grandma's Tomato Soup

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
Oh yeah, baby...luv this soup; thank you Miss Gerri! So simple and yet so tasty. You can noodle (excuse the pun!) around with it too. Add any ole' kind of pasta (rosemarina would be good)or rice would be good. And as with one reader, I used cream instead of the water. Great if you like a cream soup and hang the calories! Also knocked the sugar down to one T. as did some others.
