Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
Brilliant. We have been eating this for two meals a day since Sunday. It was exactly according to the recipe. Excellent. Though I would say this makes more like 20+ servings....

High Rise Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
Just wonderful. I don't normally like using wholewheat flour in my rolls, but the buttermilk does something amazing making the rolls soft and excellent. We had these with Texas BBQ pulled pork. Perfect.

French Crepes

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. I was skeptical about the use of 3 eggs, but I made it exactly according to the directions and they were perfect. The best crepes I have ever made thin, crisp and a real treat. I used a bit of oil in the frying pan as well in order to get them nice and crisp.

Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
Absolutely unbelieveable. I still can't believe that I can make something that tastes this good in my kitchen! I do not have a bread machine or mixer so I made them by hand. In order to do this I used 2tsp active dry yeast which I proofed in a glass with 1 tbsp of sugar and the 1 cup of warm water until a nice foamy head had developed on the water (about 10mins). In the meantime, I mixed the dry ingredients in a large bowl and made a well in the center. Once the yeast was developed I poured it into the well and also added the softened butter and the egg. I then stirred the wet ingredients in the well letting the dry fall and mix in slowly. This makes quite a moist dough. I let it rest for about 10mins while I made the caramel and then I started vigorously mixing/kneading the dough with a large plastic spatula. It was at this point that I realised the magic of using powdered milk. The protein in the milk really activates the gluten in the flour and as I continued to mix the dough it began to bind together really nicely into a onderful smooth and manageable elastic dough. My tip to those making this recipe by hand, follow the amount of ingredients exactly (do not be tempted to add any more flour!) and just let all the chemical bonding do its magic. The dough was incredibly easy to roll out and not sticky just wonderfully elastic which makes these rolls light and cakelike and incredible. Thank you Kathy!! p.s. I did not even ice these. They are perfect.

Cherry Hazelnut Biscotti

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2010
Excellent. I followed the recipe exactly (even though I was nervous that the cooking time would make them too dry). I was completely wrong. They were perfect and kept for over a week. I halved the recipe because there is just two of us and that still made a large amount.

Turkey in a Bag

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
I brined my turkey for 24 hours beforehand and then cooked it with sage, apple and chestnut stuffing, bastingit occasionally with maple syrup in a bag as directed. It was the JUICIEST most amazing turkey I have ever had. Thank you! I opened the bag up for the last 20 minutes to brown it.

Poppy Seed Yeast Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Excellent bread, perfect for sandwiches or toast. The poppy seeds are subtle and not overpowering yet add a nice taste and texture. I did not have almond extract or butter flavoring. I just added a knob of butter instead. I will definitely be making it again.
