Easy, fast and pretty good. Definitely good with the cheese.

Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies in a Jar

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2003
The taste is very good and I may make this again. For me it is quite sweet and we did not add frosting or any decoration. If I make this again, I will try it with less sugar. However, I don't think I'll use it for cut-outs (which is what I was looking for) because it really expands during cooking and the cut-outs will lose their shapes.

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2003
I didn't put pecans (or any nuts), nor the orange zest. Even so, this is an easy, yet tasty recipe and I have made it several times. One thing is that right after taking it out of the oven, it isn't quite ready, i.e. it doesn't pass the toothpick test. But after cooling, it is done.

Chinese Chicken and Corn Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2003
This is a very flavorful soup, especially for cold winter days. It is filling for a soup which is a plus. I personally like the proportion of tofu to chicken (I like tofu). I will definitely keep this recipe.

Stir-Fry Pork with Ginger

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2003
This was very tasty, but I made a few adjustments. First, I doubled everything in the recipe except for the oils. I didn't add any additional salt. I also used 1/2 teaspoon of minced ginger instead of fresh ginger root. Snow peas went well with it.

Delilah's Frosted Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2003
I thought the dough was too sticky; I had to keep adding flour. That made the cookies taste a bit floury, but it wasn't horrible. I found a better recipe that I could do with kids (less sticky and great texture): Soft Christmas Cookies by Georgie Bowers. I also liked the Sugar Cookie Icing by Janice Brubaker. I probably won't make this one again.

Soft Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2003
I followed several suggestions in the reviews here: 3 cups of flour, 350 degrees for about 8-10 min., and butter instead of margarine. Personally, I don't like it too sweet, so I also only used 1 cup of sugar. The first time I tried it without any adjustments and the dough came out super sticky even after an overnight refrigeration (I had to throw some of it away). I wasn't sure if it was because of the ingredients or whether I used a mixer to beat in the flour. Second try, I made the adjustments and I didn't use the mixer for the flour and it came out perfect. The dough seemed crumbly and hard at first, but after rolling it more and more, the texture was perfect, especially for kids. The taste is good and I will definitely use this recipe again. For icing, I use Sugar Cookie Icing by Janice Brubaker.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2003
I adjusted the recipe with the amount of milk and corn syrup to get it to the consistency I liked (about 3 tsp of milk and 3 tsp of corn syrup). The icing tasted and looked good and was pretty easy to work with. I used this on the Soft Christmas Cookies by Georgie Bowers. I will use this again.

Chinese Green Bean Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2003
I agree with the last review: just ok. Maybe fermented black beans would be better than black bean sauce. But I doubt I will make this recipe again.

Chinese Steamed Buns

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2003
It's time consuming but worth it! The buns were moist and light. They were like those you would find in dim sum, except the buns were a lot smaller when made as directed. Each one was about a couple of bites. My family loved it. When steaming, make sure you have enough water to last through the 15 minutes. I will try it with filling next. I'm definitely keeping this recipe :-).

Hot Spiced Cider

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2003
This was not bad and was pretty simple, but I'm still looking for one that is similar to the one I had at Hobee's restaurant. Hobee's is very flavorful with a bunch of spices, but I can't tell what. I used a pot since I don't have a coffee maker and I took the suggestion of using a coffee filter.

Ma Po Tofu

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2003
I like tofu and it was good to find a tasty and relatively easy dish to make. I took the suggestion of one reviewer to use the black bean sauce w/garlic instead of the fermented black beans. That worked well. I also used ground beef instead of ground pork. The first try, I put the chili sauce and no cayenne pepper. The second try, I didn't put any chili sauce nor cayenne pepper because I wanted the kids to give it a try. It is better with the chili sauce but it was still tasty without it.

Kinderpunsch

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2003
This is way too sweet for us, but the flavor is good, especially with the lemon slices. I'm not sure I'll try this again. But if I do, I would use less or no additional sugar.

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2004
I've tried this recipe twice because the sauce is really good. I tried with chicken breast and drumsticks, but it's just didn't turn out the way I hoped. The sauce doesn't soak through. Maybe this would work better if the chicken is marinated. Plus I never got the sauce to carmelize. I think I'll just find another recipe.

Elbows and Ground Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2004
This is easy, fast, and not too bad. But I was a little disappointed that the sauce wasn't as tasty. I would like a mac 'n beef recipe that also has a lot more sauce. I put in additional tomato sauce, but it still wasn't enough. This recipe also seems to serve more than 4. We had a lot left over.

Hong Kong Style Egg Tarts

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2004
I'm a novice cook, so maybe I did this recipe wrong (that's why I gave it 2 stars instead of 1). But it turned out terrible for me. The dough was hard and kept cracking. I had to make the tart thicker so that it wouldn't fall apart. But it did anyways during baking (what a mess!). There was way too much egg mixture too.

Groovie Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2004
This a fairly good and easy smoothie to make. It does taste yogurt-y which is a slight detraction. Sometimes I substitute the vanilla yogurt with vanilla ice cream depending on my mood. It isn't as healthy, but it's a lot more yummy.

Easier Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2004
I'm not a big fan of chicken marsala, but my husband is (I don't really like the wine taste/smell). I tried this and my family liked it. The chicken is tender and it was pretty easy to make. I didn't have marsala wine, so I substituted with Chinese rice wine which is like a dry sherry. I also did as other reviewers suggested, doubled the wine, plus I added 3/4 cup of chicken broth. I simmered longer as well. To thicken the sauce, I added a cornstarch slurry. Next time I think I'll use less wine and more broth (as a compromise between me & my husband ;-)).

Simply Lemon Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2004
It was fairly tender even though I didn't baste as often as I wanted. The taste was pretty good, especially for so few ingredients and without marinating. I will keep this recipe.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2004
For all the ingredients and preparation, I thought it wasn't as good as I hoped. However, the chicken was VERY tender, just not that flavorful. With less ingredients and no marinating, I liked the Simply Lemon Baked Chicken just as much.
