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.

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.

Chinese Pork Buns (Cha Siu Bao)

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2004
I only made the bun portion of this recipe. I tried it twice and both times the dough came out crumbly and dry. The buns turned out so-so, not very moist and kind of dense. I had much better results with the Chinese Steamed Buns recipe which required more steps. I will not be using this recipe again.

Smoky Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2004
I thought this recipe was just ok. I didn't really taste the smoky flavor. The Cream Cheese and Ham Spread recipe had a stronger flavor. I may try combining these two recipes.

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.

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.

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.

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 :-).

Cream Cheese and Ham Spread

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2004
This is a pretty good spread for such an easy recipe. It definitely has more flavor after refrigeration overnight.

Talerine

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2004
My family liked this dish and it was pretty simple to make. I cut down on the salt and pepper, added some black olives, and took out the corn. I followed some reviewer's suggestion to cook the noodles separately so as to keep much of the sauce.

Barbeque Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2004
Yummy! I didn't change much, just added another tablespoon of brown sugar and ketchup and held back on the chili powder. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and removed as much fat as possible. It was very tender and tasty. The sauce is runny, but that keeps the chicken from getting dry.

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.

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2004
We didn't really like the taste much; we have quite a bit left over. We followed some of the reviewers' suggestions, 8 oz tomato sauce and little water. I used enchilada sauce instead of taco sauce. I agree with another reviewer that there was too much sour cream.

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2004
It was so-so. I didn't love the blend of spices, but I ate them. I baked them in a toaster oven for about 25 minutes at 350 degrees F. I cut them into long pieces (like you would find at fast food places) instead of wedges.

Marchetti

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2004
I made a lot of substitutions, depending on what I had on hand. I used 1 lb of ground turkey, 8 oz tomato sauce in place of tomato soup, sharp cheddar cheese instead of american, and no mushrooms. I thought it was quite good and easy. 1 lb. seemed enough meat for us. I will keep this 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.

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2004
This was tastier than I thought and was very easy. Since I didn't have the beans, I substituted the beans with cooked rice as another reviewer suggested. I also put about 3 cups of chicken broth instead of 5. The combination of spices smelled and tasted good!

Pizza Sauce II

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2004
This is pretty good recipe; needing only a few ingredients. I didn't use it for pizza this time, but will try it some day. I used it for the Pizza Casserole recipe here. I cut this recipe in half for it.

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2004
This is a very versatile and relatively easy recipe. I used the Pizza Sauce II recipe for the pizza sauce (halved that recipe). My husband is a pizza lover, so he loved this. I like pizza occassionally and this wasn't bad, but it was a bit strong for me. I'll probably modify it so that it isn't quite so strong-tasting.
