Sopapillas

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2003
The 8 cups of shortening are for frying. Only 2 tablespoons actually go into the sopapillas.

Unbelievable Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2004
I followed the recipe just fine, and they worked just fine, but there was nothing "unbelievable" about them. I was hoping for something really unbelievable for the holidays, and instead they tasted like the prewrapped ones at the grocery store.

Oranged Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2004
This recipe was a lot of fun to make! It was my first time every making cranberry sauce, and I loved it. The orange was a great flavoring! It was stronger than any other kind of cranberry sauce I've ever had, though, so everyone was taking little, teeny bites.

Cheesy Baked Eggplant

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2005
This tasted great! It was very flavorful and delicious; we ate it with french bread, which seemed to hit the spot. I think I'll use a smaller pan next time because there wasn't enough cheese to make a full layer in the big pan (but I had enough ingredients to make some more).

Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2005
I had Jello Chocolate pudding in the house, so I used that instead of the vanilla instant pudding mix, and it tasted fabulous! I was especially pleased with the pastry shells. I'd tried to make cream puffs before from a different recipe, and they did not turn out nearly as well as these. Yummy!

Hariton's 'Famous' Vegetarian Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2005
This was a really good recipe, although I had to turn the heat down because the outside of the vegetables were cooking before the inside (but I live in high altitude, 5300 ft). I suggest eating it with rice! After making it according to the recipe the first time, I added more tomato sauce the next time and I left out the squash and added more potatoes instead. This recipe is very adaptable; it's easy to make it how you like!

Tasty Buns

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
This was a fantastic recipe! I'd gone to the store to get hotdog buns and came back with burger buns. I didn't feel like going back to the store and had the ingredients for this recipe. I'm glad I tried it! I substituted whole wheat flour for all-purpose flour, and it came out perfect. My boyfriend said the buns were the best part of the whole meal!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2006
The fudge came out beautifully. Some reviewers said theirs came out hard, but when I made this recipe, it came out very soft and yummy. The only change I made was that I added a spoonful of peanutbutter to the fudge as it was on the stovetop to give it a stronger peanut butter flavor.

Stuffed Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2006
This recipe was delicious. I added extra garlic, but other than that, I stuck to the recipe. The only problem I found was that the eggplant shells were never tender enough to eat, but everyone was happy just to eat the inside mixture with garlic bread, and it was fantastic!

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2007
This lemon bars are fantastic! At first, we couldn't really taste much lemon and were disappointed. We put them in the fridge for a day, and when we ate them cold... wow! lemony and delicious!

Lemon Sorbet

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
With our ice cream maker, the sorbet was ready to eat after 15 minutes of freezing. It was delicious! We used Perrier instead of mineral water. For the lemon peel and juice, we used only the zest and the juice of two lemons. So yummy! Next time we're going to double the recipe.

Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2007
This soup is so good! I used vegetable stock instead of chicken stock to make it vegetarian-friendly, and I also snuck in an extra clove of garlic. My husband and I ate it with some crusty Frech bread, and it's very tasty. Next time, I plan on adding more flour to give it more thickness, and I might try a peanut butter that's not quite as sweet (we used Skippy).

Old Fashioned Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
I thought this recipe had a lot of potential... I loved the basic idea of the dessert, but it was way to sweet for my husband and me. Also, we didn't taste much spice. I would make this again because it was so unique (and the apples came out so tender!), but next time, I'm going to add a lot more cinnamon and nutmeg and cut back on the sugar.

Classic Whiskey Sour

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
I used some lime simple syrup I had leftover from another recipe. My husband, who's a big whiskey drinker, loved it.

Mango Sorbet

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
This sorbet is so, so good. To make simple syrup, I boiled a cup of water and then stirred in a cup of sugar until the sugar was dissolved. To give it more fruit flavor, I added the lime zest from two limes to the water before I boiled it. Once the simple syrup was made, I added the lime juice from both limes. Once it cooled a bit, I put in in the fridge for a while. I ended up with more than a cup of simple syrup, so I just used a cup of it and am saving the rest to make the recipe again. Very yummy! It tastes very fresh.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2007
I love how easy this recipe is, and it came out the perfect consistancy. However, it's way too sweet for my taste. My husband described it as a good dessert. Perhaps it was the apples I bought? Anyway, I'll make this again, but next time, I won't add any sugar.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2007
I followed another reviewer's advice and put the root vegetables in first. After about 15 minutes, I added in the onion and peppers (and I added 4 peeled and halved cloves of garlic!) and cooked it for about 20 more minutes. I wanted to serve this as a main dish, so after it came out of the oven, I stirred in about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of leftover jarred spaghetti sauce. The sauce made it moist so we could eat it over rice.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2007
This was so, so yummy. My husband and I were so thrilled with the pumpkin bread, that we each took some to our coworkers and family for them to try! Since I didn't use walnuts, I added extra chocolate chips, and I also doubled the cinnamon. Yum! I made this recipe a second time and used only 2 and a half cups of sugar. I still doubled the cinnamon, and it came out delicious! This time, I used mini loaf pans. They were done in 40 minutes.

Stuffed Green Peppers

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
My favorite thing about this recipe is that it's easy and takes very few ingredients. Perfect for a budget! And it tastes very yummy. I made them tonight, and my husband said they're his new favorite stuffed peppers. I had some garlic and onion on hand, so I chopped some up and sauteed it in some olive oil. After about five minutes, I turned the temperature down and added my can of tomato sauce. It gave the sauce more flavor. Also, not all the filling fit into my peppers. Maybe I bought too small of peppers? So I added the remainder of the filling to the tomato sauce, too.

Blueberry Drop Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
I loved these cookies! My husband really enjoyed them, too. I opted to use the full amount of almond extract (no vanilla like some people recommended). I'm glad I did! The almond and the zest make the cookies so flavorful. My cookies didn't spread out a lot on the pan like a lot of other people experienced. They came out with the texture exactly of a cookie. Yummo! The only changes I made to the recipe were that I used the butter-flavored Crisco shortening, and I added about a third of a cup extra blueberries. They came out perfectly! Also, I live in high altitude. The 12 minutes were plenty to cook the cookies at high altitude!
