Oriental Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2006
Taped recipe on refrigerator. Recipe yields 4.7 ounces by weight, and as delicious as this is, I'm not positive it serves 4. ;)

Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2006
On simplicity alone, this is a definite 5 star, but made as directed, lime is a little strong, and it has a big kick. At 1.5 drinks, the drinker said, "This is number two, right?" As if perhaps it could have been number 3. Asked how they were and got a giggly, "I'm loving them right now!" SERIOUS KICK. :)

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2005
Superb! This ends my search for the Holy Grail of whole wheat honey breads. Thanks, Nita! I added .25 cup sunflower seeds per loaf, and omitted the butter during baking, though did butter brush the crust. Lovely. (Kitchen Aid speed 2, dough hook, 10 minutes)

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2005
Try proscuitto! However, if you use bacon, cook it until the fat is rendered before wrapping the shrimp. This recipe does not work as written. Read and heed the comments!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2005
I'm still on my search for the Holy Grail of biscuits. These are good, but not what I consider excellent.

Butter Cream Frosting II

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2005
Bless your heart, Kris—you just saved me a good bit of trouble with excellent results! Will use repeatedly. Halved recipe, replaced milk with lemon and vanilla extracts, and liquid food coloring. Pipes beautifully. Thanks to the writer who described how she did it with her KA; I followed in your steps.

Chocolate Truffles

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2005
Super easy and a "can't fail" recipe. A little too sweet for me, but certainly worth making. Handy to have in the freezer--dip or coat when you're ready to use them. Seal well, chocolate absorbs other flavors very easily! This recipe scaled to one-third filled a quart freezer bag. A lot of truffles!

Chocolate Covered Cherries

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2005
5-star taste, 4-star rating because of excess fondant quantity. Scaled to 16 servings to = one 10 ounce bottle of stemmed cherries. 4 ounces of confectioners sugar = 1 cup. Also, easy to do chocolate in microwave on 30 second bursts--no need for double boiler. You will need WAY more chocolate than recipe calls for.

The flavor was perfect, but the dough was difficult to handle. Thanks for posting the recipe!

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2005
Excellent! Accidentally doubled the sugar—a little too sweet and STILL fine. Worth cooking regularly as potpourri you eat. Thanks!

Baked Zesty Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2005
I messed with this a bit, keeping the basic proportions of the sauce intact. It was fantastic. Was almost good enough to make me eat the carrots, even—but not quite. Dipped my fingers in the sauce and licked them clean instead. Absurdly good. Excellent for all kinds of things! Thanks much!

Baker's Secret Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2005
I'm not rating this because I didn't follow instructions, and I'm pretty sure it'd work beautifully in a food processor, but I never drag that thing out (not dishwasher friendly). If I can't make it with my stand mixer, it doesn't get made. I gave it a shot, and though I have successfully made other pie crusts with the KitchenAid—there's one in the book that came with the mixer—this wasn't forgiving at all. It rolled out very poorly. Extremely sticky. Appreciate it being here, just the same. I might reconsider it if I had a ton of pies to do, making it worth getting the food processor dirty.

Emily's Famous Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2005
Sorry to say this did not work well for me at all--far, far too dry. Regrettably, I made a lattice top and everything. :( Both husband and I agree it's not one I'll make again. I'm suprised because it was so well reviewed.

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2005
Yummy goodness! Easiest thing to make. Asked my hubby to pick up more yeast/flour so I could make more. He came back with 15 packs of yeast, and many bags of bread flour, so hrmmm... guess he liked it too. Very forgiving, too--first time I made this I left out a rise cycle and it was still very good! Seems the longer it rises the fluffier it gets. This is posted on my fridge as a staple recipe. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful recipe! I love the idiot proof stuff! (12 days later, I'm back to say I used this for hamburger buns today, and it's wonderful. I've also made boules with it successfully. Thanks again!)

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2005
Excellent! Simple, fast, and inexpensive to boot! I used 3 smaller lemons (the size that's usually in a bag) and left out the zest. Tart, but not too tart. I beat the meringue on 10 on my KitchenAid, next time I looked, it was perfect! Served this with chicken salad on refrigerator croissants--the croissants and pie went in at the same temp. Had just enough time to pull out the pie, get plates ready, and the croissants were done. Pie filling was a little runny warm, but perfect once chilled! Thanks! (Also, heating lemons for 30 seconds in microwave produces more juice.) Update: January 31, 2006--if you do not have a Microplane zester, BUY ONE! Works incredibly well and doubles as a dead skin on feet scraper. Look for reviews. :) My really big dog loves to lick little bits of this off my fingers! His fave, my fave. :)
