Yellow Squash

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2013
Simply wonderful. "Thinly sliced" is the message here; something like 1/8-inch is ideal, no thicker, please. Not to worry, the drippings from 2 slices of bacon is not too much fat. You may prefer, as do I, to fry your bacon over moderate heat, but high heat works best for the vegetables. Cook just until you sure the squash is tender but not wilted. I had some ends of yellow and red bell peppers, which I also "thinly sliced," and they may an easy addition without upsetting the recipe and iota. I'll do this again. Thanks!

Chocolate Walnut Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2009
This fudge never set up, a fate that apparently befell another reviewer. After an hour of beating, all I had was a bowl of room-temperature, chocolate sludge. I guess I'll have to turn it into brownies tomorrow. The recipe was followed to the letter, something I feel you have to do with any confection involving boiling sugar. I suspect the problem is that I never got the sugar-milk-marshmallow mixture up to a temperature high enough to insure that it would set up later after beating. It would help if Leema would provide a temperature to which the boiling mass should be brought. Providing such a bench mark might be so much clearer than instructions to stir and boil, then reduce heat to low and stir some more for 6 minutes. Just what temperature is "low" anyway. I suspect Leema's low is probably higher than the low on my range.

Mountain Apple Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2014
As much as I love butter, the quantity called for here is much more than is necessary or, in my humble opinion, desired. The same goes for the sugar, where 1/2-cup is more than a plenty. Think about it. There are 24 tablespoons of sugar in 1-1/2 cups, so that's 1-1/2 tablespoons of sugar for each 1/8-wedge of apple wrapped in canned crescent-roll dough, and that doesn't include the sugar in the Mountain Dew. I'd also suggest the recipe is more complex than necessary. I have a burner-proof deep-dish pie plate. A pie tin would work, as well. I melt my butter in the pie plate on the stove top, add the sugar, cinnamon and Mountain Dew once the butter is melted, and transfer the syrup off the stove top. Then I preheat my oven, put together the apples and crescent-roll dough, place the dough covered apples in the warm syrup, and put the dish in the oven to bake as directed. Note also that a cup of water and the juice of half a lemon or lime is a healthy alternative to the carbonated soda pop.

Most Amazing Challah

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
Great recipe! I used regular active dry yeast, but started by allowing a sponge to proof containing all the water, all the yeast, and about a third of the flour. Once that's going, it's easy adding the remaining ingredients. I agree that the last flour additions are best done in 1/2-cup increments. I'm not fond of "flavored" breads to eat, say, with scrambled eggs, so I omitted the vanilla with the egg wash. That's a personal quirk and doesn't reflect on the quality of this recipe, at all. As noted by others, the recipe halves easily. It also freezes well. Thanks.

Chicken Encilantrada

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2005
Simple, quick and delicious. This is a great way to use up leftover chicken or pork (a great substitute) and that half-bunch of coriander remaining after using the first half for some other dish.
