Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
This was fantastic! Everyone LOVED it. I used fresh spinach and a sweet vidalia onion as well as a mixture of cheddar and swiss. It was just great! I brought this to a potluck and this was definitely gone first!

Miriam's Not-So-Secret Challah

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
I've made challah almost every week for years and this is the best one yet! I put the ingredients in in a different order, as I've learned they should be added. Here's what I did: 1. Mix the yeast with 100 degree water and the white sugar and allow to bloom for 5 minutes, or until VERY foamy. 2. Mix in brown sugar, eggs and margarine. 3. Mix in flour and salt From there, I followed the recipe as normal. The challah was done after 30 minutes, so make sure you watch it closely. Cooking it for the 45 minutes the recipe suggest would ruin it in my oven! I added sesame seeds on top instead of poppies. It was just great!

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
Absolutely amazing! I took the other reviewer's advice and switched the white and brown sugar quantities. I also added homemade toffee pieces. I baked them for 12 minute and, viola! YUMMMMMMM.

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
This is really good frosting and it's really easy to make. Make sure that you continue to whip it for a while after its all combined, so that all the powdered sugar dissolves. *** I made this again last night and added 3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder. Delicious! *** This time I ommitted the milk, and thinned it out with Blueberry Jelly instead! Oh my goodness it's amazing!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
I made these tonight for the second time. They were fantastic! The first time I made them, they were a flop, but the second was amazing. I tried them first in a food processor, but that overdid it. The second time, i did it the way the barefoot contessa says: in my KitchenAid. Put all the dry ingredients together in your mixer and give it a quick spin. Cut the butter into pieces and throw them in. Run the mixer on low, until the butter's broken up into pea sized pieces. Then, add the milk slowly until just combined. Then take it out and pat down on floured surface. You can fold it over once to get more out of it, but throw away the rest because it's too tough after that. Brush the tops with butter and a little salt and bake. IMPORTANT: make sure your oven's at the right temperature! That really does make all the difference.

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
I've made this many times and now everyone asks for it. I made the egg custard, let that chill, and then add the mascarpone to it. Then, I fold in the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture. I think it tastes better having it all combined that having it in separate layers. I usually make it 24-36 hours ahead of time, so all the flavors can meld together. FANTASTIC!

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
Wow. This was amazing. I took the other reviewers advice and I added just a little bit more ice water and it was the perfect consistency to roll. I also didn't chill it before hand. I took it right out of the bowl and then laid it between two layers of wax paper, and then roll it out that way. That way, when I transferred it to the pan dish, it was about a million times easier than ever before! This was sooooo delicious, no one would believe that I had made it myself :)

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: May 26, 2009
I make this with half and half instead of heavy cream and it's still absolutely delicious! You definitely have to use REAL Parmesan cheese and let it all dissolve. Also, I always use atleast 4 cloves of garlic.

Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
Fantastic! I added 1 tsp of vanilla extract and 1 cup of raisins to the batter. The batter looked a bit too thin, so I added about 1/3 cup of self-rising flour. I didn't want to mix it by hand, so I put the dry ingredients and the butter in the food processor, and then had the dough hook attachment incorporate the egg and the milk mixture. Also, I cooked them for about 2 extra minutes. They came out wonderfully and I got rave reviews :) I think that I will use this as my base recipe, and change out what I add to it. Instead of the vanilla and the raisins, I'll try lemon extract and blueberries next time...

Peppermint Meringues

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
These were amazing! I made another recipe and it was a complete flop - this one is awesome. The trick is to whip them ALL the way - they should be glossy and bright white. I took another reviewer's advice and added 1/2 tsp peppermint extract to the egg whites AFTER they were completely whipped. I crushed a candy cade to fine powder and sprinkled it over the top - delish! Everyone I gave these to said that they only time they had every heard of meringue was in lemon meringue pie, which got me thinking. So, I made them another way - egg whites, cream of tartar, salt, and sugar beat up like the recipe says... and then I folded in 3 drops of yellow food coloring and 1/2 tsp lemon extract. They taste and look like little lemon meringues!

Mini Cheesecakes I

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
These were a fantastic hit! I wasn't able to find miniature muffin cups liners, so I lined regular sized muffin cups and used those instead. I had to add a few extra minutes baking time because of that. I topped them with a strawberry sauce made from seedless jam and some lemon juice, fresh strawberries, and shaved chocolate. Delicious!
