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!

Crusty French Bread

This was fantastic. I've made french bread in the past, but this one is definitely the best. Everyone ate it up so quickly! I had to take it away so that they didn't fill up before dinner!

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!

Beth's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2005
Oh my god! These were the best chocolate chip cookies I ever made. I've made so many chocolate chip cookies, but I'll never go back to those other recipes - this one is by far the best. I learned a trick on here to made the chewier and softer: mayonnaise. Add 1 teaspoon of mayonnaise after beating in the eggs to the creamed butter and sugar, before the dry ingredients. Wow! It was amazing. I never thought I'd want to add mayonnaise to my cookies, but it was amazing!

Cherry Pie III

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2005
I got RAVE reviews on this pie. To be honest, I don't like cherry pie in general, so I didn't think it was that great. I made it for my boss's birthday at work and everyone loved it, including my boss. That made me happy :)

Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2005
Wow! This soup was great. I made a smaller portion, since it was just me and my roommate. I used 8 cups of low sodium chicken broth, meat from one small game hen, and 2 cups of wide egg noodles. I wanted the flavor of all the veggies, but I can't stand eating cooked celery. I put 1/2 yellow onion, 3 stalks celery, and 5 cloves of garlic (all coarsely chopped) in chesse cloth and allowed them to boil into the soup before it finished, about 10 minutes, and then removed them. I also cooked the noodles directly in the broth and added sliced carrots at the end of it all. All in all, the best soup i've ever made at home!!!!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2005
I made these sugar-free, with splenda, for a friend that can't eat Carbs. He RAVED over them! Now I make them all the time with splenda. This recipe is great, and easy too. I make them into drop cookies and they always turn out great.

Boston Cream Pie II

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2004
Here's a trick I learned a couple of years ago about splitting the cake. Instead of using a knife to cut the cake, you can use dental floss. Just use a long piece of floss to line up the floss with center height of the cake, all the way around the edge. When the floss is all lined up, loop the ends over each other and pull through. This will give one perfect slice through the cake two make two thin cakes!

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2004
This recipe was delicious. I made a half recipe for our labor day party, and it went so fast that I should have made more. I added garlic powder and mustard powder, which I thought it needed.
