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.

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!

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...

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 :)

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!

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!

Absolutely amazing! I whipped the first batch for the filling, layered with strawberry jam for some extra flavor. Then i draped the second batch on top of the three layers. Delicious!

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
I'm never going to use another pie crust again. This is amazing! No matter what I make, people always ask me for my crust recipe. Wow. I make it in my KitchenAid, allowing it to combine the flour and butter, and then I add the water afterwards. Make sure everything is COLD COLD COLD. I keep my flour in the freezer, so that's always cold. I chill my butter again after cutting it. I also put the bowl in the freezer for a few minutes before I use it. Make sure that your water is ice cold, by putting a few ice cubes in it while you're using it. After it's all combined, I wrap mine in saran wrap and refrigerate it before rolling it out.

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.

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!

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.

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
These were a hit! I took the advice of the other reviewers and altered the recipe ever so slightly, splitting the sugar so it was 1 part white and 1 part brown, and I added 3 whole bananas to make sure they had a strong banana flavor. Only 12 minutes and then right on to a cooling rack. These were eaten up so fast!!!!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 6, 2011
I made these today without any dairy. They needed to be Parve (dairy free), and so I used crisco shortening instead of the butter, and I used Parve chocolate chips from Trader Joes. I baked them on parchment paper, making sure to take them out of the oven after 10 minutes. I allowed them to set up on the pan, and then I moved them to a cooling rack. Delicious! I know they'd taste so much better with butter, but these are great for a Parve cookie.

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!
