Lemon Sugar Tea Cookies

Reviewed: May 11, 2003
This is the perfect summer cookie, especially here in the Southwest! This cookie is crisp on the edges, soft in the middle, with a very light lemony taste. These began to brown pretty quickly, so I decreased the oven temp a few degrees and baked for 10 minutes. I also made them a little smaller, using rounded teaspoons instead of the larger cookie. They did spread a little, but the tsp size bakes a perfect tea sized cookie. These are great!

Pecan Filled Cookies

Reviewed: May 11, 2003
These are pretty good. Be sure not to overbake, as they don't get brown, and they'll be hard as rocks if you eyeball them for "doneness"!! Very unique, and different from my usual cookies, but really good!

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: May 8, 2003
It makes me feel better to know there are so many others out there that have as much difficulty with pie crust as I do!! I usually don't make my own crusts, as they tend to be hard to work with, and come out tough. I tried this recipe for a strawberry pie recipe on this site, only because I didn't want to go to the store.....and I'm so glad I did! Simple to make, and with ingredients found in every kitchen. I try not to work with shortening, and the buttery flavor of this crust is to die for. It's flaky and crisp, but without being greasy. I used parchment paper to roll out the crust, and didn't use any flour, so it fell a little bit, but it's still pretty. I still have some work to do on my technique, but I'll never buy crust again. Thank you so much Dana!!

Banana Coconut Loaf

Reviewed: May 4, 2003
Well, this was interesting at least. I added crushed pineapple per another's suggestion--big mistake. Too much moisture, and it makes the bread heavy. Had that "not quite done" flavor even after cooking over an hour in MINI loaf pans. I think I would try this again, but without the crushed pineapple.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: May 4, 2003
I tweak this recipe a bit to be more like the teriyaki chicken you find in restaurants. I like to use boneless skinless thighs and slice them into bite size strips, then saute them in a bit of olive oil. Pour the sauce over the top and simmer until the chicken is supertender and shreds easily with a fork. The sauce gets a little bit watery this way, so once your chicken is cooked, remove it from the pan and bring the sauce to a rapid boil to rethicken. You can also add a little more cornstarch mixed in with water to help thicken the sauce. Stir in a splash of vinegar at the end to make the sauce tangy again. Serve over jasmine rice with steamed broccoli. YUM!!

Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2003
Very, very tasty. I omitted the tempeh, and made the dish with just the beans, and used a large jalapeno, and holy cow, is it spicy! Used the recipe on this website for the red enchilada sauce. I would make this recipe again, maybe next time adding shredded chicken. Good stuff

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2003
Sorry Cleo, I don't know which recipe you were making, but if you didn't like these, you did something wrong! This recipe rocks. I also made only a half batch, and added 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tbs vanilla, and 1 tsp baking powder to the recipe, as per the suggestion of others. These cookies are moist, chewy and soft on the inside, while crispy around the edges. My toll house recipe is going in the trash! Thank you SO much for sharing!

Absolute Best Liver and Onions

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2003
I made this last night for dinner at the request of my fiance. I have to admit, liver has never been my favorite dish, and I've never made it before, but this recipe was so easy, and it's true, the milk takes out all of the bitter taste. If it was good enough that I cleaned my plate, it deserves 5 stars!!

Waikiki Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2003
I have had this recipe in my collection for years, and have made it a million times. My family loves it. Here are a few tips to cut the prep time: Oven bake the meatballs at 350 degrees for 20 minutes on a foil lined broiler pan. The fat melts off, and the meatballs stay firm, instead of crumbling apart. Cuts down on calories and fat, and improves the taste. Also, when making the sauce, just dump all the ingredients in a saucepan at the same time, and whisk the heck out of it. No lumps, and cuts down on dishes. Enjoy! We love this recipe!

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2003
This is a great recipe. I used a little extra cayenne pepper, and doubled the jalapeno for extra kick. I also used sour cream for extra richness, and a tortilla pan to heat, but not fry, the corn tortillas. I was actually looking for a recipe for shrimp tacos, but was unsuccessful at finding one, so I used this recipe with jumbo breaded shrimp, which I oven baked, and cut in half, and the results were awesome! A very, very good recipe, and I'll be making this again soon, Thank you!

Cabbage Roll Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2003
This is, at best, okay. It still tastes like just the filling of cabbage rolls, and it's definitely missing something. I don't think I'll be making this again. The flavor is alright, but it's no substitution for cabbage rolls.

Apple Crisp I

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2003
I just pulled this from the oven, and practically ran to the computer to give it a 5 star rating. The topping on this apple crisp is heavenly. I was a little concerned with how dry it all looked before going into the oven, but never should have worried! I used granny smith apples, and tossed with a little sugar and cinnamon, and I also added some extra cinnamon and nutmeg to the topping, as well as a little extra walnuts. This is fabulous! The whole house smells heavenly. My family is always looking for great recipes to share, and I'll be emailing this one tomorrow! Thanks!

Albondigas Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2003
This is the BEST recipe for albondigas that I have found. Using medium salsa, I think, gives it just the right kick. It makes a huge pot though, so be ready for leftovers! I also used half chicken broth, and half beef broth with excellent results, as well as adding fresh chopped cilantro, and a little extra (cooked) rice. FANTASTIC!!!

Corned Beef and Cabbage I

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2003
We made this for St. Patricks Day this year with fabulous results. I didn't have any beef broth on hand, so I used homemade chicken broth, and it worked so well! Not overbearing the way beef broth can be sometimes, but enhanced the corned beef seasoning very well. I also used the leanest cut of corned beef I could find. Cooked the cabbage a few minutes longer as one woman suggested. I won't wait until next year to make this again!
