Lola's Horchata

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
Great drink. I changed it a little, but this is a fabulous base recipe. As suggested by another reviewer, I used whole cinnamon sticks instead. I mixed 1 1/3 cup rice, 2 cinnamon sticks, and 2 cups a water in a blender and blended. Then I added 3 more cups of water and blended a whole lot more. I poured it all into a pitcher and let it soak overnight--the time came out to about 17 hours by the time I got around to finishing it. I strained the mixture, then doubled the milk and added it. I actually more than doubled it just to finish off the jug--so about 1 1/3 cups. I used only 1% milk and I might use less if it was 2% or whole milk. Then I added 1/2 tbsp of vanilla like instructed which was plenty. I added half the sugar and tasted it--way not sweet--so I added the other half. I think it's a little too sweet for me now so I might just do 1/2 cup of sugar next time instead of 2/3 and see how that goes. Yum!

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
It was ok. I used marinated artichoke hearts instead of canned and I think that made it better. I only eyeballed the amounts of everything--2 "thwacks" of mayo and 1 of sour cream, a tbsp of minced garlic (I love garlic), and a few dashes of pepper. I added one dash of cayenne but you couldn't taste it so I think I'll add more for next time. I also think this would be better if you made the chicken separately and made the rest into a sauce. Next time I'll cook the chicken in a skillet and I'll mix up the mayo mixture in a pot, and maybe add some milk or something to make it more saucy to go with pasta. Overall I was happy with the flavor.

Neptune's Favorite Crab Bisque

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
I'm totally addicted to this easy bisque! Like others, I used only 3/4 c. the wine but I think I might use a whole cup next time. I added a few dashes of cayenne for a slight spice. I wanted my soup to be pink instead of white, so I added 8 oz of tomato sauce and it was fabulous. I think it made the flavor of the soup even better.

Cinnamon Pie

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
I tried this recipe twice and made it just like the directions said. The first time it came out in a jelly texture, and the second time it came in the jelly texture AND it had separated into two distinct layers. Very disappointed in this recipe after reading all the rave reviews. FAIL.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
I followed this recipe to a T. Everything was at room temperature, so that wasn't a problem and my baking soda is new. Maybe I over mixed, I don't know. I'm in high elevation so maybe that had something to do with it too. All I know is, they came out flatter than a sheet of paper and aren't even edible. Taking them out earlier didn't help either.

Pecan Crescent Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
Excellent recipe. These cookies are so yummy! Instead of dusting them with the confectioner sugar, I poured some in a bag and tossed the cookies in it while they were still warm. They ended up a little sticky because it was absorbing the sugar and I thought I might have to coat them again. But after waiting overnight they weren't sticky anymore (and still aren't) and they have the *perfect* amount of powdered sugar on them.
