Microwave Lemon Curd

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
I tried this last week with Meyer lemons and oh, my, is it delicious. I made 2 batches because I had quite a few lemons and hesitated to try doubling the recipe. I'm glad I made the 2 separate batches because it gave me an opportunity to test the time required to get the curd the right thickness. I cooked the first batch about 8 minutes, stirring with a whisk after each minute. In my opinion, it never did get quite thick enough, but it tasted great. On the second batch, I cooked it about 4 minutes and then didn't get back to stir it for perhaps another five minutes. It was nearly right. So I cooked it one more minute (a total of 5) and left it unstirred after the final minute. It came out what I thought was the perfect thickness. Both batches were quite usable after a night in the fridge, but I think the second batch was the best consistency. I think perhaps I overcooked the first batch. Shorter cook time, and not stirring at the end, seemed to be the key to a better consistency. This got rave reviews as part of a cake I took to a ladies' dessert event. Several asked for the recipe. I will definitely be making this curd again!

Make-Ahead Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2010
These are an excellent substitute for the purchased frozen meatballs, and so much cheaper. I have to leave out the Worcestershire sauce because one of my granddaughters had an allergic reaction to it when she tried one of these meatballs hot from the oven. But they are still good basic meatballs. I think the plainer flavor makes them more versatile because they will go with different types of sauces.

Ground Beef Lo Mein

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
Absolutely delicious! As someone else mentioned, I expected this to be rather plain and bland (I made it for my elderly dad) but it is really good. I used the asparagus stir-fry blend (Walmart brand) and I did add a bit of extra soy sauce. I will definitely be making this again.

Cranberry Nut Bagels

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
These were truly delicious! I will be making them again and again, I'm sure. It was very helpful to me to read the other reviews. I took the advice to leave off the brown sugar-cinnamon topping, and they are just wonderful without it. This was my first time making homemade bagels, and I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was.
