Wonderful English Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2012
Many years now, I've blindly purchased costly English Muffins at the store. No more. This recipe is so easy and tasty, I've started making my own even tastier and at a fraction of the cost. That old electric griddle I never use, now has a reason to stick around my kitchen.

Kalacs (Hungarian Cinnamon Swirl Bread)

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2012
I've noticed Summer bread baking, leaves my loaves smaller than in cooler months, since my house is air conditioned, it effects rise. This recipe was no exception, but I tried it anyway. First rise went great when I put it in the microwave with a preboiled cup of water to keep the heat contained. But second rise was not as full, even after almost 2 hours. But the flavor of this bread far outweighed the rise disappointment (not recipe error just housing conditions) I know this recipe will do just fine later in the season when my house is more suitable to nurture this eloquent bread.

Strawberry-Rhubarb Jam

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2012
Simply put, outstanding flavor and easy to make. This recipe, as is, was flavorful, however, I added a bit of cinnamon to add warmth to the flavor and it is a hit with my family and friends.

White Chili II

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
I used a precooked chicken from the store plus an extra can of white beans, that I pureed in a food processor. This was a huge hit and one I'll surely make to satisfy a hungry crowd. I served it with tortilla chips too.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
I love these soft chewy cookie. I added raisins cause an oatmeal cookie is not complete without them. The recipe states to push the cookie down with a fork, prior to cooking, but I didn't want more sugar so I just left them in a heap on the cookie sheet, and found they fell flat, just fine, without the added step.

Apple Crisp Cups

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
Sorry, the entire time I'm following the recipe I did't agree with two things. 1. the amount of butter is waaay to much. I didn't like the greasy feeling when eating them. 2. Cooking the apples prior to putting them in the oven, only makes the apples mushy. Even thought I disagreed with these steps, I made it as directed and disliked the outcome. If I remake these I will cut the butter in half and not cook the apples prior to putting them in the oven. Not my favorite

Valentino's Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
I had unexpected guests drop in over the weekend, so I needed a fast pizza crust recipe. Not only is the recipe fast and easy, it tastes amazing. It's a thick softer crust, which makes it versatile for bread sticks by adding garlic powder. I also added rosemary, thyme and fennel seed to my crust. It received rave reviews and no one was ever aware it was the first time I made it. All my guests requested the recipe. Amazing, will use again.

Home Made Top Tarts!

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
I had some store bought crust in my fridge and was eager to test this out. Nice concept, regrettably these were not a hit in our house. The crust lacks the flavor of pop tart crust.

Chelan Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
The recipe prepared as written has insane calorie count, I didn't care to much for the flavor. so made it again this time reducing eggs to 2, with only 1 can soup 1/2 cup Chardonnay. With continued tweeking it might work, but as written I just didn't work for me.

Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
I've made this recipe several times now and absolutely love it. I use Ghirardelli 60% Bittersweet Cacao Chocolate (found at most grocery stores) and the rich dense flavor, almost tastes like a brownie rather than a cake. Rather than using a cake pan, I spread the mix on a long cookie sheet and bake. When it's finished baking and cooled, I take a round cookie cutter (or drinking glass) and cut out biscuit size rounds and stack them, three high while placing fruit and whip cream between each layer. Top with fruit of your choice along with whip cream and a drizzle of pureed fruit and you're set. Highly recommend this recipe.

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
I've made this hummus over and over again, it's my goto recipe for snacks or meals. Flavor is outstanding too. I find roasting my own peppers to be cheaper and provide a far more superior flavor. I also make my own tahini, which can be costly if premade. Not hard to do if you have a food processor or blender.

Ginger Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
I gave this recipe to my 16 yr to make for my b-day present. I had not baked it prior so I was not sure what to expect. (Risky yes) While I enjoyed the flavor, it did need a longer baking time (by at least 10 min) than indicated in the recipe.
