Pretzel Salad II

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
Turned out very well. My changes: After you mix together the cream cheese and powdered sugar, substitute for the whipped topping: small container of heavy whipping cream (8oz) and an additional 2-3 Tbsp. of powdered sugar. Whip cream and sugar together until stiff peaks are formed. Blend this into the cream cheese mixture until smooth. Note: I used homemade whipped cream for a topping. I tried adding a pretzel topping but it was too much...better to use chopped nuts to touch it up if you desire.

Mac and Cheese Henwood Style

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
I'm giving this recipe 5-stars because the sauce is incredible. I do agree with a previous reviewer that you do need more noodles 1 cup/8oz is not enough. Other than that, the flour/milk/butter combination is perfect. You can build off of this by adding more than just onions...you could do garlic, red pepper flakes, or whatever suits your tastes. I added ham/bacon just for some meat. You can also vary your cheeses based on your preferences as well. Way to go...again, the secret is in the flour/butter/milk ratio...the rest you can alter to your liking.

Virginia Apple Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
Wonderful! Used a bread pan and it baked evenly throughout! Used 1-2 tsp. Cinnamon, 1/2 tsp allspice, and a 1/4 tsp. of nutmeg. Mix the apple mixture evenly throughout the batter...don't just plop it in the center. 2 cups of apples as written is good for a la mode. However, if you prefer to use caramel sauce and/or whipping cream as a topping, you may want to consider 3-4 cups of apples. After the apples are cooked in the microwave, you end up with only 1-1/4 cup.

Soft Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
Excellent. 350 degrees, 3 cups of flour only, butter instead of margarine for about 8-9 minutes, and for a delightful fragrance and flavor add 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1 tsp. of cardamom. It gives it that Scandanavian/Northern German fragrance that is so welcoming at Christmastime.

Marinated Pretzels

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
Very good. At first the dill seemed a bit much, but my wife and I began to crave them. I would say adjust the amount of dill weed according to your preference, but the balance of dill and salty pretzel is both novel and refreshing.

Eggnog II

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
This recipe was absolutely wonderful. You must know that it is a thick yet light nog, so drinking it is a bit different than a nog you'd buy in the store. I agree that you could choose not to whip the cream at all and it probably would turn out closer to a store nog. I added cinnamon and nutmeg directly into the cooked nog before adding the whipped cream. About 1 tsp. each. It gives it a nice flavor without being too powerful. If you do cook the nog too long, like the previous review, get a strainer to take out any unwanted textures that form in the nog. When you fold in the whipped cream it'll hide a slight over-cooking. Again, it's a thick nog but not dense. Consider not using the egg whites when making this recipe.

Perfect Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
Excellent. I made alterations based on the reviews, and the pie was incredible. The flavors married perfectly. I also added a tsp of vanilla to the filling. Alterations are thusly: Added 1-2tsp. cinnamon and 2 Tbl. of brown sugar to the crust. Used butter instead of Crisco, and 8-10 Tbl. milk instead of water. The filling used 3 types of apples (granny smith, golden delicious, gala). The sugar consisted of equal parts of white and brown. The filling also included a small amount of maple syrup (1/3 cup approx.) and a 1 tsp of vanilla to help "marry" the flavors together (note the nice caramel syrup on the plate (look at photo with a slice of pie and ice cream). Got rave reviews.

Orange Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
I'm only giving it 4 stars because the recipe as written is not truly an orange cake. Alterations: Use an orange cake mix. (Duncan's Orange Supreme), vanilla pudding, and orange extract. I added a soft white frosting while warm creating a glaze effect. (A clear glaze would normally work, but the orange "glaze" included in the recipe I felt wasn't enough.) When I served the cake, I took the remaining orange glaze and drizzled it lightly on each slice when served. Perfect orange cake recipe!
