Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2012
the texture was perfect. I let my donuts over rise, so they fell when I picked them up to put them into the oil, but puffed right back up in the oil and came out the perfect donut texture. I have to disagree with the first review though, next time I will definitely add more sugar to the dough. I don't like my donuts over frosted, and like at least *some* sweetness from the actual donut. This recipe as written produces a pretty bland donut without the frosting.

Chile Rellenos

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
This recipe was almost a total fail. The batter was soooo thick. Even after following the recommendations to use 2 eggs and whip the whites it was just a thick goop. The first two rellenos had so much goopy batter that cooked up and slid right off the pepper they were a disaster. So I added a third egg and just enough milk to make the batter a normal, although thick consistency. I also skipped the first dip in flour as that just made the batter not stick at all. With the milk I was able to dip and coat the entire pepper. I used Anaheim peppers and they were just right for my taste, just hot enough but not overwhelming. My husband who has a higher tolerance didn't think they were hot at all.

Authentic Enchiladas Verdes

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
Resist the temptation to Americanize this dish by smothering it in cheese because you will miss out on a wonderful experience. Excellent recipe, but be forewarned you'll never want to eat American Enchiladas again!

Watermelon Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2011
I loved it, my husband not so much. I left out the tabasco b/c I’m not a fan of hot salsas but may try adding it in moderation next time. Also make sure the onions are sweet or it will over power the dish. Great combination and fabulous with chips on a hot summer night! I served it as a side with Margarita Grilled Chicken.

Apple-Cinnamon Syrup

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2011
excellent! It’s like eating apple pie without the crust. If I’m using it as a syrup though, I prefer to dice the apples into small cubes. Goes great with crepes.

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
I didn't have nuts onhand, so I left the brown sugar mixture out and it still turned out extra delicious!! I also nearly doubled the blueberries b/c we love them so much. This cake is super moist and was the hit of the morning! This recipe will definitely become a standard "go to" dish in our home!!!
