I never made a scone in my life (in fact I don't do all that much baking beyond cookies and an occasional cake). We had just returned from a trip to Ireland and scones were on the breakfast menu everywhere we went. When we got home my wife was lamenting that she missed the scones so I thought I would give it a whirl. The dough is sticky and tough to work with and I thought I screwed up the recipe, but man these were as good as any we had across the pond! Thanks for sharing. I'll be making these again.

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2012
Ding ding ding ding ... we have a winner! My wife, daughter, and daughter-in-law are big sangria fans - especially in the summer. I made this over the weekend, and it was a huge hit. I didn't have limes or cherries so I substituted a frozen margarita mix for the lemonade concentrate. That gave it the lime flavor, and I don't think we missed the cherries. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly using the club soda instead of ginger ale. Great recipe! We'll be doing it again. Thanks HJACOBY!

Amish Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
Christina: This is an AWESOME slaw recipe. My wife really doesn't care much for mayonnaise, and once I reviewed this I thought it was worth a try. Everybody just loved it (including her 92-year old father!). This will become a standard in our household, I think. I didn't (and won't) change a single thing. Thanks so much for posting it!!

Baked Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
I was a bit conflicted as to how to rate these. If I have to rate them against all buffalo wings (including fried ones) I can't give them a 5 because they are just not as crispy. BUT, as baked wings go, these are better than anything I've ever had. These did have a bit of a crunch to them, and were definitely unlike any other baked wings I've ever made (which usually come out soft, soggy, and greasy. As other suggested, I made sure mine were dried well, and gave them a couple of hours to sit with the flour mixture on them. I cooked them on a wire rack so any grease would drip into the pan below. Definitely worth making if you don't want to do fried.

I made this exactly as the recipe specified. It was AWESOME! I will make it again and will not bother tinkering with the recipe one bit.
