Harvest Rice Dish

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2002
Tried this for the first time at Thanksgiving dinner for my in-laws. It was a big hit, and everyone asked for the recipe! One change I made in the interests of time was to substitute the rice from boxes of Uncle Ben's long grain and wild rice for the brown and wild rice in the recipe. I just left out the enclosed seasoning packets. I would definately recommend this recipe, and try it again! Went together very quickly on the holiday morning.

Scottish Shortbread III

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2006
Terrific shortbread, but I had to pull out the heavy stand mixer for a double batch. My in-laws have an annual XMas cookie bake, and my mother-in-law won't let me come unless I bring this dough to bake. I used half unsalted and half salted butter, and it had plenty of flavor for us! A real keeper!

Pasta e Fagioli I

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
My husband and I love this soup! It goes together very easily, and tastes like you've been working on it all day! I always add a little more liquid than the recipe calls for; in leftovers the pasta seems to absorb quite a bit of the "juice." Try using canned tomatoes with "extras" in them, like diced tomatoes with onion and celery, for even more flavor. Some folks might want to add a bit of sea or kosher salt if you use the low-sodium broth.

Jewish Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
The only thing wrong with this recipe is that it's very addicting! And brown sugar instead of the confectioner's sugar is definately the way to go!

Very Chocolate Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
We got a Cuisinart ice cream maker for Christmas this year, and this is the second-ever batch of ice cream, and the first custard-based, we've made. Everyone loved it! I did add one step to the prep, and that was to strain the mixture after adding and simmering the egg yolks, and before adding the chocolate. I was glad I did as I did find tiny pieces of "something" that came out in the sieve. Two other changes I made was to use semi-sweet baking morsels (I had no big block to use) and to add 1 tsp. of espresso powder to the mix. The chocolate chips did not melt all the way, but it added a nice texture to the finished product. The espresso powder idea I got from baking, where it does not add a real coffee flavor but really "kicks up" the overall result. My DH gave the review, "It tastes like professional ice cream!" My 7 yr old son just wolfed it down! I'll definitely make again!

Beef Stew II

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2003
I wish I'd read the other reviews before trying this recipe. The stew came out quite thin - I guess I was hoping the flour used to brown the beef would have thickened things up a little. Also, seemed somewhat bland, but that could be due to all the salt included in everyday packaged foods. I would try this recipe again, though, making the changes others did.
