Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2004
This cookie reminds me of marzipan! I was told by my friends and family that it was very yummy, and I definitely enjoyed them, too. I managed to make exactly 36 cookies (an amazing feat for someone who always gets the servings messed up) and filled 1/3 of the cookies with blackberry jam, 1/3 with strawberry, and 1/ with grape. I could have done without the icing because I could taste the powdered sugar, but everyone else said it was delicious. I might reserve a small amount of icing next time to thin out with more milk. Great overall!

Moroccan Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2004
This soup has an excellent Indian flavor. Some friends walked into the house just after I started to boil the soup and they commented on the wonderful aroma that filled the house! I used brown lentils instead of red, I used red kidney beans instead of cannellini (which is white kidney beans), and I diced my own carrots, tomatoes, and celery. Fresh is always better than canned! I also used bagged beans instead of canned because of the higher nutritional value bagged beans have, so I had to let the soup cook longer (I made it around 8 AM and it was ready by 9 PM. I didn't have any cardamom so I used 3/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon and 3/4 teaspoon of ground cloves. Garam masala is a spice combo of cinnamon, cloves, and black pepper, so you don't really need more garam masala... A great taste!

Cherry Clafouti

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2004
Excellent recipe. A few quick words: I used 1 cup egg substitute, a LITTLE less than 1 cup but more than 3/4 cup of soymilk. I've never used kirsch in my clafouti, so I just left it out. The dessert was still delicious and sweet and tastes just like a clafouti should. Also, I baked for only 35 minutes - it starts to brown quickly. Great overall! Delicious taste.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2004
Just made these biscuits this morning for Thanksgiving! Delicious! I didn't have any shortening, so I substituted butter. It came out nearly perfectly, but was just a LITTLE crispy. Made 11 regular sized biscuits. My advice: 1) Don't overbake. Even if they appear too soft, take out after recommended time. 2) I only used 2.5 teaspoons baking soda, heeding the advice of other reviewers 3) I used 3/4 cup fat-free milk. 1 cup is just too much liquid. The dough was still a BIT gooey with 3/4 cup, but the finished product is awesome. 4) I added an additional 1 tablespoon of sugar. I can't resist a little extra sugar, plus you can't really taste the sugar in the end product. I think just 1 tablespoon may have allowed the baking soda flavor to take over. The recipe is great overall, though. Everyone loved them at the Thanksgiving get-together.
