Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2005
Great crust! I made two pizzas with the dough. The dough puffed up really nicely in the oven. I loved it.

Mayonnaise Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2005
This is the first cookie recipe I've used that my parents actually liked! They were really surprised when I told them I made it with mayonnaise! The batter smelled really funky, but the result was surprisingly good. I used a little more mayonnaise because the dough was really dry, and it turned out really good. I only had low fat mayonnaise (with half the fat), but it still came together. The flavors definitely get better with time!

Applesauce

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2005
I chopped up a few HUGE Fuji apples, with the skin left on, and threw it into a saucepan. I used less water than the recipe specified, but it still turned out great. I ran the apples through the blender to chop up the peels and it tasted great! I didn't add any sugar as the apples were sweet enough. Yummy and super healthy!

Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2005
I used chicken breasts cut into strips. My mom offered to help me marinate the chicken since she doesn't trust me with raw meat and she added 4 cloves of garlic and A LOT of ginger! Even though those flavors were a little overwhelming, I could tell that the original flavors would have been awesome! I baked the breasts at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes. There were no leftovers!

Spam Musubi

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
This tasted just like the ones I get at in Japantown! Handling the rice was a bit tricky for me because it kept sticking to my hands, but it was worth it in the end. I might try using my rice cooker to cook the rice next time because I think the rice may have turned out a too mushy. The marinate for the Spam was delicious, but a lot of it dripped into my wok and burned as I was frying it. Shaping the musubi was time consuming, but it was a great recipe overall.

Cold Oven Popovers

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2005
These were great! I scaled the recipe down by 1/3 to make 4 popovers. There were still a lot of lumps in my batter because I was trying really hard not to overmix it, and it turned out beautifully. I knew I shouldn't open the oven before the 30 minutes was up because I didn't want them to fall, but I couldn't resist. I gave in and opened the oven to find beautifully golden brown popovers 7 minutes early. Two of them were hollow and puffed up beautifull while the other two were lopsided and still had a bready bottom. I filled the two hollow ones with a small scoop of ice cream (it fit perfectly!) and put them into the freezer for dessert. The other two, less pretty ones, were eaten right away. I may try to add a little sugar to the batter next time - just a personal preference.

Burger or Hot Dog Buns

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2005
These buns were great! I was a little apprehensive about the hot dog-sized lumps of dough I got when I tried to shape them into hot dog buns. They looked a little small, and I was afraid they wouldn't rise to be big enough so I made seven instead of the recommended eight. Boy, was I surprised when I pulled these out of the oven! They got huge! The smaller ones turned out to be the perfect size! I halfed the recipe and used the left over half of the egg for an egg wash. I wouldn't recommend doing this because the tops stayed very pale and looked kind of funky. I would definitely make this again.

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2005
This bread was delicious! I made it as part of an Italian-themed luncheon for my friends. Since I didn't have any thyme, I left it out. Next time I'll defintely add some because without it, the bread tasted like there was something missing. I let it rise too long while I was preparing the other foods, so it came out a little bigger than expected. My friends devoured it! Great recipe.

Biscotti

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2006
This is the best basic biscotti recipe ever! I made them as a quick last minute Holiday gift for my friends the night before Winter Faire (the last day of school before winterbreak starts) and everybody was impressed! I melted a few chocolate chips and drizzled the cooled biscotti with the chocolate before wrapping them in cellophane. They looked so professional that some people thought I bought them! I didn't have anise extract, so I used vanilla istead. Awesome recipe!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2006
These are the best brownies ever! I don't make the frosting because they are super rich and perfect without it. My friends loved it.

No Sugar Apple Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2006
Wow! This recipe is awesome. I used the Pie Crust III recipe (found on this site) and made a lattice design for this pie. To cut the sugar even more, I used regular apple juice and it turned out fine. I didn't have any green apples, so I used Fuji apples instead. It was delicious!

Vegan Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2005
These are the best corn muffins ever! I love the crisp tops. After a long baking streak, I ran out of all-purpose flour, so I used whole wheat instead. I didn't have any powdered eggs either, so I just used a regular egg. I like my corn bread on the sweet side, so I might add another tablespoon of sugar next time. I will definitely be making these often! Yum!

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2005
I used butter instead of shortening, and added more vanilla because the flavor of the butter was a bit strong. It dried up very nicely! I'll definitely be using this again!

Corn Dog Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2005
I made a corn muffin base from scratch since I didn't have any Jiffy on hand, and they turned out great! I only had a handful of mexican blend cheese left from making quesadillas, so I didn't use the full cup. I'm sure they would have been even tastier with more cheese! I also used a mini muffin tin and cut each hotdog into smaller pieces for bite-size corn dogs. They looked so cute! I'll definitely be making this again.

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2005
I can't believe it's this easy to make Kettle Corn! I never popped corn on the stove before, but I followed previous reviewers tips and it turned out perfectly. Making my own is WAY cheaper than buying it!

Pancakes I

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2005
I made these pancakes for the first time this morning. They were delicious! I followed the recipe as is, and didn't think they were too eggy. They were perfect! Since I only have a wok and a couple of pots in my kitchen, I used a wok to make one mini pancake at a time. It took a while, but it was worth it! I got 12 mini pancakes out of the original recipe. I also made my own syrup for it: Bring 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar (I used dark brown), 1/4 cup water, and about 1/2 tsp. vanilla to a boil in a small saucepan. Serve warm. Store leftovers in the refrigerator and microwave for 15 seconds, or until warm, to serve again.

Orange Sponge Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2005
Delicious! I whipped up this cake in no time yesterday. I served it today, and it was still super soft and yummy. I double-wrapped it in plastic wrap because sponge cakes can dry out easily. I used the zest and juice of one medium California naval orange. I used a square baking pan instead of a round one. It smelled awesome coming out of the oven! I didn't think it tasted very orange-y, but my family members thought it was perfect. I might add more zest next time. I would definitely make this again!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2005
I made these for my friend's birthday and she loved them! I refrigerated the dough then rolled them into big balls and froze them overnight before baking. The cookies turned out thicker this way. I also had to increase the baking time by a couple of minutes to get the beautiful golden brown color, but it may have just been my oven. Very chewy and yummy!

Oatmeal Whole Wheat Quick Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2005
I only had instant oatmeal on hand, so I used that instead of rolled oats. I also replaced the oil with a heaping spoonful of homemade applesauce to make it totally fat free. I was pressed for time, so I just dumped the batter into an 8 by 4 loaf pan instead of shaping it. I left it in the oven for a little longer than 20 minutes, so it was on the crusty side. Since I love crusty bread, it was perfect! Great recipe.
