Ina Garten Lemon Tart

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2015
tough pastry dough; tart filling needed to be tripled to fill 11" tart so this recipe for as is for a 9" tart would need to be doubled at least! Filling was ok. We did a blueberry topping and that was the best part of the tart. Overall, not worth the effort - I would prefer a nice lemon meringue pie or lemon cheesecake :)

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2015
I would cut the brown sugar in the crumble topping considerably...much too sweet for my taste. The apples can withstand less sugar as well. Also, I would change flour to cornstarch since it does a better job thickening liquid so it isn't runny. My mom also used to squeeze a bit of lemon juice onto her sliced apples used in pies/etc. to brighten the flavor a bit. If you slice apples thinly, you shouldn't need the full 45 min to bake. Mine were about 1/2" thick and the baking time was perfect for the apples without making them mushy but it was a bit too long for the crumble topping and dried it out. Since the flour didn't thicken the 1/4c water (I halved what recipe required based on reviews), I ended up stirring the entire end product into itself so the dried-out/overbaked topping could be alleviated with the excess liquid that accumulated at the bottom.

Angie's Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2015
This is my absolute favorite version of the soup. Still outstanding with low-fat substitutes like NF dry milk and bacon bits and WW shredded cheese.

Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2014
Excellent!!! One of those meals where Bruce doesn't say a word until he's polished off his plate -- that's a genuine sign for an outstanding recipe and now a family recipe addition -- a keeper!

Krispy Kale Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2014
Not a big fan of these. They came out crispy but only after doubling the time and raising oven temp to 300 deg. The kale was a good batch, in season but just didn't like kale prepared this way.

Chinese Style Honey Hoisin Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2014
Would like to try braising these in oven rather than boil - dry heat covered in foil like we did in the Army for large scale cooking.

Yellow Butter Cake with Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2014
1st attempt: Didn't get much height but now know all ingredients need to be at room temp prior (eggs!) - takes an hour on the Leave out the baking soda and use 3/4 tsp baking powder (total)! Thinking it best to use 8" and perhaps stick with 2 pans. Lower the oven temp and extend the cooking time. The frosting is 'meh'...not worth the ingredients. No flavor. A quality chocolate would produce better flavor. However, the consistency was perfect.

Wonderful Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2014
I had Ghiradelli 60% bittersweet chips and semi-sweet Tollhouse chips on hand -- so for the batter, I did a 50-50 mix and then made the error of melting all 24 oz of the chips for the batter than just 1/2 melted and remaining 1/2 stirred in whole....sigh...but I carried on, followed the recipe minus whole eggs (I use EggBeaters) and reduced white sugar by 1/4 c. [I first tried reducing sugar by 1/2 c but batter was too bland]. I would say that the changes did not sacrifice the outcome one bit. The frosting -- sheer decadence. The brownies -- so chocolaty and rich. I would say this makes a brownie that is neither too fudgy nor too cakey -- but bang-on in texture and flavor and THE PERFECT BROWNIE recipe to have if you are going thru the trouble of making from scratch.

Best Beef Dip Ever

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2014
This was very good. I used sliced Angus roast beef and simmered all on stove top. I adjusted for the reviews that indicated to half the rosemary, swap beef broth for water and followed the recipe as written thereafter. Served on homemade garlic hoagie rolls, halved and toasted with sliced baby Swiss.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2014
Decadent - cut the morsels down to 1 cup and had to use 2-3oz small boxes of instant chocolate pudding (instead of the one large 5oz pkg called for) because it was all I had. Increased the water to 1 cup due to the density of batter with the increased instant pudding. Swapped coconut oil for the vegetable oil and used Egg Beaters instead of whole eggs for healthier option. This is a wonderfully dense, not-too-sweet chocolate cake that needs no frosting.

Cheddar Potatoes au Gratin With Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2013
Doesn't get any better -- perfectly creamy, right amount of cheese, ham and potato....onion flavor is so subtle (but needed!-make sure to cut smaller than "dice" but larger than "mince" size) -- right amount of potatoes to ham to cheese. Don't add more ham -- this is perfectly flavored as is!

Healthy version of Flakey Apple Turnovers (using Phyllo dough)

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
Too sweet; the phyllo dough did not hold up to the task of securing the apples. Best to rely on Apple Pastries recipe that was dad's favorite.
