One Bowl Chocolate Chocolate Cookie

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
The recipe as-is will make a gooey mess. Needed about 2 1/2 cups flour to make the dough hold together and a pinch of salt to bring out all the flavors. Still, with those additions it made a pretty good cookie. We used peanut-butter chips for a change.

Fresh Lime Curd

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
Really good! I used it as a topping for some mini-cheesecakes but I think I might make an entire pie out of it!

Parmesan Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
Mmmmm, delicious! Thanks to the earlier reviewer who said to add the flour slowly because this didn't take NEARLY what the recipe called for. Substituted 1 cup of flour for wheat flour and I DID use the lecithin. I proofed the yeast, mixed everything in my KitchenAid and kneaded it by hand. Still super easy and a relaxing thing to do on a lovely fall day. I got 2 9-inch cake pan loaves out of the recipe and it was totally enough. Not super-thick but good for sandwiches. Also I didn't add nearly as much oil on top of the bread as it called for and sprinkled Asiago cheese on top. 18 minutes was enough time in the oven for the thinner loaves. Crisp, flavorful and wonderful, it was delicious.

Pumpkin and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
Wonderful! I made this for a soup-sampler dinner and everyone loved it. I made the following substitutions: dark amber maple syrup instead of the liqueur, milk instead of cream and omitted the butter entirely. It was still delicious and everyone raved. Thank you for a great fall recipe!

Biscotti

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
Really good! I made a batch with toasted almonds, almond extract and 1/4 cup baking cocoa. Delicious and they looked good paired with the regular anise ones.

Walnut Maple Fudge

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
Quite good! I agree with a previous reviewer who said that the white chocolate taste was a little overwhelming. I upped the maple extract to 3 tsp, only added 2 cups of white chocolate chips and I can still taste the chocolate clearly. After reading the other reviews that said their fudge came out too soft I used a candy thermometer to make sure the sugar/milk/butter mixture got all the way to 234 degrees. It boiled for much much longer (I live at a high altitude, that might have been part of it as well). Either way, the marshmallows and chocolate melted just fine and it cooled to the perfect fudge consistency. I also toasted the walnuts before I added them and that was very good.

Spring Lime Tea Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2007
Very delicious. Not too sweet and just enough sour. I made these for a church meeting and everyone enjoyed them immensely. I added a tiny bit of green and yellow food coloring to the glaze to make it look very "limey" and it was a nice touch.

Lemon Dreams

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2007
Very good, so refreshing for summer! I made a double batch for an activity I was attending. For half of the cookies I used the lemon recipe exactly as listed. For the other half I used lime juice, lime zest and a drop of green food coloring. Everyone at the party loved them. The cookies have a tendency to puff up and close out the hole that you poked into the dough, so right as they come out of the oven I pressed the indentation with a teaspoon so I can fit more filling inside of them after they cool.

Basic Chicken Stock

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
This was delicious! I had a few pounds of split bone-in breasts that needed to be used and this was exactly what I wanted. I added a clove of garlic and some peppercorns into the mix. When the chicken was cooked through I took it out, pulled the meat off and tossed the bones back in for a little while. The resulting broth is so rich and delicious, it's wonderful! Since I made quite a lot, I'm freezing it in 4-cup increments. Boil some noodles and veggies in it, put the pre-cooked chicken back in and it makes such a yummy soup and it has a "cooked all day" taste, even though you can make it in about 20 minutes.

Tasty Buns

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
Easy and delicious. One tip: start with 4 cups of flour and then add what you need as the liquid mixes in. If the weather is dry you'll need less, I've never used the entire 5 cups and it's easier to add more flour than liquid. We made some hamburger and some hotdog buns, everyone liked them a lot. I sprinkled my shaped rolls with cornmeal and they were great. Now I'm going to end up doing this for every BBQ because store-bought rolls will seem second-rate! Thanks a lot!! (just kidding). Great idea, great recipe.

Mom's Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
Light and refreshing! I used just a little less sugar than the recipe called for and added celery salt and black pepper. My husband said it had a slight mayo taste so next time I might cut the mayo a little bit more. I thought it was perfectly delicous, a great addition to any summer BBQ.

Pigs in a Blanket

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2007
Exactly what we were looking for! I used crescent roll dough and a better-quality hot dog that had a little spicyness to it and they were delicious. My three-year-old loved wrapping the pigs and watching them bake. I microwaved them for 30 seconds like another reviewer suggested and they came out perfectly.

Horchata (Cinnamon Rice Milk)

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2007
I have to agree with the previous reviewers. This makes unstrainable starchy sludge. If you left out the step where you cook the rice and do everything else the same I think it would work out OK.

German-Style Pickled Eggs

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
You know I have never had a pickled egg in my life? My husband loves them except he just tosses hard-boiled eggs into leftover pickle juice and I thought there had to be a better method. Well, this is it! My husband and his friends said these are the best pickled eggs they've ever eaten in their lives! I added 1 hot banana pepper and about 1 tbsp of the juice into the brine because I thought the heat of the pepper might go nicely with the sweet/savory spices that are in this recipe. It was delicious.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: May 27, 2007
Quite good. I put in a tsp of vanilla like other reviewers suggested, and replaced 1/2cup of shortening with butter. I also replaced 1/2 a cup of the white flour with whole wheat flour. You can't taste the whole wheat flour but it gives a nice speckled appearance to the cookie and another layer of texture... plus it's a good way to sneak some more whole grains into your kids, who think they are just getting chocolate chip cookies! Delicious and will make again.

Herb Roasted Pork Loin and Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2007
Delicous! This came out just perfect, moist and flavorful. I bumped up the heat to 380 for the last half and the potatoes were nicely browned and the meat had a nice crust on it. As I was adding the boiled potatoes, I tossed in some big slices of carrots and onion and seasoned it all together. As the roast was resting I also stirred in a few handfulls of frozen peas for more color (the heat from the veggies warms them up just right). I'm glad I let the meat rest for a while, it stayed so juicy after I cut into it. As a side dish, I chopped up a few apples into a saucepan with 1/4 cup brown sugar and 2 tbsp lemon juice and let the whole mixture simmer for about 30 minutes. The whole meal got rave reviews, both from my family and another couple that I made this for. The only complaint was from my husband, who had to endure the tantalizing smells coming from the oven while he waited for it to be cooked!

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
This made perfect icing for cake-decorating. I used more butter as previous reviews have suggested and it came out exactly as I'd hoped.

Berry Tiramisu Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
Wonderful! My husband loves both berries and cream cheese, so I knew right off this was a cake he would really enjoy. I used fresh strawberries and blackberries and it was delicous. I added about 1/3 cup powdered sugar to the cream as it whipped up to make it just a little sweeter. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla to both the cake and the cream. It was superb! Thanks for the recipe!

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
Followed the recipe exactly and they came out perfect. The coconut was a nice touch, it gave just a little bit more texture and I really liked it. Hot from the oven and with a little butter... mmmmmmm. My family loved them. I might try them with some mini chocolate chips to make them special for my kids.
