Carrot Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
Based on other reviews, I made it with only 1/2 cup of sugar and it was perfect! It was still sweet, but not sickeningly so. Our 4 children (ages 10, 8, 7, 2) all loved it and begged for more. This worked well as a after-school treat, a dinner side, or a breakfast side. It had less than a tablespoon of sugar per slice, so I was happy to let my kiddos have seconds.

The Best Thai Curry-Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2012
This tasted ok. There was WAY too much peanut butter and sugar.

German Spaetzle Dumplings

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
Delicious. Just like the texture I remember from Germany but with more flavor. I used basil in place of the parsley because that's what I have. I used a colander and it was a phenomenal mess! Next time I'm going to do the plastic-bag-with-holes method another reviewer mentioned.

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
So simple you almost don't need the recipe. Still this turned out perfectly. I used a combination of pork and beef brisket and I really liked the combination of textures.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
I liked it but it wasn't perfect to my taste. Next time I will make it less sweet.

BBQ Glazed Homemade Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
This was delicious and a big hit. We will definitely be making this again. It was a bit too sweet. Next time I think I will leave a bit of the sugar out of the sauce and add some vinegar. It came out like candy- delicious but very rich.

Russian Pancakes - Blini

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
This was just ok tasting but not what I was looking for. All of the blini I've had were yeast risen (some had buckwheat some not). These didn't have the flavor- they were more like watery crepes.

Mom's Apple Fritters

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
These weren't flat enough- they were more like dumplings. Next time I'll try piping the batter into the oil to try to get it flatter. The batter wasn't sweet enough for my taste. The end result was more like a puffy, savory, scone. Next time I'll add a lot more sugar to the batter and glaze them. The apple to batter ratio was too high. The apple pieces burnt in the oil. I'm going to double the batter next time.

Stewed Cabbage

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
Nothing earth-shattering but good, cheap, comfort food. I added bacon instead of the butter and added some caraway. It was very good.

Marzipan Christmas Kringle (Juleskringle)

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
I was looking for something to bake on Christmas that was a little fancier than my standard cinnamon rolls. This was perfect. The dough is nice to work with and is very delicate and has fantastic flavor. The end result is very pretty- it's a shame we ate it before I thought to take a picture. A couple tips: Make sure to seal the seams very very well- it has a tendency to blow out. I couldn't find almond paste so I ran some sliced almonds and some butter in the food processor until it was smooth. I don't know if that is very authentic but it tasted great! If I could rate this a 4.5 I would for the following reasons: 1- The dough is very fattening with the heavy cream, 2- The cardamom makes this relatively expensive to make

Eggnog II

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
Simple but just what I was looking for in a cooked eggnog. I made it the first time with the cream but it was almost too thick. I left out the cream and added rum flavoring. It's just like the store bought eggnog that I love but at less than 1/4 the price. Some tips that made this easier for me: Cook this over medium heat in a double boiler (or in my case a metal bowl over a pot of boiling water). This will make the cooking take a little longer but will all but eliminate the risk of curdling. The target temperature should be 170F. This is hot enough to kill any bacteria but not hot enough to make scrambled eggs.

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
This recipe was extremely easy and the texture was perfect. The brittle lacked the depth of flavor of traditional peanut brittle. It is good but not "just as good" as the author claims.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
The flavor and texture were fantastic. I gave the recipe a 4 because it requires modification- I added cinnamon to the apples as other reviewers recommended. I should have also added some of the sauce to the apples and the rest to the top. The recipe as written doesn't work. That much sauce will not fit on top of the pie and is too viscous to enter the pie unless you have a very open lattice top. I didn't. It made a mess but was delicious.

Breakfast Kolaches

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2006
These were perfect! They taste just like the ones from my favorite kolache shop. The dough is the important part of this recipe- you can fill it with whatever you want. One note: The portions seemed wrong to me since they were so small. They aren't the dough is moist and rises a lot.

Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
We replaced the mayo with sour cream and increased the onion. It was fantastic! The flavor was intense and tangy. The peppers were subtle. The kids loved it. I think this will be a staple.

Pumpkin Bars I

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
This recipe turned out a bit too tendy. It was difficult to serve without it falling apart and can definitely not be called a "bar". It's more like a cake- still it tastes really good.

Homemade Yogurt

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2006
This was ok. The flavor was good but not amazing. Make sure not to stir it or it will separate and be runny.
