German Apple Pancake

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2014
Looked beautiful (puffed nicely). However, many problems in recipe. First, way too much nutmeg. Second, the cook time is way off, it came out under-cooked. Third, too much butter. Finally, only major change we made was cutting 1/3rd of the sugar and it was stilltoo sweet.

Craving Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2008
This is a distinctive cookie and the result is quite enjoyable. The texture is more like that of a blondie, just in a cookie shape. I followed the recipe and instructions exactly and enjoyed the final product. This recipe is deceiving in that it seems simply (due to the few ingredients), but is actually hard to do correctly, because the dough is very dry. If the chef over mixes, the glutens will become tough and ruin the cookie.

Paella I

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2004
I found this took almost twice as long to cook as suggested in the recipe. I used clams rather than mussels, so that probably added 5-10 minutes, but even the shrimp didn't cook so quickly, just being covered -- I had to mix them in. Also, I used short-grain, white rice, rather than arborio. To get it starchy, I soaked it before using it -- this draws out the starch. It worked well.

Cheese and Bacon Potato Rounds

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2003
Fantastic, simple recipe -- it achieves great results all on its own. I did as someone else recommended and dipped the potatoes in butter rather than brush them. Also I thoroughly spiced with salt and pepper. After flipping once sprinkled with paprika. Yum! Everyone at the party loved it.

Easy Biscuit Mixture

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2003
Super easy. I scaled for 3 cups, and had to increase the resulting shortening to 2/3 cup.

Maple Glazed Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2003
Easy and delicious, I served at a party and it went over quite well. I used yams rather than sweet potatoes, walnuts instead of pecans, and skipped the coconuts. Also, I added parsley. I think this recipe is a bit heavy on sugar, I think it could be cut back a bit, perhaps using some oil instead?

Chinese Pork Buns (Cha Siu Bao)

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2003
The dough recipe was perfect, albeit very large. The stuffing however was pretty bad. I have made quite a few chinese dishes and this had the worst flavor. It needs to be sweeter and more vibrant. Next time I will use less oyster sauce and add honey and ginger.

Lobster Bisque I

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2003
This recipe was easy and delicious, although I don't think it was thick enough. I left out the green onions and used a bit more lobster. Also, I added some chicken stock for flavor. Next time I will reduce the stock longer (I let it go for 1h15m and it still was a bit to thin).

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2003
Outstanding!! I had to increase a bit for a 10" pan, but it came out spectacular. I was particularly impressed with the simple, eggless cookie dough part! My only change was to use chocolate-mint wafer cookies.. I think the subtle mint addition really adds to the over all taste.

Cherry Pie III

Reviewed: May 25, 2003
This recipe just barely created enough dough. I ended up creating a lattice on the top, because I didn't think there would be enough. I used a standard 9" pyrex pie dish. Also, I did half cherries half raspberries, because cherry pie is boring (I think). I switched almond extract to vanilla extra (better with cherries, don't you think?) Anyway, overall -- a basic pie, quite tasty.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 12, 2003
I scaled the recipe slightly to prepare it in a 10" form. I favored the white chocolate, because it seemed like it wasn't enough. Well, even still, my guests said they couldn't taste any white chocolate -- but I got the subtle flavor. I think had there been any more it wouldn't have set. Overall, good recipe!

Eclairs II

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2003
This is a very good recipe, but I made a few modifications: first, I used 1/8 cup conf. sugar and 1/8cup regular sugar in the filling; second, I piped the filling into the eclairs; third, instead of melting butter and choc, I melted choc in milk, and didn't need any water. And, because I piped the filling, I was able to dip the eclairs upside down in the chocolate. YUM.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2003
I substituted cranberries for raisins. The general problem with this recipe was that the cookies were too crunchy. Next time, I will use half butter / half crisco to make it softer, and perhaps a different baking soda / baking powder combo.
