Finnish Cookie Sticks

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
Follow the original recipe:). I read some of the reviews and omitted the egg paste before the almond/sugar roll because of the mess. You really had to grind the almonds very fine for it to stick well. I had leftover almonds, so I made the recipe again but did the egg paste. It really was not that messy! And the cookies looked exactly like the picture because the paste was able to grab on to the bigger pieces of almonds and to the festive Christmas sugar crystals. In the end, the cookies did taste the same but the 2nd batch had more of a crunch...yummmmm.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
Excellent! I used a glass dish, so I lowered the temp to 325 degrees and cooked for ~32min. The frosting was a bit thick...I think I would just put in 3/4 cup of confectioner sugar next time. The brownie was chewy and fudgy!!! For those people who said that their brownie was "too cakey", you may want to try lowering the temp (especially if you are using a glass or dark non-stick pan) and don't overmix the batter; overmixing the batter will cause the flour to become too glutinous and cakey. hope this helps:)

Homemade Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
Very easy and very good. After reading the reviews, I took the advice to add herbs. I added 1 tbsp each of dried rosemary, oregano and garlic flakes prior to kneading the remaining 3/4 cup of flour. I am glad I added these herbs because it probably would have been a bit bland. I also topped with parmesan and course sea salt. USE THE SEA SALT!!! With the sea salt and the herbs, my focaccia looked and tasted like the ones at the italian restaurants!! One more thing, I just eyeballed the rising time. I actually let the dough rise for a good 1 1/2 hrs-2hrs in knowing that I wanted a fluffier type bread. I made two batches - one that I kneaded by hand and another using my Kitchen Aid stand up mixer...both were a success (use the hook on the mixer...much easier and less clean up). 4 stars because I had to add to the recipe.

Penne with Chicken and Asparagus

Reviewed: May 20, 2006
Very tasty! I didn't have any chicken, so i used smoked salmon instead. I also added red and green peppers and a tsp. of red pepper flakes for a kick:). This only took me 20 mins. from start to finish...definitely will make this over and over again!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2006
Maybe I didn't make these cookies right, but I found this recipe to be too "Eggy". It could be the taste of the shortening, but I won't make these again. I also used a cookie scooper to form the balls, and I found the cookies did not spread at all.

Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
I cut down the sugar to 1/2 cup because it way too sweet even with a more tart rhubarb. The lattice pie crust and letting the pie sit for 30 min before cutting did help with the runnyness. I found that because the texture of the the filling was a bit more watery, it may have helped to cook the bottom pie crust for 10 min prior, letting it cool, and then place the filling and the lattice top crust. My pie crust on the bottom turned out too gooey. I will try cooking the lower crust.

Quick and Easy Thai Style Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
Very tasty! I can see how some people may not like this because of the fish sauce taste (so if you don't like fish sauce, you should use another recipe). I did add some cilantro and chili sauce for more flavor. I will definitely use this recipe again.

Pineapple Stuffing

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
FIVE STARS all the way! I have tried other recipes and his one tops them all! I tripled the recipe and it just fit into a 9x13...use a drip tray though (my mistake). I baked it covered for 45 min and then took off the foil to brown for 15 more min. I found the stuffing to be a bit moist, but I left the stuffing in the oven with the oven off to keep warm until dinner (~20 min) and was perfect!

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
delish! i wanted to add protein to this recipe, so I cooked up a chicken breast (bone-in) and simmered it when the broth was added. I also added potatoes here. I took the chicken out and cut it up into pieces before I added the milk/flour mixture. absolutely tasty!

No Roll Pie Crust I

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
this crust works best when you only need a bottom crust. It also would help if you bake the crust for 10 min, cooling, and then place the filling. I found my bottom crust to be too gooey. It was very difficult to make a top crust with recipe because it does not roll out easily. tastes good though, but not flakey.

Pecan Tarts

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
fantastic!!! The cream cheese pastry makes this seemingly sweet dessert not so sweet! I made the pastry early and it lasted a couple days in my fridge. A definite must!

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
Perfect!I definitely agree with the other reviews that this tasted better than the canned icing. I followed the other by measuring the icing first and then sifting. I also added more cocoa (instead of sugar) to get the right consistency. Instead of adding just vanilla, I added half vanilla and half strong brewed coffee to bring out the chocolate. YUM! My girlfriends and I licked the bowl clean after icing our cupcakes. (BTW-I have no idea how some reviews mentioned their icing was runny. They may have just measured the liquids wrong.)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
I got a lot of compliments on this recipe, but I think I will follow some of the other reviewers advice and add some graham cracker crumbs to the peanut butter. The peanut butter was soft and creamy, but I think it would taste a bit more like "Reeses" if the graham cracker crumbs were added. I used a silicone mini-cupcake pan and it worked out perfect...the cups just popped out and didn't even use a nonstick spray. Good chocolate fix.

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
FABULOUS!!!The party loved this and was asking for more when the HUGE popcotn bowl was quickly emptied:). I popped closer to 7 qts of popcorn and felt it was perfect. I suggest if you don't want the popcorn to be drenched with too much caramel, pop more popcorn,

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2006
I LOVE this icing! I really do think this is the best icing to use on sugar cookies and recieved tonnes of comments about how glossy it looks. Although, I am glad I read the reviews before making this recipe the first time because you really DO need to use more milk. This recipe is full proof!
