Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2005
This bread was outstanding!!! For those who had trouble slicing the bread, cut with an electric knife when the loaf has cooled. I also use a "bread slicing guide" for uniform slices. It's worth the investment.. believe me (SEE MY PHOTO). Also for those who use jarred BREAD MACHINE yeast, the amount is 2 teaspoons for a 1 1/2 pound loaf and 2 3/4 teaspoons for a 2 pound loaf. (Keep in mind the measurements differ for "active dry" yeast versus "bread machine yeast").Thanks for the GREAT recipe, using simple ingredients!!!

Snickerdoodles V

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2005
This recipe is a delicious classic!! However, my recipes specifies 1/2 cup shortening and 1/2 cup butter instead. I usually add an extra tablespoon or two of flour to the batter and then chill it for several hours before baking. This ensures "thick", perfectly formed cookies. View my submitted photo and see for yourselves. Thanks for the recipe!!! This one ROCKS!!!

McCormick's Beer Can Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2005
I made this in the oven instead. I cooked it at 350 degrees (bottom rack) for 90 minutes. I also added some spices inside the beer can as well. Great recipe!!!

Sweet and Sour Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2005
This salad was outrgaeous!!! I followed the recipe EXACTLY as indicated, however, I did blanch the broccoli for a few minutes. This gave it a bright green color and nicer texture. For those people who are concerned about fat grams, follow these simple steps: substitute some water for the oil in the dressing, use 1 TBS of butter for sauteeing, and used baked ramen noodles instead.Another option would be simply sprinkle them on top without frying them at all. Thank you for the recipe!!!

Aunt Anne's Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 20, 2005
I made the cake EXACTLY as indicated, however I increased the batter by doubling the it because I wanted a thicker cake. The results were perfect!!! For those who had problems with the streusel topping sinking into the batter and cracking during the baking process, follow the simple step. After preparing the topping, place the entire bowl (not the batter) into the freezer for several hours or overnight. Remix with a fork until they resemble small crumbs. Sprinkle on top of cake batter. Pat down gently with a large spatula (especially the corners) to ensure the topping "sticks" to the batter and also to even the cake out. I baked mine at 325 degrees instead of 350 and the cake baked and rose more evenly. Take a look at my photo. The cake was delicious and disappeared very quickly!! Thank you Mary for the recipe!!!

Mock Chopped Liver

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2005
This makes an excellent side dish or appetizer. I think it tastes best cold as it thickens after it cools. I added an additional 1/4 cup walnuts since I love walnuts. I served this with Armenian whole wheat flatbread. This recipe can be made vegan by using vegetable broth instead. Thanks Marcia for the wonderful recipe!!

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2005
This rice was excellent!! The only thing I did different was reduce to 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth and 1/2 cup tomato sauce (about half an 8 ounce can). I also added 1 chopped roma tomato. The liquid should not exceed twice the rice amount or the rice will be too mushy and liquid will not be properly absorbed. Instead of broth one can use water and 2 bouillon cubes. The rice came out perfect with those modification and feel free to view the photo. Thank you for the recipe!!

Restaurant-Style Spinach Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2005
This side dish is deeelicious!! I saute the chopped onions in olive or butter for 5 minutes first. There is no need to add the flour or additional salt. Second of all, I used Campbell's cream of chicken/mushroom soup. Third of all, make sure your spinach is squeezed DRY (as dry as possible). I do it by hand over a colander. You can add 1 Tbsp of milk or so if it is too thick. This is one of my favorite side dishes. Thank you Stephanie!!
