Bloody Broken Glass Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2014
This review is only for the glass. The glass caramelized like crazy. I think there is WAY too much water. I don't think you need that much water. It's all going to cook off anyway. You only need enough to make the sugar a little sludgey, so all you're doing is adding to your cooking time. Also, higher temp IS better. Sugar has a small amount of protein in it, so the longer you cook it the more likely it is to turn brown, even at a lower temp. High and fast prevents this.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2013
This recipe was phenomenal. We don't have a lot of pancakes at our house (my partner loves them, but I'm more of a savory breakfast kind of girl), but they're a must-have on Fat Tuesday! These were perfectly light and fluffy and omnomnomnom. I'm usually quite annoyed with reviews that say "This was great, I just changed everything about it!!", but I did just make a couple adjustments for preference, flavorwise. I used lemon juice instead of vinegar, added 1TB sugar (didn't need it), 1/2 tsp vanilla extract and, because this is how we roll, 1/4c shredded coconut. Boom. Ate it topped with butter at Lyle's Golden Syrup. Cannot give this enough stars!! PS, use whole milk for best results

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2007
What a snap to whip together! Definitely not the light, fluffy macaroons that I'm used to, but quite delicious! Couldn't eat too many of them though, as they are so rich! I used half vanilla and half almond extract with success. I used parchment paper sprayed with professional Pam and they came off with no trouble whatsoever. Next time I think I would try packing the coconut firmly into the measuring cup and might try using sweetened coconut as others have suggested. YUM!

Figs Oozing with Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
I adapted this recipe recently for an culinary student cheese competition and came in 2nd place locally. The flavors were great and the presentation was beautiful. Unfortunately, there just was not enough cheese inside the figs. Hoping to squeeze 1TB of cheese inside was wishful thinking at best. :( In my version, I added chopped fresh thyme and cracked black pepper to the cheese, wrapped them in prosciutto and skewered them on rosemary stalks before grilling. For presentation, I served them on a bed of red-wine vinaigrette-dressed micro greens with a honey and balsamic reduction drizzle ;)

Irish Brown Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2005
Needed to tweak the amounts a bit (but that could just be my ghetto measuring cup =/. Very very very tasty as a vegan bread, just replace the milk soy milk! (1c soy milk + 1T lemon juice) very impressed!
