Old World Poppy Seed Roll

Reviewed: May 8, 2014
I used poppy seeds from GFS, and the filling was delicious. I thought it odd that the recipe did not call for the dough to have a "first rise" before forming the loaves. I don't know if the humid day was a factor, but the dough was so springy that I had a hard time rolling it out to the 12x16 rectangle, and while I stopped to re-read the directions, the dough rested a moment and was easier to roll. I baked it as directed, and unfortunately, I have more of a poppy seed cracker roll with a delicious filling. It is not bread-like at all. If I were to make it again, I would let the dough rise for an hour before rolling out to form the rolls, then let it rise again.

Best Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
This is a recipe I have used since childhood. We used to call it "cooked" buttercream frosting versus the confectioners sugar/butter beaten buttercream frosting. It is light and fluffy, not cloying and sweet like supermarket frostings. It colors well, and can take on varying flavors like orange, vanilla, almond extract, etc. The flour-milk roux does not have to ball up (although I have had it do so), it merely needs to thicken and cool before adding to the sugar and butter. Whole-wheat flour doesn't work well, so forget about trying to be healthier. In lieu of all butter, my mother used to use half butter, half shortening, and it worked surprisingly well. I have used both confectioners and regular sugar, however,it is important that the regular sugar is creamed with the butter until it is no longer grainy. You can use Baker's or castor sugar (which is regular sugar ground up to be finer)or grind your regular sugar up a bit in your food processor. The cake should be at room temperature when served, or the frosting will taste stiff and greasy. Use it all, it is not great leftover for the same reason.

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
The spicing on this was excellent, not too hot, but spicy enough to make it interesting. We sauteed the vegetables and chicken in a saucepan first, then put them in the crockpot with the other ingredients. We used Emeril's Essence as our Cajun spice, and chorizo sausage because we could not find andouille, and Costco's frozen seafood mix with shrimp, calamari, and mussels.

Chicken Asparagus Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2010
Delicious and easy. I also used just one half of a lemon because my lemon was particularly juicy and I put some of the mayo-mustard mix inside the rolls as well.

Crab Crusted Grouper

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
I followed the recipe as written. I probably would not make it again. I think there are better uses for good crab.

Dijon Crusted Halibut

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
After reading the other reviews, I used regular Italian bread crumbs for the mayonnaise coating, and panko crumbs for the final coating. Delicious!! However, I had to bake it for an extra 8 minutes, and put it under the broiler for 3 minutes to get it brown.

Paprika Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
I used half hot paprika and half smoky sweet paprika. Pork was tender. I would double the amount of topping because my family wanted seconds.

Glorified Hash Browns

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2006
I followed the recipe as written, though I wanted to add sour cream and onions like other hash brown recipes. It came out very rich, creamy and tasty. Some pronounced it the best cheesy hash browns they ever had.
