Rolled Buttercream Fondant

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
This is exactly what I've been looking for!! For years, I've made the Allrecipes Best Rolled Sugar Cookies recipe in combination with a basic buttercream (butter + shortening + vanilla + confectioner's sugar + a splash of milk). While the flavor was always fantastic, it has always bugged me that I could never get a smooth and neat looking cookie like with fondant. Plus, the buttercream never sets, so the cookies weren't stackable. Enter this new Buttercream Fondant recipe. This has the flavor of buttercream and the moldability of fondant! I found that I was able to roll the fondant pretty thin, and use my cookie cutters to get the exact shape of the cookies, and then just place them on top of the cookie with a thin layer of traditional buttercream underneath to help it stick. I took the advice of several reviewers and used half butter and half shortening for better flavor, and added food coloring while combining the corn syrup/butter/shortening. A few times, I had trouble lifting the fondant onto the cookie without it being a little flimsy and tearing. I found that it helped to work on a sheet of parchment paper on a cutting board, so I could stick the whole thing in the freezer for a few minutes first, making it firmer and much easier to pick up and move onto the cookies. I only found it to get greasy after handling it a lot. My taste testers seemed pretty impressed by my new fancy stackable cookies! I'll be making this again!

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
Really good! I used an olive oil mister, a tiny bit of sea salt, and cooked for about 5-7 mins. There is a slight brussel sprout taste to the kale, but not enough to be offensive. My husband liked them too.

Coconut Tilapia with Apricot Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
WOW, one of my favorite fish recipes ever! Tastes restaurant quality. The dipping sauce is amazing, sweet and tangy, and the fish was tender and moist with a light crispy crust. Though it may not be super healthy bc of the breading/frying, I will definitely make this again on special occasions.

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
excellent and extremely easy to make! i microwave the butter, garlic and lemon juice until the butter is melted, then pour over tilapia. It is pretty much a weekly favorite along with roasted creamer potatoes and steamed broccoli.

Magic Cookie Bars II

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
fantastic and easy! i increased the crust ingredients a bit (in proportion) for a thicker crust, and combined the graham cracker crumbs with butter before spreading in the pan. The crust was firm and awesome. Ive made this recipe to take on vacation and it was a hit. I will continue to make it over and over!

Almond-Topped Fish

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
yummy recipe. I really liked the flavor of the topping with the crunch of the almonds. My boyfriend was not crazy about it because the combo of the mayo & parmesean cheese reminded him of the texture of scrambles eggs, & he hates eggs. I thought it resembled something more along the lines of ricotta cheese.
