Margaritas

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
Fabulous! It would be 4 stars as shown, but 5 stars for how we did it. Made as directed but included a couple of additional suggestions from Cooper: added a scoop of frozen pineapple concentrate to the mix and then floated a tiny bit of Grand Marnier on top. As good as - no, better than! - any margarita I've ever had. (Making it as shown was a bit too sour for us - the pineapple was the perfect antidote. OJ would be good too but I didn't have that on hand.) It was a verrrrry good party! :)

Spiced Bacon Twists

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
FANTASTIC! Everyone loved it! Needs double the spices to make a difference - otherwise it's just sweet bacon (tho there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, either).

Lemon Schaum Torte

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
Elegant. Not difficult. A bit different. Make-ahead. Lots of things I reeeeeally like in a recipe! Served it to 16 women at a special luncheon and they loved it. Did not use the cinnamon - that doesn't seem to fit this list of ingredients - but did do a squiggle of raspberry puree on each plate (color and taste were perfect with this). Next time I would make 1 1/2 times the amt of lemon curd - I would like to see much more of that delicious stuff.

Microwave Spiced Nuts

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
I've made about six batches of these this year already and am getting ready to make another - they're wonderful! I start w/ pre-toasted nuts (using walnuts 'cause they're the cheapest) which I buy in bulk. When they come out of the microwave I spread them out and immediately sprinkle them lightly with kosher salt. Absolutely delicious! Also, when I buy nuts of any kind I always toast them as soon as I get home, put them into storage containers (zip type baggies) and keep them in the freezer. Nuts keep forever that way and are so much better when toasted.

Balsamic Bruschetta

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
Squeezed out extra juice on 4 roma tomatoes. Used a pint container of mixed red/yellow cherry tomatoes (color was nice!), cutting them in quarters. Per others suggestion, added extra parm - probably 1/2 again more. Also added several Tbls of small chopped red onion. Delicious!!! Had a little left over and used it on tamales, with a dollop of sour cream (that's where the saved juice really made its mark!). Delicious again. Only problem: it falls apart easily as there is nothing to bind it together. Several guests wound up with it on their laps. Next time I might put a very thin slice of cheese (mozz?) on top and slide under the broiler for a moment - but then, that really changes the whole thing and it really did taste great as it was. Just warn your guests, I guess . . . .

Urban Legend Cookies II

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
LOVED this cookie! Used 1 3/4 c of each of the sugars (that was plenty) and 1 1/2c of choc chips 'cause that was what I had. Did not bother with the grating of extra choc. Processed 1/2+ the oats to get fine powder and rest left as oatmeal (we like oatmeal). Next time will add a bit of cinnamon and maybe nutmeg. Took some to work - they disappeared in seconds.

Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
EDIT: I've now made this 6-7 times in the last few months and have made it much better for us with minor changes. I follow as directed but add 1 t. baking powder and a splash of milk. To cook I start with a hot pan and turn the temp down to med at best, cover w/ the lid slightly ajar, and cook more slowly than a usual pancake. This produces a terrific, low carb, high protein pancake that is not quite so flat or blintz like. I usually get 5 pancakes, about 5-6" across. ORIGINAL REVIEW: Delicious - and very low carb. Four servings? - no way! I should have known when I looked at the ingredient list that this was not going to be enough for 4 - it was 2 servings at best. The commenter who compared them to cheese blintzes was right - they have that consistency, which we happen to like; we did not find them to be fluffy at all (which was ok). We like pancakes and usually have them over the weekend - this is a new and different one that everyone liked.

Blue Ribbon Curry Chicken

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
I've made lots of curry before and this one is excellent - and VERY easy. It's very accepting of almost any veggie you'd like to add - my faves are thin carrot strips, fresh green beans, and even potatoes. Also a great use of a rotisserie chicken from the store. Easy to make more or less hot and/or spicy according to your family's preferences (I've changed via amounts and types of spices: more or less curry, cumin including toasted cumin seeds, hot pepper flakes, etc). And since I have most of these things in my cupboards all the time anyway - voila! I did use milk tho cause no 1/2-1/2 in the fridge. My favorite part of curry is the toppings so I always have some combination of the following: toasted coconut, sliced green onions, banana slices, toasted almond slivers (my favorite), raisins or currents, chutney, or chopped peanuts. My family loves this stuff!!! EDIT: used coconut milk tonight - makes a really delicious and creamy sauce.

Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
Doubled the recipe and got 60 cupcakes. Used a bit more peanut butter and a bit less shortening than called for - wanted more peanut butter flavor and I got it! Frosted w/ chocolate buttercream frosting and topped with 1/4 of a smallish peanut butter cup - not the regular "big" size and not the miniatures either. (Only place I've seen this size was Walmart and they were 8/$1.) Baked them in the morning and frosted them in the afternoon; ate them the following day and they were VERY well received. (Made an equal number of red velvet cupcakes - these peanut butter ones were most popular with the kids and the RV with the adults - interesting, tho I suppose not surprising.)

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
Added vanilla, used olive oil instead of butter, let sour milk sit for 20 minutes before adding and batter for about 20 minutes before cooking. Really tasty!

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
Very thin - despite the fact that I added an egg yolk for extra richness (which was the only change I made). Good as a sauce - not as pudding.

Apricot-Nut Spread

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
Absolutely delicious! As a recently diagnosed diabetic I'm on the lookout for low-carb recipes and this has to be my favorite one so far - with 0 carbs! I was a huge carboholic (thus . . . diabetic) and love to bake and enjoy sweets. For this I added about a tablespoon of agave syrup and had it on a multigrain muffin. Love those breakfast dinners! My friends enjoyed it as much as I did - and they have no carb worries. Next time I will simmer the apricots in the water to speed up the process - and probably add the sweetener at that point.

Party Mimosa

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
Serves 15? Are you kidding me?? No way! Unless most of the people present hate one of the ingredients. I had five for brunch and we drank the whole thing - it was fabulous! Didn't do anything different, tho my juice combos were a bit switched around just because of what I could find in the store. By the way, I found the juices (for example, apricot nectar and pineapple/mango) in the Hispanic section. Floated fruit in the first glass and it looked beautiful; after that, nobody cared. :) This is so much more flavorful than regular mimosas - try it, you'll love it!

Cheese and Sausage Appetizers

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
Have made twice now. First time - good. Second time - reallllly good! Differences: mixed raw sausage (hot, not mild) and 1/4# (1 stick) of butter into dry ingredients. Used a bit more cayenne. Served w/ both a spicey salsa and ranch dressing so people had a choice for dipping. We all thought these were terrific! Because of the raw meat to start with, both times I cooked at about 375* for about 22-23 minutes. (On the second batch I purposefully froze about 6 of them in a single layer to see how they would do. Had those this eve. Baked them in a 425* oven for 7-8 minutes and then lowered to 375* for another 15-16 minutes. Worked great!)
