Orange Refrigerator Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
After having followed all the directions, I think I'll find a different Orange cake recipe for the future. I found the angel food cake to be too spongy and it didn't seem to absorb any of the orange or creme flavors. Also found the filling to be slightly bitter (possibly due to the orange peel) and with only a subtle orange flavor.

Dulce de Leche

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
I just finished this recipe, and it is AMAZING!! I am a caramel FREAK (Yes, I know Dulce isn't the same, but it may as well be to my taste buds!), and this is my first time trying to make anything like this. I followed the previous reviewer's variation: 4 Cups 2% milk, 1 Cup sugar, 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, and 1/4 tsp baking soda. I didn't have a problem with the sugar caramelizing over medium heat... I'm thinking it is probably because I have 'gormet' copper bottomed stainless steel pots. The whole process only took me an hour from measuring my milk to ending up with my dulce de leche topping for the cheesecake that's in my oven. Tastes awesome!!!

Excellent recipe... I'm going to try different flavors of cake mix coupled with different flavors of extract for more variety!

Veal Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
I always love cooking this recipe whenever I'm in the mood for some gourmet italian food. Whenever I can't find veal stew meat, I substitute lamb and it turns out great, but not as tender as the veal. I tend to serve this stew over herb and garlic pastaroni.

Beer Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2007
I made these with my brother's girlfriend, and we did alter the recipe, using 1/2 all-purpose and 1/2 whole wheat flour; we also used a little less beer and added craisins to the mix and pecans to the top of each cookie. They were awesome, although more the consistency of muffins. My brother's girlfriend remembered the alterations and made beer muffins later and reported that they turned out better than the cookies. A suggestion for the beer to use: we used a Sam Adam's seasonal cranberry lambic ale. I'd also suggest a cherry wheat or other types of wheat beers to give these cookie-muffins a more hearty flavor.
