Mexican Wedding Cakes II

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2005
I put these on mini paper cup liners as suggested and i ended up with about 70 balls. I grinded the nuts, not too fine, but next time i will probably just use chopped nuts to make them more crunchy. They do have that "melt in your mouth" effect. One thing, rolling them in confectioner's sugar make them look kind of sloppy, they look better (in my opinion) if you just sift the sugar on top of them, be generous with the sugar, they aren't too sweet. Everybody at the dinner party loved them.

Puerto Rican Pork Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2006
Very authentic taste. I also use some white vinegar and I make enough of the mixture to rub it outside of the roast as well. Lately I've been frying yucca instead of just boiling it. I cut the yucca in sticks, boil until cooked through and then fry them until golden and crispy outside. I sprinkle the yucca with garlic salt and then serve it all next to arroz con gandules. Very delicious!

Easy Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
Easy. Delicious. Very pretty too. Used 1/4c light brown sugar and 1/2c white sugar. Added 1t vanilla extract. Of course, make sure your fruit is ripe, sweet and delicious. That's the key.

Antojitos Minis

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2006
I made these as a snack for my son. Since he is SO picky I only added a can of shredded chicken (I seasoned it with fajita seasoning), salsa, and monterey/colby shredded cheese (in that order). I used a cookie cutter for the circles, and although I would have prefered the circles to be larger in diameter, they did work for the limited amount of fillings I used today (see my picture). For entertaining a crowd, I would suggest mini muffin pans. They came out of the pan easily and kept their shape. Baking the tortillas in the pan for a few minutes before adding the fillings helped a lot. I can't wait to try them with different fillings.

Funnel Cakes I

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2006
OMG! I only made half of the batch. I added about 1 teaspoon vanilla and about 1/4 cup sugar to the batter. I don't have a kitchen funnel so I used a ziploc bag with a corner cut off. These were awesome, really simple to make, quick to fry...delicious...what else? They are just great. I used two spatulas to flip them over. Whatever you use to flip them make sure you grab them in the middle because the corners will be crispier and break off easily.

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2006
Very light, fluffy and lemony. I juiced a lemon instead of using extract.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
Best recipe for pancakes I've found. I did add more milk because it was too thick for me and a little bit of maple extract.

Pollo (Chicken) Fricassee from Puerto Rico

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
Great ficase de pollo. I make it on the stovetop and sometimes add thinly sliced carrots. I add more chicken and keep on tasting it to make sure it ends up con mucho sabor.

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2006
Very good! This icing was so easy to make. I used it to top thumbprint cookies. I halved the recipe and separated it in 3 portions to give it different colors.

Chili-Lime Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2006
I loved these. Marinated for only an hour, next time will wait longer. Added onions and green peppers in the skewers and grilled on my foreman grill for only a few minutes. Very yummy!

Stuffed Peppers My Way

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2009
I sauteed some minced garlic (about 3 cloves) on the olive oil before adding the rest of the ingredients. Otherwise, I followed the instructions completely and I liked the dish very much.

Stephen's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
Didn't change a thing and came out with big, fat, chunky cookies that had an awesome flavor. I used a 1/4c measuring cup to measure the dough into equal portions. I baked them for 12 minutes and they were perfect. Thank you for sharing!!

Crepes

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2006
Very good crepes. I like them slightly sweet so I added 1 Tablespoon sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. I used butter flavored PAM cooking spray and about 1/4 cup for each crepe.

Quiche Lorraine I

Reviewed: May 11, 2006
Very good! I used 1-1/2 cups half and half instead of cream and baked for about 5 minutes longer but other than that this recipe is PERFECT! I had tried the carnation version and it tasted too milky, the evaporated milk was overpowering.

Cheese Blintzes

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2006
These are so pretty! I only used half of the cream cheese mixture for 20 ounces of bread (yep, less mixture for more bread than called for). I rolled them tight and cut them in half diagonally before dipping them in butter. If you want to avoid having a plate with cinnamon sugar paste on it, sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on them instead of rolling. I had McCormick pre-mixed cinn-sugar and using that was great. I baked them for 15 minutes on parchment paper lined cookie sheets. (Parchment paper is my best friend in the kitchen). I didn't use the sour cream , just served them as is and got great compliments.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: May 19, 2006
This recipe was included in the chocolate lovers cookbook that allrecipes sent me for free when i bought the "dinner tonight" cookbook. My husband actually baked these and although they tasted too chocolately right out of the oven ('cause the chips were melted and gooey) in my opinion these are best the next day when they are cooled down. I baked them for just 8 minutes, they looked undercooked but they'll end up nice and chewy. We used chopped pecans instead of walnuts.

Strawberry Cream Roll

Reviewed: May 15, 2006
This roll was so easy to make and it looks very pretty. I chopped up the strawberries before measuring them and stirred in 2 Tablespoons of sugar. I also added three drops of red food coloring to the filling. (See my picture) When you trim the crusty edges make sure you don't toss them they are soooo good! I like to let the roll sit outside the refrigerator for a little while before eating so that the cake is softer. It tastes just like strawberry short cake. A+
