Coffee Flavored Liqueur II

Reviewed: May 5, 2014
I shouldn't review this until after it has aged. It was perfect first made so I know with time it will only get better. I followed the recipe except I used 4 cups of very strong coffee instead of water and instant coffee. I had some coffee from a loved one's trip to Africa that I used. It was ground a little more finely than domestic ground coffee. I could use the liqueur today but I'll give it a couple of months to let the vanilla bean infuse. Thanks for sharing a yummy recipe.

Pumpernickel Rye Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2013
Great recipe. I used 2 tsp. of yeast rather than 1 1/2 tsp. I slightly increased the caraway seeds and added 1 T. of brown sugar to make the recipe suit my taste. The bread had a great flavor and great texture. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Mary's Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
I tried this because I was out of granulated sugar but had powdered sugar. The cookies are good. They're definitely not the best sugar cookies I've ever had. But I am partial to cookies that have a small amount of dairy in them, such as cream cheese or sour cream. They were a tiny bit difficult to roll out. I had to add a little extra flour when rolling them. I would make this again in a pinch though. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2013
I thought this was ok. I used good flavoring so it had good flavor. The texture was a little lackluster though. It was probably as good as a pudding without eggs or butter can be. I used it to make trifle with fresh bananas and banana cake. While we enjoyed the dessert, I doubt I would make this again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Red and Green Christmas Jalapeno Jelly

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2013
I cut the recipe in half and used 3/4 c. of assorted diced hot peppers. I used Thai Bird's Eye peppers, one jalapeno and a habanero. The jelly came out hot and delicious. My jelly had a lot of unattractive tiny air bubbles in it though. I've had numerous jelly failures but never that one so I don't know what I did wrong. One pectin for half a batch was more than enough. It set up well and very quickly. It might have set up so quickly because the peppers I used were very dry. I think that had something to do with getting tiny bubbles? (The jelly started setting up before I got it in the jar.) It's not the recipe's fault so I still have to give it 5 stars for taste. But I probably won't make it again until I figure out why the jelly is so bubbly.

Most Amazing Challah

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2013
This is the best challah I have ever made. It is light, fluffy and delicious. I made half a recipe. The first loaf I baked after 2 rises. The dough for the other loaf is in the fridge. I expect it to taste even better after sitting in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. I didn't use vanilla extract in the egg wash because I am out of it. I will use it next time though. I also used regular yeast. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe!

Habanero Pepper Jelly

This is a great tasting jelly! For a half recipe I used 8 habaneros. It's perfect, not too hot and not too mild. Yum yum yum! Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe!

Burnt Sugar Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2013
This was a very good cake. It was light, soft and fluffy. I made it with coffee as suggested by another reviewer. It did give the cake a fantastic flavor. The coffee made the cake a little too dark though. Next time I will try it as written. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe!

Homemade Sweet Italian Sausage (Mild or Hot)

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2013
This was my first time making sausage. It was really delicious. The recipe has a tiny bit too much salt and pepper for my taste. That's easy to adjust. Everything else was perfect for me. This will definitely be my "base" recipe in the future. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe!

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: May 13, 2013
I finally tried this cake because I had exactly 8 leftover egg yolks in the freezer. I made it with half butter and half 80% vegetable oil margarine. It was very good. I planned to frost it with caramel frosting. After tasting a little piece I trimmed off for my hungry impatient toddler, I decided to leave it unfrosted. I don't recall ever saying nah I won't frost this one. This is a very rich, very moist cake. It's good as is. (If folks are having trouble with baking scratch cakes with recipes that seem to work for others...1.)Make sure all ingredients are room temp, including the milk. This is very important. 2.)Cream butter and sugar VERY well. I only have a hand mixer, so I know it works just fine for this. Be patient and cream well. 3.)Don't over mix after the flour and milk are added. Mix more than you would for muffins. Blend well but don't go crazy. 4.)Test your oven temperature on both sides. 5.)DON'T GIVE UP! After a half dozen scratch cakes, they'll start tasting really good. After making a dozen+ of them, they'll start tasting great.) Thanks for a great recipe!

Heavenly White Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2013
This cake is fantastic. The flavor and texture are perfect. This cake will seem dry if it is cold. Bring it to room temperature for at minimum of 30-35 minutes before serving and it is perfect. Also, make sure the butter, eggs and milk are all room temperature before using. This recipe is a keeper!

Braided Easter Egg Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
Good recipe. I made this last year for Good Friday. I added slivered almonds and golden raisins. When it was still warm I put some vanilla frosting and sprinkles on top. I am going to make this again on Good Friday this year. Thanks for sharing.

Snickerdoodles II

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
These taste exactly the way snickerdoodles should. I found the dough didn't need the entire amount of flour. Thanks for sharing a yummy recipe.

Blackened Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
This recipe had way too much salt for me. Half a teaspoon per piece of fish is just way too much for my household. It says four salmon fillets but doesn't say what size. I used quarter pound fillets. Maybe that was the problem. The salt really obscured the flavor of the fish. I'd try this again but with much less salt, like 1 tsp. As they say, you can always add salt but once you've ruined your dish you can't take it away.

Sweet and Sour Sauce I

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
We eat sweet and sour sauce over tofu with vegetables a lot. I like to try new sweet and sour sauces. We had this one tonight. This is a good one. It's a little plain. Simplicity is a good thing in this case though. I made a double batch and refrigerated more than half. We look forward to having it again soon. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Danish Christmas Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
I've never had hot cabbage with sugar and vinegar. This was also the first time I've ever eaten red cabbage cooked. It was delicious! This dish is good hot or cold! It's simple but is nicely crisp and flavorful. We served it with homemade macaroni and cheese. It was a great dinner. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
After trying this recipe I stopped buying pancake mix. These taste better than pancakes made from mix, are just as easy to make and are more economical. Thanks for sharing it.
