Three Cheese Garlic Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2005
We were very disappointed in these potatoes. First off, Yukon's take a long time to cook, so I'd recommend you pre-cook the potatoes unless you have a mandoline and can slice them paper thin. (I didn't know this at the time.) I used my Cuisinart and they were sliced very thinly, but even with that, I cooked them for an extra 30 min. and still they weren't done. I had company, and needed to serve dinner, so zapped them in the microwave for awhile and STILL they were "al dente". (Which is not how you want your potatoes!) They just tasted garlicy to me, I didn't pick up on anything special or yummy. Maybe with addt'l cooking the flavors would've melded, but I'd keep looking for a different and better recipe.

Michelle's Peanut Butter Marbled Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2005
These were such a disappointment! I was expecting an incredible brownie, so served these for Superbowl and we all thought they were good, but not great! Also, they were too peanut-buttery for me, personally.

Angel Food Cake III

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2005
Totally awesome! I just made it for the 2nd time this weekend, and it turned out perfectly without any changes. As for baking time, you can never go totally by any recipe. Always deduct 10 minutes, set your timer and go from there. Every oven is different, as most are not calibrated exactly. If you follow this recipe exactly, your cake will rise above the level of the pan and have excellent flavor and texture. Note the recipe tells you to add the sugar gradually (no need to process if you do this!), and then later to FOLD in the flour, etc. This means to use a spatula and fold from top to bottom--don't use your mixer and no stirring. If you don't fold, or if you overfold, you will loose your volume for the cake! I sliced this into 3 layers and filled with lemon curd and white chocolate buttercream, then frosted w/the buttercream! Everyone totally loved it and raved about how incredible the cake was!! This is a GREAT recipe!

Oven Barbecued Beef Brisket I

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2004
This was totally delicious, and so easy! Just be careful on the cooking time, because brisket varies in thickness, and since mine was pretty thin, it was done much sooner. I cooked it for almost 3 hours in the oven as per directions (it was almost done at that time), and then sliced it, transferred it to my crockpot on low, poured the sauce and water over it, and left the house for a few hours. By the time we came back, it was almost completely shredded. I spooned it into soft buns, served with coleslaw and raw crunchy carrots and it was to die for! Gone in one dinner and lunch the next day! Fighting over the leftovers!!

Baked Potato Soup V

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2004
AWESOME! I served this for Bunko and the ladies all loved it and asked for the recipe! The first batch I made I followed recipe exactly except for leaving out the bacon cuz we have a vegetarian in our group, and made some changes for the 2nd batch which made it even better (I think!). I reduced the milk to 3 cups whole, 2 cups 1% (cuz that's what we have on hand), and 1 cup chicken broth. (Because the soup is so darned thick and extremely rich!) I also sauteed 1 finely minced carrot for a minute or two, then added 1 minced onion and 1 minced celery stalk til all was soft and tender, then put in a minced garlic clove and sauteed for about another minute. Pureed the entire thing in my Cuisinart and stirred it into the soup along with the cheese, et al. Gave it even MORE flavor--totally over the top! I then ended up stirring the two batches together and dumping the entire thing in my crock pot! I put chopped green onion, bacon, cheese and sour cream in little bowls for everyone to top as they wanted. Yum!

Pumpkin Muffins II

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2004
These are totally awesome! I used canned pumpkin, otherwise didn't change a single thing. My entire family loves them and my 5 year old requested them for his preschool birthday party treat. I then had moms asking me for the recipe because their kids liked them so much! I did drizzle them with a maple glaze, which I made from powdered sugar, syrup and a bit of milk. Excellent!

Texas Brownies I

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2004
I made these for Super Bowl and we were all a bit disappointed in them. Nothing like brownies! It made a moist cake, but the flavor was weak, almost like I had omitted something or done something wrong. (I bake a great deal, however I did double-check myself and to the best of my knowledge, followed the directions exactly.) The chocolate flavor wasn't very strong at all, and was almost over powered by the cinnamon. In my opinion it needs more cocoa powder, and possibly some other adjustments. If you are looking for a fudgy brownie or a texas-style chocolate cake, this isn't it! The frosting was very good, however I had to add more milk to make it thin enough to pour/spread over the cake and everyone agreed the frosting was the best part!! I won't make this again.
