French Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2011
This is better than bread at a bakery! I've made it twice so far with a few changes. First, I bloom the yeast in warm water about 10 minutes before adding to the flour and salt. I add about five teaspoons of sugar to the yeast mixture to "fuel" the yeast. I added a little less than five cups of flour so that the dough will be on the "sticky" side but not sticking to the bottom to my Kitchen Aide. I let rise in a warm oven (turn oven on for a few minutes and then off and open door of the oven to cool off before putting bread in) and covering bread with a tea towel wet with warm water and wrung out. Roll out extra thin rectangle before rolling into loafs. Sprinkle a little kosher salt on the egg-white wash. Before heating your oven I added two Pyrex 13x9 baking dishes with water half way up the side on the bottom rack of the oven for steam. Be sure to be careful when opening up the oven because of the steam- it will give a rude awakening when opened if not careful (I open oven from the side). I baked about 35 min. total and put butter on the cooling loafs. Amazing!

Cinnamon Nut Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
I made a few changes and this is fantastic. First I added two golden delicious apples peel and chopped. I also used brown sugar for the sugar used in the cake and in the topping. I also added cinnamon to the cake batter.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
Finally a recipe that produces a moist puffy Snickerdoodle cookie! I followed the recipe except I added a bit more flour about a fourth cup more to stiffen. I also cooked on parchment paper. Yummy cinnamon- buttery goodness!

Homemade Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
This recipe was so easy and tasted soooo much better than what I have bought in the store! I followed the recipe for the most part but I did make some changes based on what I know about bread making. First, I let the yeast bloom in the water and oil that I heated up for 30 seconds in the microwave. I did add additional sugar to the yeast mixture to 'feed' the yeast. I waited for about 10 minutes or so before adding the yeast to the flour, sugar, and salt. After I added the yeast I added the egg. I put the mixture in my Kitchen Aid with the paddle attachment. I added the additional flour until the dough did not stick to the sides. I used the dough hook for about five minutes. I then transfered the dough to a floured silpat and tossed it a bit on the floured pat. Then covered with a bowl for 5 minutes. I rolled out the bread into a rectangle and put it on a cookie sheet. Let it rise using clingwrap sprayed with oil and a clean towel. After rising, I poked holes with a wooden spoon and then topped it with mixture (started before making bread to let flavors blend) of olive oil, garlic, pepper, kosher salt, rosemary, basil, and oregano (fresh) and onion powder and onion salt. Also, Parmesan and Romano cheese and a little red pepper flakes. Spread into bread and let it cook for 15 minutes. Let it cool and enjoy! My husband and I have eaten half of the bread already!

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
I don't have a bread maker, so I followed the advise of other bakers. I mixed the water and milk, nuked in in the microwave for 1 minute and added 2 teaspoons yeast and a bit of sugar. I let it activate about 20 minutes and poured it into the bowl of my KitchenAid, then stirred in the rest of the sugar until it dissolved, then mixed in the salt, butter and egg, then I started mixing the flour a half cup at a time. I let it rise for about 45 minutes in the bowl, then punched it down, divided it into rolls and let it rise for another hour, then baked for 10 minutes at 350 degrees. Yum!

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
I have been making bread for a long time and this is one of the best. I did not shape into rolls but baked in a long loaf pan periodically brushing butter on top. My husband and I have almost eaten the whole loaf!

General Tao Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
Very close to what we order at our Chinese restaurant but better. I followed the recipe for the most part except I made two changes as suggested by other reviewers. I added two tablespoons of ketchup and added about two tablespoons of pepper sauce because the General Tao chicken we get has a kick. My husband loved it. The only thing I am going to do next time is double the sauce. I also mixed in some jasmine rice into the chicken while it was cooling in the pan. It makes twice as much as you get for two orders of take out for half the price and no long waits for lukewarm food.

Tuna Mushroom Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
This is great because you can use ingredients on hand to make this. My husband loves it and he is picky pick picky! I did change this a bit however. First I used shells instead of bow ties. I used 1 can of marinated mushrooms (adds just enough zing) I was out of milk so used 1/2 & 1/2. I also added a can of cream corn (adds more creaminess). While boiling shells added everything but bread crumbs and butter. Add thyme to soup. Bread crumbs were already seasoned so I didn't add any seasonings. Last I added cheese on top of the bread crumbs and butter. With respect to the milk and butter the ingredients can be kept on hand for a meal in a hurry.

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
This recipe is yummy! I didn't have any brown sugar so I used regular sugar and added molasses to it. I also added pecans. Don't be surprised if you have to cook a little longer than the recipe suggests. Truly tastes like it came from a bakery! My husband has almost eaten half of them and I doubled the recipe!!

Guacamole

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
This is better than any guacamole I have ever had in a restaurant. I used purple onions and sea salt. It was a hit with everyone at a party I had.

Incredible Punch

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2006
This is a wonderful recipe that I made for a bridal shower a few years ago and it is still talked about and requested from friends. It is fast and easy, always a hit, and always requested when I make it. You can put the pina colada and cran-rasberry mixture in a shapped mold with whole raspberries freeze as directed and then float it in your punch bowl with additional berries. You can also add mint leaves for garnish if desired. It is both beautiful and great tasting.
