The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2014
Followed the recipe exactly. Even chilled it overnight as the dough came out gooey more like stiff cake batter. End result: It is impossible to roll. Sticks like glue everywhere. I tried rolling out with flour - 1st batch tasted really floury. Tried to baked next batch as drop cookies - it did not spread out. This recipe has way too much flour.

Luscious Lemon Snaps

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
they tasted like flat floury discs! I love lemon, but somehow the ingredients in this recipe made the lemon zest/lemon juice taste metallic without any citrus zing to it...and I used a generous amount of lemon zest too. I think this recipe might do better with butter rather than oil - very disappointing for the given star rating..sorry.. I would not recommend it!

German Leek and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2013
Meant to give 4.5stars. it is a good base - like the ham bone addition. Just got back from our local farmer's market today with bunch of fresh leeks, just-out-of-the-earth potatoes and the season's dried black olives with a nutty flavor- less salt. Decided to make this soup base with them: melted butter/olive oil in pot, sea salt, cracked black pepper & 3 bay leaves, stir fry in the sliced onions, some brown sugar on top, then sliced leeks. Toss together. Add the ham bone & I always brown the ham bone with a splash of good quality Chinese rice wine - it lifts the taste of the ham. top the pot with spring water & put in 15-20 of the dried black olives - it helps to add a subtle salty flavor to the soup naturally. chop up the potatoes into bite size pieces & toss in together with 3-4 cloves of chopped up garlic. bring to the boil then simmer the soup lowest heat for 2-3 hours. this fuses the flavors together and bring out the natural "sweetness" of the veg & meat in the soup. Leave out any cream/milk. do not puree. the potatoes & leeks/onions softened into the soup, the bits of meat came off the ham bone and I served it hot as broth w/softened chunks of potato & leeks with bits of ham meat in it - enjoy!!

Cute Cranberry Tangerine Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2013
What a happy accident - bought ruby grapefruit instead but decided to use it anyway. boiled the juice down w/honey to taste which will tone down the bitter bite. Use only the berries in the batter & keep the reduce juice as a syrup when serving instead of sugaring the muffin top. added some crushed pecan nuts - optional. Great basic recipe. simple & delicious. I especially liked boiling down the dried berries with the juice. Nice touch - a big thanks of appreciation for sharing!

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2013
I loved the description and simplicity of this recipe so I added it to my recipe box and have tried it out twice thus far. I would like to say that it is a terrific recipe for using up all those jars of half full jam sitting on the counter top. I personally had about 5 different varieties to use up - so I did. combining the leftover jars of raspberry jam, blackberry jam, sour cherry jam as well as dried blueberries. The result was a delicious chewy mix of berries. The one point I want to make is that I feel the proportion of butter is too little, as is the jam. First time I used 1/2 cup of butter but the dough was too dry and crumbly. I also increased the jam to full cup but still not enough. Second time I increased the butter to 3/4 cup and doubled the portion of jam. still both ingredients are still not enough for the portion of flour & oatmeal. The next time I intend to increase the butter to full cup and use as much jam is needed to cover the entire top before sprinkling the top with dough. Also I used the tip from another review & used baking paper to line the pan - the bars came away cleanly every time! Highly recommended recipe. simple and delicious! Huge thank you MARBALET for sharing this recipe!

Mom's Favorite Baked Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
This is a really well put together recipe (and there were too many to choose from!)) and the ingredients sounded yummy. I tried it out and it turned out delicious! But I did make a few changes: added in 3-4 cloves of crushed garlic to the onion when I sautéed it; used half portions of sharp cheddar & gouda cheese. Grated box of kraft cheese rather than cut the strips AND mixed parmesan cheese with the panko topping. It was all good - 4 types of cheese!
