Buttermilk Chess Pie

Reviewed: May 25, 2010
Chess pie is wonderful stuff. Anyone know if there's a difference if using cultured buttermilk (cultured skim milk) vs. old-fashioned buttermilk (cultured milk left after butter-making)?

Lemon Square Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2007
These were wonderful! I did tweak the recipe slightly. We like a thick crust and I wanted to run it up the side of the pan a bit, so I increased the crust by half again and added a quarter teaspoon or so of kosher salt and a few drops of good vanilla extract. The vanilla really makes a nice "backdrop" for the lemon custard and the salt sharpens the sweetness of the shortbread and the vanilla. I used fresh lemons and added the zest to the custard, also increased the juice to around 3/4 C or a bit more. I'll definitely be making these again. Yum yum!

New Duchess Spice Cake with Maple Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: May 14, 2007
This was good, but I did have to modify it. Like others, my cake was done in 25 minutes, and I was very thankful for the reviews or I might have walked away from the oven and ended up with a burnt cake! I split the batter into two nine inch rounds, so that may have had something to do with it. Otherwise the recipe was great, tasted just like the spice cake I remember. The spice ratio was PERFECT but overall not quite strong enough for me, so I would probably increase the spices by half next time, just to my own preference. I didn't have any maple extract so I tried substituting some of the sugar in the frosting for real maple syrup. The texture was fine but the maple flavor was hardly noticeable--just a warning for anyone else who might try the same thing ;0). Otherwise it was great. Thanks for the recipe!

Thai Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2004
Great pizza--I use Jay's Crust from this site, reduce the peanut butter just a bit, and saute the chicken in soy sauce, red pepper, garlic, pineapple juice, and a bit of kosher salt. I also add red bell pepper and pineapple chunks. This recipe feeds us for a couple of days, and it's every bit as good cold the next morning. Yum!

Newport Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2004
One of my all-time favorite soups. Serve it with some crusty San Francisco sourdough straight out of the oven, and life does not get much better. Thanks for the great recipe!

Vintage Lemonade

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2004
This lemonade was fantastic! I used a very sharp paring knife to trim the zest off the lemons, rather than using the whole peel, to avoid the bitterness some reviewers have mentioned. The lemon oil gives a very, very nice dimension to the flavor beyond your standard lemon-juice-water-sugar mix. I'll make a double batch next time to be sure it lasts more than a day.
