Pierogi I

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2007
These were great. This was the best pasta recipe I've ever used for a "dumpling". My husband said the pasta was "killer." I just used leftover garlic mashed potatoes and I cut the serving size down to 3, but that easily made enough for 2 of us to have 6 a piece, and I am freezing 18 pierogis. I will keep this dough recipe for raviolis as well! The possibilities are endless.

Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2006
"Impressive" my very picky husband concluded. He thought it was really good; I thought it was really good. The only thing this recipe was missing was lemon juice. After tasting it I knew it needed a little zip and some of the other recipes had called for it. Just what it needed. I just used the bottled stuff I had in the fridge and that worked wonders! Also, I didn't actually measure out the spices, so I can't verify that the portions given in this are correct. I'm pretty positive I didn't use the entire amount of cumin called for. I also used kosher salt. If you like garlic, I added an extra clove and I loved it. If your mix is gritty at all, don't fret. Just add a little more oil or lemon juice and blend more in the food processor. I think this would have not worked well in the blender. I served it with homemade naan bread and cucumbers. DELICIOUS!! (The first time I made I just ate it with some corn chips and it was great with that too.)

Handsome Party Punch

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2006
This was excellent. I used it for a wedding recpetion I was catering and everyone loved it. The one piece of advice I'd give is that it gets very, very frothy when you add everything together so make sure your punch bowl is big enough for a volume increase once it's all combined. The first batch I made was too close to the top and it started over flowing when I put in the sherbet and it started fizzing and bubbling everywhere. But after I figured that out, I was fine and it was a hit.

Norwegian Waffles

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2006
I usually don't use recipes that aren't rated, but I decided to take a chance and I'm glad I did. These were great! I did use the shortening, though I was tempted to use oil. I don't know if it makes a difference or not, but they were good. I was a little afraid the batter was too thin, but the final product proved me wrong. It had the best texture of any waffles I've made and it had a good flavor. It was not super light and airy if that's what you want, nor was it super dense. It had a nice blend of chewiness and substance. My husband (who's very much a food critic) liked these very much also. I've tried over 10+ waffle recipes, and so far this is the winner.

David's Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2006
I used the egg whites as well as the yolks. I'm glad I did because it would have been a little too dry without them. I separated them and made the batter with the yolks like directed then whipped the whites until they were thick and fluffy and folded them in just before pouring them into the pan to bake. I used a 9X13 pan rather than 2 small rounds. It worked nicely.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2005
The batter did seem a little thick before I added the blueberries. The blueberries had enough of it's own liquid that it was just fine. I actually only had 3/4 C blueberries, but I thought it was a good amount. I also had topping stuff left over, so if you don't have enough butter or what not, just cut it down a bit and you should still be fine. It made 8 large muffins, and it cooked perfectly for me at 20 min. The time may vary depending on your oven. My oven is actually 100* hotter than what it says, so I had to only heat my oven to 300*. These are just like store muffins, thick and delicious.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2005
I multiplied this by six and served A LOT of hungry people. Everyone loved it. It turns out best if using a real pizza pan with ventalation holes instead of a cookie sheet. I've done both and hands down the pizza pan pizza wins.

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2005
I'm a cook at a treatment center for teenage girls. The majority of the girls liked this and all of the staff loved it. I did double the sauce recipe and it worked out pretty well. I ended up with a bit of left over sauce, but I think it wouldn't have been enough if I had done the amount given in the recipe. My husband's fairly picky about sauces and he loved this dish. It wasn't hard to multiply (I made it for 24 people.) It was a great break from alfredo and marinera sauces.

Basic Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2005
I'd have given this a 4.5 star if I could have. It tastes delicious, but it was INCREDIBLY thick. It would have worked much better if I had a kitchenaid instead of a hand mixer. I had to add a bit of milk to make it just a touch thinner. Even with the milk it was really thick and very good.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2004
I'm a chef for a living, and this is the best recipe for pancakes I've ever used. It doesn't need any tweaking. Excellent!
