Tiny Chicken Turnovers

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2007
I followed the directions, but the dough just didn't work for me. They turned out golden, crisp...and super crumbly and a bit too salty. You couldn't even pick them up without crumbling- so much for the appetizer potential. The chicken filling is quite good though- I would recommend that part. I won't make again...not worth the work for the result. Thanks for sharing though- they seemed more appealing to others.

Italian Bread Bowls

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2007
Ok. Good for entertaining, but overall not too impressive in taste and still a lot of work. I got 6, not 8, but they may have been big.

Garlic Yeast Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2007
Quite good and I love they are with ingredients you have on hand. I used regular flour. Be aware that you get a very small loaf from this- I set mine to 1 lb after considering the small amount of flour the recipe calls for. Also, even for you garlic lovers out there, don't add another clove; it is excessive, & may add a pungeant taste. Overall, bread was light, golden, with an underlying tone of garlic bread. *1/25/08* I made this again without realizing I had already made it once- still amazing. I might double the recipe next time.

Oven-Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
Yum. Simple and tasty. Very easy- It's shake and bake potatoes! However, I used the specified coating for 3 very large Russet potatoes and cut down on the oil. I prebaked the potatoes by microwaving them for 15 minutes. I then coated them and baked for 5-10 minutes. I'll make this recipe often in the future.

Giant Ding Dong Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
Quite yummy, and not difficult to make in the least. A little more time consuming than what is typically required. I didn't have my usual kitchen equipment on hand, so I baked it in a 9x13 pan and then cut it in half, and scooped out the middle. Be sure to leave a border/perimeter of cake around the edges. I also used almond extract, which I would decrease in amount if I make this again. Overall, very tasty- the cream infuses tastiness in the rest of the cake.

Chocolate-Covered Marshmallow Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
Delicious. I used marshmallow creme instead of marshmallow halves. A substitute for cake flour is 1 cup of normal flour minus 2 tablespoons. You definately need the frosting, but can half the frosting recipe and still have enough for a full batch.

Whole Wheat Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
These were light and fluffy, but a bit on the salty side. I would cut back on the salt, maybe to 1/2-3/4 teaspoon. I used 50/50 whole wheat/white flour (already premixed flour) and regular milk. VERY easy though. Also might add 1/2 cup oats next time.

Home-Fried Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2007
Really delicious. I would cut back on the oil slightly. But otherwise, very flavorful, even when reheated.

Chinese Chicken Rice Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2007
Pretty good- go easy on the salt with "salt & pepper to taste". The soy sauce adds more than you would expect. Very very good side dish for an asian-inspired meal. I marinated overnight and left out the celery and water chestnuts. The taste is there immediately though- still good without marinating.

Danish Pastry Apple Bars II

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2006
They taste delicious, but a few things to remember: 1. On the bottom layer, make sure you leave a little upward edge with the dough, as you have to connect it with the top layer later. 2. WAY too much liquid for the crust, which completely threw off my recipe. I didn't realize it until too late (alas- should have read the previous reviewer). And I only used about 1/2 of the egg water mixture. I would also 1.5 times the crust ingredients, as I ran out of crust on top. So my presentation was awful due to the crust situation, but if you take 1 & 2 into consideration early on, I bet it would be awesome. It's basically apple pie bars. Sadly, I couldn't taste or sense the corn flakes.

Red Pepper Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2006
It was ok. I halved the recipe, and used a 1:4 butter/milk substution for the heavy cream, and put in less than called for. It was still very creamy. It is my first time trying red pepper soup, so perhaps it's just my taste buds. Presentation is beautiful, though. Sprinkle with fresh parsley.

Grilled Asian Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2006
I baked it instead of grilling, so my rating is distorted. Even though I marinaded it for 6 hours, the taste didn't sink in. It was blah and tasteless. Next time I'll broil it, except I won't make it again.

Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2006
Very good. I'm happy to find such a tasty teriyaki recipe. I marinated it about 5 hours, perhaps, and then baked it for about 45 minutes, and broiled it for an additional 15 for some crunch. (I used bone-in chicken thighs). I boild the marinade and poured it over the top for a scrumptious finish.

Portuguese Sweet Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2006
Yum. This was my first test with a bread machine- before I made my bread by hand. It's so easy! I don't have a sweetbread setting, so I used White bread, light crust. The bread is light, fluffy, and with a tinge of sweet essence. Recommended.

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2006
Turned out very delicious. My peaches weren't very ripe, but I was delighted by how well it turned out- I didn't change a thing; by substituting margarine for butter, it can be a kosher dish. 2nd time: Way to watery. Not sure what happened...

Barbecue Beef Cups

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2006
These are easy to make, savory snacks that disappeared quickly at the party where I served them. However, they tasted a bit dry- add more sauce, if possible. Additional spices could also help.

Cheesecake Topped Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2006
Ok. I was expecting better considering the prior ratings. I swirled the brownie batter with the cheesecake batter for appearance. The pair just don't mesh well together taste-wise.

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies IV

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2006
Everyone loved them. I wasn't a fan. But out of all the cookies I've baked this summer, these were the favorite.
