Cinnamon Griddle Cakes

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2002
Wonderful! I always make these when I have guests for breakfast, and they're gone as fast as I can get them off the griddle.

Doubly Delicious Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2007
This is a great recipe! I ate half the dough before it even made it to the oven! If you're not getting intense peanut butter flavor, the problem is probably your peanut butter, not the recipe. Brands like Jif and Skippy are *terrible* for cookies. You want natural, no additive peanut butter. Freshly made if you can get it.

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2007
This cake is wonderful! Dark, rich, fudgy and decadent, just as it should be. In other words, if you make a *flourless* chocolate cake and expect it to have the texture of a layer cake, that's not a failing of the recipe. That's just you not being bright enough to be trusted with hot things in the kitchen.

Mango Cheese Tart with Blueberries

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2006
It seemed obvious to me that the 1/2 tablespoon of butter is a typo. 1/2 cup of butter makes a beautiful crust. I made this for a pot luck, and it was a hit! I almost didn't want to tell people how easy it was. More fun to let them think I spent hours and hours making it.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2005
I just made these for the umpteenth time, and they turned out perfect, as always. In fact, this time I added a dash of cardamom extract, and they are SO GOOD I can't even describe it! Seriously, if you can't get this recipe to turn out right, you should just give up on baking altogether. The first time I made these, I followed the recipe to the letter and they were great. Then I figured out to soften, not melt, the butter and chill the dough before baking, and that makes them perfection. You really can't go wrong with this recipe if you have even the most basic baking ability.

Garden Herb Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2002
I make this with fresh herbs and it's always a hit. People request it every time there's a pot luck.

English Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2002
I love these! The yeast will proof faster if you add the sugar to the water/yeast mixture, but I've made it both ways and it works just fine.

Brownie Biscotti

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2013
Perfect chocolate biscotti! Followed the directions exactly (except I left out the nuts), and they came out wonderfully. Crunchy, flavorful, and just the right accompaniment to my morning coffee. People have different ovens and pans, and I'm willing to bet those who had problems with burning weren't using parchment. Greasing might be okay if you have the right pans for it (dark non-stick pans will burn just about anything), but parchment really is your friend here. I started out with 10 mins on each side for the second bake, and they were still a little soft, so I gave them another 10 mins standing upright. Perfect! Also, definitely DON'T use a serrated knife. You need a long, very sharp slicer, and use a gentle sawing motion. If you're using force with the knife, it needs sharpening. If you're trying to cut these with a dull knife, you might as well use a hammer instead, you'll get the same result.

Chocolate Martini II

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2001
It looks like you're drinking a martini (if you don't use the dark creme de cacao), but it tastes so much better!

Seven Minute Frosting I

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2013
My first try wouldn't thicken, but the 2nd came out perfectly. Lesson learned: use fresh egg whites. Liquid egg whites from a carton will not work, or at least will take a whole lot longer than 7 minutes. I added some coconut extract along with the vanilla, and my coconut cake was a hit. This is definitely going into my cake arsenal.

Cannoli Shells

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
Fantastic! These are *real* cannoli shells! If you're a beginner cook and not really confident in your skills, then use one of the other recipes that are full of shortening and eggs. If you know what you're doing in the kitchen and want to make real, authentic cannoli, this recipe is the way to go.

Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2002
These are great muffins! I just throw in whatever I've got that needs to get used up, and everyone loves them every time. You can add a lot of nutritional value by adding things like wheat germ and bran.

Turkish Delight

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2007
This is really good and easy! One note: after adding the cornstarch, it never did get "very thick". It got thicker than it previously had been, but not anything close to what I'd call very thick. I thought I'd done something wrong and ruined it, but it set up just fine and everyone loved it.

Roasted Duck

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
A decent, basic duck recipe that doesn't overpower the flavor of the duck with too many spices. The butter, however, is *extreme* overkill. Duck is already a very fatty meat. The last thing it needs is to have a half cup of butter dumped over it. Stuff the cavity with some onion, lemon wedges, and garlic cloves, skip the butter entirely, and it's perfect.

Baked Fish with Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2002
Not bad, but a little bland. The parmesan just doesn't seem to go with the rest of the dish. It might be better if the cheese were replaced with some herbs and spices.

Chunky Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2002
Tasty, but the moisture that comes out of the mushrooms makes it thin and watery. Pre-cooking the mushrooms would probably help.

Strawberry Gelato

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
The lack of cream in this recipe makes it lower fat but also incredibly fiddly. Gelato should have *some* cream in it, and this doesn't. Because of the lack of cream, it's absolutely essential to use whole milk. Even with whole milk, heating the custard even a little bit too quickly will result in curdling, which is what I assume happened to the previous reviewer. All stoves are not the same, and slavishly following the recipe to the letter when you know medium is too hot for custard on your stove is a near guarantee that you'll have a failure. If you can get the heat just right to get this very low fat custard to thicken without curdling, then it's pretty tasty. It took me three tries and a dozen eggs to manage it, though. If you're not an extremely experienced gelato maker, I'd recommend passing this recipe over in favor of one that contains at least a 3:1 ratio of milk to cream.

Vanilla Ice Cream IX

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2008
Flavor was good, but the texture was not. Like other uncooked ice creams, this turned out grainy and melted incredibly quickly.

Easy Paella

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
This is a reasonably tasty seafood and rice dish, but it is not paella. Real paella is a dish with a lot of regional variations, but the technique is always the same, and that technique is what makes it paella. This isn't even close.

Satay Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2004
Pretty disappointing. Very bland, really just tasted like peanut butter with some spices in it. I love peanut/satay sauce, but I'll keep looking for a recipe to use at home.
