Zucchini Souffle

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
Pretty good way to use up some extra zucchini! The recipe seems easy to accept modifications as well (for example I didn't have enough zucchini and used some orange bell pepper that I needed to get rid of... worked just fine!). Recommended!

First time making neck-bones and I found this recipe to be simple and delicious. Just basic ingredients that add up to a tasty, fall-of-the-bone meal :) Thank you for the recipe!

Old-Fashioned Vanilla Pudding

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
Taste was pretty good, but texture not much so. I think that the directions were not exactly the right way to make pudding... it turned out quite lumpy... The Creamy Vanilla Pudding Recipe in this site had better directions, the pudding turned out completely smooth. So try it out or look for alternatives if you had lump-ness problems.

Beetnik Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
I used uncooked beets, grated in a food processor. I'm not sure if this recipe calls for cooked or uncooked beets, but uncooked worked for us. The texture of the cake was very nice, and there were red-spots all over. You can taste the beets this way, but fortunately my husband likes beets, and I (who usually don't care for them) got used to the taste after a while. I would be willing to make this again when I have an excess of beets, adding or subtracting ingredients (like raisins, choc-chips, maybe other fruits). I might try to cook the beets first, although I liked the idea of skipping the long boiling process. Thanks for the recipe!

Vinegar Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
Let cool completely before removing from pan. Use parchment paper for easier removal. I omitted the nuts because I didn't have any. They turned out delicious and my family/friends enjoyed them immensely! I wonder if baking powder would substitute the baking soda-vinegar ingredients, since these came out flat anyways. The dough is very dry, so don't get discouraged, they will flat out and turn out beautifully! thanks for the recipe!

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
I halved the recipe and it worked fine. Could take a bit more salt. Keep covered when you take out of the pan to keep them soft.

Pudding Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
If it takes long for it to thicken increase heat to medium, it thickens immediately after it starts boiling. I added the vanilla and butter from the beginning (misread the directions), and it still turned out delicious. It really has the consistency of a pudding, so you could use it for filling a cake too, not only for icing. Unlike other commenters, my husband found this to be a bit on the sweet side, so I would adjust sugar to your liking. Thanks for the recipe!

Crazy Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
This cake came out super moist and delicious! My husband loved it and we'll be making in the future again for sure! Super easy recipe and doesn't miss the milk and eggs at all. Thank you!

Fruitcake Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2010
Delicious! Very good recipe, and quite versatile! I have to start with a "sorry" to the submitter of the recipe for substituting half butter for margarine; thankfully it worked very well for me. They turned up crispy on the edges and nice and chewy in the center (see photo). I used a combination of nuts, dried and candied fruit to a total of 3 cups (dried figs, almonds, walnuts, candied citrus peel, raisins), and added a pinch of ground clove. The dough was chunky and non-smooth but the cookies turned out beautiful! Thanks for a great recipe!

Did this for Thanksgiving this year (without the stuffing) and it turned out wonderfully! I will be doing it with the stuffing next time! Thanks for the recipe!

Ukrainian Dill and Garlic Pickles

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
These are very aromatic and delicious! Thanks for the recipe! My problem was that they come out too salty. I'm wondering if it's because I scaled down the recipe and the ingredients are not supposed to be scaled down. I will try with 5 pounds of cucumbers next time. Make sure you are not using a plastic container for these, but a glass or ceramic one as the recipe specifies; it does make a difference. If yours come out too salty like mine did, here is how I saved them: Pour the liquid out, and wash the cucumbers with running water (if too salty, soak them in water for some time). Return them in the container with the spices. Boil 1 part vinegar, with 1.5 part water, and 1/4 part sugar. Pour the boiling liquid on top of the cucumbers, seal and store in refrigerator. Good luck!

Dressed-Up Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
This was delicious! I halved the recipe (but used a bit extra lettuce). The tomatoes, onion and the eggs did make a lot of difference in taste. The cheese not so much, so if you want to cut on fat you can omit the cheese. Nice way to get your omega-3 for dinner or lunch! Thanks for the recipe!

Wheat Crackers

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2010
You have to roll these out really really thin in order to work, like paper thin, kind of. But the dough was really hard to roll out. Taste is OK.

Granola Bars III

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
I thought they were going to be too sweet with all the sugar and honey, and raisins (and I added choc chips) but they were actually too bland. The texture was not that of a granola bar, for sure. We did not enjoy these.

Cinnamon Rolls II

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
Best dough for cinnamon rolls ever! Mine needed about 1 more cup of flour. The secrets are: 1) bake just until golden brown on top and still whitish on bottom, and 2) use the right pan. I used a pyrex and a glass pie dish with a thick bottom. The ones in the pie dish came out so much softer and fluffier! Delicious! Otherwise I followed the recipe, except I did not make the frosting. Thank you for this recipe!

Raisin Spice Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
This was absolutely delicious! The boiling the raisins step did make a big difference in taste for the better. I substituted butter for shortening as I didn't have any on hand. The texture of the crust was very presentable! Thank you for this recipe!
