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!

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
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!

Swedish Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
A bit too sweet, but a nice pie overall. I will try again with experimenting on sugar amount.

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!
