Raspberry-Lemon Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
Nice idea but mediocre as written. Too little lemon tang. To up the tartness I doubled the zest, added 4 tablespoons of lemon powder and 3/4 tsp of lemon oil. Texture was ok, too much like a pudding despite the addition of the cream cheese. I would have like more of a whipped texture (next time I will make this as a Dream Whip pie). Enjoyed the raspberry preserves (I would have preferred more, my daughter preferred less). It did not firm up enough for me, seemed to be better frozen.

Creme Anglaise II

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
Nice directions and straightforward to prepare. Thickened nicely. Thought it tasted too "eggy" although I had no curdling or evidence of solids in my sauce. Compared ingredients to other versions (including Julia Child) and the cream in the other versions was twice the amount in this one. Think I will double the cream next time to cut back on the egg flavor.

English Muffin Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
I made this last night for breakfast today. Cut the recipe in half and since I planned on making it in my bread machine I took the advice of other reviewers and doubled the water and baking soda. Added 2 tbsp soft butter. Also heated the milk in the microwave to 150F but added cold water to bring temp down. Looked perfect coming out of the machine and the texture and taste were perfect! Will be making often.
