Chocolate Anise Cookies with Dried Cherries

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
I wondered how these would turn out with only 1/2 cup flour. They tasted pretty good, however I thought it was not worth the effort to make these, I only got 20 cookies. The dough had to be chilled two times and was not that easy to work with. My son really loved them though, but he will have to make his own :-)

Lemon Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
I would definitely make this again. I just love piccata, and this sauce has just the right amount of lemon and capers. I however, did not put the lemon slices in the sauce, as I did not have enough for the juice, but it was still delicious. Next time I will make sure I have 2 lemons.

Cherry Bell Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
These cookies taste very good, and I recommend this recipe if you like a soft cookie. I made mine round and put the filling and cherry in the center and they were still very pretty.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
This soup is excellent. I did use onion instead of leek, only because I didn't have leek. Also I added about 3/4 cup chopped celeriac (celery root) just because I needed to use it up. I will definately make this soup again, without my changes. I know that it will still be great.

Rhubarb Pudding Cake

Reviewed: May 8, 2009
We really loved this recipe. Just the right amount of sweetness and tartness. I did, however use 4 cups of rhubarb. I think it needed that much. I might try it with some strawberries next time. Mmmmm.....strawberry/rhubarb. Great recipe.

Bread Machine Cardamom Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
This bread has a very good flavor. Very good texture, however I will set my machine on 1# loaf next time. It got a little dark on the 1 1/2# setting. Also, the bread was hard to get out of the pan. Maybe because of the applesauce instead of oil. I might try these as rolls next time.

Roasted Red Pepper and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
This soup is good. I used more red peppers and also added about 1/2 cup fennel bulb. It is a very light colored soup, so not as attractive as I thought it would be.

Aunt Dorothy's Marinated Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
This is a great colorful salad for potlucks, and it's nice because it can be made ahead of time and stays nice and crispy. I made one change due to personal taste, and I just wanted to see how it would be. I omitted the onion and added chopped fennel bulb. It was very good.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
This is a very nice icing. I did have to double the recipe to have enough, for a half recipe of the Best Rolled Sugar Cookies from this site. I did add more milk and a little more corn syrup to get the right consistancy. These have a very nice gloss. I would use this recipe again.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
These cookies were pretty good. The dough was fairly easy to work with, although it needs to be kept cold. Definately needs to be refrigerated overnight. We liked the taste very much. I used the Sugar Cookie Icing from this site to frost them.

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
I love these. They are sweet, salty and chewy. Can't eat just one. These are so easy to make. I put these in the fridge to cool, as they do take awhile to harden.

Neapolitan Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
I have made these cookies for probably about 20 years now. I got the exact recipe from our newspaper that many years ago. They always turn out great. The only thing I changed, was that I used double the amount of almond extract. Very good cookies and easy to make.

Sandies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
These cookies are pretty good, however I have two other recipes that I prefer that are very similar. I think the sugar should be increased to maybe 1/2 cup. I would like them just a little sweeter.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
I made this pie with Northern Spy apples, my favorite for making desserts. This was a very good pie. It was very different putting the sauce over the crust, but it worked.

Simple Swiss Chard

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
Very tasty, be sure to use a good quality balsamic. I used the stems of the swiss chard, why waste them. I would make this again.
