Dutch Almond Boterkoek

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
Call me silly, but I like them better made in a pie plate. very simple, but needs a little adjustment. Mix 2/3 cup room-temperature (unsalted) butter, 1/2 cup white sugar, and 1/2 cup packed brown (light or dark). I like the almond flavor, so add 1 1/2 tsp extract. Add the whole beaten egg, except for 1 tsp. Sift 1 1/2 cups of flower and 1/2 tsp of baking powder into butter/sugar/egg mixture. Put dough in greased 9" pie plate. Mix reserved egg w/ 1 tsp water and brush over dough. I like to add some turbinado sugar on top for crunch rather than the slivered almonds, but that's a matter of taste. Bake for 25-30 mins. at 350F until firm to the touch. Comes out great!

Was used to mixing and sautéing all the vegetables, but now much prefer this gorgeous recipe. Doubled it and followed the recipe. Used fresh garden tomatoes. While others used crushed or diced, having the sliced red tomatoes on layered on top finishes this dish perfectly. It a 9 x 13 it took me 45 minutes at 375. Perfect for when you have guests. My kids asked me if I made this or if I had help from our alley rats...

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
Many of my cakes are sold to individuals with high-end taste and pocket books, and this one received, if possible, higher raves than any I've made thus far. Worth a review for sure. Used Drambuie instead of water, but I presume Kahlua or other liquor would work just as well. Only use Ghirardelli. No question I prefer an 8" spring form pan; produces a slightly higher (thinker) result. Made a Raspberry Coulis from Emeril's website, but used frozen raspberries instead of fresh. Worked perfectly. Drizzled that onto a plate and placed 1/16 of cake onto it. Dotted with slightly sweetened whipped cream, 1/2 of mint chocolate-filled mint flavoured Pirouette (Pepperidge Farm) cookie on top, a couple of fresh raspberries and a fresh mint leaf. And voila, an unbelievable experience. My client served this to the President of Ukraine's wife and entourage, and they were blown away. Oh, and just follow the rest of the recipe and you can't go wrong. Easy. Definitely worth a try, even if you just eat it "nuked" with some vanilla ice cream as a previous reviewer suggested...delicious.

Carrot Apple Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
Truly excellent. Didn't have time to refrigerate since we needed a "quick fix", but still very good and tasty. Probably better cold. Left out the mayo since we plainly don't like it. Didn't miss it. Didn't have lemon yoghurt just plain, added a little extra lemon juice.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
Definitely worth the high rating. "Best Pot Pie I've ever eaten" was the comment of my, mind you, mother-in-law. I mixed some fresh vegetables from my wife's from-scratch chicken soup with some frozen ones. Excellent. Also doubled the recipe. Make sure you bake this through for at least 45 minutes, maybe longer depending on your oven. I used the ready-made Pillsbury crust (2 for the bottom and 2 for the top), overlapping them somewhat on a 9 x 13 inch dish, and the bottom crust was not completely "done." I suggest pre-baking the bottom crust(s) -don't forget brushing with some egg whites- for about 10 minutes or so. Maybe I should have combined the 2 crusts together, e.g. rolled them out, to get the right size. Oh yes, don't forget adding the potatoes (2, cut small cubes), thyme, rosemary and poultry seasoning. Truly a great meal. Now that you found it...make it!
