Mama's Italian Wedding Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
Soup was to die for and I didn't get to put in the greens!! I read through the reviews and decided to use Kale instead of spinach. Went to the store and bought everything I didn't have and started cooking. Got towards the end and went to add the Kale and couldn't find it!! Found it 3 days later in the back of the car!! YUK!! At least I didn't leave it at the store!! The soup was very good though and my lady friend liked it as well. I guess that's all that counts!

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
Great cobbler. I didn't have any fresh peaches (good ones are almost impossible to get in the islands) so I used frozen peaches. Other than forgetting the lemon juice I followed the recipe as written. Then only thing I'll do different next time is go about another 5 minutes on the bake. Mine was a bit dough in the middle. Sure didn't stop people from eating it though!! LOL

Pillow-Soft Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
Nice rolls... But just didn't hit the spot for me. I'll try another recipe next time. They looked wonderful but there was just something lacking in the flavor and texture. The hostess liked them and so did the other guests. I think I'm just becoming a bread snob! LOL!

Oatmeal Yeast Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
I made this to have on hand for sandwiches. I followed the recipe all the way through and in the end just didn't care for it. There was just something about the texture I didn't care for. I gave one loaf away and sliced the second loaf up and let it get stale and made bread pudding with raisins with it! The bread was OK that way!

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
Made this soup and followed the recipe pretty closely. I didn't have any crushed red pepper flakes so I used 3/4 tsp of Cayenne pepper instead (little warm on the taste buds!). I also added extra bacon to get more of that wonderful taste! Company loved the soup and I served it with homemade Italian bread from this site. What a hit!

Potato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
Very good soup! I didn't have any leftover potatoes and used the instant instead. Followed the recipe pretty close, did put in some carrots for a little color and about a half pound of bacon that I crisped up in the microwave using a "BaconWave" Love it! Sprinkled a little cheddar on top of the soup in the bowl. I'll be sad when the leftovers are gone.

Wilderness Place Lodge Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
Made these cookies Sunday morning to take to a Punaweb beach day in Hilo. They were fantastic!! and nobody didn't eat at least one. I took 3 dozen of the 5 that the recipe made and ALL were gone when I came home. Did I mention there was only 17 people there??!! I didn't make any changes and WILL make more. Next time I think I'll add some coconut extract to enhance the flavor of the shredded coconut. It was lost a bit in the rest of the other flavors. I used a scale to make the cookies. Weighed the total dough in grams and divided by 60 and just rolled out loose balls of 48 grams. They all baked evenly at 14 minutes.

Rustic Multi-Grain Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
I made this bread today and it is truly a VERY good bread. I trade bread for fresh eggs and the couple that I get the eggs from was over tonight for cocktails and dominoes. I gave them some of the "new" recipe I found and asked if it was "good enough" to trade for eggs. They really loved the bread too! I did read through the review first and made a few changes. I used 1/4c each of light molasses and honey (no sugar). Added 2 tablespoons of flax seed, about 1/2c of quick oats to the hot milk and water (soaked the oats while the temperature came down to 110-120) and 1 Tablespoon of vital wheat gluten. I baked the bread at 375 for about 25 minutes and found the crust starting to get dark so I dropped the heat back to 350, stuck in the probe of my thermometer and baked until the internal temperature was about 192*. Next time I'm going to up the flax and add some soaked wheat berries for a little more "chew" This is a very good recipe to "tinker" with. A true Keeper!

Soft Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
This was the first time making sugar cookies. I followed the advice of some of the reviewers. I used 3 cups flour, baked at 350*, and sprinkled with colored sugar. What a treat and they went over well at the cooking club cookie exchange this last weekend!

Cardamom Almond Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
This biscotti recipe is awesome! I did make a couple of changes that was suggested by others. One was to add an extra spoon full of sour cream and 2 tablespoons of rum to help the dough to be a little more manageable. The other thing was to increase the cardamom to 1 1/2 tsp. and add 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. When working with the dough I found it so easy to spray Pam on a cookie sheet and then spoon the dough out in a long line and then used a spatula to form the dough into logs. Baked for 25 minutes and then slid them off the sheet to the cutting board where I used my bread knife cut the logs into 3/4" pieces on a diagonal. Back on the sheet and baked for 12 minutes to make crunchy and golden color. What a hit they were a our cooking clubs cookie exchange!

Mama D's Italian Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
Last Friday I made a double batch of this bread (6 loaves) for a lasagna party I gave. I followed most of the recipe but passed on dividing the dough into thirds until after the end of the second rise. With the first batch, I formed the loaves into baguettes and cut each loaf with about 4 diagonal cuts. The second batch I formed into batards, floured the top and made a single cut from end to end just before going into the oven. I steamed with ice in a hot pan under the stone and sprayed the back of the oven for about 8-10 minutes. The batards (second batch) had more eye appeal than the loaves formed into baguettes. Went through more than 3 loaves with just 14 guests! I'll be making this again for a bigger party in January.

Cherry Mandlbrodt

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
This was the first time I've made a biscotti type of cookie. Turned out both tasting good and very nice to look at! I made them per the recipe and have them in an air tight container to take to the Kea'au Christmas parade next week. Along with some peppermint schnapps to put in the hot coco!! Yummy

Campfire Bean 'N' Ham Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
This was good but I think ham hocks are better in a pot of black eye peas! Got lot lots of left overs so I won't starve for several days!

Parmesan Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
I tried this tonight. I didn't have red potatoes so I used a single large russet baker halved and cubed. I wasn't to excited about it because it was quite dry, but will try it again with red potatoes to see if it is moister than with the russet. Next time I may put some foil over the dish and then crisp it up under the broiler to finish it.

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
Very good bread. I was approached to trade a loaf of home made bread for a dozen home grown fresh eggs. Such a deal! I ask what their taste was and all they wanted was whole wheat sandwich bread for left over turkey! I made this recipe and they loved it and said to be sure to let them know when I needed more eggs! This was a very easy bread to do and the size (3 loaves) fit my baking stone perfectly. This will go into my rotation for sure!

Corned Beef and Cabbage I

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
Made this for a dinner party of six tonight and turned out tasting good but even after cooking for almost 4 hour at 200* the meat just wasn't as tender as I'd hoped it would be. I will try it again and see if it gets any better.

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
I made these tonight to go along with the Corned beef and Cabbage I, from this site. I followed the recipe and the only thing I did different was to bush a little butter on top after they came out of the oven. I was a little worried when I ate one before the company got here as it tasted a little bland and thought about what some of the reviewers said about increasing the salt but during the dinner, everybody was raving about the rolls and sure enough when you added regular salted butter to the rolls they became amazing! Will use this recipe again!

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
Wonderful pie! I like apple pie but this was over the top with great and interesting flavors. You should try this recipe at least once as its written before you add anything "extras" to it. I didn't do the lattice top as I was using the "Never Fail Pie Crust II" from this site. It was too soft to try the pretty crust. I'll just have to learn to make a "real" pie crust! **UDATE** 11/8/11 Made this recipe again using the "Flaky Food Processor Pie Crust" recipe from this site. What a wonderful recipe to work with! Pairing these two recipes move this apple pie to more than 5 Star status for me. Made the pie taste better with a crust that was as good as or better than many bakeries!!

Cheesiest Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
Very good soup! Made a few of the changes the other reviewer posted and my guest loved it. The only problem I had was due to my gas stove. I had it on low on the smallest heat level and it still got a rolling boil and caused the cheese to separate. Still tasted good just not pretty!

Tender Pork Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
Made this a few weeks back and forgot to review it. I thought it was tasty but just didn't ring my bell enough for 5 stars. Thanks for posting the recipe though.
