Sea Bass Cuban Style

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
This was so good! I made 2 1/2 substitutions in this recipe...first, I could not find sea bass anywhere in this town, so I used rockfish, second, I couldn't find my red pepper flakes anywhere, either, so I used a pinch of cayenne! The 1/2 substitution was in the form of using a shallot in place of an onion...they are in the same ballpark, so it only counts as a half! Delicious recipe and I will make this again!

Cuban Water Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
This bread has a really good taste, I really thought it would be bland, but it's not. I kept adding in the flour 1 cup at a time and it didn't take anywhere near 8 cups, I think I only used 5 or something like that. I'm not sure what I did, but it didn't rise very well, no matter, I baked it anyway and my husband and I both enjoyed this addition to our Cuban meal...I will make this bread again! And get it right the next time...thanks for a great recipe!

Excellent Apple Gingerbread

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2010
This is super good! I didn't add the candied walnuts to the top because of allergies and I also just made one layer instead of 2. But the taste is phenominal, thanks for a great recipe!

Atta (Whole Wheat) Halwa

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
I really didn't know to expect when I made this and I was wonderfully suprised. I didn't have cashews, I only had hazelnuts, so I improvised with those, other than that, I cut the recipe in half as there were only 2 of us. This is the perfect dessert after a spicy Indian meal. Thanks for the recipe!

Walnut Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2010
This bread is really good...I didn't have any walnuts so I added hazelnuts instead, but that, in itself doesn't hide the actual flavor of the bread...this was the first bread I have ever baked and it came out just fine!

Quick Yeast Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
This was the first time I have ever used yeast and this recipe was really simple to follow and I followed exactly. These rolls are delicious, I didn't have any problems with the dough not going into the muffin cups and they baked up huge and fluffy and have a wonderful taste.

Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
I made this and it was sooo good! I read the reviews and one of the more popular things to do was to make double the sauce...I didn't do that, I was only making this for 2. What I did do is zest 2 baby lemons and added 1/2 the zest to the flour mixture that breaded the chicken and the other half into the sauce...so good!

Peanut Butter Cookies VII

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
I, too, had a problem with crumbly dough. I switched up 1/2 a cup of the white sugar for 1/2 cup of dark brown and it made them extremely moist, even after sitting out all night. I also added the extra 1/4 cup of peanut butter that several reviewers recommended adding. I am not a peanut butter fan, that would be my husband's department and he completely loved these, he said they were better than his mother's and that's a super hard act to follow. I like the fact that these only make around 2 dozen...with only 2 of us, things have a tendancy to go stale before they all get eaten. I will be using this as my peanut butter cookie recipe from now on. Thanks for the great recipe!

Orange Cream Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
Absolutely a 5 star recipe...I followed this exact and this was my first attempt at a cooked fudge and it is wonderful! I followed one reader's suggestion subbing powdered sugar for regular sugar and it is creamy, delicious and set up perfectly. Thanks for a wonderful recipe! Update! 12-18-11: I have made this recipe at Christmas time for the last three years. It turns out great every time if you use powdered sugar, granulated has always remained grainy every time I use it, but I just give those batches to people I don't like...this year, I switched out the orange extract for cherry extract and nixed the yellow food coloring and went with just the red...otherwise the recipe remained the same...Cherry Cream Fudge...HOLY YUM! This recipe is a super fun recipe to play around with, so get adventurous and try it!

Spumoni Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
I just made these again, three years later than the first time I made this recipe. I did a few tweaks. You can view the step-by-step photos at www.bakedlava.com I added 2 packages of pudding mix, a full cup of chopped pistachios and a 10-ounce jar of cherries. It's funny, but the first time I made these, they did have an odd, greenish tint to them...with 2 boxes of pudding mix, that tint was just not there. This is just a great spin off a chocolate chip cookie recipe and it is going on my Christmas platters this year. I highly recommend this recipe, either as is, or with my tweaks...it is tasty either way you go!

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
Oh, my...I followed a few of the suggestions, such as using extracts in the egg whites instead of water and using 2 egg whites. I used 1 teaspoon of rum extract and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg. Really super good!
