"I'm sorry, but this dish was not worth it.
This dish was much too rich. Cheese stuffing with cheese sauce and cheese on top is just too much cheese. The dish was very dense with a monotone of flavor. I was hoping the vegetables and possibly peas would add sweetness and different levels of flavor, however it ended up tasting like plain melted cheese. This also muted the flavor of the delicious and moderately expensive fontina. This dish needs some fruit to add sweetness. I will certainly make this again, but will use tomato sauce instead of the fontina fonduta. The filling was excellent and so was the sauce, they just don't go well together. I understand that she was avoiding tomatoes because it is a winter dish, but if you want it to taste better I recommend tomato sauce.
Reviewed Pot Roast
"I did not eat this roast because I am a vegetarian, but my boyfriend thought it was amazing.
To address the complaints of those who do not like salt: USE LESS SALT! Quit whining.
I know my boyfriend is not a fan of salty so instead of using buillon and water I used low sodium beef stock. I covered the roast ¾ with juices. This was my first time using a crock pot and I was very happy with the outcome. Don't take the house seasoning so literally, it's just meant to be her trademark . Just use salt and pepper, and only use a teaspoon! I think the problem here is that people misread the recipe and used an entire cup of salt, 3 bay leaves are a very subtle flavor and would not ruin your roast. If you had to throw your roast out you must have done something horribly wrong because the recipe was very easy to follow.
Bottom line: I definitely recommend making this. It was easy, delicious, and economical. Thanks!
Reviewed Butter and Jam Thumbprints
"This recipe is perfect. I made them as gifts and my boyfriend loves them!
If your dough flattens out during baking consider the following:
1)Did you use an X-large egg? The recipe calls for a large egg.
2)Did you use stick butter? If you MUST use margarine use stick margarine. Tub butters and margarines are meant to be spreadable and are NOT made for baking
3)Is it cool enough? Butter doughs may get too soft and spread during warmer seasons. If your dough is spreading out too much chill it in the refrigerator for 30+min. Do not use a cookie sheet that is hotter than room temperature. Let your cookie sheet cool down/chill in the freezer between batches.
4)How big are your cookies? The dough should have a diameter of one inch. I might suggest even smaller.
5) Are you using jam? The recipe calls for jam, not preserves, spread, or jelly. The others are too watery.
I recommend using small grain sugar for rolling, not large grain. Rolling in large grain is better for large, chewy cookies.
