Quick and easy as promised and ever so yummy. Used the full amt of sugar and everything and it was fine, just enough for the family."

First brownies in Israel! As-is, I was immediately suspicious that these wouldn';t have enough chocolate. Checking with similar recipes, I bumped the cocoa up almost to half a cup, which was just right. Everything else, I kept the same. Probably baked hotter than directed (using a toaster oven which is very imprecise), just until the top ...

Quick, easy, yummy! I used 1/2 the amount of gelatin (14g) because 1oz/28g it seemed like a LOT. Even with cutting down the amount, I had a bit of difficulty getting all the gelatin to dissolve in such a small amount of liquid; the boiling water cooled off way too fast. So I heated the water/gelatin mix a bit, gently, on the stovetop, and it d...

Jul 2, 2013 in null on Food.com

Very yummy, and a nice change from sweet corn puddings. I would make this again with soup and maybe a salad as it doesn';t exactly carry an entire meal on its own. Also, I used homemade creamed corn, which was delicious, but dryer than the canned variety and I think it made the corn pudding just a tad dry. Added a bit of milk but it was st...

Very decent lemon bars. Made the crust with healthy margarine (SmartBalance / EarthBalance?) in the food processor. Then used the food processor to make the filling, so these went together super-fast and yummily enjoyed by all. I prefer a bit of zest in the crust, which adds a subtle lemony element, so I would probably add that next time. Pro...

Thanks! This rose perfectly (like another reviewer, I was worried it was too small for the pan, so I let it rise, lightly covered in plastic wrap, for half an hour before baking). It's a delightful not-too-sweet pareve treat, and a great way to use extra starter!"

Absolutely excellent - rich and dense and everything you'd want in a decadent buttery pound cake. We even licked the beaters clean, the batter was so delicious. I used Crisco buttery and the taste didn't overwhelm the real butter at all, though I was a bit concerned by a previous review that said all they could taste was shortening. Please igno"

Rich and yummy! Used fake broth (pareve chicken soup mix) but otherwise verbatim and wow - what an awesome combination of flavours. Kind of like sumptuous, decadent mac & cheese. ;-) A hit with grownups, big & little kids. Made as a main, but it presents itself more like a side dish, so I'd probably pair it with something next time... perhaps...

Aug 3, 2012 in null on Food.com

Very nice; tastes pretty much how I remembered it. I scaled this way down and somewhat guessed at the proportions, but it worked out. Also, no dried mustard, so I used a bit of dijon (n yellow mustard either). Probably a more sophisticated "whiz" than the original, but still nicely spreadable, with just the right flavour."

Wow! This was perfect, but what I especially appreciated was the no-curdle way of introducing the hot cornstarch mixture to the beaten egg yolks. I always get curdles when I make custard - I even have a technique of "saving" them in the food processor - but this time, it was totally unnecessary, as it came out perfectly, no lumps, the very first"

Well, it's definitely a poached egg, and it's definitely yummy, but there's only one of it. :-) The egg was also overdone after 48 seconds, so less time in my microwave, I guess. I would love to know what timing / quantities can be used for multiple eggs - like maybe TWO? One looks so lonely..."

This is the fantastic all-purpose chocolate filling I have been looking for for a LONG time. Could easily be adapted to fill babkas, rogelach, etc., as every other filling I've tried tends to vanish during baking.
I was about to use chocolate chips in my hamentashen, but this recipe made me glad I hadn't. This filling is gooey, rich and del...

Feb 28, 2012 in null on Food.com

At best, this recipe yields a fresh cheese like ricotta or paneer. I have made this many times, and it's very nice as a spread or (depending on how much you drain it) added into other dishes.
But what we serve on poutine is CHEDDAR curds, which are indeed curdled, but they are then cultured and "coddled" at a warm temperature to develop the ...

Oh, my gosh... so easy and quick. I only had 1/4 cup of margarine, so I added a dash of oil as well and these turned out absolutely fine. Better than fine; they were stupendous, nice and hot on the side of a pot of winter pressure-cooker stew. My starter was pretty wet, but if I was using my usual firm starter, it would probably have been too ...

Wow... these came very, VERY closer to 5 stars, except I usually use butter, so they don't have that wonderful taste. However, I'm astonished that I could make this so easily! I came in with hungry children at 2:00, and by 2:30, everybody was snacking on fresh cheddar scones. To make scones, roll it in a circle and just cut out wedge shapes - ...

I was looking for a beer batter recipe to make corn fritters. My family LOVES corn fritters, and this recipe more than satisfied everybody. Don't worry if you don't like beer - it just gives a yeasty "depth" to the flavour; there is no "beer" taste in the finished batter. Crispy on the outside, satisfyingly rich and chewy inside... and you cou...

Nice flavour, but needs more moisture to save it from mediocrity. This wasn't a bad cake, but not up to our usual high standards. I didn't swirl the chocolate properly, which is my fault, but the cake itself came out extremely dry.
