Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Creamless creamy tomato soup

    • SilverSage on January 06, 2011

      Not one of ATK's better recipes. Weird texture. Won't make it again.

  • Fluffy mashed potatoes

    • SilverSage on January 06, 2011

      Who'd have thought you could reinvent the simple mashed potato? The rinsing-steaming-rinsing-steaming-ricing is a bunch of extra work, but it sure is worth it. I've never eaten better mash!

  • Blueberry pie

    • SilverSage on January 06, 2011

      I didn't like this. It tasted like apple-blueberry, not just blueberry. And the texture was weird. The crust was awful, the pie mediocre.

  • Foolproof pie dough

    • SilverSage on January 06, 2011

      FAIL !!! I tried it twice, assuming I had erred the first time. Both times failed. This is the worst pie crust I've ever made. It came out more like bread than pastry. Won't hold a crimp, so don't waste your time making a pretty fluted edge - it will just puff up and you'll lose it all. My family told me to go back to my regular crust.

  • Applesauce snack cake

    • Analyze on March 12, 2019

      This is SO good! The base cake has a wonderful apple flavor and a great texture. I tried both this recipe, and the Oat-Nut Streusel variation. My husband, who doesn't normally like oat streusel or sweet quick breads, loved the streusel variation. I actually preferred this original version with the cinnamon-sugar topping, as in my opinion it complements the apple flavor in the cake better, and actually makes the cake taste more apple-y. You can't go wrong with either version, or try half and half like I did :) I already have several apple cake recipes that I love, and didn't think I needed another, but I did! I'm excited to try the ginger-cardamom version next. Personally, we had it for breakfast, but this would be great with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream too.

A tip I read online and am eager to try next time: Leave the applesauce in the fridge. Instead of waiting for the dried apple & cider mixture to cool, blend them at once, to bring both to room temperature sooner.

  • Fluffy yellow layer cake

    • stef on March 13, 2016

      Made it into cupcakes. The 3 tbls oil makes it nice and moist. Bakes 19 minutes. Icing was sour cream chocolate. Everyone loved it.
