Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
These cookies are amazing! I used all vegetable shortening instead of butter since that was all I had onhand, and I beat the shortening, eggs, vanilla and sugar for probably ten minutes to get it as creamy as possible before adding everything else. I put them in for 8 minutes, because I like a softer cookie, and my fiance and I have eaten about half of them already -- and the last batch is still in the oven! Thanks for a great recipe -- this one's a keeper.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
This is an awesome recipe, especially since I've been trying to cut all pre-packaged foods out of my diet! I used a mix of Gala and Granny Smith apples, and used brown sugar instead of white. Also, I don't put in the whole 1/4 Cup of sugar at once. I put in about half, then after I blend the applesauce in my food processor, I add more sugar to taste. I found my first batch was quite sweet, and this was the perfect way to sweeten it to my exact tastes. Altogether, this is great and simple recipe!

Kay's Spaghetti and Lasagna Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
I'm a vegetarian who was trying to be nice for my fiance by making him this meat-astic spaghetti sauce! He loved it, but I didn't give it fice stars for a couple reasons. First, I found the ingredient list lacking a little bit, so I added some sliced mushrooms for flavour. Also, I followed the advice of other reviewers and used only one Tbsp. of sugar. Lastly, this may be the vegetarian in me talking, but I thought you were supposed to drain the beef grease -- in the recipe it said to cook the beef with the onions, peppers, etc., so I did. My fiance found the finished product a little on the thin side, so next time, I'll cook the beef separately from the veggies and drain it before combining the two with the tomato sauces. Altogether, though, very satisfying!

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2008
I absolutely love this recipe. I make it in my food processor, using two baby dill pickles, one peeled carrot, a can of chickpeas, a bit of dill, black pepper, celery and low-fat miracle whip. It's so easy, and an awesome lunch as a sandwich, veggie dip, or spread on Wasa bread.

Banana Chip Muffins II

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
Really good recipe - I used 1/2 a cup of whole wheat flour and 1 cup of white, and I used brown sugar instead of white and they turned out great! My only complaint is they only made 10 muffins! That would be fine if they weren't so good that they got gobbled up almost immediately! I think I'll double the recipe next time...

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
I am not exaggerating when I say this is hands-down the best banana cake I have ever had. My husband and I made it for his mom's birthday, and it got rave reviews. The icing was to die for, and the cake was light, fluffy and banana-y, but not bread like at all. It was just incredible, so two thumbs up for this one! I'd make it again in a second!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
I calculated the nutrition info for these muffins, in case anyone's wondering -- if you make 24 muffins, they're 192 calories each with 31 grams of carbs, 6.45 grams of fat and 3.5 grams of protein. *** Easy, quick and fantastic - I followed the recipe exactly and was glad I did. I was able to make 12 mini-loafs and they were light, chocolatey and had a hint of spice that really complemented the pumpkin. A great way to use up some extra pumpkin, and I'll definitely make them again! Thanks for the great recipe!

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
These were quite good - I made some regular sized muffins and some mini-muffins. I cut the oil in half and used half applesauce, as well. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because, as my husband says, they didn't have that wow factor, but they were good nonetheless.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
Made this recipe as stated, except we used chicken stock in the place of beer as many reviewers suggested, and it was a hit! It was thick,more like a chili than a soup, and turned out nice and spicy, tomato-y and healthy, as well, which is a nice bonus... A great recipe - thanks!

Pfeffernuesse

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
Out of a dozen rich, chocolatey, Christmasy baking items I made this year, these were my husband's favourite -- they're soft on the inside and the outside has a nice crunch... the spice is nice and unexpected. All around awesome Christmas cookie!

Butter Snow Flakes

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
These were light and delicious - I took out the cinnamon and orange zest and put in a little blue food colouring and these made beautiful little snow flakes with my cookie press. The dough worked really well in the press and the cookies didn't spread so I could make a ton at a time. Thanks for a great recipe!

Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
So good - flaky and warm. The perfect comfort food. I skipped the cayenne pepper because I didn't have any and they were still awesome.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
This cake was SO good - I used cake flour, but other than that, made the recipe as it was written. I made two layers, made a simple chocolate frosting to put on top/in between the layers, and the cake was a hit. Served it at a friend's birthday and everyone loved it! It was moist, chocolatey and really, really good.

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
This cake is amazing - so rich and dense and chocolatey. I made it in a springform pan and was glad I did because I don't know how I'd have gotten it out otherwise. Served it with vanilla whipped cream and raspberry coulis - awesome. Thanks for the recipe!

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
Fan-flippin'-tastic! I doubled the spices, added 1/4 cup of chopped crystalized ginger, made it in a bundt pan and glazed it with a vanilla glaze and oh man, was it ever awesome. It's 25 below 0 here, and this cake is perfect on a winter day - nice and spicy, warm, dense and moist. My mother-in-law said it was just like her nana used to make! Quite the compliment! Thanks for a great recipe!

Jo-Ann's Power Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
I love this recipe! It's so versatile and so much better than boxed granola bars... I like to skip the cinnamon and put in a tsp. of vanilla, 1/2 cup peanuts, 1/4 cup chocolate chips and 1/4 cup coconut or raisins. Also good is 1/4 tsp. almond extract, 1/2 cup toasted almonds and 1/2 cup dried, chopped cherries. And I like to put in mixed dried fruit, cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. vanilla and walnuts, too. They're awesome - you can have a different bar every time!

Nicole's Winter Carrot Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
The cooking time is NOT a mistake. I don't know if you're aware of this, reviewers who said that it was a mistake, but ovens are quite often calibrated differently depending on their age and brand. Also, altitude makes quite a difference in how baked goods turn out. When I cook my bread, it comes out perfectly at the time stated. However, I specifically included "or until toothpick comes out clean" to ensure that everyone else who made this bread would take it out at the right time. Perhaps before you review, you should a) read the recipe more closely and b) pay more attention to the things you're baking.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
Holy hot dogs these are good! Crispy edges, chewy middles... mmm.. My husband and I love the spiciness of them (I accidentally put in a full tbsp. of cinnamon, but they still taste awesome to me) and because we love ginger, I added about 1/4 cup of chopped crystallized ginger. Other than that, I left the recipe as is. Oh man, these are really, really good. Thanks for an awesome recipe!

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
Wish I could review it 4.5 stars, but alas -- I made this with only a few alterations, which I would DEFINITELY suggest for added depth and flavour. First, I added two chopped garlic cloves to the onions and celery. Then when I added the broccoli, I also added 3 small, chopped and peeled potatoes to add a bit of depth and thickness. I also chopped up some old cheddar cheese -- about 3 or 4 tbsp worth -- and added it to the soup. Lastly, when I pureed it, I took out a few scoops of hte broccoli and put it back in after pureeing the rest. A very hearty, delicious and healthy soup! Thanks for the recipe!
